Re: Rec your newborn covers

For smaller newbies like my dd (6lb 15oz) I loved the bummis super brite. For bigger babies like ds2 (9lbs 6oz) I liked the thirsties duos size 1 and nanas bottoms small.

Re: Rec your newborn covers

I hated Thirsties---just couldn't get them to work for us. Looooved Softbums Echos.

Re: Rec your newborn covers

We had 24 GMD NB prefolds and 10 covers, and we washed every other day. We trifolded covers, and my DD was a poop *machine*! Had I known, I would have bought more AIO diapers before she was born.

LOVED Imse Vimse Organic Preemie and Bummis Original (hubby's fave too).
Really liked Bummis Super Brite NB and Super Lite Small too! So hard to pick a fave. LOL. Those all were my top four.

Did not like:
Bummis Super Whisper (always had EBF leaks)
Thirsties Duo Wrap (also had leaks... I think because she was so skinny? Didn't think this cover did well with trifolding. I think it would be great for fitteds though!)
Bummis Super Snap (couldn't get a good fit)
LiteWrap/ProWrap (just didn't fit her well)

My DD didn't like prefolds at all. I didn't even realize that she needed stay-dry till she was 4 months old. Poor baby. She didn't have a rash, but she ALWAYS cried in the carseat and stroller until we put her in stay dry diapers. I will with the next one... from the beginning. *sigh*

I do want to try Rumparooz covers though! Hoping to try them over some fitteds.
