I would love to know how long the nb simplex lasts/how much she weighs when she outgrows it! I have a number of those, & I'm hoping they will be a good bridge from newborn to small.

Thank you mama for all the pics!!!! She is adorable!
Any chance you could try a pad folded flat into a grovia oS cover & see how the fit is? And absorbency?
Thanks again

Re: Newborn pics



She's gorgeous!! Congratulations, Mama!

I love the variety and colour of your stash. Try folding over the rise forwards on the bg xs, and then fastening the velcro on an angle pointed more downwards. I've seen this done, and I think it provides a better fit while the cord is still attached.

I am hoping to be able to update when all the diapers stop fitting. Hopefully! I hear they last a long time though.

I prefer the prefolds (ATM), only because they are faster (when tri-folding). I am worn out with a NB and 2 yr old. Until I adjust, I'm just going for what is easy! I do like my flats though.
