How long do NB Alvas fit?

I'm expecting a 6 or 7 lb baby and have a huge newborn stash already, but LO will be starting daycare at around 12 weeks old and I need easy daycare dipes. I have a daycare stash of BG 4.0s, Softbums Omnis, and TotsBots, but I'm wondering if all the OS dipes will still be too big at 12 weeks.

DD was about 12 or 13 lbs at 12 weeks. Will NB Alvas fit a 12/13-lb baby? What about OS dipes?

Re: How long do NB Alvas fit?

Ds is 2.5 months and ~14 lbs, 25 inches. My NB alvas still fit him on the middle rise setting. I wouldn't be surprised if they fit to 18 lb+ I also have Diaper safari pockets, which I believe are very similar to regular Alvas, and they fit him reasonably well on the smallest rise setting. I would definitely say that the NB size is a good investment though.

DD is 8 weeks and at least 11 lbs, and she's still on the smallest rise setting.
