Question about the orange edge GMD prefolds

She wants to buy the Newborn Mini Kit from here http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/packages.htm

She wants to know how long will those prefolds last and the newborn covers? My son is almost 4 so I do not remember lol

Re: Question about the orange edge GMD prefolds

Depends on the size of the baby...my newborn (born at 10 lbs) fit right into the yellows at birth so I skipped the oranges all together. If baby is in the 6,7, or 8 pound range, the oranges may be the better choice and will last a couple months.

Re: Question about the orange edge GMD prefolds

We were in the same boat... My son was 9 lbs 7 oz and wore XS (newborn) dipes for about 3 or 4 weeks!

I do remember going through a TON of covers in the beginning, since he pooped with almost every diaper change. And EBF poo got everywhere. I needed 8 covers to be able to launder every other day. Once he got regulated and only pooped once a day (or less) it was much easier.

Thank you ladies. She will buy that package and a dozen yellow just in case.

Re: Question about the orange edge GMD prefolds

My ds was born at a little over six and a half pounds. He was able to wear the orange pf's for a little over three months. And we can still trifold them and use them, but for the most part I prefer to snappi. We've moved up to the yellow edge from GMD and the green edge diaper rites.

Re: Question about the orange edge GMD prefolds

I think the orange edge GMD's are a must! My baby was 8lbs 5oz (long and thin) and he wore the orange diapers for at least 6 weeks...he did not really grow out of them until about 14lbs...not great for overnight when he was bigger but okay for naps. Anything bigger will swallow a newborn.
