Hmm, I wonder what ones will actually fit from birth then. I'm guessing the Teenyfits (5 of those), the XS Sandys (3 of those), possibly the small BG AIO? The Swaddlebees (2), the Hollow Oak, and probably the LHC?

I'm guessing everything else will be too big at first? I'm pretty sure the small Sandys will be. The Totsbots size 1s look a bit big too but thinking maybe I can nippa them at first? (They are aplix but never mind). Could maybe do that with the LLs too? Oh and obviously I've got the terry squares, only 4 of them though.

The diddy diapers and the bimbles will fit well from birth, and you've got a couple of other xs fitted in there so you should be ok. Lots of people recommend using muslins when theyre tiny and you can get those pretty cheap from Tesco etc.

You might need some nb/xs wraps though?

How big are you expecting bump to be?

I've nippa'd everything (Liam's not quite 7lbs yet but will be soon!) I would say that aplix tots bots are the least good fit of all (the aplix really makes it enormous at the front when I fold it over and the bit between the legs is sooooo wide!) but the small sandies, folded over and nippa'd are fabulous (the bit folded down at the front offers more absorbancy for a boy as well). Little lambs fit reasonably well though as they're smaller in the 'crotch' area than tots bots, but there's still the aplix issue.

I didn't buy any xs nappies though, so I've just been making due with small nappies and xs wraps and it seems to be working fine. All that to say, if you run out of xs nappies one day, just get your nippa out and it'll work great.

Ah yes forgot about the Diddys and the Bimbles. I've got quite a few muslins lying around somewhere too!

Hmm not got any XS wraps. I have Small Motherease wraps as the weight range for the XS seemed to be the same? Then the Little Lambs, Pumpkin Pants etc are all the smallest size available.

Hmm well Lilly was 7lb 0.5oz, though I'm sure I'm a bit bigger this time! I am thinking somewhere between 7lb and 8lb (please god no bigger than that, LOL)
