In my experience, contour diapers work for daytime changes, and are great for newborns-they are cheap, easy and many can be washed at once. Once baby gets older they're not as absorbant, can slide around in a wrap on a moving crawler and just don't work as well. However, they can be great in a pocket diaper after the newborn stage (or during).

I don't think I've tried contour dipes -but since I don't a lot of covers, my concern would be breastfed poo running off the countour dipe and getting the cover dirty, every time. If you can find contours with elastic in the legs/back or -add your own elastic, I think it would be fine for newborns. Or if yiou have lots of covers to get you between washes and don't care where the bf poo goes -then its an economical choice. If they're not absorbant though when you need it, be prepared to get/make some doublers.<br>
eta: I went and looked at the site - and no wonder they cost hundreds -everything at ecobaby is <i>way</i> overpriced. 3-4 layers of sherpa shouldn't be too bad for an average wetter either.

No kidding! $18.99 for a HH? I mean they are great diapers I hear, but they still need STUFFING for those! COME ON! YIKES!<br><br>
(this in no way reflects HH, I have seen them sold much cheaper elsewhere, I just don't know why they inflate the price so much at ecobaby?)

And I noted about $30.00 for a large aristocrat! You can usually find a new one for about $20.00 -good grief! And this is before shipping of course...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">
