preemie or infant pf's for inserts?

Ok I need some MAJOR pocket stuffing advice!! I have about 10 pocket diapers that are the same size that I need inserts/prefolds for. I prefer to go with prefolds cause they are way cheaper than any insert i've seen.

My question is do you think I need infant or preemie prefolds for this? The reason Im considering preemie is because the pockets are wahm newborn diapers and then I have some small swaddlebees that are seriously the same size! The look like new born size, but say they are small . I have a couple small GAD's and and fb's and they are way bigger than my sb's. LMK what you think!!

Thanks

I had XS FB and a preemie pf fit well, BUT it doesn't hold much. You may need two. I think an infant would have been pretty bulky. Once you're in small FB and up then an infant quad folded the short way works good. PF work good as inserts, but I also find them the bulkiest.

HTH.

Infant pfs fit well in a medium FB, so you'd probably want preemie. But keep in mind that they're not in newborn size for very long at all!

Preemie would fit best but you will prolly need 2 at a time. I did that with small FB too. They do grow out of them fast but they make good doublers or cleaning cloths later on.

I would get a dozen of both sizes because you can use both at some point. I LOVED using IPF as inserts.
I would use the preemies now and thn use infants as DC grows. Youll probably have to double up on them. Maybe you might like the infants better though? My suggestion is to try both and see what you like best.

Thanks for all the advice! I am thinking about just doubling up on preemie ones and then dying them and using them for burp cloths since she will grow out of them fast. Thats one reason I dont want to get a bunch of nb/small inserts, cause they are more expensive. Thanks!
