can you use pfs from birth?

wondering as we are ttc #6 if it is possible to use only pfs in the babydom of kids... there are so many choices out there but I like the pfs but have not used them from birth... they are cheap and easy...

Yep! I have CD'd since day one, and I used primarily prefolds those first few months. Like a pp said, its easiest to just trifold in a wrap style cover in those early weeks.

Re: can you use pfs from birth?

Yes we have used prefolds from day 1 on the last 2. It's dh and I's fav for nb-5-6months old.
I liked preemies for the first few weeks to month (if baby is small).. and then we switched to infant 4X8X4, but I think in the future I would do infant 4X6X4 or newborn GMAR ones, and then switch to 4X8X4 at a few months old.
We snappi'd them and loved them.

Definitely,
its not only cheaper, but it is WAY easier, especially when you are changing the nb bf poo soooo often (at least with my last 2 kiddos I was) I used preemie prefolds (1 and then 2 as they peed more but less often) in preemie/newborn depended on dc's size at birth, but its way easier to do prefolds from birth!
