Anyone have pics of a 8-14lb baby in a BG Newborn and BG 4.0 for comparing

I am trying to decide if I should spend the $ on newborn diapers or just try to go straight to the One-Size BG 4.0s. Our last baby was 8lbs 3oz and and gained quickly and this one will prob be around there. I really don't want bulk on my newborn so am really thinking I would like some BG Newborn diapers but want to know if they can fit to 13 or 14lbs......

So...I think it would really help and I would love to see some pics or hear experiences of the bg newborn dipes on 10/11/12/13/14lb babies to see if they will fit that long because I would ultimately like to start the OS BG 4.0s at the 14ish lb range(although dont know if possible). I have read that a lot of ppl have to stop using the BG newborns because of absorbancy issues not because of outgrowing them size wise but couldn't laying a little newborn bamboo terry doubler or something in the diaper fix that issue?!! Thoughts?!!

Any more pics would really be appreciated )

LO was not quite 8 lbs yet in this pic, and I think it was only stuffed with the newborn insert. She was about 10 days old, I think, and her cord had fallen off about a week before.

Those pics are awesome wow but that BG 4.0 looks pretty big on her newborn :-/ hmm...and if that "BG deluxe aio" that he is in in the pic is a BG newborn it looks kind of big! It must be a BG aio sized small or something?? Yeah it's a small cause it fits from 8-16 lbs not 6-12 like the newborn aio.

I think I have a picture of my 9 lb baby wearing an elemental... which basically fits the same. Let me dig it out from the depths of photobucket.

^ Same baby a week later at 10 lbs. (In an easy fit, just to give you an idea size wise).

Here is DS2 in a BG Freetime at about 8lbs. He was born 9lbs 2oz and 22.5 in and went down to 8lbs 3oz with super skinny legs.

I don't have a picture, but BG 4.0 did not fit my daughter well until 10 pounds or about 4 weeks. She was 8lb 6 oz when born. Her RaR os pockets fit at about 2 weeks right around when she was back at her birthweight.
