Our Favorite Newborn Diaper Covers

In the early days, we loved the flexibility of more than one brand of cover.  For prefolds, simplicity (velcro, tuck-in ends) were important.  For fitteds, I found I preferred different brands depending on the cut of the fitted diaper.  I also found that even for my newborn, I needed size smalls to cover most of my fitteds.

If you plan to use both fitteds and prefolds, I would definitely recommend picking out a few different covers to suit your needs.  Below are some of our favorite newborn cloth diaper cover brands, in no particular order.

Make Your Own Newborn Covers

I also made a few newborn diaper covers, and if you have a sewing machine or know someone who does, sewing your own covers is a fun project!  Here's a link to our newborn cover tutorial.

Prefold and Fitted Infant Cloth Diapers

These diapers are not waterproof on their own and require a cover or wrap.

I often recommend the Bummis Super Brite Wrap, newborn size. This wrap fastens with velcro, and has double leg gussets which act as a second containment for runny poop! If you prefer a cover made with a natural material, you can buy wool soakers through many cloth diapering shops, and through Etsy.

Want to Make Your Own Newborn Fitteds?

Making your own diapers can be a super-affordable and fun way to get custom diapers for a fraction of the cost of buying them!  We have 2 tutorials to help you get started - one for a turned-and-topstitched diaper, and one for a serged diaper.  I made and used both styles, and they were some of my favorites!
