Re: What do I do with non pocket diapers??

In my experience using pockets on a newborn can be frustrating (and sewing pocket diapers for a variety of newborn shapes --FORGET IT--)

If all you've used a pockets (which are awesome) then I recommend using fitted diapers for your NB ... yes they need a cover, but that's it! just snap them on like your BG's then snap on the cover. I lay the fitted on top of the cover, so all I have to do is fasten diaper. fasten cover. done.
Personally, I like swaddlebees with bummis xs covers ... but there are many brands. Green Mountain Diapers (dot) com has an extensive section (with loads of photos) about which diapers fit inside which covers ... hth.
ETA: With a NB, it can't hurt to have a dozen pre-folds on hand ... they're easier than you think and they have a multitude of uses and come in handy for everything (resale value is about 80-95% too!)
