I just thought I'd share my journey, as I slowly dip my toes into the pool of cloth diapering. DS is 4 months, but only weighs 12lbs 9oz, he's a big time mover and is on the skinny side.
Last week I bought the Bummis BeautifulBASIC Infant Boy package which came with 3 prefolds and 1 cover for 8-15lbs. I liked the idea of a sized diaper in hopes that it wouldn't be too big, but dislike the fact that in a couple months we'll likely have to size up.
My first impression of the diaper being big and bulky still stands true. I just don't like that DS doesn't seem able to be as mobile in the CD. But I do like that we have saved the world from 8 disposable diapers to this point.
MY other initial fear was a "poppsplosion" as disposable diapers seem to have a tough time containing my BF baby's poop. Today DS put the diaper to the test and took an enormous poop. The cover kept it in, but got quite poop covered. We were able to wash and rinse the prefolds and cover, and can only see a slight yellow stain on the edging of the cover where the elastic gathers. It is outside in the sun right now to see if that helps. All in all I put that in the win column for CD.
I'm anxious to hear a friends attempt at CD last week as she tried BG 4.0 - we're swapping stories tomorrow. I'm very curious to hear if anyone on here can recommend a nice trim fit CD. I know gdiapers look trim, but they get mixed reviews and are pricey. Suggestions ladies? I plan to try at least 1 - 2 more brands as I build my mini stash of CD. (DH refuses to go exclusively CD, so I'm also looking to try Flips since I can use disposable inserts).
