Kim Rosas from Dirty Diaper Laundry did an excellent review of many newborn diapers. She even included a chart comparing the fit, absorbency, and bang for the buck. Watch her video review here, and then check out the chart below it. This is a great resource if you will be cloth diapering a newborn!
I was excited when Kim announced that she would be reviewing newborn diapers, and now I can’t wait to get started purchasing diapers for my baby due in June (though I know I have plenty of time!).
I mainly used newborn prefolds and diaper covers when Elaine was born, but I didn’t begin using cloth until her cord fell off. I am considering taking cloth with me to the hospital this time, so I am looking at other options. I bought my first newborn diaper from a WAHM, and it is the tiniest, cutest, most adorable diaper! It fits Elaine’s little baby doll which she got for Christmas!
I do plan to try the Lil Joey diapers. Elaine was a smaller baby at birth, and very skinny. If this baby follows in her steps, we will get a bit of use out of them. I am hesitant to buy a lot of them simply because it is an AIO diaper and I don’t have a dryer. I am nervous that they will take forever to line dry!
I also want to use some XS FuzziBunz diapers. FuzziBunz are my favorite diaper, with Rumparooz a close second. I used the smalls with Elaine, but I know she would have worn the XS diapers for several months. We’re going to give them a try with baby #2!
Did you cloth diaper your newborn? What was your favorite diaper? Would you invest in newborn diapers, or just go with prefolds until one size diapers fit better (usually starting around 8 pounds)? Leave a comment and share your wisdom!
