My Dream Newborn Cloth Diaper & Choosing My Stash + Giveaway (2/18)

Newborn #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers

I didn’t start cloth diapering until my second child was 4 months old, so my third child was my first experience with newborn cloth diapers.

I’d done lots of research, and had started collecting diapers here & there before my son was even conceived, and I so often heard moms say that their favorite diaper for a newbie was a prefold & cover. I assumed the reason was mostly the cost factor. A full stash of “fancy” (lol) newborn cloth can easily cost more than using disposables for that time period. However, I knew that two friends would be able to use them when I was finished with them, and after that I could save them for another baby, donate them, or even re-sell them (newborn diapers tend to hold more of their value than other diapers.) My second child was so sensitive to disposables, I was afraid to try them on baby #3. Plus, I needed very little for baby #3, so I figured I could justify a little splurge to make newborn diapering easier.

The problem is that each baby is so different in weight, size and wetting habits, it’s hard to tell which diaper will work for your baby as a newborn until s/he is here. Then, as soon as you figure it out, something changes and/or s/he grows out of newborn cloth!

My son was born at under 7 pounds, and was around 6.5 pounds at his lowest. The very first diaper we put on him was a Rumparooz Lil Joey, because he was just so, so tiny. Had you asked me the first day of his life, I would have said those were my favorite diaper because they just fit him so well , but within a day or two, he was soaking right through them!

My new favorite was the GroVia newborn AIO (though I wish they’d had the stay dry version when I bought mine!) They didn’t quite fit under his umbilical cord stump as easily as the Lil Joey, but they were more absorbent. I had high hopes for the Fuzzibunz XS pockets, but my son’s legs were just too skinny. If they had a snap overlap/leg snap they probably would have worked better.

My absolute favorite diaper in the first week or two was the Bumgenius newborn/XS AIO because they fit his teeny legs, and the hook & loop closures made them so easy to use. The problem was that they covered his cord stump, and it wasn’t staying dry. At the time, there was a great sale on the diapers, so I ordered a bunch more since I was struggling to keep up with all the diaper laundry. By the time they got here, my son was soaking through those as well!

He was still far from fitting in most one-size diapers, but he was soaking newborn sizes. Newborn size fitted diapers were better, but the extra step of covering them was enough to make me choose them last! My salvation were dual-sized diapers like the Thirsties Duo Diaper Size 1, Applecheeks Size 1, Tots Bots Tini Fit, Happy Heinys Mini One-Size and Blueberry Mini One Size (with hemp inserts.) They were teeny tiny, but had far more absorbency than a newborn diaper.

Unfortunately, by the time I figured this out, it didn’t make sense for me to buy more. If I had another baby, s/he could be bigger, smaller or not as heavy a wetter, and different diapers might work. If I had another baby today, I’d probably snag some tiny hemp doublers to try to make the diapers I have work well for a heavy wetter, perhaps cutting a “pocket” in the XS Bumgenius so I could add absorbency & keep the stay dry effect.

If I could get a “do over,” I’d have more Thirsties Duo Diapers and Applecheeks in my stash, as well as Thirsties Size 1 Duo Wraps, Swaddlebees Capri Size 1 Covers (hook & loop closures!) and prefolds to trifold.

My dream diaper would be a Bumgenius mini one-size…a diaper the size of the XS AIO, but with an umbilical snap down and/or more than one rise setting, with a pocket, hemp insert and hook & loop closures. I’d buy a whole stash of those puppies!

If you’re interested, I threw together a post compiling my opinions of newborn cloth diapers I’d tried after using them for a month. Not the best post since it was written in my sleep deprived stupor and photos were just quick snapshots, but each blurb about the diaper has a photo of my son in it, as well as a link to my photo review with measurements etc.

Have you cloth diapered a newborn? What was your favorite diaper and did your favorite change over time? What would your dream newbie stash look like?

I have not personally tried out my newborn stash, but my neighbor did use it for her little boy for the first 3 weeks. I was looking at the one bg xs I have and wondered if you could add your own snap down for the umbilical cord. If/when I have another little one, I might have to try to do that so they can be used earlier.

We’ve been prefolds and covers fans since the start. Proraps worked great for our 6.5 lb newborn, and that’s what we’re planning to use most for #2 this summer, as well. I have accumulated some XS/nb AIOs as well as a nice stash of AppleCheeks, though, so they will all be in the rotation as well!

I’ve given much of my stash to my sister when she had her baby. Her baby was a surprise when her and her husband were not financially ready, so I gave her some of my gender neutral dipes and I also had fun buying her some new girly prints :) When my cloth diapering journey ends, I would love to donate my stash to a less fortunate family to help them diaper their babies.

for me, it would be in making a little newborn/mama gift basket. Equipped with cloth diapers, mama lotion or that earth mama bottom spray and maybe even some postpartum pads. Something sweet and salty to eat, and a meal to help feed her family–so she’ll be at ease and the family can just sit down and enjoy their new addition!

Tell us how you would honor, bless, or help a mom-to-be. Leave us a comment below.

A mom to be deserves to enjoy her new little one. I would cook her hardy meals, make her coffee or tea, run errands for her, keep her important paperwork in order, keep the laundry done, stay out of the way as much as possible, lend an ear when she desires it, not question her decisions (unless they are dangerous of course), hold the baby only when she asks me to, take orders from her without batting an eyelash, give her opportunities to shower, not push her to do anything she doesn’t feel ready to do, keep plenty of fresh fruit and veggies stocked for snacking, not take any snappy retorts personally, and treat her with the gentle care that she deserves.

We used disposables the first month but when my daughter was about 4 weeks old I stared using Best Bottom diapers. She was still tiny at a month so I think they would have fit a 6 or 7 pound newborn just fine. No leaks or problems and they are still my favorite diaper.

I would help a new mom by giving her a little time off. My sister will be a new mommy any day now and I know she would appreciate a couple hours of sleep!

I’d help a mom-to-be by encouraging her to share absolutely everything she’s feeling about becoming a mother, good and bad, listening to her, celebrating her and her baby and not telling her any birth, baby, or parenting-related horror stories.

I would help a new mom by keeping the little one happy while she took a nap and by encouraging her to share her thoughts and feelings-the good and the bad.

I gave a friend a lot of my son’s outgrown, baby clothes, and boyish diaper covers, since I have a girl this time. For another friend, I had a small shower for her second baby. It was fun! Sometimes I like to buy moms things that you can’t find around where I live, and have to be ordered online, or just things that others aren’t so likely to get!

My immediate favorites were much different than yours! I didn’t like our Grovia NB at all. I really wanted to, so I was super bummed about it, but they leaked on my guy all the time. We loved the fit of the Lil Joey’s but we couldn’t wear them for long at a time without leaking. I loved our Fuzzibunz XS, and wish we would have had it immediately. I really want some more for the next baby. Most of my fav’s were WAHM diapers, but with our Fuzzibunz, I was even able to add a doubler in there.

My favorite newborn diaper was the Imagine nb AIO. I only had 2 & wish I’d had at least 6! I didn’t have it for the nb stage, but the Tots Bots Bamboozle Stretch size 1 (says it fits 5-18 lbs – I started using it around 12 lbs, I think) is really great & easy to get snug around the legs. I expect I would have loved it in the nb stage especially.

Thanks for posting this! We’re not at the point where we’re trying to conceive yet because of life happening, but I’m doing some heavy research to find the best diapers for when we do start trying. I’ve been looking into the sized diapers based on my size and my hubby’s sizes at birth. I’m worried that newborn diapers may be too small from the start if we have a 9lber, like we both were. However, I also realize that I’m not going to feel like folding and snappiing (that’s an awkward word) prefolds while dealing with the pressures of new parenthood. However, a prefold slapped into a cover and snapped (yes, snapped. I can’t stand the sound of velcro, it makes my skin crawl.) on baby could work really well, and it looks like that’s sort of what you found as well.

Of course, I’ve also been working on my own diaper pattern, so I may just try my hand at making the dream diaper of which you spoke.
