Thanks! Do they go low enough to be below the umbilical cord stump?

Re: Best Newborn Diaper?

My favorite right now for my newbie is a flannel receiving blanket (as a flat) and a newborn rumparooz cover or thirsties size 1 cover. At night, I add an Alva bamboo insert.

It's just so sweet and absorbent. I never thought I'd like flats so much.
Runner up would just be an infant prefold with a preemie doubler or bamboo insert.

I liked infant prefolds and thirsties duo covers. A bit bulky but no leaks which was key to me. I was not a fan of basically all the aio's we had. I did like the nb nana's bottoms more then all the others but they were still sketchy for pee leaks. My babies nurse ALL the time so pee a ton. I did use premie prefolds for the first week but I always had to add a small booster so I decided my Bummis organic infant prefolds were a safer bet.

I'm thinking I'll get 24 flats and 6 Thirties Duo (size 1) covers. Will that be enough?

You may want some extra flats. Some newborns can go through up to 12 changes a day, so that'd be a day and a half till next wash time. I'd be safe and get 3 dozen. Gives you extra wash time, and a little buffer period (to get more) and use some as doublers once baby gets bigger and needs more absorbency.

Re: Best Newborn Diaper?

I heard Sweet Pea makes a good cover (my cousin was a tester last year).
If I'm not mistaken, they now have a newborn aio...

Yes, I found that they did. I unfortunatly don't have picture of the duo 1's but I have an XS picture, and the Duo 1's go smaller than the XS's


If you want super duper tiny, for sure fits under the cord, the Bummis NB's are the way to go

With my first I used prefolds and covers my fav covers were the nb rumparooz covers they lasted 3-4 months and are such great quality they still looked new my thirsties covers worked well too but after 3 months of use they looked dingy and are not as nice quality as the rumparooz I only purchased snaps so can't comment on hook and look durability

I actually really like flats better than prefolds they wash and clean so much better faster and easier

I tried bummis wraps and pro wraps I liked the pro wraps but they are so plan and ugly lol but work GREAT and fit amazing bummis was ok they were stiff not as much stretch nothing bad about them just didn't appeal to me
