firstly - good luck!
my 2 have been in cloth nappies since we got home, i think it's the best way to get into the swing of the cloth nappy thing - but i guess it does depend on how well you get into the swing of everything else on that roller coaster of new parent hood!
Both my girls have been large, (8lb12, & 9lb 8
) so they fitted into small nappies easily, no need for any extra smalls. I have used tots bots bamboozles (favorite for loads of reasons, including the massive absorption & stay soft despite line drying), fluffles, and motherease sandys. I agree with previous post that Sandy's are a great new born fit. The only negative with them is that they are popper fastening, which doesn't give the flexibility of fit that velcro or nippa gives. and I think velcro is a little easier for the less motivated (dare i say...daddy?) or inexperienced nappy changer! There was one day when DD2 was in a sandy (4 poppers) airflow wrap (4 more) vest (3) and dungarees (9 poppers) and i got a bit fed up with poppers to say the least!
I tried Motherease one size and size 2 bamboozles at an early stage but although you could make them fit on, the poor baby gets totally swamped with nappy and I didn't like that. It's also tricky to get clothes to fit! Now that DD2 is a 15lb 4 monther with thighs like mine, she's graduating into these.
Hope that helps
Enjoy your baby when s/he arrives!
