how long were your babies in nb and sm covers (and how big were they at birth?)<br>
and are infant prefolds fine on a newborn, or do i need to get some smaler ones too?

my babes were 7 and 8 pounds at birth, long skinny little bugs. The infant prefolds were HUGE on them until they chunked up a little bit, around a month or so, they fit into nb covers for a very short time, I think with dd4 I just started out with smalls and skipped newborn all together. I did use preemie prefolds on her though, the infant were just too big. We didn't use them long, but they make great pocket stuffers, doublers, etc. so it was worth it to have them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I started with CDs at 4 months officially and has bummi sww as my cover. I started with smalls but they were big I could of likely used newborn for a better fit but the smalls worked she was around 12lbs by this time.

we used CD from birth for DS. he was 7lb 2 oz at birth - we had no NB dipes and used the smalls up to about 6-ish months i think (17-18 pounds) but for the last month or so we could also use the medium covers.

She was 6 lbs at birth and I used infant prefolds with nb proraps up until around 2 months when she weighed almost 10 lbs.

You can fold baby regular/premiums sideways for small covers and then the regular way for medium and large <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
If you plan to trifold, it's a great way to go. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br><a href="http://www.mommacommuneboutique.com/FROOGLE.gif" target="_blank">pictures <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"></a>
