I started cloth diapering about a year and a half ago when my second son was 4 months old. Seeing how he was young and "normal size" I went with a variety of one-size pocket and AIO diapers for my stash. Now looking at my stash there is no way many of these diapers are going to fit a newborn! We don't have the luxury of being able to afford $12-18 newborn diapers so I'm either gonna have to buy some good prefolds and covers (maybe second hand?) or I'm gonna have to get handy and make some of my own.
I have plenty of diaper fabric just sitting around, so the obvious choice would be to make my own. My worry is that I'll make myself a whole newborn stash only to find that the don't fit or don't work well. I had tried making my own AI2 diapers and had the fit down but leak issues through the stitching at the legs. What is your opinion? Should I start trolling sites like Diaper Swappers for cheap used diapers or start making my own AIO or fitteds & covers?
