Re: How many mamas skip newborn diapers?

i bought regular infant sized pfs before my son was born and just folded over in the front until he grew into them. he was 7 lbs 8 oz. at 18 lbs at 7 months hes just starting to out grow them. i got some free nb diaper covers on free cycle and flip covers for the rest of it and could not be happier! i have bought some thins here and there but i have spent less then $200 on a FULL stash

btw you also have to consider all the (disposable) diapers you wind up with from friends and family!

I went straight to small Imagine prefolds with Thirsties Duo Wraps. Never thought they were super bulky. The prefolds are supposed to fit from 7 lbs up.

I attempted to do cloth right away. My prefolds and covers were crazy bulky on my 8#15oz baby! And they were for newborns. It looked uncomfortable. When he got a little older he fit amazingly in the cloth (about a month old) so I just did my infant prefolds with flips 4.0's and freetimes. Simple. I wasn't gonna get a ton of newborn AIO's considering they MAY of worked for a month and its my last kid.

Re: How many mamas skip newborn diapers?

I've never regretted having newborn diapers and my babies have been 9+lbs. They fit well and don't leak. We hoped for a larger family and with reusing the newborn stuff has more than paid for itself. My stash is pretty simple - mostly prefolds/covers and a few xsFB and KL0's. This stash is about to be used a 4th time and the only thing I'm replacing is the covers. (I bought a cheap brand of covers, Litewraps, that fell apart after 3 babies. Something higher quality like BSWW would probably still be here)

I had an 8.7 baby who grew very quickly, but my GMD organic oranges had to be folded down at first! I used washcloths and origami folded gerber flats for the first little while. All her bulk was in her torso and she just had a short little rise and a teeny butt and legs.

Also, her belly button took a long time to heal (granuloma, I think it's called?) so we couldn't just pull a bigger diaper up and over.

So I am glad I had them even though I had a bigger baby! I trifolded oranges when they got too small to fasten, and did the same with the yellows. It worked great.
