For those that have cd a nb

Okay...I know that there are several of us that have started our NB stashes already I was just curious from those that have used cloth on newborns, what was the go to diapers in the beginning? I plan on mostly using prefolds with covers, but I have a few fitteds as well and am making some AI2s for grandparents and daddy diaper changes. So, what do I "need" for my stash?

Re: For those that have cd a nb

I was lucky enough to have my mom make me about 30 newborn fitteds. They were amazing and Im pretty sure they will work this time around too. If I didn't have fitteds and to supplement the fitteds I would use prefolds and covers. Not sure of what covers. Last time I used bummis super whisper wraps in newborn and green earth newborn.

I had Lil Joeys, XS Bumgenius, and orange-edge prefolds w/ nb proraps. The lil joeys were my go -to before the cord fell off.

I have been eyeing the lil joeys. They are so cute! I may have to start watching for a few!

Re: For those that have cd a nb

DD was a chunk born at 8lb 4 oz. We used prefolds and they lasted a month and stretched them to 6 (there were blow outs!). So glad we didn't spend oodles on fitteds. Started EC'ing at 6 weeks since I could tell when DD needed to poo and sometimes pee and I was waiting for my OS fitteds to come in the mail.

So.... long story short... prefolds!! I've already dyed some

Re: For those that have cd a nb

I used pockets and pfs from day one (a few sposies at the very beginning too). My issue with the pfs and covers was they rubbed the cord area but pretty much every CD option did.

This time I think I will splurge on some lil joeys and newborn fitteds (I have a friend who makes them). I will get pfs and covers too. I love pfs and wool too. Since it will still be kinda cold here when the babe is born I am going to get a few super cute pair of longies (probably make my own from old sweaters ).

I am so excited!!!! DH thinks I am crazy about the diapers but he doesn't complain when he doesn't have to run out form sposies.

We used Lil Joeys and Nana's Bottoms. I also had 6 XS Bum Genius AIO's but they didn't fit my tiny little thing until a lot later.

I think we'll stick with those plus I would like to get some Gro Via's this time around too

We did not cloth diaper my first until he was 6 months old. For our second son we were borrowed a friends stash of GM newborns. They worked well. No blowouts but we did have to sun those things almost every week to keep the satins away. My friend who lent us her GM stash is due a month before me so I doubt she will be lending me anything this go around.

Sounds like I'm on the right track for diapers! Thanks for all the responses. Keep them coming. Any recomendations on what didn't work either would be great.
