fitteds!!

When i first started using cloth - i bought AIO's as they seemed easier especially with 2 using them, after a few months I was seduced by the pretty pocket nappies available - so now have quite a few of these aswell. :oops:
I never thought i'd like fitteds - having to fasten two things on baby, bulky, long time to dry, etc.

BUUUUT recently SIL bought some for her baby, and reading about Hanna's made me think maybe I should try them....

So I make one from BV - not greatly impressed with the fit[bit big] so i made another yesterday and a wrap from some cotton pul fabric. DD3 wore it overnight - i did add extra stuffing though i doubt if it really needed it. Very impressed with its absorbtion - no chance of any leaks - i was just annoyed i didn't have another fitted ready to use with the wrap!!!

Now i'm waiting on more lastin to make some more fitteds, i've made another, smaller, wrap today but now need to find somewhere that sell FOE cheaply 'cause i've run out of that too. :roll:

The original fitted and wrap were going to be for SIL but as they were far too big for a newborn - I was forced to try them on my dd, :twisted: .

Looks like i've another addiction developing for fitteds and wraps now :lol: :lol: :lol:

that's one of the thing that put me off thinking fitteds would be bulky and clothes not fit.
but the bv is quite thin not like cotton terry :)

Yay :wine: :wine:

I looooove my fitteds with wool, given the choice i always choose my fitteds over my pockets! I started out with Fitteds and wraps which were ok but then discovered pretty pockets so started using pockets more, but now since discovering wool and pretty Fitteds, they are now my firm favourites :D :D

Me too - Bella has been wearing fitteds and wool for the last 10 days due to nasty teething bum rash :( And they have worked wonderfully.

I keep looking at pretty fitteds, but I really don't see the point in them as they will defo be covered. Most of mine are very boring.

I am really loving pretty woollens, and if my DH didn't keep a tight reign, I would be spending loads on new woollies :)

We're using fitteds and wool 90% of the time too. I love pretty woolies too, have got quite a few items on the way and I still want to buy more. :lol:

Yay, I'm a firm fan of fitteds too. They just seem more reliable than pockets somehow.

They're fun to put on, and they look nice hanging up to dry!

I started with fitteds and never thought I'd use pockets, but now I'm about 60/40 fitteds and (minkee!!) pockets. Fitteds are waaaaay more reliable - maybe I just don't change them often enough but Lili always gets wet around the legs with pockets, whereas with a good wrap we never get leaks with fitteds. :mrgreen:
