Best 0-3 month dipes that are affordable?
I've always come back around to fuzzi bunz perfect size for their fit and ease. I've never been a fan of prefolds in a cover, or one size bulky diapers. however, affordability is key this time, so FB's are out. I did get some Kawaii's cheap ($5 each new with inserts) through a friend, but they are bulky and I'll use them later.

Soooo..... I think I'm looking more towards fitteds with simple covers. Maybe bummis whisper snap (or something similar...I'm just not familiar with this type of thing).

What are your suggestions?

Oh! What about the Green Mountain Workhorse?

I remember... I think why I liked pockets vs fitted is because I felt that the pockets had the inner lining that pulled away wetness, whereas with fitteds they are just wet up against the skin. Therefore making for more rashes. :think

We did a combo of tiny prefolds and flats with covers until they could fit in out bumgenius. I tended to line them with some microfleece for overnight. I hate the wetness too. Then I use the prefolds and flats to stuff the pockets because I hate microfiber inserts.

I have a random mix of pocket dipes. My very favorites are sun baby diapers. They are very reasonably priced.

We did prefolds and covers here, too, but I have heard nothing but raves about GMD workhorses. For itty bitties I always lay fleece in the diaper against their skin to help with the wetness issue. I just bought some scrap fleece on clearance and cut it in strips - worked great!

I used Bummi super whisper wrap and super bright last time, this time I also have some thirsties duo size 1s, prowraps and a couple other misc. that I was gifted. :heart Can't wait to try them on my newbie, hopefully in the next couple of days! Come on, baby! ;)

I love my flats, they are trim and they fit forever. I had them on wiggle worm when she was under 5lb (And they werfe a bit bulky then but not by the time she was 7lb) and they fit early bird till she trained at 3.5 and 34lb

Kawaii's are excellent as overnight diapers. I use prefolds and covers, but I think for newborn-3ish months you need the smaller prefolds if you're going that method. I've heard excellent reviews about GMD. I bought my prefolds from CottonBabies.

I like the pocket diapers for the same reasons. :yes I tried a layer of fleece over the prefold before too, and I wonder if that trick might work better for smaller babies that don't pee as much? I tried it for DD a few months ago and it didn't wick anything, but she's a heavy wetter so... :shrug3
