The Review

Econobum cover and prefold used on a 4- 8 week old boy weighing 9 lbs- 12+ lbs heavy wetter.

Econobums greatest features are affordability, simple design and versatility to grow with your child. Cons, prefold is bulky for the newborn stage and can't be snappied or pinned once child reaches a certain size/weight but instead must be used padfolded in the cover.

I found that I could start using the cover almost immediately with my son, though he was born slightly larger than most at 9 lbs 2 oz. I did, however, find the econobum prefold bulky for the first few weeks. At about 3 weeks I began using the prefold- snappied to help contain the runny newborn poo and also because it decreased the bulk- and found it quilty and absorbent and its quality rivals my nicest prefolds.
Though the cover is a very simple design I find that I reach for it the most, it's reliable, fits over all of my prefolds, flats and fitteds and never causes red marks on his chunky thighs that some other covers do (you will notice these red marks in the picture from the cover I had just removed). Though there are no fancy designs I find it refreshing to look at a simple white or trimmed diaper cover.
I also enjoyed how easy the wash routine is with this diaper, no stuffing/unstuffing and I could literally just dump the contents of my wetbag directly into the wash without touching the diapers. This is a great diaper for anyone that wants a simple system or is looking for an economical alternative to disposables or more expensive cloth diaper styles.
