    My chubba has been in large itti's since 8 weeks (I was a slacker and used sposies before then).

    How about pre-fold flats with a cover? Might fit a bit better.

    When my baby finally decides to arrive we will be using flannelette flats (I think that's what they're called! The good old 'original' cloth nappies) and bumboo prefolds both with covers. I've also got some small peapods.

    I used the standard terry flats with my daughter. They were easy to clean, quick to dry, didn't leak often (all of which still applies at 18 months). BUT they are quite bulky. This time round I'm going to use prefolds, so much trimmer! I'm making them but they're pretty cheap to buy

    For the first couple of weeks while bub was so tiny, I used muslin flats. Once he started weeing a bit more I boosted them with little bamboo boosters. After a month or so, when even that didn't cut it, and since bub had started to fatten up, I used bamboo flats.

    ETA I found the muslin flats super cheap at a baby shop one day, I think I got 24 for $10 or something, so it's not like they were a waste of money.

    we had baby beehind petite all in 2s, which fit really well from about 4 days old. We only had a few though, and kept resorting to disposables. Next time around I'd use terry flats or prefolds with a cover. It never even crossed my mind with DD :S
