Looking for advice on newborn prefolds
Hi there!

I'm very new to the whole cloth diapering scene.

I got some Bummis Diaper Covers - Super Prints(7-10lbs) covers for a steal of a deal, and now I'm in search of some prefolds to use with them.

I'm looking for something very affordable because he is likely not going to be in these for long. I'd be willing to pay a little bit more if they can be used a bit longer with my Kushies Diaper Wrap (10lbs-22lbs)

Any advice?

Check out - newborn imagine pfs are $15/dz + shipping.
You can also look at - they have infant pfs for I think $1.50 each and shipping is free.

Re: Looking for advice on newborn prefolds
I prefer GMD/Green Mountain Diapers, orange edge/newborn unbleached prefolds, because they are the only newborn prefold that is 4x8x4. I want the extra absorbancy, and they will work as doublers down the road, as my little one gets older. I also love "sized" prefolds because I don't like extra bulky diapers that are too large, on such a tiny new one. I don't mind that my baby will get about 6 weeks use of the newborn, before I go up into the smalls. I have two dozen GMD newborn/orange edge, and 1 dozen newborn/orange edge workhorse fitteds for my little girl right after birth. 6 regular Thirsties wraps for each size, NB/XS, Small, etc.

You could get only 2 dozen and wash more frequently? Then have the next size ready depending on how large or small your baby will be/is?

GMD resell value is nearly exactly what their cost is new, so keep that in mind! :)
