Cloth Diapering at Six Weeks

My newborn cloth diapering experiments continue…can you tell how much I’m loving this?  At 6 weeks and roughly 11 ½ lbs he is still comfortably in the Happy Heinys.  The Bum Genius AIO Size XS and FuzziBunz XS Pockets are just starting to get a little snug, but still work very well.  I have added a couple of new diapers to my routine: Applecheeks Size 1, Thirsties Cover Size XS, Blueberry Mini Deluxe and Tots Bots Tiny Fit.  He has completely grown out of the Rumparooz Lil Joeys and the premie prefolds so they have been retired. Of this new group of diapers the Tots Bots Tiny Fit is my favorite.  It is a great fit with room to grow, the inside is super soft against him and the fact that you don’t have to unstuff them prior to washing is a great bonus.  We haven’t had any leaking though it is a very trim diaper.  I give a definite thumbs-up on this diaper.  It has prompted me to take a look at the Tots Bots Easy Fit for down the road when he’s wearing one size diapers. The Blueberry Mini Deluxe is an incredible diaper.  It is very similar to the Happy Heiny in that it is a mini one-size.  It has snaps to adjust the rise like a one-size, but it is just smaller (hence the name mini).  …

Newborn Cloth Diapering at Four Weeks

My little boy is now a month old and life is starting to almost seem normal…well, a new kind of normal…okay maybe the word normal is stretching it!  I have been so excited to explore this world of newborn cloth diapering and I can finally start branching out now that his umbilical stump has finally fallen off and he has started to pack on some pounds.   Four Weeks: The little man is now 10 lbs 8 ounces and 22 inches.  Because they are just so adorable and seem so comfy-cozy I am still putting him in the Rumparooz Lil Joeys, being careful to change these more frequently to prevent leaks.  I have unsnapped the umbilical snap-down and the fit is still very good, but the leaks are hit or miss.  After much anticipation I have been able to pull out my BumGenius All-in-One X-Smalls, my Fuzzi Bunz X-Smalls (snap and aplix) and my Happy Heinys Mini One-Size Pockets.  I absolutely love the BG AIO and the Fuzzi Bunz pockets.  The BG’s and FB fit well, are very trim and haven’t leaked at all.  I definitely prefer the aplix with a newborn because I feel like I can get a really custom fit, although the snaps on the FB have worked nicely as well.  My only complaint would be the aplix on the FB (a fairly new feature for FB).  …

Newborn Diapering

I am looking for some been-there-done-that advice. I am pregnant with my third baby, but only my second to be in cloth diapers. I started my daughter in cloth at about 4 months and feel as if I have tried just about everything under the sun when it comes to cloth diapers in the 16 months that she’s been in them. However, I’m anxious to get this new little one into cloth as soon as possible and the newborn cloth diaper thing is brand new to me. Therefore, I’m looking for some advice and input when it comes to your experience with newborn diapering. I’ll fill you in a bit on my preferences: I definitely prefer pockets. Although I know so many others who really couldn’t care less, a huge bulky diaper on a little baby drives me insane. Obviously there’s no getting around it with a little 6-8 pounder, but I want to reduce the bulk as much as possible. I’m not a huge fan of fitteds and prefolds with covers, because of the convenience factor, as well as the aforementioned bulk. I love my Bum Genius, Fuzzi Bunz, Blueberry, and Smartipants diapers; they are all at the top of the list for me. With all of that being said I have made some early purchases (okay, VERY early, but hey, I just found out I’m having a little …
