Unhappy cding newborn

Why in the heck am I having such a hard time
Im really starting to dislike cding Nothing fits her right and she leakes out of almost everything. The only thing that fits her are the Nb vb fitteds I made with nb proraps or preemie prefolds which I would have to change her like every 10 min cuz they dont hold much at all. She sleeps alot and I hate to keep waking her that often
Also I dont have enough diapers that fit so we use sposies at night and most of the time I use them during the day too cuz she doesnt leak out of them.
And if that wasnt enough Im having issues with Ethan and his cds too
I was loving cding up until now Im so sad
Thanks for listening and letting me vent

Hugs!

It can be hard when they have those chicken legs that nothing snugs around. My son was only 5.13 when he came home at 9 days. I found the best defense against leaks was a good cover. If the preemie pf work try doubling them up. You can trifold one down the center of another. I wouldn't wake her up! If she's wet enough the dipe wakes her then change her. As long as she's sleeping let her sleep. If you can afford a few fitteds, like KL 0s fine, if not try not to stress. She will grow, everything will fit, then she'll grow some more and everything will be too small. What other dipes do you have? Maybe we know some tricks, like crossing over the tabs/wings.

What issues are you having with ds's?

Try to just enjoy your babes. A little time in sposies isN'T the end of the world, even if it feels like it.

Re: cding newborn

I'm obviously NO help, since I've never CD'd during the newborn stage.



If it doesn't work right now, don't stress about it!! Enjoy your sweet baby! I'm sure in a few weeks everything will resolve itself, or you'll be able to figure out some tricks to make things work!



Good Luck Mama!

Re: cding newborn

I would also suggest trying a doubler in your prefold.

Re: cding newborn

Just remember prefolds do tend to leak, so make sure it's a cover that'll hold everything in.

What kind of pockets? Solids or prints? What are you stuffing with?
