Ah, the BumGenius Small AIO: the best diaper!!! Too bad they discontinued it awhile back! It's the perfect size between newborn diapers and one-sizes.

With Big Sister, I had ONE of these diapers. Just one! (A light pink one that was on clearance at the Cottonbabies store.) Remember, I was trying to be economical with prefolds and covers back then? I loved that little AIO, though. I remember being sad when I had to change it and wait to put it on E. again! It just fit so well and was SO EASY.
Well, for Baby Sister, my friend gave me a whole bunch of BG Smalls that she had used for her son! (Thank you, E.!) I was so excited to now have 12 of them! And sure enough, they were a favorite the second time around. Here is what I like about these:
* They fit for that tricky time between newborn size being too small and one-sizes still being laughably huge.
* They have a pocket so you can feel if the microfiber is actually dry out of the dryer, AND if it's still damp, you can turn it inside-out for more air-dry time.
* Comfortable for baby! Nice fit on a small bum -- roomy but not gappy or bunchy or poufy. Also trim.
* They fit for a long time!! These easily fit C. from 3 weeks to 8 weeks (about 13 lbs.). Then they maxed out on absorbency. (Thanks to the pocket, we were adding a Ragababe liner for a bit of a boost, but I finally had to retire them. I sold the whole lot to a good home!)
Actually, I still have the pink one! You can tell I'm a crazy cloth enthusiast because I couldn't part with it!
Why did they discontinue this diaper?? If you have the chance to nab some of these used, go for it! It is a much better choice than the BG newborns/Littles.
No matter; when I get my shop up and running, I will offer a diaper for this same convenient size range. :)
