Fluffy stuff!

As in cloth diapers...

First, despite being in the 50th percentile, little girl is tiny. Half of her newborn onesies are too big on her!

Here's her next to a size small cover. Ignore the angry face, lol

So I bought some nb fluff. Here she is with a fitted with a cover.

GMD orange edge prefolds. This isn't on great, but these fit her well.

And just for reference, here's a fitted that fits her right now. She doesn't have much room in it, but it fits.

I also got her some Xs BG AIOs for going out, but I don't have any pics.

She is really cute!! love her face in the second picture!
Yeah, Judah's legs are too skinny for most of even the smaller size small dipes. He wears prefolds 90% of the time. I have the green edged ones and some Indian unbleached ones as well that both fit really well but I do fold down the top.
The Thirsties Duo wraps are awesome. Yeah, the small Thristies are huge on Judah but we have a size 1 wrap that I use. I have some Bummis NB covers as well.
We have one pocket dipe that fits him and two fitteds so when we're out I put one of those in the bag.

Love the dipes! Yes my newborn dipes are still way too big on my lil dude. And all the reviews I read said they would only fit for a couple of weeks. People must have some big babies because there is no way.

We are mostly using lil joeys, newborn grovias, and orange edge with covers. The newborn covers are really big though and I hate that they hit right at his umbilical cord.

I didn't start using cloth until after her cord stump came off.

I bought the Thirsties x-small covers and they seem so big. I also have some thx aio's that are newborn size with a snap down for the cord that look tiny so hopefully they will fit well. I have resorted to sewing my own fitted diapers so that they are small enough, but even they don't seem so small. I guess I will just have to wait and see what fits her when she gets here. Here is a pic of one of the fitteds I sewed on my DS's doll. LOL

I love my Thirsties x-sm fitteds and covers. DD wore them for several months I think. She was a slow grower!

Christine, that's so cute! So I guess it's like a contour fitted with no snaps/velcro?

thanks! Yes, I just took a pocket diaper pattern and sewed in a soaker. I am only using materials I have on hand so I did not use velcro. I am mostly using receiving blankets leftover from DS (we had a ton from being in and out of the hospital so much) and I had some flannel left over from making cloth wipes. And for some reason I had the right sized elastic laying around too. I think I have enough materials to make about 20 or so, but I only have 4 done, lol. That said I have only been off bed rest for a week Wink I am playing with different soakers. Some of them are just 6-8 layers of receiving blankets, some are microfiber ones I cut up from my stash. I am not the best seamstress but they will work Smile I left the pocket open on most of them so I can add if I need to. We will see how they work when she gets here.

So it's a pocket fitted? I have some leftover high quality bamboo and I've thought about making some fitteds with it.

I so wish I were that crafty! I have a sewing machine but the elastic part overwhelms me! I have a bunch of extra receiving blankets too though. I was actually thinking of sewing a middle strip on some of my plain burp cloths (the Gerber prefold ones) just to make them look fancy and maybe sell them.
I did just now put some snaps on a velcro diaper that wasn't velcro-ing anymore. But that's about the extent of my diaper-making ability.

Yes, I just left the back edge open like a pocket in case she is a heavy wetter or the way the pattern is it is pretty long/high rise so to fit a newborn it will need to be folded over. So they should fit a long while and leaving them as pockets allows for them to be used longer too. I guess it is more like an AI2, but it needs a cover. Did I just create a new diaper line? Should I get a patent??? Ha ha j/k, I am sure it has been done.
