I didn't get into CDing until my son was 8 months old and we went with Large FBs. We are starting to think about CDs for the new baby and was wondering what is out there now (I'm sure there is lots new in 2 years!) and what the faves are. I'm kind of thinking about BG or another one size dipe. I have some MEs one size, but I never cared for their bulkiness. Are BG just as bulky?

I don't know about BGs. Any one-size dipe I saw (which admittedly isn't TOO many) seemed like it would be SO bulky on a newborn. Of course, they do grow quickly. But I think if I were going to go the one-size route, I would just use prefolds at least in the very beginning to save on bulk. I love newborn Mutts, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I haven't tried a BG yet, but we use FB's. I started with them with DS1 was 4 months, and we knew we wanted to start immediately with DS2. He was 8lbs 5oz at birth and the smalls fit him decent, I did overlap the snaps. I wouldn't say they are super bulky, but you can tell he has cloth on his little bum. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Prefolds are the most economical for sure but I'm too lazy to go that route <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">: . We're going with fitteds w/ covers for the NB stage. We have a few pockets and AIOs too which is what we'll continue on with when we move up to smalls.

BGs are bulky on a newborn, but not as much as the MEOS. Also, the BGs wicked for us and you may have to get a different insert for the smallest setting . . .<br><br>
We loved the newborn orange edge prefolds with the Bummis snap cover and umbilical cut out from GMD (and at 7 weeks we now love the MEOS).

We used prefolds and pullon dappis for the newborn phase. It was very easy and I loved being able to fold the diaper onto his little bum for a nice trim fit. Plus, there is NOTHING cuter than a newborn in a little tiny prefold (although DS at 19 months looks absolutely adorable in his coverless prefolds too)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I think any baby in cloth is pretty darn cute...<br><br>
totally off topic but I'm in Michigan and it's been super hot and I just feel so bad for all the little bums in sposies in this heat!!

I liked wool for newborns... lets them stay so cool and comfy. I liked "cheaper", thinner fitteds since my newborn was not a heavy wetter and was changed so often. I like SS fitteds. I'd get a dozen or 2 fitteds, and then a dozen prefolds in case all of teh fitteds are dirty. And a few wool saokers and a few wool wrap covers

we'll be using mostly prefolds when our babe comes, with a few fitteds in there too, and some bg2.0 for church and stuff

Prefolds are also great, they can take a little practice to get the folds down right, but it's not too hard.<br><br>
And wool, love the wool! <a href="http://www.hyenacart.com" target="_blank">www.hyenacart.com</a> has a ton of wahms who make woolies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Kissaluvs 0 for the first two weeks, then prefolds....I wanted to love prefolds on my newborn, but she was so tiny and fragile and we were intimidated by the umbilical cord. The KL0s were less intimidating and they worked so well. Not sure it would be worth the money for such a short period of time, though--the KL0s we had were gifts in our case.
