This is very good advice!

my cloth/wool babies were 7lbs 11oz, 9lbs 2oz, 8lbs 9oz.
In newborn woolies for about 10days-2weeks, needed the nb rise for cord drying. And then into nb/smalls for 2 months. They were in smalls until about 5 months old. HTH

Current baby was 8 lbs and we are outgrowing the true nb Woolies as we approach 1 month. Luckily, I made some nb+ sized ones, too, but now I need more footies!

Re: How long does NB wool fit?

A true newborn size worked for about 3 weeks and then major spurts happened and I had very few smalls and invested in making mostly mediums with short inseams that I would add to as they grew.

Dd2 was 8.8 lbs at birth and barely fit true nb size for a couple of weeks. Dd3 I didn't buy almost any true nb size diapers or wool and ended up having to run out and buy some because she was only 7 lbs. She's 4 weeks old and still in nb size.
