I am new to cd-ing and have a 3 week old. We are using GMD prefolds and workhorses both of which are working out well. We have 3 thirsties size 1 covers with snaps and one mommy's touch newborn cover from GMD, also with snaps.
My question: The snaps on these covers totally confuse me. They have 3 rows of snaps but no directions for which settings to use. I'm just doing whatever works to get the cover on the baby but I'm sure I'm doing it cattywompus (wrong). The Thirsties and GMD websites have no directions about how to optimally use the snaps. My baby is currently 8 lbs. I'm using the loosest setting on the top row because that doesn't constrict her skin and so far there are no major leaks.
