Cloth diapering: The covers

Once I had my diapers, I needed covers to make them waterproof.

I used the New Conceptions pattern for the quick wrap. I used an inner layer of PUL fabric and an outer layer of a knit print fabric that I had in my fabric stash. I finished the edges with Fold over elastic.

These covers work well with prefold diapers, but my poopockets did not fit inside the smaller-sized covers.

For my poopockets, I use the Very Baby Sung Wrap cover.

You can purchase similar pre-made covers online.

***Key to cloth diapering****
Either your cover or your diaper needs to have gussets. The gussets stop the poopies from leaking out of the diaper onto clothes.
