Can Sugar Peas really be used well on a newborn?? Are they really bulky? Do they contain b/f poop?<br><br>
Are they ever going to make print diapers again???

hmmm.......yes and no. I love my SP's, and I think they contain bf poo very well. BUT...I couldn't put them on dd until she was a month old or so, and there is still tons of room to grow. I know I'll get a ton of use out of them. I do reccomend getting them with micro..bf poo has stained my all hemp diapers<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I haven't used them on a newborn, but I think they would work well. I don't think (and I could be wrong) that Carrie has any immediate plans to do more print diapers. I think she's focusing on hemp diapers with pretty wool covers.

I just washed my new SP's and the size 1 is so tiny compared with the 2. The size 1 fits in my hand on the smallest setting and I can still see my fingers sticking out. I am having a hard time believing they are supposed to fit beyond 15 lbs... They are sooo small looking to me. I measured them up to a huggies up to 10 lbs dipe and they were bigger and fatter but I have big newborns so for us they are perfect! If you have smaller newborns you should consider the kissaluvs 0's.

IME, the kissaluvs size 0 weren't absorbant enough so I just sold them and started using the SP size one at 6 weeks old. My ds is much bigger than my dd was. She was 17.5lb at one year, he's 15lb at 4mo. :LOL My dd wore SP size one until she was 2 years old! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
They may be a bit bulky on a newborn, but if I had it to do over again I would have used them from day one. They really aren't all that bulky IMO. When we started using them at 6 weeks old my ds was about 10lbs or so and they weren't very bulky.<br><br>
I actually prefer my all hemp... bf poo stains will sun out quite easily and if for some reason they don't, sprinkle a bit of lemon juice on them before sunning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/coolshine.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sunshine">
