Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

My prefolds are newborn size, and I snappi them....I would do aio's but I'm doing cloth to save money, and it's just not economical. Are flats trimmer?

You would not believe the resale value on newborn AIOs. But yes flats are trimmer.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

I'm using orange-edged GMD prefolds w/ Flip/Thirsties Duo/Bummis Super Whisper Wrap covers on my LO and they are definitely bulky but she is growing into them. I also have 3 xsmall Fuzzibunz that she does really well with. I haven't tried flats yet.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

Are they sized prefolds? I found them more bulky than sposies but he could/can still wear normal sized clothes under them.
Stick it out! Babies grow so fast and newborns are just a tad bit awkward lol.

I've got a couple small gdiapers...she's currently 7 lbs 10 oz, is she still too small for those? I like the soft cotton of the covers...these prowrap make me itch.

No she will fit. My DD1 fit into them at smaller than that.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

I really dislike too much bulk and I personally don't size up any more than if they were in disposables. I find that a correctly sized prefold or flat is the most trim on newborns. I have started with preemie prefolds for my last two newborns. Even doubled up in a cover is still not too bulky. Also small flats kite folded are pretty trim. I also like Nikky covers as they fit a newborn so well. I find that to be a better fit than AIO.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

I'm using nb AIOs until my LO can fit into the GroVia OS bc everything else is just too bulky! Don't get discouraged though! Your LO will fit the prefolds in no time!

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

I have found Fuzzibuns OS Elites to be fairly trim too. They are my go-to "on the run" diaper. Otherwise I really like bamboo prefolds in a Bummis original cover.

When DD was itty bitty I love my Swaddlebees Simplex AIO but they are spendy. We also used Imagine AIO's in newborn size and they were pretty trim (and not pricey like Swaddlebees).
