and an extremely thin, cheap, one size cover. It comes in white only.
Leaked instantly! I suppose I should give it another chance, but I really don’t care to. I believe the intention is to re-use the cover, only changing the prefold (unless the cover gets really dirty).
At under $10 retail for a set of 1 cover and 1 prefold, this would be a very economical method of diapering, especially if you were to buy just a few, and fill in with plain old (decent) prefolds.
However, I feel that you’d be much better served to buy a few BG 3.0s (approximately 2x the cost of an econobum set) and wash twice per day, adding to your stash as you could (this is pretty much what I did).
I definitely do not see an econobum lasting through more than one child (I’d be surprised if it lasted more than a few months) nor would I expect it to have any resale value.
I’d definitely put this is the “penny wise, pound foolish” category.
