Does anyone use a newborn prefold as a doubler? Do you find them too thick or do they work just fine?

How many doublers do you think I'll need? Baby is not here yet but I'm thinking I might want to get some from the seconds sale GMD is doing in December. I'm already thinking in terms of using prefolds through potty-training btw, so you have more of an idea of maybe how many I'll need.

Are you asking about each size? Or just preemies?
If I had the perfect prefold stash, it would be:
18 preemie prefolds (I never used those solely as diapers, they were way too small for my newborns)
30 newborns
24 smalls
24 mediums
18 larges (which you may never use, so wait on that)

Or you could do flats and only get 24 smalls and 24 larges and be done with it. The smalls could be doublers as well, once you need them.

I use a GMD NB PF as a doubler at night under a workhorse or inside a BG AIO/ OS Pocket.  I haven't found either to be too bulky.  I have a dozen.

Oh! Ok! Maybe I'll just try that then. I'll try using a NB PF as a doubler on my 3 y/o before I order any preemie PFs.

I love our imagine pf (from nickis diapers)  in xs size for doublers. They are a little thicker (3x6x3) than premies(2x4x2) but not as thick like regular pf (4x8x4) Just in between-perfect for doublers IMO.

Oh, yes...I got that wrong the preemies are 2x6x2 ...I just know that they are thinner than the imagine ones. I have some preemies that I used to use as a doublers (LL, GMD, and cotton babies), but since I got the one from nickis diapers I like the much better for that reason.
