Re: Favorite system for a newborn?
I liked having a variety. Preemie prefolds fit my preemie perfect- he was 5.13 when he came home so not tiny- but too tiny for infants. I liked KL 0s too, but MUCH preferred the colors for softness. Now that I know more about CD I'd want to try other NB fitteds too. I liked the ease of pf during the day, they're cheap, you can go through a bunch and not fill the pail, wash and dry easy, make great burp cloths, etc. I had XS FB that did pretty good after the first couple weeks too. They need to fit well or they'll leak BF poo. I prefer soft stretchy covers. Green Earth covers were nice with the cord dip and so much softer than Proraps. Nikkis fit Zane weird, not sure why. I had some tiny wool too that was nice, but bulky. I'd go with shorts/longies instead of wool covers if I had to do it again- at least until he bulked up a bit. Covers with gussets really help hold in the poop.
I love pre-fitteds now, so I bet they would have been great on a NB.
No Mini Shower needed on BF poo. Just toss it in the pail and go.
