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

About 3.5 weeks old in Thirsties Duo size 1 snap over newborn orange edge prefold diaper
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:
Look how big the large brown edge Cloth-eez Prefold looks. One-size does not really fit "all". Newborns are newborn-sized people.
Bummis Super Whisper Wrap size Newborn
Thirsties Duo snap size one
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.
Orange Edge Newborn Prefold Diaper
Bummi Super Whisper Wrap newborn
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:
Lana Merino Wool size small. All of the pictures below are this same baby in the green shirt, 7 pounds 14 ounces.
Cloth-eez Prefold Diaper orange edge newborn is under all of the covers shown below. Yellow edge is too big for her. This baby is started out small and has just outgrown her preemie size diapers and moved up to orange edge.
Bummis Super Brite size newborn. This can also work for large preemies. It's quite small.
Bummi Super Whisper size newborn. This fits a little larger than their Super Brite in newborn does. Nice for average size newborn babies.
4 weeks old, 9 pounds 8 ounces

Disana Organic Knit Wool pull-on size newborn. Soft and comfy-cozy. It's hard to choose my favorite, but if I had to pick, I think I'd pick this one.
8 pounds, 6 ounces, 2 weeks old.
Very soon baby will be in size small. Enjoy your babymoon.
