XP: Newborns in Loveybums?
Did anyone use Loveybums wool on their littles?
I'm interested in the jersey and crepe covers... Were they very bulky? I plan on using them over a combination of fitteds, cotton prefolds and sbish flats.

I would love to see pictures, if anyone has any! :wub:

I used them on our last one. I found the crepe to be too thin, and it didn't work very well at all. I prefer heavily felted interlock or knit for that reason.

The fit was OK. They seemed to be a little big, so they worked when she was about 8-10 lbs, but not right away. My last one was 6 and a half pounds at birth. I think I just really prefer pull up interlock instead of the snapping diaper cover kind.

I used a pull up style loveybums on my 3 month old when she was a newborn and hands down, it was my favorite cover for that stage.
When I got it I was worried it wouldn't fit because it was so tiny but it did! She was 7lbs 14oz at birth and it fit her for about 6 -8 weeks. I really wish I would have had more of them.
If we have any more children I will be buying a hole newborn stash!

Those are my favorites. I will look for a pic on our NB. I bought the jersey and interlock and loved them both. They are not as trim as PUL, but so soft, squishy, and stretchy the little extra bulk is ok. They just look so comfy. I swore our NB was the quietest in those wraps. :)

I don't have pics but I used the NB size. Loved it. I don't think the cover was bulky on its own but the combo of fitted plus cover was. They're so little that there's not much that is t bulky on them :)
