Cloth diapering a newborn baby

New to cloth information and pictures of cloth diapers on a newborn baby.

New babies come in many different sizes. Small or Premature baby? We have just a few pictures here on our Preemie Page.

workhorse small no closure 6 weeks old babythirsties snap cover on 6 week old baby 6 weeks old and a big 11 pounds in Workhorse size small no-closure with a Thirsties Duo Snap size 1 in mango over it at the medium rise snap setting. The Workhorse extra rise (length of the front of the diaper) could be folded down before fastening it with the Snappi if a shorter rise is preferred as in the newborn picture above this one but not folding it down works just fine already. Babies grow so quickly. By making sure the rise is up enough like it is in this picture, then that makes the leg elastics snug up to just right so it contains things very nicely. This ability to adjust the rise of the Workhorse No-Closure is what makes it so adjustable and what makes it possible to skip a size for some babies.

 


6 pounds 8 ounces:

There are many ways to diaper a newborn baby. Some favorites are Orange Edge Newborn Prefold Diaper either fastened with a Snappi Fastener or unfastened (just lay it in the cover), with a Bummi Super Whisper over it.

Below, this baby is 10 days old and weighs almost 7 1/2 pounds.

newborn baby crying 4 days old, about 6 pounds in Blueberry Newborn Simplex All-in-One. Even with his knees pulled up the cord dip still works. Newborn babies cry but the little "wahh, wahh" newborn cry sounds are sounds only newborn babies make. It's an amazing sound.


Be sure to read the New To Cloth page here. It lays out how much stuff you need and summarizes the whole setup.


This next baby is about 7 pounds 14 ounces:
