Also, I've been looking at Rock-A-Bye Booty covers as my OS covers. They look especially re-use friendly because of the inner part being so "wipeable." Anyone had any experience with these?
Thanks for the help!
My baby is 7 weeks old and 9 lbs and I think is outgrowing her GMD nb prefolds. I would probably try to tri fold any prefolds you have. I would say 5 nb covers is good- I had 9 and only used like 4-5! For OS covers we went with Flips. I like them so far!
You can skip NB pfs alltogether and just go with infant size. Even my super skinny little guy did fine in them.
As for covers, I would have some NB on hand - we even needed preemie size, he was so skinny, but I think 5 should be plenty.
For OS covers though, I would not get wipe-clean interiors. That's exposed PUL and it will get beat up in the wash, particularly if you have any dipes with velcro closures. For sized covers it's not as big a deal because they're not in use as long, but for a cover you want to last 2-3 years, it's just not a good idea, IMO. I like my Mommy's Touch OS covers, and by the toddler stage I can use them for 4 or 5 wets before they need washing, so long as I let it dry in between.
