Post contains affiliate links. Over the next few weeks I will be highlighting cloth diapers that will fit preemies or small newborns. Check out my newborn cloth diaper overview for how newborn diapers fit on my 6.5 lb newborn, and check back for more preemie cloth diapers.

Proraps preemie covers are estimated to fit babies who are 2-6 pounds, fitting preemies, or newborns who are a bit too small for newborn covers. They are pretty basic diaper covers, but are also fairly affordable, at $8-10 (depending on where you buy.)

They have a wipeable inner, gussets, and velcro closures. There are no laundry tabs, but I didn’t have trouble keeping the tabs attached to the front of the diaper while washing. The preemie size also has a dip/cutout for the umbilical cord.

Here it is measured folded & stretched (not a lot of stretch since the “give” is largely in the legs):

Here I’ve pictured it with the Imagine preemie prefold

For easy size comparison, I’m using my “diaper model.” Below, he is pictured in a preemie disposable diaper.

To compare, I’ve also pictured him in the Rumparooz Lil Joey, which was the smallest newborn diaper I used on my son, and the first to fit him:

Based on the fit, I have my doubts that the cord scoop would fit under the cord stump of a preemie or tiny newborn:

The preemie Imagine prefolds fit perfectly trifolded.

    my proraps have made it through 2 babies, but have a couple of small snags/holes in them. I’m sure they’ll hold up through 2 or 3 more babies if the mom(s) involved don’t mind the aesthetic of snags.
