Re: Does anyone have pics of a 8+lb newborn baby in a BG 4.0 for size reference?

DD was 8lb 7oz and she wore and i went with Thirstis duo size 1 and HH mini OS and blueberry mini OS. They fit way better IMO than the BG OS. I don't like big bulky diapers on a NB. Look silly. She didn't really start wearing the OS till last week at 11lbs. I went from NB to OS diapers. I skipped all other sized diapers and very glad I did.

She also wore GMD NB prefolds and nb prowrap covers for the first 6 weeks. We got plenty of use out of the NB diapers. I bought all off FSOT so was able to diaper her cheaply and then sell off.

She is 8lbs in these pics
HH mini OS


GMD NB prefold


Size small AIO (fits the same as Nana's bottom AIO size small)


Here is a BG OS at 11lbs

No pics, but my dd1 had super skinny legs and didn't fit well in the 4.0s till she was way older (7 lb 2 oz at birth). With her I should have invested in size small diapers, she took forever to really fit into an OS diaper. DD2 (7 lb 4 oz at birth) on the other hand has nice meaty thighs and would have fit in the 4.0s pretty quickly, but her cord didn't fall off for 3 weeks. She went straight from NB to OS.

I really liked Diaper Rite nb prefolds and Thirsties Duo size 1 covers for the first few weeks, they fit under the cord and they fit under her clothes. I do think they are worth it.

I don't have pics (I was so busy trying to figure out what I was doing ) but I really like sized things... I'm ok with one size covers but didn't actually like them until maybe around 15 lbs. My 2 started the same size and grew very differently- but still would have wanted newborn and small for both, especially the one who wasn't CDed and grew at a normal rate-- but just my preference.

I used a bunch of 4.0s at night from 2-3 months and they fit ok by then and I could super stuff them.

My daughter was born at 8lbs 9oz. She's probably 7-10 days old here, so probably almost 9lbs.

BG XS

I looked for a pic but couldn't find any. I really like BG NB on DD. She was 8lb 7oz at birth got down to 7lb 15oz, They fit for about 6-8 weeks.

I would check FSOT. The don't get used long so you can get some good deals.
