Currently have an 8-day-old, and I prefer the absorbency of prefolds to any of our pockets or AIOs. Only place I prefer the AIOs is the diaper bag. It's nice not to have to mess with multiple pieces when out, though admittedly , the places we've been so far were post-natal check ups.

If you have someone already in diapers I found it much easier for everyone to only have one system for both. That way no one gets confused if they are helping in the early weeks. I have all aios so that is what we used. If we used flats I would imagine I would use those for the newborn as well.

I appreciate all the input ladies! I decided to stick with my flats, since it's all I use on my 20 month old. No need to over complicate my stash
