So what's so great about prefolds? Well, these are the type of diapers most people think of when they hear cloth diapers. But even then, they've come a long way. And no more pins, the Snappis have little plastic teeth on the three ends that "catch" the cloth on the prefolds to hold it all together. I personally haven't used prefolds (learning all the folds on a toddler trying to run away just never happened), but I'm really looking forward to trying them with Brooke. Prefolds do have to be used with a cover though.
These are the other newborn fitteds we have. The top left is a Happy Heineys fitted, size newborn. The top middle is a WAHM (work at home mom) made fitted I got off Etsy. The diaper all the way to the right is a Very Baby, size newborn. The bottom left is an Under The Nile fitted, size 1. And the bottom center is another WAHM made fitted, size nb.
Fitteds are nice because they just snap right on like a disposable diaper. But they do have to be used with covers. Sometimes this can make for quite a fluffy bottom!
These two are GreenSprouts fitteds, both in size medium/long. I had actually bought these for Luke and they ended up being too small. I've tried selling them, but not gotten any good offers, so I figured I'd keep them for Brooke. They are very trim, but the downside to it is that they don't last real long. I usually pair them with a FooFoo Hemp Liner from Etsy seller ArtsyFartsyFooFoo.
Also, not pictures, I have two one size Goodmamas fitted diapers. These are expensive, but they work really great and of all the fitted, are my favorite. So why no pictures? Yes, even though they hav pink on them, my son uses them now! They had a sale, 3 for $70 a while back and I only saw one boy print I liked, so I figured I'd get one boy print for him and two girl ones for Brooke. Well, turns out I loved the diapers so much that even Todd was okay with lettering Luke wear them, as long as they were worn with a manly cover! Haha! I doubt they'll fit Brooke anytime soon though, even though the size, one size, replies they will. I'm guessing around 4-5 months. We'll see....
These are the rest of our newborn covers. The top three and bottom two are what we plan on using first. They have a little dip in the front so that it doesn't irritate the cord. They are called Proraps. The light blue cover in the middle to the left is a Swaddlebees cover. Second with green dots is a Bummis Super Whisper Wrap. The third is a Bummis Super Brite. And the one all the way to the right is a Thirsties cover in XS.
These are the covers I have for when Brooke gets a little bigger. The first two on the top are Bummis Super Brites, size small. The top row, all the way to the right, as well as the green one below it are WHAM made, from Etsy Seller OliveJanes, both size small. The middle left is Imse Vimse, size small. The bottom two are both mediums. The one on the left is a Dappi cover I got for free and the one on the right is a Snap Ez fleece cover I got for free.
These are all the next step up. I have four size small Thirsties All-In-Ones which are on the left. Then on the right, I have 7 size small BumGenious 3.0s.
Last is the two size medium Blueberries All-In-Ones. Those are the two pretty printed ones. The other two pink ones are one size Bum Genious All-In-Ones. I'm trying to keep myself from buying anymore in size medium because I figure by then, Brooke will probably be about 5 or 6 months old and we can just use the stash we had for Luke which is pretty gender neutral. The key to this equation though......will Luke be potty trained by then? My hope is yes, reality, I'm not really sure. He's doing well now, but we'll see how he does once he has a baby sister taking all his attention away from him.
