I know this board is a little slow, but maybe someone will see this.
I plant to exclusively CD. I've been buying sew your own kits from here and sewing them up myself. I really like them, it takes no time to sew them (I can do 2-3 while watching a movie, so with a little distraction). The only thing I haven't done is the snaps as they have the snap machines on backorder. Here is the kit:
Because the baby is due in January, I'm also currently crocheting a bunch of wool soakers and longies to use. I'm still a little confused on the care of these though (need to do more research on lanolin and such) so I know I'm going to need some regular covers.
The same link/place above sells pre-cut PUL in their diaper pattern, but no instructions or kits for making covers. I was thinking that with a little modification, I could incorporate the PUL onto one of the diaper kit parts to make an AIO. I have 4 PUL precut pieces I got with my last order that I plan to test out on a few of the kits when I have time.
They do have a new PUL cover pattern/kit thing which is just a PUL piece that you sew (no liner attached to it), and then add snaps or velcro. Would just a one layer PUL cover work? Because that could be an option. Only $6 each, approx which is much cheaper than pre-made.
Unfortunately, I've searched high and low and diaper covers are impossible to find in stores here. You used to be able to get kushies at BRU, but not anymore. The only place I'm able to find any is at the high-end baby boutiques and they are super expensive.
Suggestions? I've heard of people making covers out of fleece from the fabric store as well - how good is that for leaks?
