1st 6 weeks

So I ended up with a c-section. Partially because of that we didn't do as much cloth as I hoped at first. It didn't help that his cord didn't fall off for 2 weeks. And most of the newborn stuff I had didn't work for that, even though he was over 8 lbs at birth, and so between 7 lbs 12 oz and 8 lbs 4 oz during the first 2 weeks probably. The only ones that would fit below his cord at all were the Thirsties Duo Wraps with snaps and the Rumparooz NB cover with snaps. The RaR ones with velcro didn't, and they have never seemed that comfortable for him, especially since his tummy seems upset much of the time. I actually already sold them and the Imagine cover with velcro. We are currently using the Thirsties wraps and RaR with snaps over orange-edged prefolds, BumGenius NB AIO's (a bunch of which a friend let me borrow) and a couple stray pockets that fit smaller than others. He is still maybe just over 9 lbs (not gaining quickly, as usual) and we have enough small stuff that I haven't gotten out most of the one-size stuff.

BG NB AIO at 8 lbs. Love the color! (Mirror)

Orange-edge GMD newborn prefold at 8.5 lbs.

A Best Bottoms with newborn insert. Actually loved the fit on this at 9 lbs.
