Please note: We've split our Newborn Cloth Diapers section into two articles. This article discusses newborn covers, prefolds, and fitteds, while a second article discusses newborn all-in-ones, all-in-twos, and pockets.
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.
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.
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.

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!
