I have been using Wallypop fleecy wrap covers for about a year now and love them for many reasons. They are made with thick quality Malden Mills fleece which makes all the difference. Plus, the wide touchtape tabs and soft stretchy waistband and gussets ensure a great fit on my son every time. And the generous design of these covers will accommodate and hold in anything you want to “pack” in there – fitteds, flats, prefolds plus doublers, inserts, etc.
One really great thing you’ll discover when using fleece covers is that you don’t have to worry about red marks on your child’s legs and waist from the stretchy bands. If you’ve got the right size fleece cover then rest assured that the soft and cozy fabric will be kind to their skin.
Even better, you can order the wraps in lightweight, midweight or heavyweight fleece depending on your needs. I have two ice blue lightweights that are perfect for daytime use, even in the summer (fleece is breathable), and three mid and heavyweights in pine, navy and rust that work for nighttime.
To use my Wallypop fleecy wraps, I first lay in a prefold.
This is what it looks like on my son:
I don’t obsess about getting a “low rise” or “bikini fit” under the belly button. With the higher rise, there’s no problem with stomach constriction or discomfort as long as your diaper cover is properly sized and has a comfortable waistband (fleece is soft and kind to the skin).
My 6th child is due this August and I’ve already purchased a few of the very economical Wallypop PUL covers to try for the first time. I can hardly wait! For now, I have to content myself with trying them out on my daughter’s baby dolls.
I love supporting Wallypop because it’s a small WAHM business that offers tried-and-true cloth diapering products, prompt and personal service and even custom work if you don’t see exactly what you want.
