Looking at some different covers

I am trying to put together my newborn stash for baby due in May. I have been looking at many different options but I just don't know.

Has anyone tried the sassy covers from sassafras diapers on hyena cart?

The other two I am looking at are the bummis super lite and the imagine covers. Anyone have experience with either of these?

I really want something that is trim fitting, easy to use, not too expensive and can line dry.

I have looked at the tirsties covers and might get a couple of those.

I have always liked the quality of Thirsties. I've found with covers that you get what you pay for. Buy the best you can afford within your budget early on.

Re: Looking at some different covers

Bummis Super Lite are really small so would be a good fit for small (5 pounder) newborns. Thirsties xsmall are a great average newborn size and fit a lot longer than bsl. Duos are a good fit and last a long time if you're looking for most bang for your buck It's nice to have several different covers on hand because you never know what will fit your lo best.

Bummis Super Lite were my favorite cover on our 6 pounder. It was one of the few that actually fit below her cord.

Re: Looking at some different covers

I love Bummis covers on my newborb, I used super brites and for my 6 pound son they were a great fit, and lasted awhile.

I have seen the sassafras covers, they seem like a re-sale of the made in china diapers, and one-size, so I'm thinking they would be bulky on a newborn

Re: Looking at some different covers

When we used PUL covers I really liked the Thirsties ones. I usually hate Aplix but I preferred the Aplix over snaps on Thirsties covers.

Re: Looking at some different covers

I had the bummis super lite and hated it. It fit so well but left horrid red marks on my son's thights...DEEP red marks. My husband said to get rid of it, even if I had to throw it away. Thirsties worked fine. Gotta put in a plug for wool though...a loveybums pull on cover would be wonderful over some fitteds.

I think the Sassy covers are the same as Diaper Safari's new covers (just re-branded mass produced covers) I have a few of the ones from Diaper Safari and I don't think they would work for a newborn. My DD is big and has huge thighs and a big tush and she is only on the Medium setting.

Re: Looking at some different covers

I used the imagine NB cover and really liked it. It is sized like the thirsties duo, I think. Even though the website says it fits to 13 lbs, it still fits ds fine at 15 lbs with room to grow in the waist. However, it was a little bulky at first and I'm not sure how it would fit a smaller newborn. I also had thirsties xs covers and liked them too. They probably wouldn't fit a tiny newborn well either, but I found them to be a slightly better fit than the imagine for the first few weeks at least. Roomy but trim.
