When will one-size diapers start fitting my baby?

Posted by Lilli Cannon on 8/11/2010
Each time I do a Cloth Diaper Orientation session, I always get asked, "Can we just get a bunch of one-size diapers and use them from birth?"  And I sadly have to say, "Usually not."  Like one-size-fits-all t-shirts, one-size cloth diapers usually do not fit all newborn babies.  They are often not small enough at the legs to fit a tiny newborn, and they almost always would cover the umbilical cord, which needs to remain dry and uncovered until it falls off.

Our last baby was 8 lbs 4 oz at birth, and one-size diapers didn't start to fit her until she was 7 weeks old and about 11 lbs.  She could still wear many of her newborn diapers at 4 months, so I really feel we got our money's worth out of her newborn stashFuzziBunz One-Size and Rump-a-rooz One-Size didn't exist then, though, and these can get small enough for some babies once their cords are off.  I am excited to try these on my new baby in September to see how soon they will fit.

What is your experience?  Please leave a comment telling:

1.  How big your baby was at birth.
2.  When one-size cloth diapers started fitting (age and weight).
3.  What brands you tried.

hi! Still pregnant...but I'm hoping for a baby smaller than my husband's birth weight which was 10lb 4oz!!!

He was 7 lbs 7 oz. I had a nice fit with one sizes around 12 lbs, 6-8 weeks. We tried govia, grobaby, goodmama, and bumgenius.

Rae was 8 lbs. 7 ounces when she was born (7 lbs 13 oz at her lowest). We havent tried OS yet, but shes long and skinny. Only 9 lbs14 oz, but 23 inches long at 9 weeks. We'll be trying BG 4.0 as our first OS. For now, shes still in XS covers and sized BGs.

8#4oz & 8lbs If bG 3.0 count as OS, we started using them around 9-10lbs, but have used MEOS with good success at about 2-3 months. They are workhorses, so easy to take care of, just need big covers. Mother

My babies have been 8-3, 7-7, and 8-3 respectively. I didn't try one size's with any of them until they were much bigger. I have some Rumparooz that I hope to be able to use with with our newest baby (due any day) once her cord falls off.

Our baby was 6 lbs 2 oz at birth. Her big sister's bumGenius one-size started to fit her at about 8-9 lbs (5-6 weeks)--that is, she could wear them, but they were really too big and bulky to wear under anything but a nightgown. They fit fine at about 10 lbs. However, we had 2 dozen infant prefolds and 6 Thirsties covers that fit her great from the time her umbilical cord fell off. The Duo cover size 1s fit her perfectly even when she was first born, though they covered the umbilical cord. The

Hi! We started CD'ing when my daughter was 15 months old, so I never got to try them on a newborn. I am looking forward to CD'ing from the start the next time though!

Hi! I never cloth diapered a new born. DS was 10 lbs 5 oz at birth though so it makes me wonder if a OS would've fit him at birth.

I started cloth diapering my littlest at 6 weeks. He was 8 pounds 9 ounces at birth and like Lilli's baby was around 11or 12 pounds by the time I tried the one size diapers. What worked for me then was a prefold and Thirsties duo wrap cover. He's now three months old and wears a one size bumGenius 3.0 perfectly though I still go back to the old prefolds on occassion.

The Thirsties XS covers were a little bigger than the size 1s on the smallest setting (although they are advertised to dip below the umbilicus, on our daughter the XS covers did cover the umbilical cord, so we used disposables for that first week). She is just outgrowing the Thirsties Duo size 1s and the XSs now, at 6 mohths, so they were well worth the investment.

DS was 7 lbs 11 oz at birth. I was given a BG diaper when he was 4 weeks old and it fit him then. He was about 10 pounds at the time. His umbilical stump had already fallen off- at about 3 weeks.

My baby was 6 lb, 11 oz and cloth didn't start fitting him well til he was about 7 weeks and closer to 10 lbs.. We had a XS BumGenius and an XS Thirsties and they fit for awhile but I didn't have enough to do CDing full time.

Our son was 6 pounds, 7 oz at birth. We used our first one-size (Fuzzibunz) when our son was about 10 pounds, which was around 10 weeks. I am sure that he could have used it before then because we didn't have to adjust it to the smalllest size for it to fit. We just hadn't tried one before he was that age.

My first was 6lbs8oz, my second was 8lbs3oz. Neither could wear any OS dipes that I tried until they were almost 2 months old. I tried BumGenius, FuzziBunz, and Tiny Tush. Forget the Tiny Tush, they were too big until my daughter (first born) was about a year old. Huge. The FuzziBunz OS might technically fit sooner, but they are so bulky that the baby's clothes would never fit over them. Plus the elastic is constantly coming out of the little hole it's meant to stay in which doesn't really

My son was 7 lb, 6 oz. I think we started using BG 3.0 when he was around a month. I think with a future newborn we would get a newborn stash. It did feel like it took a while for one size diapers to start fitting well.
Beth Hughes
Date: 8/11/2010 9:48:24 AM
Did that get cut off? ...which doesn't really affect how the diaper works, but drives me nuts nonetheless. I think the BumGenius can be worn soonest. It is the trimmest and has a low rise on the smallest setting. However, I am a big fan of a prefold (or a stuffer) in a Prorap newborn cover for the first few weeks. It was perfect on both of mine.

Miles was 8 lb 8 1/2 oz, but I'm pretty sure all his weight was in his face because he had the tiniest butt and super skinny chicken legs. I tried BG 3.0 and BG AIO organic on him. Honestly can't remember what week he started wearing them, I think it was 7-8 weeks and he was around 10-11 lbs.

My daughter was 7lbs 4oz at birth and I only had 2 newborn cloth diapers at the time, a gift from a friend to introduce me to the cloth diapering world. The one was a "sposoeasy" and I thought it was the nicest little diaper. I didn't start trying them with her until she was about 3 weeks old (after the cord fell off) and with only 2 diapers I didn't use them often seeing as how she went through diapers every hour and didn't buy my own cloth diapers until she was almost 3 months old. But I am

Scott was 8 lbs. 13 oz at birth but we just cloth diapering a few months ago (he's 17 months). I still don't feel like one-size diapers are right for us! He has a tiny waist and thunder thighs so I feel like those 2 combos make diapering hard in general. We have only tried bottombumpers, because I am afraid to try a $20 + diaper and have it not work out :'(

Our baby is one month today and is mostly in one-size diapers. He was 7lbs 3 oz at birth. He wore the fuzzibunz one-sizes as soon as his cord was off (until then we used bumis small prefolds and covers) and they fit well because I could just adjust the leg and waist elastic for him. They come up high on his belly since they don't have the snaps to shorten them, but they work fine and seem comfy. Shortly after that we got some rumparooz and we love them. These fit great because we have them snapp

Our kids were on the big side - 8lb 6 oz and 9 lb 3 oz. We don't use one size, but we found we could go right into small (rather than newborn) in just about everything, We had a few hand-me-down newborn covers that lasted about 2 weeks on our kiddos! I will say that we were able to use the same prefolds from birth to potty-training, just switch out the covers when they get too small.

Lil man was 7 lbs 13 oz at birth and started cloth around two and a half months (about 14 lbs)--big boy. Since he is larger OS worked out great at this point! We went with Fuzzbunz, GroBaby, and BG (Fuzzibunz had become the favorite).

my 3 boys were all in the 10 lb. zone at birth. ( unfortunatly we did not cloth diaper them. ) now expecting a girl and planning on cloth diapering all the way. i was looking for this very info. if she follows our big baby trend it looks like we won't be needing prefolds for very long at all!

She was 7 lbs 7 oz at birth but we didn't start cloth diapering until she was 3 months and probably 10 or 11 pounds. The Happy Heiny OS were too big around the legs and leaked about 1/2 the time until just recently at 4 months, 13 lbs 13 oz (and the thighs have gotten much chubbier). The FuzziBunz have fit from the first day we tried them, we've never had a leak with them.

I didn't start with cloth diapers until my daughter was about 16 months old. We were talking about what to do with future children. Even on the smallest setting the BumGenius 4.0 looked more like a size 2 or 3 Huggies. I don't see my husband as a pin/snappi guy with a wiggly, screaming newborn.

Our son was 8 lbs 9 oz at birth. We started out with prefolds and Thirsites (XS) and Bummies (S) covers, as well as a few XS Kissaluvs fitteds. We didn't try OS diapers until around 4 months, when I bought some BumGenius 3.0s. By that time, he was over 18 lbs (he's been +95th percentile for length and weight since one month) and we were already using them at the middle snap setting, moving to completely unsnapped probably a month later. He can still wear them now at 9 months, but they're a littl

Maybe around 3 weeks (didn't get much use out of them even though I bought A TON :) He was probably around 10lb when they started to fit.

We didn't start using cloth until our daughter was a year old (19 lbs, 30 inches), so I can't say, but hopefully I'll be able to in the future, if we're able to have a second child :-) We use FuzziBunz One Size.

My baby was 8 pounds at birth. None of my one-size diapers fit at first. My BabyKicks Bumboo started fitting the earliest; around 1 month and 9 pounds. My Flips fit at 3 months and 12 pounds. However, my Thirsties Duo wraps were fantastic from birth. The Duo diapers weren't out yet, but maybe they would work?

My daughter was born 5weeks early at 6lbs but then dropped down to under 5 after birth. We didnt start cloth right away since she was unexpected to be born early and we still had to buy cloth. Now she is 11wks old and she wears os diapers though some of them are a bit big still. We have to find some more so we dont have to wash everynight though. Right now she is laying next to me in a os and there is a huge gap between the diaper and her belly, but we havent had any issues with leaking yet. :)

My babes were 7 lbs 6 oz and 6 lbs 9 oz at birth. I tried FBs on #1 right away. They fit, but kept rubbing her umbilical cord, so I had to switch to disposables so it would heal. With #2 I waited until his cord was healed for the FBs at about 3-4 wks. I think prefolds would probably work on a newborn, but never tried it. Oh, and for new moms of boys, here's something that no one ever tells you: when putting on your baby's dipe, make sure his penis is pointed DOWN!!! Otherwise, he leaks

Oldest Daughter was =7lbs, and stayed tiny, we first tried BG when when she was about 6 months and 11 lbs. My second Daughter was just over 8 lbs, and she started wearing her bg around 2 months and 10 lbs, My third daughter was 9 1/2lbs, and she could have worn BG from birth, but they were a little loose around her legs. They started fitting around 1 month and 10 1/2 lbs.

My son was 8lbs 1oz when he born. I unfortunately did not start CD'ing until he was 6 months. Some of the first diapers we tried were gro-baby/gro-via's and prefold and covers. I especially like kissaluvs and thristies covers We've moved on to fitteds with covers now. They seem to be the best for my super-duper heavy wetter!

We didn't try any OS diapers on our little one until she was about 3 months old and approximately 14 lbs. She was 7lbs even at birth. Even then, we primarily used them as extras until she got a little bigger, since they tended to be more bulky. For her newborn stage we loved our Kissaluvs size 0, prefolds and covers and SposoEasys for a trimmer fit and ease of use.

My 3 boys were 9 lbs 15 oz, 9 lbs 10 oz, & 8 lbs 4 oz. I didn't start CDing until after the 3rd was 3 months. SO, I have no idea if/when the OS would fit. HOWEVER, I do plan on having a 4th so we'll see :) I have flip, snug to fit, and a WHAM OS. I think they'll work AFTER the umbilical cord comes off (I think it may rub otherwise).

We only had a couple of leaks. I also had one old style (no hip snaps) FuzziBunz that did not work at first. She was probably 5-6 weeks before it fit ok? I now have a couple of the new FB and I think that they would do better on a smaller baby. However, I will say that we also have a couple of small sized FB

Our son was 7lbs 14 oz at birth. We tried Flips, Gro-Baby, and bumGenius Organic. Flips fit at about 4 weeks/9 lbs. We didn't use Gro-Baby long enough to know when they would fit; we just didn't like them. bumGenius Organic started fitting best at about 6 weeks/10-11 lbs.

Well, I didn't start cloth diapering my daughter until she was 5 months old and about 13lbs. The Bumgenius 3.0 (which was pretty much my entire stash at the time although, I did have a few Fuzzi Bunz. )fit her great then. She was 6lbs.9oz., when she was born so they wouldn't have fit her anyway.

My youngest was 8 lbs 8 oz at birth and I mostly used handmade fitteds or prefolds with recycled wool soakers until I finally bought a kissaluvs cotton/hemp fitted (fits 15-40 lbs) with snaps. It fit him and then and fits even better now! I think he was around 9 months old and in the 17 lb range at the time. I also tried a friend's goodmama about the same time and LOVED it!

My son was born just under 6 lbs and was 5 lbs 7 oz when we brought him home. He was about 10 pounds by 2 months and at that point we could use grobaby's on him pretty well (as a cover with a prefold inside). Rocky Mountain Diapers also fit him really early, probably around 4 weeks & 8 lbs because the legs adjust so well.

We used sized diapers up until we bought a few one size diapers at 6 months. I've heard from most that they start fitting around 9-11lbs depending on the build of your baby. At 6 months and 17lbs, we are using the middle snaps on the BG OS. My advice for a new CD-ing mom or dad would be to buy a newborn stash in a size small enough to fit below the cord and by the time they grow out of these (prob just a few weeks!), they should be ready for OS diapers!

Little miss was 6 lbs and 2oz at birth. We are mainly using kissaluvs, prefolds and rumparooz. She is barely fitting in the one size rumparooz a little after she lost the cord stump.

I'm due in just a couple of weeks. Our stash is mostly OS diapers but I have prefolds and newborn size covers for the newborn stage. I figured that was the cheapest way of cloth diapering a newborn, plus the prefolds could be used later as inserts or doublers.

My son was 8 lbs 4 oz at birth. We didn't even have one sized diapers until he was about 3 months old and even now don't have a huge stash. I wanted to wait and try a bunch of different kinds and am still in that process. All I've tried are Cutie Baby and BumGenius 3.0

My babe was 5 lbs 10 oz. I tried and tried to start her in cloths... and finally broke down and bought a few newborn prefolds (which still looked ridiculous!). She didn't fit into any of our CDs till about 2 months. We went with: prefolds w/Thirsties x-small and small duowrap, GroBaby, and a few BumGenius which took a little longer till she fit those.

My daughter was 7lb 14 oz when she was born. We tried BG one-size(organic and 3.0) grobaby and bum wear. I really preferred the kissa and hieney huggers fitteds with a cover for the first few months. The one-size options really didn't fit until 12 lbs and even then they were really bulky for such a small baby. Of the ones we tried the organic BG and the gorbaby fit best earlier on(maybe 11 lbs)

We didn't cloth diaper right away. :( She was 6 pounds, 6 ounces...and I think all of our OS diapers would have been pretty huge on her. We started when she was about 3 months old, and she was in the smallest snap size in the BG 3.0's that we used exclusively back then!

Didn't CD either of my girls but will be starting early with this little guy. I ordered a few OS covers to try but got mostly Thirsties Duo Wrap size 1s. I've never bought newborn 'sposies--DD2 went straight to 1s (9lb 8oz at birth, 10lbs at 8 days old), and DD1 was out of newborns by the time she was 2 weeks old (9lbs) and we ran out of the ones we took from the hospital. So I'm hoping the Duo Wrap 1s size down enough to use after the first fe days!

Hi! We started using one-size diapers with our daughter when she was about 3-4 months old. My kids are on the small side, she was probably about 10-11 pounds at that point. She was only 6 lb, 5 oz at birth. As far as brands go, we used Blueberry one-size and Bumgenius 3.0s. And we're still using them today and she's 20 months old and about 21 pounds. :)

Maks was 7lbs. 6oz. He wore prefolds and size small BG AIOs until the end of his sixth month (he was a 3rd percentile baby). We started putting him in one sizes around this time because they were just too bulky before. We are die hard BG OS fans...they seemed to be the best for night time stuffing. Now we also love Rumparooz and the slim fit of a Fuzzibunz. He's still not a big baby at eleven months (ab 27 lbs).

I bought a few more small siize HHs to get us through until we could decide on the OS system we wanted to use. When he was almost 2 months I was able to try both a BG 3.0 OS on him and a FB OS on him. My husband liked the aplix better than all the snaps (I think they're a little onerous as well).

We never tried one-size diapers on a newborn, but had tons of issues when we switched to one-size when our son was about a year old. We are 3 months into this journey and the rumparooz are by far the best! I think they would fit a newborn and I've seen pictures of them on tiny babies, but we'll see. Interested to see how it works out with your new little one.

My son was 8.4 at birth and I think we first tried a FuzziBunz at about 2 weeks and it fit. He is growing fast though and was already over 11 pounds at 2 weeks. The Kissaluvs size 0 were a waste for us - he could only wear them a couple weeks. I didn't CD my daughter but I am sure it would have been the opposite because she was only 5.13.

I've also tried BumGenius 3.0 sized, BottomBumpers, GroBaby/Via, prefolds and covers, Kissaluvs and covers (for night time) and Kushies. Love the FuzziBunz OS - they will be going to daycare with E

I have cloth diapered two newborns. The 1st round, I didn't know as much. She was 8 lb 7 oz, and bumgenius OS 3.0 are all we had. They "fit" almost right away, but started working well around 6 weeks. Before 6 weeks, either her thighs weren't full enough, or there was enough bulk in between her legs (even w/ the newborn insert), that it sort of pushed the diaper away, and she would leak thru the legs if I layed her down to sleep. Baby #2 was 9 lb 1 oz at birth, and by then we also had Rumpar

I use MEOS and they didn't start to fit my baby girl until she was about 10lbs. She was 6 lbs 14 oz when she was born. We used disposables for about 6 weeks because we didn't know any better! Then we started her in small g diapers with prefolds inside and we had lots of leaks because she had skinny legs. Once we switched to "real" cloth diapers, we had no leaks at all! It's been great. I totally plan on buying some newborn size cloth for baby #2.

We tried bumGenius, Baby Kanga, Blueberry, Wonderoo, Haute Pockets, and I'm sure others. None of the diapers worked on him as a newborn. The bumGenius and Blueberry were the first to fit at about 12-13 lbs (2 months). My 3rd was smaller, 6 lbs. 15 oz. The only one-size diaper that fit was GroBaby (although it was way too bulky so we didn't actually use it). On my 3rd we tried

My baby was 7lbs. 6oz. at birth and I've just gotten into cloth diapering in the past two weeks. She is 11 weeks old and 11lbs 6oz. The one size Bum Genius and Fuzzi Bunz don't leak but they still look a little ridiculous on her. My husband calls it her sumo wrestler look. The sized thirsties and the prefolds with a cover work a little better at this stage.

my message was cut off... On my 3rd we tried bumGenius, Blueberry, GroBaby, Happy Heinys, and Goodmamas. Other than the GroBaby (which technically fit right away), the Happy Heiny was the first to fit at about 10 lbs (6-8 weeks). The bumGenius and Blueberry starting fitting around 12-13lbs (3 months). The problem is that newborns have super skinny legs and all the diapers gap. I've learned that it really is necessary to buy newborn-sized diapers.

My second was 7 lbs 14 oz at birth and my BG 3.0's didn't fit her till she was almost 4 months old and just 11 lbs. I should mentions my kids are very long and skinny. Baby #3 is only 12 days old so she still has her umbilical cord healing. I got some GroBaby to try on her because they seem to be smaller than the BG's. right now my second is on a Med. setting in the BG's and a Lrg in the Grobaby so I think they will fit sooner.

We haven't been OS AOI fans much, even now that our son is about 25 lbs. and 19 months. But we do love our Tiny Tush OS diapers with any variety of cute covers. I think a sized stash is worth its cost, too, because OS diapers wear out more quickly anyway. Of course, we plan on using our newborn stash on future childr

I got one-size Snap-Ez diapers when he was 3 months old and they fit. I stopped using them once I got enough fuzzi bunz and Flips because they left elastic marks around his belly.

My son was 9 lbs. 2 oz at birth. I didn't try his one size files on until the cord fell off (after about two weeks). They didn't quite fit bit we used them anyway. He was about 12 lbs when the one size really started fitting. We used bum genius and sun baby.

Our baby didn't start using CD until he was about 4 months old and 12 pounds, but by then they were fitting fine.

My baby girl was born 5 weeks ago. I waited til her cord dropped off. Birth weight was 8Ib 6.7 oz. I hate the only 1 rumparooz I have for her- such a bad fit on her body shape- already on the second rise setting. Kawaii fitted her perfect from 2 weeks of age. Happy heiney fitted her from 4 weeks of age. Mommy's touch in applix fits her, but very bulky. Overall the Kawaii's fitted her the soonest, and will last her a long time, as lots of snaps. (minky versions are smaller-I prefer the ultra soft

I didn't start cloth diapering until my son was about 4 months, but am excited to try some of our rumparooz the next time around.

My babies were both 8lb 9 oz. We used prefolds and thirsties when both were little, so I'm not sure when a OS would have fit either. We are currently using mainly GroBaby/Via, but also have a Katydid OS that seems as though it would work well for a wide range of sizes.

We didn't start using cloth until my son was five months old. Hopefully with our next baby we can start much, much earlier!

With my first son we didn't start cloth diapering until 1 year. My second was 7lbs2oz and is now 9lbs and the OS diapers still don't fit. We have BG OS but I can tell they won't fit his skinny legs without even trying.

We didn't start CD until 3 months old on our 3rd child. He was 8 lbs 4 oz at birth and 14 by the time we started. We use Flips and GroVia...love it!

I guess I should just say hi! Since i haven't cloth diapered from birth, sadly. I have cloth diapered from 7 weeks old and up and the OS diapers fit her perfectly.

My babies were 7.14, 9.4, and 7.1 I didn't cloth diaper till my third and I didn't use os until he was about 6 weeks. I have tried bum genius first and those worked ok once his umbilical cord fell off but not great until he was about 9 weeks. Then I tried twinkletoes at 10 weeks and ebber deeber just recently and I love both so far!

My baby boy was 5 lbs 8 oz at birth. We started using sized gdiapers at 8 weeks when he was about 8 pounds. Our BG 3.0s started fitting closer to 11 pounds which was at about 3-4 months. In the beginning we only used gdiapers and Bum Genius

I didn't cloth diaper from birth until my 5th baby & he was 8 lbs 13 oz. He started fitting one-size diapers right away, but we didn't use them until his cord fell off so about 2 weeks old. We mainly used some small cloth diapers a friend of mine made - ittybittybums. We only had BumGenius one size diapers when he was a baby, so that's what we used and they fit great! :)

My daughter was 6.6 at birth, she was 5 weeks early. We were afraid to buy them until she was about 3 months old since she was so little. When we bought them, they fit great, so I would guess maybe around 2 months or so... Just guessing. But I absolutely love one size diapers!!! :) They are very convenient, you don't have to buy bigger sizes ever!!!! We use fuzzibunz OS pocket diapers. hope that helps!!

Hi! My wife and I are going to be cloth diapering on our little one which we are expecting at the end of September...I could never imagine how many options there are but after going to the diaper orientation I think we are ready to make good decisions

Our baby was 8 lbs 3 oz. at birth, and we started him in Bumgenius Elementals OS diapers at 3 and a 1/2 weeks. He was 10 lbs at that time and once I realized he was big enough to try the OS diapers, we already had to snap the waist one snap out from the middle - I had missed our chance at getting the diaper on its smallest possible setting!

Hi! :) I never got to use cloth on my baby when she was a newborn. I wonder if any of them would have worked for her after her cord came off. She was a chunkyy 9 lb 1.5 oz babyyy!

1. My son was 8lb 4oz 2. He started fitting into rumparooz after a couple weeks. Then bum genius around a month. We was still in the 8 lb range during that time. 3. We also tried Happy Heinys and Smartipants. Neither fit my son then or at 4 mos and he's over 16 lb now

Carter was 7lbs 15.8oz (seriously, why couldn't they have just told me 8 lbs...lol!) at birth, and os diapers started to fit him at 12 weeks, he was just 11 lbs then, but we found that sized diapers (applecheeks in particular) fit him wonderfully!!! and not too bulky!! The OS diapers we tried on him were fuzzibunz OS (which definitely fit him the best of all the OS, and the soonest), smartipants, Rumparooz ,BG AIO, Blueberry minky, Kwaii Baby, and the grobaby shells and inserts!

Avery was 8 13 and I would say it would've fit well around 12ish pounds, but we've been using KL0 with Thirsties covers.

My baby was 9.8 at birth. We used Kissaluvs sz 0 and xs Thirsties covers for about 3 weeks. Then BumGenius fit her. GroBaby fit her too.

We have BumGenius, FuzziBunz, Charlie Bananas, and BubuBibi (from Ebay) and none of them fit our newborn (6 lbs 15lbs ) who is now 9 lbs 6 oz at 9 weeks old and about 22 inches long. The disposable inserts for the CBs are ridiculously huge; they look like the post-partum pads they gave *me*! All of the covers are still way too big.

I used smallest size Fuzzibunz diapers and they fit my long skinny baby (8lbs) until he was 6 months old. I used them right away. I did notice my newborn never slept as well as in disposables. He would cry every time he peed which seemed like every 30 minutes, so he never napped long. They might have fit longer, but they were borrowed so I returned them and purchased BG 4.0 one size. I Loved the BG's and he even slept all night in them without waking at 6 months old. I think it is nice to have a couple cute newborn diapers for sure. I live in a warm climate so he was often just in his cute nappy; great for photos too! My wish list would be 12 xs fitted diapers for the first 6 months for my skinny babies.
