Definition: The diaper is the absorbent part and the cover is the waterproof part that goes over the diaper.
This kit is for those who want to give cloth diapering a try. You might decide that buying 2, 3 or 4 of these kits might make sense. The newborn diapers will get usually get outgrown between 6-8 weeks old but the covers will still fit over size small Workhorse and size small prefolds, too. The wipes keep on going. The picture shows the items after washing.

What is that fluffy wool background? It's a Snugglewool Pad.
I am giving it five stars because it came so quickly and I did get them ordered a bit late. They seem very nice but of course the babies are not here yet. Yes I said babies. I bought these for my nephew and his wife and they are expecting twins. I found out they are going to try cloth as much as possible. I thought this would be a nice way for them to try something a bit different. She has bought some used cloth diapers so maybe these will be nice at night. I know they will not go far as they will be going threw twice as many. She did say she had heard of GMD and they were doing good things. I hope they will be very happy with them.
She's a lanky/lean 6 lbs So we're using green mountain newborn prefolds for now (getting a more precise fit w/ pins) but can't wait for her to grow into these because getting them on her was easy & I can tell we'll like them once they fit more snugly.
I haven’t used them yet (so I’ll update in May or so). What I can tell so far: very well made, SO soft, love the gussetting o the covers, the thickness of the fitted is comforting but not too bulky and I like being able to try out quality wipes. I’ll update in February or so about any shrinkage or change to texture (I doubt it will happen) after I complete the recommended washes. Thank you so much for including the washing sheet. Super helpful!
I was so surprised at how quickly these came! They were easy to prep and seem very simple to use. I really appreciated being able to just buy a kit; cloth diapering can be overwhelming.
The Newborn Give It A Try Kit (with snaps) has been very useful. My daughter was born at 32 weeks gestation and we began using these diapers once she was about full term. They’re pretty snug and contain all of those messy poop diapers INSIDE rather than on her clothes. This would be a great gift for a new parent who is interested in cloth diapering. I’m very pleased with the quality of this product!
