When were you able to start using your One Size Diapers? - Page 2

post #21 of 41

When I cloth diapered we started out using BG and then started to use more and more of work at home mom diapers, then I came to realization that I wanted to make my own, NOW.. I have a business and make and sell them. I prefer to purchase from WAHM's then commercially!

DS was 8lb 2 oz at birth, and he started using his BumGenius 3.0/4.0's when his umbilical cord fell off at 1 week old.  At that time he was 7lb 6oz.  We never had any leak or blowout issues, other than your typical "mommy needs to change the diaper sooner" leakage.  Here are pictures:

I used both BG pockets and motherease fitteds from about 7 lbs. Not ideal, but they worked.

What worked better was preemie prefolds made from old tshirts. A bit of work to make, but free (and requiring only very basic sewing skills, nothing complicated)!

We use Mother Ease one size diapers (the terry cloth ones) w/ Thirstie covers. They have worked great from day one! A little bulky at 1st. but they work :) Good luck!

I used sposies and prefolds/covers occasionally until she was 6 weeks old (11.8lbs). I had my OS BG and FB and Grovia AIO sent to my addy in the States so I didn't have the opportunity to try them out. I purchase small prefolds and covers to use during the NB period, but they were too big on her so I just used sposies. I regret not purchasing the newborn size prefolds for the beginning, and I will for the next LO

My son was 9 lbs 3 oz at  birth and the BumGenius OS pockets still didn't fit him well until he was a couple months old. He was, and still is, a long, lean kid though. We used yellow edge Green Mountain Diaper prefolds (bought used) with PUL covers (Thirsties were my favorite) until he fit into the pocket diapers better. We still have these and will reuse them on the next kid.

I agree with a few others that the Rumparooz OS is one of the best fitting for newborns. They even have the extra internal gusset to help contain runny newborn poo. And they are really cute too! I also have found that most moms like having some of the nb size prefolds and covers...used with a snappi you can use until about 15 lbs. Tri-folded, you can use them much longer. A couple of thirsties nb covers and a dozen prefolds along with a stash of 24 or more OS dipes and you'll be good to go!

The BG OS fit around 5 weeks and 10 lbs. I hadn't invested in the NB prefolds in advance, but once I did, they were the only diapers that fit for a few weeks. Next babe I will either start with those or Thirsties Duo.

Lil joey rumparoos were absolutely the only cloth that fit my average sized newborn. Even "newborn sized" prefolds and covers such as the thirsties one with the umbilical notch - still too big, they would not go under her cord.

I bought 13 lil joeys and washed every day (with help). Softbums were the first cover that fit, and at 9 months I am still exclusively using softbums with the bamboo insert. Highly recommended as the most adjustable, bulletproof diaper I've tried.

Note: lil joeys come in 2-packs at $30, so $15 per diaper. I got 7 packs and gave one away. They fit premies, just in case you deliver early!

Like any snap diaper, you might get leaks "between sizes" but I used them off and on until 12 lbs. They are a thick "all in one" style so they do take extra time to dry.

Those lil joey nb dipes ARE awesome. I recommend them to anyone willing/able to invest in separate newborn ones. You can easily use them for multiple babes and/or sell with a great resale value. So if you can swing it, totally worth the initial expense!

I use Bum Genius diapers (one size pocket folds).  We bought them when my oldest daughter was 6 months old and I liked the idea that I could just adjust them as she grew, rather than having to store them (since I was already storing so many clothes she'd outgrown).  When my second daughter was born, she also started using them.  For a time, I had both girls wearing the same diapers.

 

The only time I couldn't use the BG's on my newborn was for about the first two weeks, before her cord fell off.  There was no way to fold the cloth diapers down under her cord, so I bought disposables for about the first two or three weeks (and gasped at the price, and told my daughter she'd better lose her cord fast so she could wear her cloth diapers!).  Once her cord was gone, the BumGenius diapers fit fine.

We use Disana Tie Nappies (3 pack for $18)

 

They are OS and fit DD perfectly at 2 days old.

They also fit my almost three year old when I'm in a pinch. :)

 

We went with those because I am tired of velcro, snaps, pins and snappis. I just wanted all-natural everything.

post #34 of 41

The BG one size weren't a leaking issue for our DD, but a lumpy issue.  They were so voluminous on her that it arched her back when she was laying on her back (which was most of the time when she wasn't slinged on me), so we switched to kissaluvs with covers till she fit into medium size dipes.  Even if you're wanting to go with just one stash, I think you'll find that you'll get a LOT of use out of your one-size by the time you're potty training.  You might want to consider getting some prefolds like has been mentioned - they're very inexpensive and you might be able to pick some up second handed at diaperswappers.com ..  ..  sdfsd

When my three year old son was a baby, we had some one size Haute Pockets and some one size BumGenius 3.0 diapers. They didn't fit well until he was about 10 pounds or so, I think maybe around 6 weeks.

I sold my entire stash after he was born (which was a large variety collection of many styles and brands as I was trying to figure out what I liked) and purchased a whole new set when was pregnant with our next child. I chose the SoftBums Echo system. They are a one size diaper with a hidden drawstring elastic toggle on each leg. They are truly a one size diaper that can fit a tiny newborn, even a preemie, from birth, and still expand to fit a big toddler! My daughter is five months old now and weve never had a leak due to a poor fit. I love love love these diapers! Plus the drawstring is hidden, so the diapers are much cuter since they don't have those sizing snaps on the outside. I also like that there is a natural fiber option (I prefer natural fibers over microfiber diapers because the diapers don't get the stinkies as easily).

Sorry for derailing a bit...but do you use just the Disana Tie Nappies without any kind of inserts or covers?

No doublers needed, yet, and she's 6 months old.

At home she sometimes goes coverless, but is mostly in Bummis Whisper Pants or wool.

I loved the Bum Genius 3.0 for DS. As she grew, though, the tabs would fray and her legs would get scratched by the velcro, so we always put shorts or pants on her. She has worn them from birth til now and they are great!

FWIW hee was a progression of a MEOS on my growing wee one from the ridiclous to a great fit.. We had other one size but for whaever reason this is the only one I have the progression pictures.

 

at around 2 weeks old WAY WAY too big the whole thing jsut fell right off if you picked her up LOL she was just around 5lbs here..

a month latter it was "doable" as long as we didn't use any other clothes as you can see the bulk was still down to her ankles

YES!! We PFs are all we use. The Thirsties duo wrap goes really tiny & worked great for us! I honestly think you will pay less for a NB stash of PFs than if you stick with disposables. You can also use the PFs in your pockets if you need a doubler. PFs are my fave :)

To stay "cheap" for the first month or so you could get prefolds or flats and covers.  If you get Thirsties Duos, those covers work on newborns and will last until 6 months or longer depending on your baby.  The flats/prefolds will have multiple uses for when you are done using them as diapers, although you might just keep using them along with the one size pockets.  Thirsties covers have a decent resale, so you'd make some money back off of them.
