Cloth diapering tiny babies
One question we hear quite often is how to cloth diaper very small babies. Newborns and preemies can be a challenge when cloth diapering because they are so tiny and thin, it's hard to get a good "seal" around legs and waist. This can be frustrating for new parents during those first couple of months, but investing in a lot of tiny sized diapers that will be outgrown so quickly can seem like a waste of money. Speaking from personal & professional experience a great solution is Happy Heinys Mini One Size. Happy Heinys Minis are designed to fit babies 5-15lbs, so they'll fit right away, but last many months longer than standard newborn size diapers. They come with 2 microfiber inserts - 1 x-tra small and 1 small and an adjustable snap rise, so you can fit them as needed. An added bonus is they come in all the cute colors & prints the standard Happy Heinys come in, so even tiny babies can be stylish! The little cutie pictured is 4 weeks old & was 6lbs at birth and these diapers fit from the first day.
