IMO if you plan on having a baby under 8 lbs or so go with preemie pfs and prowraps covers. you can trifold the pfs into the covers. also may want to try some newborn or preemie fitteds like VB side snappers. I made my own and they are really teeny tiny -perfect for tiny legged babies

Maybe I'm an idiot or all thumbs, but i couldn't get prefolds to work right for our boy when he was tiny (6#4oz his first day in cloth).

We were SAVED by Kissaluvs 0s. They fit snug as a bug around those tiny chicken legs and his tiny waist and even held up for his SHORT rise. We paired them with Bummis Super Whisper Wraps, but admittedly didn't try too many covers (BSWW and Imse Vimse Bumpy Day)

I second the KL0s, but they don't last for long.

I think for most babies that's true, but ds wore his until he was 12.5wk old!! He's a skinny one. They still fit him around, but the rise is now too short. But I could use them in a pinch yet if I had to.

PattyNaps Basics. They are super cheap and come in a pack of 3. They fit like right after birth, literally.lol
they hold in the poops really well too. I have seen them fit up to aobut 3 months.
