As the title says - is it worth buying newborn sized all in ones? Ive already got prefolds and covers to use, but thought a few all in ones would be good for while we're out etc.
First time mumma so not really sure how quickly babies grow - i'm assuming pretty quickly so would i be better off buying Small or will they be too big at first??
really appreciate any advice you wonderful cloth nappy mums and dads can give me

I would just use prefolds for a newborn. Ds is 10 months, was premier and is already in large! I really don't see the value in buying small or medium. I went straight for osfm

did you find it hard using the prefolds whilst you were out and about? i guess its just one of those things i'll have to get used to lol

DS was premmie, in smalls til about 3-4 months and mediums ever since (now 20months)
The prefold/cover idea scared me so didnt so i but now that i have experience with cloth i'd give it a crack next time... with going out i'd say it'd b the same as normal, just use a wetbag...?
I found OSFM too bulky on DS until recently but every bub is different

Just do your research on brands also. A lot get the china cheapies because they're a bargain but they dont work so give up all together. I just would be buying toooo pretty of ones while he's small because they wont last long but yes minky is cute. Also, it might take you a couple of purchases to find the right fit for bub.
E.G when tiny, DS would overflow the top of a bubblebub but doesnt now, and he would leak out the side of a bambooty but they're awesome now (i love how trim they are). I've loved ittis all the way.

We bought mostly OSFM but I got two NB size because they were on special. They're great and I wish I'd bought a few more. They still fit her at nearly 4 months old and they fit better than the OSFM at this stage. Although she will outgrow them far sooner than the OSFMs I think if you're planning on having more than one baby it's worth getting a couple of NBs.

DD was 3.75 kg at birth (3.4 kg at discharge). The NBs were a little loose around the legs at first but she quickly grew into them. She's now 5.5 kg.
The NBs we bought were Green Kids.
