I bought the Trumpet (H&L) and the Marigold (snaps). My little guy was born 7lbs 6oz 19.5 in. He is pretty skinny too. I tried to use this cover with a flat and also tried a bulky OS prefold and it is still too big. Just can't get a good fit. Tight on the waist but legs still gap even with the H&L. BUT I can totally tell that once he puts on a little weight they will fit great and for a long time since it has the snap down rise. I think it is totally worth it. You can't beat the price and very happy with the quality. Great product, definitely would be able to use from the beginning if you have a 8lb or more baby probably.
To compare sizes I also have 2 RaR covers (fit much better, slightly big, but works) and 2 Bummis Super Brite NB. The Bummis fit perfectly but I can tell they won't fit for long (no snap down rise and already "fit").

I received my newborn covers in the mail and they are adorable. I have two hook and loop (dinos and trumpet) and one snap (raspberry). They feel quite sturdy for the price and look great. So excited to use these over my prefolds.

Wide legs but easy to use
I got the Trumpet print with snaps. Very cute!
Easy to clean and easy to use.
They do NOT fit for a baby under 10lbs. I just started using them as they were too big before.
The legs gave a wide opening even on the smallest snap. Hopefully this will fit getter. No leaks so far thanks to the great double leg gussets.
Easy to use but runs big.

This cover was one of my first purchases for my newborn stash for baby #2. I started using it around 3 weeks/9# and have been VERY happy with it! Great fit and no leaks. I quickly bought 3 more-- for the quality and price, it can't be beat!

LOVE THESE COVERS
So I'm completely new to world of cloth diapering. I ordered a ton of different styles before my daughter was born so I could see what I liked. Well, I didn't take in to account that she would only 5 lbs 14oz when she was born and needless to say that none of my OS diapers or my prefolds could fit her!
I started searching for newborn cloth diapers on google and I was brought to Nicki's .
I absolutely LOVE these covers. They are just as good as the Thirsties covers (in my opinion) and they are cheaper!! They have a great feel to them and I know I will be able to use these for a long while. I've been using these with a combination of fitted cotton diapers and cotton prefolds and have not had a single blow out or leak.
My daughter is pretty tiny and has pretty tiny legs and these covers are absolutely perfect for her.
Do yourself a favor and get a few!
