Cloth Diapering a Newborn - more photos!

Thank you to everyone following our series so far!  Cloth diapering a newborn has been so much fun.  Here are a few more photos of some odds and ends.  I think Colby probably weighs around 10 pounds right now.  He is 4 weeks old.

Happy Heiny Mini Onesize

Happy Heinys Mini Onesize - this diaper fits great and I will have them available soon at Cloth Diaper Outlet.  We're using it snapped down to the smallest setting with an extra small Happy Heiny insert. 

Knickernappies OneSize with small LoopyDo insert

Knickernappies OneSize - since the first KNOS that I tried was a custom diaper, I wanted to try a stock diaper as well.  Just like the custom, the regular KNOS fits very nicely and has been a dependable diaper.  This is with a small LoopyDo insert.

Softbums OneSize with small insert

SoftBums - I wanted to try this diaper with a small insert instead of the great big one that comes with the diaper.  As you can see from the pic, I got a very good fit this time.  Almost looks like a newborn diaper rather than a onesize.  However, it has leaked every time we've used it, so I'm putting it away until he's a little bigger.  Then I'll try it again with the insert that came with it.

Tiny Tush Elite with small insert

Tiny Tush OneSize - great diaper, dependable fit, no complaints.  We've used the Tiny Tush Elite two or three times now and it's done very well each time.  This is snapped to the very smallest it goes with a small microfiber insert inside. 

Better Bums small

Better Bums - this is a WAHM shout-out...I bought this pocket diaper from Better Bums on Hyena Cart.  It has minkee on the outside, PUL in the middle, and suedecloth against the skin.  Since this diaper is so tiny, I usually stuff it with a preemie prefold and a Kissaluvs booster.  Not too bulky and plenty of absorbancy.  This fun little diaper has never leaked and we've used it regularly since birth.  Size small fits nicely and he still has room to grow since it's still snapped at the smallest setting.

I think this pretty much concludes the photo gallery of diapers that we have and that we've liked.  We do have a few that we don't like and that are not in our rotation right now.  I can show those in a future post if you're interested. 

As a side note, I have purchased all of these diapers.  None have been solicited for the purpose of review.  It actually didn't even occur to me to ask for free review diapers.  I'm giving honest reviews from my personal experience.  Diapers that work for me may not work the same for you and vice versa...diapers that don't work for me might do great on your baby.  But I hope you're enjoying this series.  I have a few more posts in mind before we're done!
