Re: New to this need help PLEASE! :)
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!

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