NB prefolds or preemie?

I have NB prefolds, as small as they look they still seem big. Do they really fit a NB well, or should I look into getting some preemie prefolds? My last LO was 6.11 at birth. If anyone knows of any thread that could help that would also be great!

Re: NB prefolds or preemie?

I found NB (GMD) prefolds super bulky on my 5.7lber even preemie prefolds I had to fold down a great deal.

I'd get preemie. They are cheap enough to only use for 2-3 weeks. Newborn prefolds were pretty bulky on my 8.3lber.

The infant ones were bulky on my 8.5 lber for the first couple weeks. Besides preemie prefolds make great doublers and wipes later

I prefer to use preemie at first (I have small babies) and then move up to the oranges.

Re: NB prefolds or preemie?

this makes me happy. I want to get newborns for the next one but keep wondering if we should just deal with the infants we already have. If you guys are getting premees than I should def get newborns LOL

Thanks I will grab a couple dozen to use until the infants fit. I was going to just get them from GMD since I need to order flats, but does anyone like another brand?
