I have 31 BBH bamboo fitted, and 12 itti bitti tuttos for this baby, but it's been a couple of years since I used cloth and I only used it extensively from 6 months last time, so I'm struggling with the following:
1. I have at least 10 small PUL covers (more than I need but they came with some secondhand ones), and 2 small wool covers. Are two wool covers enough, or should I buy a couple more?
2. Can I just skip the newborn covers? I expect this baby to be 4kg or more and a reasonable length, but possibly skinny thighs. the BBH site says small covers are good from 4kg up, but curious if that is other people's experiences.
3. Are flushable liners a waste of time for newborns? I used them religiously with my son, but he was a bit older so the poos were more formed.
4. Do other people use detergent? I remember dry pailing them, doing a cold rinse cycle, and then a hot cycle (with either no detergent, or a tiny amount of the Planet Ark stuff in the pink box) and then hanging them in the sun.
