Sized diapers for large newborn

Hi ladies!

My first baby was born large - 10lb, 6oz, and was long and chunky. We had rented a newborn trial, and wore BGXS for about 2 or so weeks, then outgrew them, but I sure loved them!

For my next baby I have a few BGXS, a few simplex, and a few prefolds and covers. I much prefer AIO's, so I was wondering if there were any recommendations for sized diapers that would fit larger newborns?

I know simplex NB goes up to about 16 lbs, and I saw bottom bumpers small has a good range. Any other recommendations?

I've heard Simplex last the longest, although I don't have experience with them...Lil Joeys are tiny, BumGenius XS probably won't last long either...

I have Nb simplex and small bottombumpers but haven't used them yet....I am hoping they last as long as their weight limit suggests. They are both so stinkin cute and I love the natural fibers.

Oooh I forgot about the duos! I've heard people really like the covers - do you use the AIOs?

Re: Sized diapers for large newborn

Alva newborn pocket diapers would definitely fit a big baby. I can squeeze one on my 30lb toddler haha. I know you prefer AIOs, but these are almost as easy and like 1/3 or less of the price.

Could you just do small dipes instead of NB ones? BG smalls fit my daughter when she was 9-10 lbs (end of her 2nd month). Or are you concerned about the rise for letting the stump heal?

I'm definitely interested in small sized diapers too! My intention in starting this thread was sort of geared toward that - since I know many true newborn diapers wouldn't fit long on a big newborn. One sized diapers are great, but for the newborn stage I really like a more "custom" fit, even if my babe would need a small rather than newborn. So BG smalls are good?


And in response to the Alva's - how easy are they to stuff? While pockets aren't my favorite I have BG pockets that I don't mind stuffing since they are easy. On the other hand, Fuzzibuns always felt more difficult to stuff (to me).
