41+3 8lb 3oz
43+1 7lb 6oz
42+1 6lb 13oz

Katie was in size 0s and XSs for months. If you are expecting a bigger baby I would get maybe 3/4 XS (assuming you will still be using the bimbles and kissaluvs, if not you'll need to replace those too) and at least 6/7 more smalls, especially seeing as I doubt you'll be able to use the DnFs for quite a while as they are considerably larger than other smalls.



I plan on having the bimbles/kissaluvs as emergency nappies. So maybe i do need to save up for more :roll: :roll:

The onesized ones like BG's might fit more like smalls on the lowest setting? or not... I am so clueless!

DS1 - came naturally, no reason but went pre term 9x prior to his final exit!
DS2 - premature leak of membranes at 30weeks and induced when they found he was on empty..
DS3 - Gestational Diabeties, induction when sugars went mental

I'd say get more smalls if anything, and use those kissaluvs and bimbles if needed and you'd be fine.

I think I have enough xs/smalls to get through to start with. I've had:
7lb at 41 weeks
8lb 5oz at 40 weeks

Natalie dropped to 6lb 8oz and grew soooo slowly she took 14 weeks to hit 10lbs and we didn't start cloth til she was 3 months.
Ryan never lots and gained fairly quickly, but still fit in small bg aios til 16 weeks (just)

both of mine are long and thin though so narrow nappies last a bit longer. Baby is measuring the same- spot on but with a long femur! so should be similar.

I guess you'd get away with using the onesizes on the smallest setting. Personally I can't stand huge onesize nappies on teeny babies :oops: so have absolutely no experience of using them other than on the medium and large settings.

i think if you're expecting big babies, then you have more than enough xs's. ds was 8lb8oz at term, so i didn't buy any xs's at all for next pregnancy. and i'm glad i didn't get any as dd came out 9lb4oz at a week over, so i doubt she'd have fitted in any xs's.

if i manage to have another, i'll be skipping the xs's again.

Id say you need more. Just on the thought that if you didnt get round to washing when planned you arent running out of nappies :wink:

Id get a few diddys if i were you, cheap, good reviews and are supposed to fit from 4lbs something so even if you have a tiddler they should fit and will fit normal and larger sized newborns too :wink: We have 4 or 5 i think (mix of nippa and aplix). Other than that, maybe a few teenyfits (id perhaps hold off and wait for some of us ahead of you to list some teeny fluff :wink: )

You could always get a few newborn prefolds to boost your newborn stash (swaddlebees do a pack for about £12 i think - babykind) :wink:
