It has been almost 7 years since I diapered a newborn, and in that time I have apparently lent out my newborn cloth and didn't get it back...so I had to buy more!  I found a great shop that has used stuff and bought a bunch of covers and also a few FuzziBunz size small.  Will those work with a newborn, or will they be too big?  Also, I have BumGenius 1.0 inserts that I can put in them, but am wondering if that's too big for a newborn and what else I can stuff it with.  

 

I have a few preemie prefolds still and a large supply of infant prefolds, and bought a bunch of small PUL covers...will I be able to just trifold them into the covers for a newborn, or will the poo be a mess?  I think last time I had fitteds and didn't start the trifolding until he was older...I just can't remember about newborns!!

 

Thanks!

No. Small fb perfect size won't fit a newborn. They'll fit sooner than a one size but not from birth You need a newborn option still.

Size Small Fuzzibunz will not work until baby is about 15lbs.  I used XS on my newborn and he still didn't fit into those until he was about 3 weeks old.  He was very skinny.

Small FBs only work on super huge newborns.

 

I just trifolded my prefolds and washed a few more covers.

Old style or new style (we have both) it won't matter. Too big.
