I just bought my first Meg a Roos. I got 2 3 packs. I'm having her add snaps to some of them. But I'm going to be brave and try pinning. I've been cd'ing for 3 years and never tried a pin. Lol. I might need some hand holding. I'm so excited for fluffy mail. Guess I should get knitting some more shorties etc.

She has had a particularly poopy day (we've changed 8 poopy diapers) and i've only used megaroos and we have not had a single problem with blowouts. Of course it's only 1 day but I have been really impressed. They are definitely a much better fit than our regular prefolds and seem to keep things in better. I'm not sure I would have as much luck with them snappied but pinned they are a great tight fit around the legs. I'll post some pics tomorrow if you like. My dd was 8 lbs 7 oz at birth and I'm not sure exactly how big she is now (maybe 9 lbs or so).
Thanks so much for sharing. That's great they fit so soon, and I am expecting this girl to come out about the same size. I would love to see pictures if you have the time.

Also, I have been having a hard time pinning, can you give me any pointers?

Congratulations on your new daughter

Aww, I wish I could get the hang of pins. I can never seem to get them thru the fabric!

If you keep them stuck in a bar of soap they will glide right through the fabric. Getting them through those particular diapers were a bit tougher because the fabric is thicker but the soap really helps them get through.

What a little sweetie! I bought a rainbow of the colorsplash in the infant size...I can't wait to use them! I hope they work well with the snaps...we've had good luck with the midrange in snaps!
