I’m going to be honest: I wasn’t planning to use cloth diapers on my newborn. I wanted to use disposables during the first few weeks because it can be stressful bringing a new baby home and getting everything — and everyone — acclimated. With two kids, I rarely got a moment to myself, and now that I have three, spare time is pretty much non-existent. Needless to say, after two weeks of using disposables with my newborn, I was done. I needed a new solution because I couldn’t keep running to the store multiple times a week to get more diapers. It was just too much. That’s why we wanted to try Econobum Newborn Covers.
My son was 6 pounds when he was born, so basically, he was a little peanut. He had a tiny waist, skinny little thighs, and could not fit into one-size cloth diapers. To be expected, of course. I started with three Econobum Newborn Covers, which was enough to last us until my son was six weeks old. I paired these covers with extra small prefolds and a Snappi, and was able to get a trim fit with this combo. These diapers also fit low, below the navel to keep the umbilical area dry, so I knew my baby was comfortable.
Overall, I really enjoyed using these diapers. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family who want to cloth diaper their newborn because this is one of the most affordable ways to do it. I would also recommend having a bigger “one-size” stash so they could use cloth after their baby outgrows the newborn diapers!
