Re: Are NB dispers truly worth it?

Tomorrow, if I remember, I'll show the difference between a one-size and a newborn diaper on my 11lb girl. (I really prefer using newborn and adding a doubler if needed. O/S are so bulky on her!)

I bought 10 NB bG AIOs that I used with some prefolds and it was worth the convenience. I used them for 8 weeks but then sold for 8 PPD each. So worth the little money I "lost".

Re: Are NB dispers truly worth it?

At 9lbs, my guy is already starting to fit into his OS. He can still wear the better-fit infant size prefolds so I do think those are worth it (especially since you can use them to stuff pockets, use as burp cloths or whatever after they are outgrown).

I had a 7lb 10oz baby and we used newborn sized diapers for about 2 weeks until the cord stump fell off. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't have gotten newborn pockets or newborn AIOs.

I'm getting flats and Thirsties Duo size 1 covers for my NB. I want to avoid disposables but didn't want to spend a ton of money on cloth diapers that he/she will only wear for a short time.

I thought the alva baby newborn pocket diapers were great fitting on a 9-12lb baby, worked, & cheap. Worth it for the month they fit.

Definitely worth it! Even a bigger baby will need newborn size as most other sizes won't fit below the cord. Go economical with flats and covers. You can resell the covers and use the flats forever.

We had intended to use disposables until DD fit into OS dipes. Then, I learned about rentals. We rented 24 NB simplex from KBTM and it was something around $30/mo. (plus deposit). It was definitely cheaper than disposables and was a great experience. I think her prices may have risen since we did the program, but I still recommend it!
