I'm due in February and am planning on cloth diapering my baby. So far I have 9 newborn Proraps covers and 4 Flip covers. I'm planning on buying 2 dozen infant sized prefolds to go under both of the covers. I am probably going to use disposables until the meconium is gone.
I've heard to get the infant prefolds (because they are more absorbent) and fold them the opposite way for when the baby is newborn. I'm worried about two things: will this work, and will I be overwhelmed with cloth diapering a newborn?
I was planning on buying the Indian unbleached prefolds from Cotton Babies, but then I heard that Green Mountain Diapers prefolds are so much better quality and bigger. They are more expensive, and before I sink the money into them I want to make sure I get what's going to work well.
When I went to look at the sizing on the Infant Cotton Babies prefolds, the sizing is 12" x 16". The smalls from GMD measure 12.5x13.5. Is it just a better fit?
Will 2 dozen prefolds be enough for me?
I appreciate any help and advice!
