I'm planning on using prefolds with covers.  Has anyone tried to use the small BBH PUL covers on a newborn?  I am trying to work out if it is worth getting hold of some newborn size ones (as they won't be used for long probably and there aren't many around 2nd hand).

I did! The smalls were a little large to start with, but DD2 quickly grew into them (she was 3.77kg born). This time though I have splurged and bought a few newborn sized ones, as I think they will give a "neater" fit.

My daughter fit them straight away, but she was 4.6 kg born!

I'm using the newborn size.  Mine was 3.6kg at birth and is 4.7 kg now (1 month) and we're using them with prefolds.  Have been absolutely perfect - no leaks, easy to wash and dry.  We have 2 BBH covers and 2 others (bambino mios) and the 4 covers just about last us 2 days with just air drying between changes and a rinse or proper wash when they get pooed on.
I can't remember how much they cost new, but given how frequently we've been using them I'd say probably worth it!

The small BBH PUL covers are a bit big for my tiny newborns (recent babe was under 3kg at birth).
