Do you sew? The rita's rump pattern is super easy and will fit a newborn. I made ours out of flannel on sale at joann's and stuffed with newborn prefolds. We never had a poop escape the leg elastics. We love the gmd fitteds, too, if you go that route. Get a snappy even if you get the ones with snaps since the waist on the yellows might be a little big for a newbie.
