cloth diapering newbie twins

Hey All! I have cloth-diapered twins before, and had 3 full-time in diapers before for over a year, but didn't START cloth diapering until 6 months of age on. By that time I was able to have them fit in one-sized diapers. I have PLENTY of those as you can imagine having needed enough diapers to full-time do 3! I have never cloth-diapered twins before as newborns and was wanting to do just prefolds trifolded in a cover to make it economical and easy as that's what we pretty much do with our youngest now with the Flips, so there won't be a learning curve with my husband come time the new twins come

What are the best prefolds out there? Tell me as it has been a while since I've purchased diapers before so I'm out of the loop. Also best newborn cover for a potentially small baby (my previous twins were 4 and 5 pounds, however my youngest was born at over 10 pounds haha) best for trifolding a prefold? I LOOVED Nikky covers for my youngest when she was 6 months old as it was so soft and didn't leave red marks. I have heard that the Bummis Original Wrap and Bummis Super Brite Wrap are good for newborns for the fit, but I can't tell which one to get. The Original is cheaper (Bummis Original is cheaper).

tell me straight up what you would do if you had twins in cloth diapers
