What was/is your favorite NB diaper? Does anyone know of a trim fit diaper? I heard the XS BG were good, but I don't have any exprience with NB dipes yet.


Tolerance obviously requires a non-contentious manner of relating toward one anotherís differences. But tolerance does not require abandoning oneís standards or oneís opinions on political or public policy choices. Tolerance is a way of reacting to diversity, not a command to insulate it from examination.

I thought the XS BG AIOs were OK. I'm a big fan of their AIOs but they were not my favorite newborn diaper. My favorite was of course one that isn't made anymore so I am no help at all!

Thank you Natalie (MrsStuartD) for my Beautiful Siggy!!!

My favorite options for newborns are the fuzzi bunz XS and prefolds with a cover.

my fave were prefolds (trifolded) and covers also. They're excellent at holding runny newborn poop.

Have you looked at the Green Mountain Diapers workhorse fitted? I love them in the bigger size but they didn't have them when Gabe was a newborn. I have all closure-less and snappi them for a better range of fit.

I loved Lil Joey's on him as a newborn. He slept in prefolds/covers, but during the day, I didn't like them as well because I had to change the cover every time he pooped.

I used Lil Joeys the first three weeks, along with XS fuzzibunz and small TKCs and I had 2 BG xsmalls.

Lil Joeys - great for tiny newborn but I wouldn't call them trim. They never leaked. My daughter was 7lb 1oz at birth and was 7lb 6 oz at 2 weeks, and by the time she was 3 - 4 weeks they just got too small. So probably 8lbs...

XS Fuzzibunz - LOVED these. Of the ones I had, these were the trimest. She still can wear the XS FB and was 10lb 11oz last week. We just started wearing the small FB now so the XS will probably get retired here in the next few weeks....

S TKCs - definitely the cutest of them all and I would say not as trim as FBs but my TKCs are AIOs, and the FBs are pockets so not sure if they can really compare.

Xs BumGenius - loved these also, pretty trim as well. Led me to try the small BGs which I LOVE also - but I would say still a little bulkier than the FB XS...
