Fitted love? — The Bump
Cloth Diapering

Fitted love?

If you love your fitteds...why? I see so many cute prints out there, but you have to put a cover over them, so what's the point? And they don't seem to be really any cheaper than a pocket diaper, plus you still have to buy separate covers. So I just don't get it?

I'm new to CDing and got a few fitteds in my trial, and I like them, but I'm not really seeing the benefit of them over a pocket, AIO, or even a cover/insert setup like a flip where at least the inserts are cheaper than a whole fitted diaper?

  • You don't have to stuff it, it's crazy absorbent, it's breathable under wool, you don't always need a cover around the house.

  • Some are much more absorbent than others.  With the ones I have, DD can go coverless around the house in them for awhile.  I like that they allow her skin to breathe.  When paired with wool covers, they're the only thing that are bulletproof for her for 12+ hours overnight.  She's a tummy sleeper and was a heavy wetter until recently, so that combo meant pockets didn't work overnight for her, no matter what we did.  I just really love that with fitteds she has natural fibers against her skin, they're super soft, and contain everything.  Plus they're cute :)

    Which fitteds do you use?

  • I hadn't thought about them being breathable, good point! So some of them soak up pee enough that you're comfortable letting LO play around the house in them without them leaking through??

  • For us fitted and wool overnight are bulletproof.  During the day however they aren't practical for us.  He's such a heavy wetter we can't go coverless and they tend to be pretty bulky.

    My favorites are twinkie tush, but I also really like goodmama (daytime only), Bububebe, and Sbish OBF.

  • The old-school Thirsties sized fitteds were what fit my daughter best during the NB phase.  LOVED them.  They are absorbent, and the cover + fitted is pretty leakproof.  I buy all solids, so prints aren't a consideration for me.

    The new-style Thirsties fab fitteds are awesome.  We stuff with a hemp insert and use for overnight.  She's a heavy wetter and HATES being wet - but she can easily wear a fitted + insert for 8 hours with no issue.  It's awesome.

    I have AIOs as well, and I also stuff them, but they don't have the double leg gussets.  The Duo Diapers are also stuffable, but the only blowout I had leaked out the legs and top - a comparable sized mega-poop in a fitted didn't have that issue, because of the double protection.

    They are more expensive though, it's true.

  • DD sleeps in wool + fitted at night- no more chapped butt in the morning! I have a totbots stretch bamboozle, a kissaluvs m/l and an itti bitti boo/ d'lish (can't remember which is fitted) I really like all of them. I agree about not being into prints though. 
  • Fitteds and wool is pretty much all we use. Night and day. For day we use Sbish, TT, or TBs. Night is usually a TT, B4 or an OSC. Fitteds are super absorbent and breathable. And very cute.
