Sizing prefolds

Hello everyone,

This site seems primarily aimed towards moms, but I hope you won't mind an question from a soon-to-be-dad!

We are expecting our first child in December and we're working hard to build up our stash. We've decided to do mainly pocket diapers once baby fits in them, but we're trying to figure out what to do for the newborn phase.

We are planning to do prefolds (either Osocozy or Imagine with Thirsties Duo Wrap covers), but we're having trouble figuring out what size we want. From looking at the newborn size, it looks like baby would grow out of it pretty quickly. On the other hand, I'm worried if we start with infant, they'll be super bulky on the newborn.

I also notice that both companies offer a diaper that is shorter and designed to just go under the cover without a Snappi. Does that really work? It seems like, if they're not wrapped up in the diaper, the cover would get really messy, especially for an EBF baby.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!
