that site lays out everything you could ever want to know about cloth diapers. and i bought my prefolds from them for cheap. They do sizes so you can pick the kind of fit you want for the baby. loove them.

I used the nb bg aio when ds was a nb. Didn't start the pfs until he was about a month old. Then, I just used the nb pfs folded in a thirsties duo size 1 cover.

This is what I'll be using (also have some wahm covers) and I'm really overwhelmed by all the options and ways to fold them. I've never used prefolds before and it looks really complicated.

I primarily use the newspaper fold. The jelly roll fold didn't contain ebf pop any better for us, and took longer to put on. I have trifolded a few times, but couldn't stand the mess the poo made with the trifold.

Just try different folds to find what works for you. Just remember that there is no "wrong" way to do it. Experiment a little and if you find something that seems to be working, just go with it. :-) you can always adjust ss needed.

I like the angel wing fold. I think that's what it's called... Works pretty good at containing EBF poop for us.
