well I went onto the ecobots website to look at Louises idea of using them while the baby is small. They certainly do work out alot cheaper!! They do say on the website that if a baby has a runny poo, then the cover will have to be changed. How many times a day do babys poo?? Would 5 covers be enough? They also say the NB covers will do a baby from 2.5kg-4.5kg. How old is a baby when it reaches 4.5kg? Will the newborn size then be too small after only a few weeks?
So many questions!! thanks for all your help though!!
I am not sure if anyone answered your questions!
5 covers should be enough. The amount of times a newborn poos can change dramatically from babe to babe so it's hard to tell. You can always get more after the baby arrives
I would recommend getting a snappi and using that rather than pad folding the prefold. It is tricky at first but once you get the hang of it you can stop most leaks. Grab your self a few boosters and some microfleece liners and you will be good to go!!
My babies get to 4.5kg at about 3 months old ... other peoples are born that size. I would say get the small size and if you unexpectedly have a little one you could do an emergency newborn size purchase. They keep their value well so even if you dont use them for long they can be re-sold to recoup your $$$ (or stashed away for your next bub )
