Favorite Newborn fitteds?

I haven't posted or really been on diaper swappers in a LONG time. I've been busy with some crazy stuff in life.

We are expecting our third in March. I have 26 newborn aio's. Mostly simplex and basix. I want to get about 10 fitteds to supplement my stash. I will have two kids in cloth and plan to wash every 2-3 days. 36 seems like a good number. I plan to use blueberry mini coveralls as covers. I can't figure out what fitted to go with. I have 1 imse vimse terry fitted for the newbie stage. I want something inexpensive, absorbent and semi trim. my first was 7.5 lbs and my second was 6lbs and born at 36 weeks (If she would have gone to 40, they said she'd have been nearly 10lbs). I have no idea what size this one might be. What are your favorites?

I loved Newborn Goodmamas for my LO. They have a great fit IMO and are very soft and comfortable. I have some for sale in newborn forum
Hope that helps!

Can't say I've used them on a newborn but I've been loving the less expensiveness of GMD workhorses and sandys -- they may be worth looking at. With my first we had KL0 and I liked them too.

I should add, I want to keep the price under $15, *maybe* $20 per diaper if I can.

Thanks Kandarpa! I checked into it and they look soooo nice. I may have to pm you.

Pixi6s - I've tried both before and I didn't like the fit. I don't like the elastic of the gmds on newbies though they are awesome for when the kiddos are older! Sandys were just too bulky but I use them on older kids too. I have been thinking about trying KL0 on this one. Do they get as crunchy as what I hear after so many washes? I hear they lose squishiness with use.

I loved my Wallypop fitteds for newborn and small.

If we would have another baby, they would be my whole stash along with some prefolds

My NB is four days old and was 8 lbs 4 oz at birth and what fits her best out of the bunch are the GMD Orange workhorses. We have all bitty Sloomb and a few others, but the are all too big right now.
