They are not fancy. I bought these for my DD. They air dried quickly after being washed. I bought the 6 pack but really could have gotten away with less. They worked well with a prefold snappied, a fitted, and trifolding. I think if you trifold having 6 each is nice. You can "prep" the next few changes bu just laying the tri-folded prefold in the cover and topping it with a fleece liner. (If you do liners). We didn't tri-fold till near the end of the newborn stage and I wish I had done it sooner.

Proraps were my favorite nb cover but I'm excited to try size 1 Capris with the newb next year. I like Flips but Capris (a 2-size system) are my favorite covers for my 17-month old DS.

Love Proraps. Don't last as long as Thirsties XS, but great! 3 covers for every diaper (4:1 for older babies). I found 6 nb covers not quite enough and 8 to be plenty.

I think you could get by with 12 shells for nb & 8 for and older baby.. that would be if you want to wash every other day.. (6 shells nb a day, 4 shells toddler a day)
Can I ask you which 'pods' (inserts) you used with the Softbums echos on your little one? I have gotten the elastic to size but the bamboo pods seem HUGE and too overstuffed to fit on my 13-pounder.

Good to know. How old is your little one? Does the trifold bunch or move about? That's what I worry about with inserts that don't snap in.

Fave newb: Bummis Super Brite

Fave os: Swaddlebees Capri Snaps (like pp said, a two size system. You could get Blueberry Coveralls for a little cheaper. Blueberry is the "mother" brand, I believe. They say they are one-size but I find they fit more like my Swaddlebees size 2's. They also don't have the front & back flaps for tri-folding & thus, feel less thick.)
