    Has anyone tried these? I haven't seen any like them anywhere else and the newborn size seems like a perfect match for my stash of covers. I'm afraid the prefolds I have (regular Gerber) will be too big and bulky for a newborn.

    They are the "Cloth-eez Workhorse" and it has a link to where you can see what they look like on a baby.

    I don't want to pay too much for my stash of newborn fluff since LO won't be in them too long and I feel like these could work as inserts later on.

    i just typed cloth-eez on youtube earlier today and saw that someone recently reviewed them. It wasn't in closed captioning so the review was useless but at least I got to see some demostration

    here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?nomobile=1&v=9LsXr0xtMOY

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! I never even thought to check out youtube. She goes through and basically reads off the product description on Green Mountain's website and then goes on to say she really likes them and that they are so easy to use that she has stopped using her pocket diapers. Although she does prefer the ones with snaps over the non-closure ones (it's only a 55 cent difference anyway) The size she was using is an extra large (27-36 lbs) so I wonder how old her child is. But I'm just being nosey lol

    She also said they were very easy to wash and that they came out bright white clean every time and that surprised her. She also liked the cloth-eez doubler that you can get for them and she said she actually purchased the doubler BEFORE the fitteds so that she could use them as inserts in her pocket diapers and that they worked great that way. Which is cool because I have a few pocket diapers.

    to review her review: it was nice but very lengthy and her accent was a little hard for me to understand.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!

    I used them with Preston, I thought they were ok but I really preferred AIOs and pockets over fitteds with covers. They weren't that bulky compared to other fitteds but they were still really bulky with the covers compared to pockets or AIOs. Here are some pics though :)

    He was about 3wks old and maybe 8lbs or so

    Here is the green mountain diaper newborn prefolds for comparison...the fitteds def weren't as bulky as the prefolds

    They look nice although why you'd use pins rather than nippas, I don't know!!!

    very cute! I'm mostly just afraid to buy a lot of expensive pockets for his newborn size...I make my own covers and pockets but I don't have a lot of faith in my sewing for the pockets and I worry they will leak. I'll find out really quick in February!

    He actually fit in his newborn diapers until 3-4mo...the first he outgrew were lil joeys they are really small but the XS Fuzzi bunz and XS BumGenius AIO fit for quite awhile, I really thought they were a good investment. I was able to sell his newborn diapers to fund all of his medium stash, buy an Ergo and pocket some money :) Granted he had a big stash but the resale value of newborn is really good
