Re: New to this need help PLEASE! :)
Even a larger newborn would most likely still fit in newborn sizes. Although since those scans are notoriously inaccurate I would not plan a stash around them. Your LO could be only 7-8 lbs at term maybe. I think 3 dozen smalls are plenty. They might be really bulky but should still work on a larger newborn. FWIW my 3 week old is about 9lbs and still in newborn prefolds and covers. I would think 6 covers is a good number to shoot for. Thirsties Duo would be a good option for covers. You could then trifold the prefolds in a larger cover like Flips or stuff into pockets once they are outgrown.
