    First, I'd normally say more but I'm replying from my phone.

    I don't know anything about that brand at all.

    Do know that most "one size" diapers don't fit newborns. They usually don't fit till 10-12 pounds.

    However, I do love other one size pocket diaper brands. I really like being able to change the absorbency out which has been super helpful with my now super soaker toddler.

    I'll try to be more informative later. Or someone else will chime in.

    I was planning on getting some for newborns that I could use until baby fits into these. They say they are good for 6.5-28lbs

    For $85, they're worth a shot IMO but don't be surprised if they're crappy quality. If they say they fit a 6.5 lber, they probably fit more like an 8-9 lber. I personally recommend settling on a newborn solution and then having a few other kinds to try out before buying an entire stash.

    What are you looking for in a cloth diaper? Ease of use? Low cost? Long-lasting? Extreme cuteness? There's a cloth diaper solution out there for all needs!

    I like ease of use and saving money is always nice!! I will probably use disposables until the babies cord falls off and then possibly until these ones fit. If these ones dont work out all that well I plan to try some other types when we get our tax returns. THis is just too good of a deal to pass up. Ive been looking at some diff types of inserts as well. I am getting really excited about doing this!!

    Same birth board and both newbies to cloth diapering. I am also going to be trying it for the first time with this baby. I'm looking for long lasting and of course saving money. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on diapers in a year. I'm making my own cloth diapers. I went to Joann's fabrics and got everything I needed. So far for start up cost it cost me $50 and it will make between 6-8 OS diapers. I had to get the little hand held snap machine which was like $20. So next time it will probably only cost me $20-$25 to make another 6-8. I'm going to try and make at least 20-30 so I have plenty of back ups.
