All about Fitteds
What is a Fitted Diaper and why should I use one?
A Fitted is a tailor made diaper with an Aplix (velcro) or Snap closure that hugs close to baby. This diaper does not require folding or stuffing but does require a waterproof cover over it as the fitted itself is not waterproof. A fitted sits on the cloth diaper spectrum somewhere between prefolds and AIO's. Fitteds are super absorbent like the prefolds, but have a closure system on them so you don't have to deal with pins or a snappi like you do with prefolds. On the other side, Fitteds and covers are cheaper than most pockets or AIO's.
Simple to Use
Can use without waterproof cover to “air out” baby bum
Come in a variety of fabric options for comfort, absorbency, and preference
Many come in cute prints/patterns.
Requires waterproof cover
Some may take a long time to dry depending on the fabric
Takes a little more time to get on baby over AIO or Pockets as it is a two step process.
It all comes down to preference, some parents prefer to use fitteds and some do not. What do you think?
