Newborn nappies

Postby katherinem » Wed Oct 29, 2008 10:27 am

Right, so I think I'll be getting thirsties but my question is do you think I'll get away without getting the xsmall size?

My last dd was 10lbs, so I don't want to go spending money on nappies that only go upto 12lbs. The small nappy is 12lbs - 18lbs, do you think it would fit a 10lber?

I'll be getting some squares aswell, so wouldn't be stuck if I had a tiddler (but I'm doubting that'll happen). Thanks x

I found you can do up big nappies to make them smaller, so personally go for the size which will get the most wear!

Agree with Annette. I'd go for the smalls instead of the x-small. I found x-small to be teeny tiny.

I do agree with the girls, but I do suggest getting a couple of flat nappies or something equally adjustable just in case, terry squares are good as they are cheap and can be used for stuffing pockets later on!

I like you expected my LO to be relatively big as Jak was 8lb9.5 and was 10lb by 2 weeks, and having heard subsequent babies get bigger I want not expecting Summer to be 7lb8, and has only just reached 10lb at 3 months, was glad to have some bamboo squares, and the surprising one, bumgenius, they were an absolutely fantastic fit from birth!

If you are using a nippa then I think you can get away with bigger nappies a bit. It does seem the right thing to do if you are expecting another big baby and squares are a good in between as they can be used for allsorts afterwards.

I would say that if you look about you may be able to pick up some small nappies very cheaply but then you'd be in competition with me LOL!!!

ETA - read you post properly now LOL!!! I have a large thirsties and I found it massive on the sizing scale but its the only one I had and can't comment on going through the weight range.

I've found thirsties wraps fit from way below the weight range on our babies becuase they have crossover tabs, skinny waists and huge night nappies are hard to get covered, not tried their nappies but if they have crossover tabs they might be really flexible, go for a bigger size isay

XS nappies are so adorable, i would probably get a couple next time just because theyre so cute! but you're right, theres not much point spending alot of money on them if they only last a few weeks. if you can get some preloved then it wouldnt be as bad. :D xx
