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.
At 39.5 weeks my son was estimated at 8lbs 3oz. He was born at 41 weeks at 9lbs 10oz, so yeah... the late ultrasounds are way off!

Also wanted to add, I didn't CD my newbie right away. He was in newborn size sposies for at least a month!
