If I had known...

...that I would hate using covers on a newborn, not really care for prefolds on them either, and that the newborn Simplex were the best thing since sliced bread - I would have bought ALL newborn Simplex! Seriously! These fit under his cord from birth (nb proraps and nb workhorse didn't even fit under the cord!), they are easy to change, easy to wash, and less hassle! But alas, I only have 2

So I guess I just wanted to complain...and share! I love prefolds and covers, especially the Flip system, on my 2 yr old, so that's what I stashed up on! It never occurred to me that I might like different systems for different stages.

BTW, if you're reading this and thinking, gosh, I sure wish I had a bunch of prefolds and covers instead of these newborn simplex, PM me! We'll trade lol!

Re: If I had known...

I had way too many prefolds and covers too that got no use. I love AIOs. The Simplex weren't out last time but they look awesome.

No leaking? Are they more absorbent than BGxs?

I have not had any leaks, but he is only a week old today so he's not a super heavy wetter or anything like that

I can't compare to the bgs, I only have all cotton diapers, I can't keep microfiber stink-free!

How long did they realistically fit for? My first was a 9 pounder so I'm assuming my next will be on the larger size too so newborn soakers are really short term at least what we got but I see these are supposed got up to 16lb which is promising.

You can always stock up in Simplex when he needs to size up I have been wanting to try them for a while.

This is good to know. The BG xs absorbency was awful for us and DS outwet them right away.
