Favorite- Newborn Blueberry Simplex AIO
This diaper gets you the most mileage for an newborn. It begins fitting well around 7lbs and lasts until at least 15 lbs. My son and daughter were both heavy wetters and this diaper was the only diaper that would last more than an hour without adding loads of extra inserts. This diaper does have the possibility for stuffing extra inserts-- I used hemp inserts when my newborn started sleeping 3-4 hour stretches at night. Love, love, love this diaper.

Newborn Grovia AIO- not my favorite diaper. Fits great on tiny newborns, but absorbency is lacking and it's very quickly outgrown. It does snap down small enough before the umbilical cord falls off.

Did you use the ruffled version or the newest with the turned and top stitched design?

I have a couple of faves. One is not talked about much, but for my little bitty, but older baby who peed like an older...the bumkins size 0 fitteds were fantastic. Tiny, soft, and absorbent. She is 4 months old, and just about 10 and a half pounds. Pees like a typical 4 month old, and we are loving the Imagine bamboo newborn AIO's. We have the velcro, and you'd probably need the snap to use them immediately from birth, unless you have a big baby. But they fit great even now and are plenty absorbent for her.

We didn't like THX/Little Joey's. Cute and all but not absorbent enough and not easy to clean.

For the smaller newborn Ashar/ Diaperevolution velour fitted and Nana's Bottoms AIO. When they are a bit bigger - Bottombumpers size1/ small. I liked the Simplex, but it took a long time until it started fitting my thin legged babies.

I just ordered the Diaperevolution size small to try on my DS.

I loved GMD NB prefolds, with thirsties xs covers. But the covers were a little big on my newborn and I didn't love the aplix. This time I'm going with duos size one in snaps, which I think will be better.

I love so many CDs... but for newborns my fave is the GMD prefolds with a Thirsties or Bummis cover.

Faves:
- GMD Prefolds with Bummis Super Brite cover. Only thing that fit my LO at 5#4oz.
- Nana's Bottoms have a nice trim fit, great for daytime.
- Smart Bottoms Born Smarts for an AIO. Began to fit around 7#, 6weeks old, on her skinny legs with good absorbency.

Okay for now - Blueberry Simplex NB still are big around her legs. She's now 8w and 7#12oz we wear them as a last resort but I think they'll fit well when she's bigger and will last a long time.

Least favorite
- Lil Joeys she outwet very early even with frequent changes. However they did have a good fit.
FOR SMALL NEWBORN - I haven't been able to get a good fit still with Thirsties duo sz 1. She's just too skinny still.
- Imagine NB covers were giant.

Which gmd prefolds did you use under the super brights?

(Those are by backup plan of baby comes out to small for the duos 1)
