Re: Newborn stash...
Hm...I didn't like the fit of the Softbums Echo on my newbie at all. My favorite cover, actually, was Proraps. I always heard people say they liked those best for newborns, but I always thought they looked cheap and boring. I ended up with a few--I think I got them just 'cause they were so cheap--and they were the ONLY covers that fit my DD before her cord fell off. She was 7 lbs 10 oz when she was born and the proraps fit great. Now she's over 10 lbs (maybe 11!), and she's still wearing them over boingo'd prefolds.
