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

I have been using proraps they are working great at holding everything in
The doubled prefold work great but i put a wool soaker over it and the prefold was sticking out a little in the back and her jammies were all wet
The pockets are solid ( SB's )and I have been stuffing dd with preemie prefold and Ethans (FB,SB, snap-ez) with a Cb Mf insert
maybe I will try adding Jb hemp insert as well and see what happens
thanks again mamas for you input and support

DS was 5 pounds 13 ounces when he came home. The infant PF's were bulky on him, but the preemies wouldn't hold much. The best thing for us was flats folded in the origami. I also folded the back down about an inch and jelly rolled the sides. They are cheap, too. And very trim.

Re: cding newborn

When Dakota was a newborn (weve cloth diapered since birth), I didnt have any fancy dipies. All I used was prefolds and covers. Believe it or not, I think thats the best choice for a newborn. I just bought 3 dozen prefolds, and a few covers and kept rotating them. Thats what worked for us.
I didnt even know about all these fancy dipies until "sweet fantasy fox" brought me to this board. Thank god for her, or Id still be using prefolds and covers..lol
