We are using cloth in combination with these diapers on our 6lb newborn. Most of our cloth did not fit until the cord stump fell off, so we folded down the front of these and they worked great. No leaks. Mother in law bought some Huggies Pure & Natural and those leak out the sides and fall down because of the low rise. These are great diapers and I am very happy to have them as an option when we are out and about or traveling. I was not about to buy Pampers or use anything with chemicals on my baby, so I feel better using these when we need a disposable option.
