Fitteds are a cloth diaper that also requires a cover but has elastic and fasteners on the diaper. Fitteds come in every material and color imaginable. They can be fastened with snaps, aplix (velcro) or use pins or a snappi. The most common questioned asked by new cloth diaper parents is “why spend money on a cute fitted when it just has to be covered?” It can be answered in a couple of ways: 1) we all like pretty underwear 2) you can let your little one go coverless and change them often. Fitteds take longer to dry and need to be thoroughly washed and rinsed to prevent buildup.
