NB diaper confusion

I've been seeing a lot of NB diapers that are serged and I was wondering if that is better for newborns over T&T. I'd think serging would agitate little thighs, but I've never did cloth on a newborn so I'm not sure. What do you ladies prefer for newborn diapers, Serged or T&T?

Re: NB diaper confusion

We didn't have a problem with serging until DD started walking, then the rubbing on her thighs was horrible.

Re: NB diaper confusion

serging is usually an issue with friction, so it starts when crawling or walking. I would imagine t&t would be so much harder on nb dipes, since they're so tiny.

Re: NB diaper confusion

My take on it is this: Serging creates a tighter "seal" at the legs- it creates less gaps because there isn't the bunching like there is with T&T. You want a good seal when you're dealing with runny poops, so serged would actually be your best bet for newborns.

Now, I prefer T&T legs on chunky thighs... but on newborns, they usually have those little stick legs, and the friction of the movement probably wouldn't irritate the baby's legs like it does on bigger, chunkier babies.

I used T&T on my wee little Zoe and didn't have problems with blow-outs, but in THEORY, I would think the serged would make for better containment.

Re: NB diaper confusion

Thank you ladies, that clears up a lot for me. I imagine T&T newborn diapers would be pretty hard to make.

Re: NB diaper confusion

We don't have any issues with serging but I do prefer t&t for my newborn. I don't see how serging can create a tighter seal. It still bunches like t&t. But maybe I'm missing something. We sure have plenty of gaping issues with serging. I had a hard time finding t&t for newborn but we have some. They are our favs.

Re: NB diaper confusion

Ahhhh!!!! See, I only bought T&T diapers for Zoe! Except for one BubuBebe, which didn't leak or create serging issues.

There are lots of newborn-sized T&T diapers out there- I found a few too many...

Re: NB diaper confusion

fwiw I looked obsessively at least dozens of times a day for about 6 or 7 months straight, lol. But then again I only use natural materials so that limited some of the options. Wish I could have been as lucky as you but I thought people kind of worked you in for customs and stuff???

Re: NB diaper confusion

Yeah, true... I went with some diapers that had fleece or other inners, not just the bamboo I usually do. I was swayed by the cute fabrics. And yes, I was lucky enough to get custom NRSS diapers, and I happened to be on the Scuttlebutts list at the right time- when my turn came up, she said she was just starting to make newborn diapers, and I jumped on it!
