New to cloth

I have fb os elite diapers (used bought off of ebay) and smartipants os (new). I have issues getting either to work without leaking. Dd is 8 lbs 6 oz. Is she just too small?

Re: New to cloth

OS diapers just in general do not work for newborns. Most people have a newborn stash then switch to OS maybe around 10-12 lbs. Even then they will be bulky but will keep in leaks better. I think your LO is just too small yet.

I used disposables when DS was that small. It didn't last long (less than a month) and he was born at 7 lbs 6 oz.

I agree with the other posters. The OS diapers and prefolds I had fit DD much better after she chunked up a bit - around 4wks. I used sposies until then.

Agreed with the others! The leg holes might be too big, causing pee to leak out. Also, make sure you're not using non-CD friendly diaper creams or products on baby's butt. I messed up a couple times with that and it caused some mad repelling.

Thanks for the responses. I am trying them again today because I am almost out of sposies. On diaper #2 in last like 3 hours and so far no leaks. *Crosses fingers*
