Very cute and love the fit for tiny newborn bums but with both of my DDs I had to wait 10+ days before I could start using them because they covered the umbilical cord or else rubbed and irritated them if I folded it down like they suggest. I was bummed when my first daughter started leaking for every pee at 5 weeks old (10 lbs) and customer service told me I just had a heavy wetter so we used disposables again until she could fit in the 4.0s. Now I'm finding myself in the same situation with my 6 week old 10.5 lbs daughter. Wish they had more absorbency so I could have used them longer especially since 10 lbs isn't big enough to fit in the one size 4.0s. You're better off just buying disposables for the first 6 weeks- probably would have saved me some money.

We used these diapers for our baby girl from birth (about 6.5 pounds) to just over 9 pounds with no problems. Once she hit the 9 lb range she started leaking through them. We doubled them up with a few cloth wipes for some extra absorbency and that seemed to help. She could probably wear these for a while longer, but since we already have BG Freetimes on hand we tried those and they fit her just fine! I love that these are affordable and allow you to cloth diaper your baby from day one! We didn't have any issues with these bothering her cord stump as I have read in other reviews. All in all, I am glad we purchased these as they allowed us to cloth diaper our baby immediately and served us very well for the first six weeks of her little life! :-)

LOVE these newborn diapers. They are the best! Easy to use, great size, very easy to clean. Never had any leaks and they hold in breastfed baby poo explosions better than ANY disposable we've ever tried. Saved a lot of outfits that way! And the Growing Up in Cloth program made it affordable to use the newborns then switch to the 4.0s, which we also love.

My daughter was only 5.5 lbs when she was born but we were still able to use these. The main reason i ordered these was because i thought it would be low rise. But They did rise up way above the bellybutton so we had to fasten in really loosely. It irritated her umbilical cord a little bit.. but not too bad. They still rise above her belly button now and shes more than doubled her birth weight. also.. the first 5 or so washes.. check the laundry tab cuz some of the hooks and loops get stuck on it. I found it out when I put one on my baby without checking and she screamed out in pain before I could even fasten it. Leaks dont happen as long as I change her every 3-4 hours during the day.. But when shes asleep at night for six hours its fine. It contains her poo well.. we have had a couple blowouts.. but thats mainly due to her being silent as she makes a bm. I also realized that for some colors.. the lining pills--The blue one as well as the red one. The lighter colors like grasshopper dont. I follow the washing guidelines to a T.. only use the diaper detergent and I line dry them...but they look pretty worn (they still do the job) and ive been using them for less than 5 months (my daughters almost 5 mos old .. 12 lbs.. and theyre still a little too big) Overall I think the diaper is ok. Its nice to not have to deal with inserts.. and the hook and loop closures make changing fast and easy (although I prefer the snap). And when the elastic snapped on two of my diapers.. I just sent them in and they replaced them within a couple days. Its not the most absorbant.. and it takes about 24 hrs to line dry after washing. I have 24 newborns.. and I have to do laundry every 3 days. I would probably not buy these again because the main reason I got them (low rise so umbilical cord wouldnt be covered) didnt even apply.

We really liked these while they fit. Very easy to use and to rinse out the poop in the toilet. The downside is they rubbed the umbilical cord, so we couldn't use them at first. And our baby was 8lb 11oz at birth, so he outgrew them quickly. I really wish they made these in larger sizes, we haven't liked the all in one options nearly as much.
