I think I'm ready to jump in and use cloth diapers for this kiddo, at least on a part-time basis. All of the options seem overwhelming, but seeing as how I don't work much and am wanting to use cloth at home only (depending on how it works out), I was thinking of going with prefolds and covers.
From what I've read, it seems like general recommendations are for 2-3 dozen prefolds and 4-6 covers for a stash to only have to wash every 2-3 days. (Does this seem right?) I think I want to go with Green Mountain Diapers for these, but if anyone else has prefolds that they love I'm open to researching other brands.
Now to my question: This is kiddo #2, and will 100% without-a-doubt be our last child. My daughter was 9.5 pounds at birth, no gestational diabetes but I was 12 days past the due date. My husband is a big guy and I think we just make big kids. I'm expecting a boy this time, and while I am doing my best to eat healthy and exercise this time, statistically speaking he will probably be just as big if not bigger (ugh).
In my situation, would you mess with ordering the newborn/orange size prefolds or go straight to the yellow size (that starts at 10 pounds)? Is there any benefit to having newborn size prefolds later on?
Thanks for your help!
