The flats I ordered were delivered this past weekend. I'm going to be using mainly flats (have some prefolds) with knit soakers.

I was practicing different folds I found online on one of dd's dolls that is slightly smaller than a newborn and every fold seemed gigantic beyond reason. Like all the way up to the neck in the back and up to the nipples in front.

I haven't diapered a newborn with flats but I'm thinking a prefold fold: http://gumbush.com/folding.htm or triangle: http://www.borntolove.com/folding.html will be my go-tos when they're tiny.

whichever folds you try, I'd jelly-roll the sides if possible to contain that newborn bf poo.

Here's a link with a photo: scroll down - it shows how to take an origami fold and make it fit.
