No, I'm not pregnant again! But I'm just curious for the next time around...
I used to use gDiapers, but I like FuzziBunz way better, so I use those now. I did, however, notice that gDiapers has a newborn diaper that has a scoop that won't sit on the umbilical cord. Keeping that in mind, I was wondering what some of you think are good options in the hospital? Also, with a husband who is NOT on board with CD, and nurses who may or may not be familiar with them, I am unsure about what type to use. Prefolds with a cover? FuzziBunz, since I'll probably use those a lot anyway, and they are put on the baby similarly to a disposable? Let them use disposables until we go home (I'm not opposed to disposables on occasion)? I will admit that I've read so many suggestions from everyone in this forum for months now, so I know all the options out there, but I've only tried gDiapers, FuzziBunz, another really crappy brand of one-size, and Gerber (ugh) prefolds. Are there any that are better for newborns with the umbilical cord?
Oh, by the way, my babies are BIG! My last one was 9 1/2 pounds, and wouldn't fit into a newborn Pampers Swaddlers...they had to put him in size 1 Pampers instead. So if I got GMD prefolds, I was thinking of size small.
So, any suggestions?
