Re: Cloth diapering a newborn for the first time!
a rental is a good idea...the simplex are my fave. ds was born 2 oz shy of 11 lbs, is six weeks, in 6 mos clothes, but they still fit (although barely, lol.)
I tried nb: grovia, bg, tots bots, simplex and lil joeys--tots bots and simplex are by far superior in fit and absorbancy. I found bg to be awkward in fit even on my lg nb...grovias don't strtch/conform to baby well, lil fjoeys took too long to dry and absorbancy was outgrown fast. He just outgrew the tots bots and I loved the simplex so much that I am sizing up to meds in them. HTH!
