Best diapers for nb's?

So I've never actually diapered a NB before lol, with my younger two I started once they were in OS/mediums. I'd really like to cloth diaper from the beginning, even if its for the most part (with everything else we need to buy I don't know if I'll have enough to get a full stash) all I have bought so far is 4 fitteds and will get some covers but was wondering what the best option is for nb's like what is the most absorbant/best for the money type of diapers?

I, too, have only cloth diapered once baby has reached the 10 lb mark (which for my big kiddos is like month #2 ).

However, I will say that I sold cloth diapers for a while and the number 1 RETURNED diaper was the AIO NB Grovia. BF poop was ridiculously hard to clean out of the leg gussets. Just my $0.02 of experience....

Re: Best diapers for nb's?

Depends SO much on the newborn. With my son I honestly liked flats folded in a bummis cover (he didn't develop PUL sensitivity until 6-9 months old, at least that we could tell). Newborns can seem to drown almost in those big squishy diapers and flats/covers were still relatively trim. (And washed and dried up quickly). With DD I really liked fitteds with a snap down for the cord, and made some GMD workhorse style fitteds as well that I loved. I've heard great things about NB workhorses but never owned the actual brand to speak from experience.

Re: Best diapers for nb's?

We are almost over the newborn stage and ready for the one sized pockets I have. She got rid of most of the black poop before we left the hospital. The hospital gave us two packs of newborn diapers to take home, and once we were done with those, she was good to go in the newborn BG AIO's I had. I have 11, and they were great. I am about to list them, because I think she is ready to move on up. They actually fit her pretty well (I had to bend over the tab that comes above the aplix to protect her belly button for two weeks). She was 6-7 when born, and is about 11 pounds now.

If I didn't already have a decent NB stash, I would absolutely do a cloth diaper trial with Kissed By the Moon. You pay $30 per month, plus the actual cost of however many diapers you want. Then when you return them you get your money back minus the $30 rental free. I would get 2 doz (or more) NB Simplex.

That's good to know. BTW does the nb simplex have a snap down for the cord ?
