So, to round out our month long even of celebrating the more traditional styles of cloth diapering, I am very surprised at how easy it all is. We've been modern cloth diaper users for 11 months now and we have primarily been pocket users. Now, while I prefer pockets and they will always be my go to style; I am very happy to have an alternative that is not intimidating anymore.
I am in love with my Zookies cover. I love all of the choices and variations that it lends itself to; between using prefolds in different folding fashions or just putting in a pocket insert. What ever I have on hand, I can use. I really love that I can use it a couple of times through the day before needing to wash it. I also love how easy it is to wash too. I find that the covers and prefolds don't hold in build up stink like my pockets do and they are much easier when it comes to a wash routine....not to mention the cost effectiveness compared to high end pocket diapers. (Which I would classify my Zookies cover as a high end cover!) I love how Little Man likes his cover too.
My favorite use for our cover is for daytime play. I also love having it around for those times (once a month it seems) that I have to strip or soak our pocket diapers. It is just so much easier to do them all at once than to try to split them into two loads. Now I have the convenience of our cover to use during those times.
I think that when the next little one comes around, I am going to try using a newborn sized cover and prefolds for those first few weeks when our one size pocket diapers are still just a little too big. I think that this would be the most economical solution for that time, plus I know that I can do it now! I'm looking forward to picking a few out.
Thank you for following during Under Cover month. I have many fun things in store for the next coming months!
