Hello! I'm new here (sort of... I've been lurking off and on) and have a question about infant CDing.
Our firstborn is due to make his arrival sometime towards the end of this month and I finally made my first CD purchase yesterday, with more to come soon, I'm sure! (I now understand the excitement of buying diapers and sharing your "stash"... I *cannot* stop looking at every diaper store online, ebay, and reading the sew-your-own-diaper websites!)
We're planning to use disposables for the first couple weeks - just because we are clueless about diapers and babies and that's what most of our friends have done . The CDs I purchased are all one-size (a couple Flips with inserts and then a boatload of regular-sized prefolds with econobum one-size covers because we are on the frugal side). I'm wondering now if we'll have trouble with fit and leaking as I've heard the one-sizers don't fit infants too well until about 15 pounds or so...?
Should we invest in a small quantity of newborn/small size prefolds and covers too just to be on the safe side? Or has anyone had good luck with using one-size diapers on a small infant? I guess we could just keep using disposables until he reaches the "right size" for the one size if they don't quite work. But I don't want to wait to start CDs for more than a few weeks.
PS: Since my husband and I are both a little "chunky" ourselves, I expect our little dude may be as well, if that makes any difference in diaper fit
