Will the ones I bought end up being too small after I wash them? If so I'd rather return them and find something else.
I don't know about the shrinking, but GMD says their newborn prefolds will be 11 x 11 after washing. Maybe you could try washing one pack and see how they turn out. If they shrink too much you could use those as kitchen towels or cloth wipes and return the rest.

This is awesome! I told hubs if we get a newborn unexpectedly we'll be able to do cloth from the start thanks to this. (and a slightly huge stash that already has some newborn prefolds)

Re: Cloth diaper newborn through small for $17

I remember seeing this a few times, but never really paid too much attention since I have big babies, however... I've been feeling nervous this babe may not be as big and we have just gone straight to BGE's in the past so I didn't want to have to buy newborn/small dipes last minute. Thinking I'll buy a couple packs of washcloths and a couple covers and stash that away as my back up plan!
