I was told zorb is ready to use but will take 5ish washes to reach full absorbency.

all I can say is try flats!!! I am actually not sure if I even want to go to pockets due to the extra washing and drying time! flats are sooo easy!

ohh hi!! So you have a lovely blog with giveaways?? Link, please?? I am super broke and using receiving blankets as flats with pins and those hideous gerber plastic pants. I am entering giveaways hoping to win some cute fluff until we get our finances sorted and I can buy better stuff.

Right now the only cloth diaper giveaway I have open is for a stay-dry pocket. http://www.blogsfromasinglemom.blogspot.com/2013/05/review-and-giveaway-stay-dry-pockets.html
I've got a soap giveaway and a plant giveaway too though. But I'm working on a review/giveaway for a fitted flat, that should be ready in about two weeks.

I entered! That pocket looks nifty! I am sure I could use it in a flat, right? Just pad fold up one of my flour sack towels and stuff in it there and then place that in a kite folded blanket and use it for overnight....?

I bought a Blueberry Mini Coverall to try. I found a blog post where a lady was showing off her 7 lb 8 oz newborn in various newborn diaper covers and how they fit on his scrawniness. They ended up being one of the best fitting on him so I thought I'd get one to check out and go from there. I now have an XS Thirsties cover (not a fan of the velcro because the tabs always come undone and stick to everything else) and the mini Coverall. I'm not sure what else I want to get or not or if I'll just wait until she's here and go from there. With the weight ranges, if she takes after my other kids, they'll fit past 6 months before I'll need different ones and probably only then because of the rise.

I saw somewhere it recommended to get some velcro strips, the fuzzy loop side. Cut it in squares and when the diaper isn't in use pop one of the fuzzy squares on each tab's hook side. It keeps the diaper chain from happening in the wash and supposedly helps the the tabs stay cleaner and flat.

Thirsties will send you new tabs for free. :) I got replacement tabs sent for free even though I told them that I bought them used! And you just have to buy the front strip from Joann'ss.
