XS thirsties or Duo 1?

This will be my first nb to use any prefolds, first time to use prefolds ever actually, with the exception of trifolding in the flip. Should I get the xs thirsties or the duo cover ? Why?

I didn't try the sized covers but I love the duo wraps. They fit my 6.10 peanut DD really well, and she still fit them close to a year and 20 lbs. My DS outgrew the size 1s at 2 months. If I had bought a bunch of xs covers for him he would have barely spent any time in them. The only time I would consider the xs was if I had a preemie... I've heard they fit pretty tiny babies.

Posting from my iPhone, hope it's legible

Good to hear the duo wrap fits your 6#er I'm expecting a small baby and want to get a few. Thanks.

Definitely the duo 1! It gets smaller than the xs but also bigger, so it lasts a good bit of time! The xs rubbed my DD's cord but the duo was perfect! Hope that helps!

Get both! I had two xs and two size 1 and that lasted me for 5 months (I had a long skinny bean). The xs were what we ALWAYS reached for when he was tiny (up to about 10lbs probably), then the size 1 duos started working well, too.

We also has a size small thirsties, size small BSWW and BSB, they worked well for his night diapers which was a prefold with a hemp back up.
