Re: Anyone cloth diapered twins?

I would get some preemie prefolds and premie covers since newborn tend to be small. I would also get some preemie nana bottoms since those are cheap enough.

I had a 5lbs baby and the xs bg did not fit and gap at the legs until 7lbs and the newborn prefolds were too bulky.

Where did you get the xs elbees???

Congrats and Good Luck

Thanks for the suggestions ladies. Premie diapers here I come. I never in a million years thought I'd be buying those!

Re: Anyone cloth diapered twins?

I used cloth on my twins. They were 6lbs 1oz and 5lbs 8 oz. you will be lucky if 10 dipes from your current stash will work on a nb approximately the sizes my twins were.

Your nb mutts will probably offer the best fit out of what you currently have available. You will have to fold down the fronts of your nb workhorses which will make them oddly bulky - but I think you can get them to work if you have to.
These from your stash will not fit a typical nb twin - xs elbee, infant pfs, nb BG, NB alva, none of your covers will fit, & probably not your nb sticky peas.

Your Lil joeys & xs fuzzi buns may or may not work??? The Xs Fuzzi Buns fits best on 7-8 pounders with a little chunk - the legs holes will likely gape a bit on a nb twin. And a lot of people have problems with lil joeys leaking & fitting odd, they definately have a bulky bubble look.

I definately suggest NB disposables which you will also be folding down the fronts of for some time. If you have pf experience preemie Megaroos would be nice, otherwise I DO NOT recommend pfs for twin NBs. When it comes to covers bummis super lites work well for most 6 pounders over preemie sized diapers. NB and preemie nanas bottoms aios are great for smaller babies, I HIGHLY recommend them!

I have found that most weight ranges provided for main stream cloth diapers (like BG, fuzzi bunz...)exaggerate by about 1.5 - 2 lbs, so if a nb diaper suggests it will fit from 6-12 lbs it probably won't really fit most babies until they are closer to 8lbs.

I don't care if I can't use mine for the first couple months - eventually they will fit. They are not as small & trim as my nb super lites.

34 os pockets (charlie banana, diaper safari and bg 4.0)
6 grovia ai2 but i use them as aio
18 prefolds
4 sbish snapless
2 thirsties covers
4 wool soakers
If we ever have extra money I would love to add some more fitteds
