what is a fitted?
it is a completely absorbent diaper made of several various layers of absorbent fabrics. usually a really cute print for the outer layer, which is normally a knit fabric or high quality woven. the other layers may include organic bamboo velour or cotton velour, bamboo fleece and stretch fleece. fitteds are extremely absorbent, so the perfect nighttime solution. a good fitted will take several hours to become wet all the way through.
what makes them so absorbent?
they have a 'soaker sandwich' in the inside of the diaper. the soakers are extra layers of absorbent materials.
are these waterproof?
no. you need to use a cover with fitteds, since they do not have a waterproof layer incorporated in them.
what do you put over them?
you can use a PUL cover, fleece or wool over your fitted. or you can let your child run free in the fitted only. great when older. allows your child's behind to breath a little. personally i have been using mainly fleece over my fitteds. a much more breathable option for a cover than a PUL cover offers.
