I'm sure there is a separate CD section I could post this question in, but I know a lot of you ladies are using cloth & I'm curious as to whether you start right off using cloth or use sposies for a while and then switch? I ask because my little Deacon was born 7lb 10oz and he seems waaaay too small for anything in my cd stash! I ordered the newborn orange edged GMD prefolds w/ bummis covers. I also have a few fuzzibunz pocket diapers I got as a gift. This is my first time using cloth and I am really excited about it but when I try to diaper Deacon, it seems SO bulky and like it is spreading his legs really far apart. And there is no way his pajamas will snap over that thing.
Here is a pic of Deacon in the smallest prefold and smallest cover I have (both newborn size):
On the GMD website they have lots of pics of babies in cloth diapers, but Deacon's legs just seem like they are pushed really far apart from each other when I put his on. I fasten with a snappi. I thought perhaps I should make the cover tighter but that seemed to squish his thighs in an uncomfortable way. What am I doing wrong here? Is he just too small for these diapers right now?
He is currently 11 days old and using Seventh Generation disposables...but I have this huge prefold stash and want to use it!
