They don't quite last as long (meaning fewer years). I had some that have lasted through 3 babies. Of course, they were part of a rotation with some Chinese cotton ones. Their fabric is different, its birdseye instead of more flannelly material, if that makes sense. And they have batting in the middle instead of extra layers of fabric, I don't think they absorb quite as well.
All that said, I wasn't unhappy with them, they worked, they did the job. They are a little big for the newborn stage, would have to be folded over another time or 2 at the waist. If you can, buy yourself a couple dozen of the smalls, or ask your family to buy some from the local diaper service (they they don't have to buy online). I'm not attached to any one brand or company. Many people rave about the Green Mountain ones, I've never touched them, myself, and have been wholely satisfied with my diapers bought from the diaper service.
