Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

dappi nylon pants are the trimmest cover, that with a flat would be very trim. But it could get messy with newborn poop having to pull the cover off.

Flats and Thirsties XS were best for us.

Some flats have hems that make a big bulk so instead of getting the smaller square by folding in half twice, I learned (too late lol) to make the smaller square by folding all 4 corners toward the center. Hides the bulky hems in the middle and staggers them.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

I'm currently cding a newborn with gmd orange edge workhorses and prefolds. I find the a snappied prefold to be very trim when compared to the workhorse or trifolded into a cover. It's just an adjustment to see a fluffy butt. It also helps to use a sized cover rather than a multisize. I love the thirsties xs covers.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

Cloth is going to be a little more bulky, but on newborns you can't really do anything about it. Newborns are small and cloth is big lol, you have less bulky and more bulky but I don't think you can truly ever get a trim fit on a newborn. They're just too tiny!

Oh and I second that dappi nylon covers are trim, although you may not be able to get a good fit if your little one is too small because the leg openings are big. Newborn workhorses from gmd are pretty trim too. So that under a dappi would probably be a lot smaller than a prefold

If you go into it expecting sposie trim you are going to be disappointed. I think a fluffy butt is cute. We used kl0 & gmd oranges & it was fine...we were in bge and flips by 3 weeks.

my SIL used PUL on pants with all her kids for the NB stage she just added a stich on each leg at the righ setting then removed it when they were big enough. I still found the NB dappi too big for my 5lber but for her average to larger sized newbies it worked well.

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

fuzzibuns for newborns were great for my daughter! I found a website that had a newborn rental www.teenygreenykc.com so I could just use them for the month that I needed newborns before going to the bigger sizes. You pay deposit and weekly fee $12/week to use & whatever you don't use on $200 deposit, you can then use to buy CD's when done with rental. Good luck!

Re: 2 week old, cloth too bulky!

I have tried prefolds, AIO's, AI2's...before taking the plunge I tried Jillian's Drawers "try cloth for $10" deal and then made my decision but everything they sent me seemed bulky. I got used to it in the end. Disposables aren't as cute, aren't as environmentally friendly and I like being able to reuse and save some $$$. My first son is 19 months and they fit great and my newest baby is 3 months and the diapers are still bulky but not like when he was under 8 lbs. As long as the diapers are fitting properly and nothings leaking out try not to get discouraged and remember why you wanted to cd in the first place!
