    Default Newborn diapers

    Trying to get my hands on newborn diapers that would fit my tiny babies is near impossible! I am trying to start building up my stash, I won't even be getting pregnant until next year, at least that is the plan. But seriously, my babies are like 5lb babies and most newborn diapers don't fit babies that small. I found a lady that makes them that small and I found a pattern to make my own, but man this is a pain! If I go through the lady it will be about $90 for 10 diapers!!! Ughh, maybe I will just stick with trying to make my own stash. :-/ Especially since I have one of her diapers to make my pattern from anyway.

    We used NB GMD prefolds and extra small thirsties covers. Sized prefolds work well on even tiny babies and aren't very expensive.

    Premie prefolds! I even used them for a few days and my girl was 7 lbs, 12 oz at birth!

    I plan on the prefolds because I KNOW they can be small enough. lol. But it is the pocket diapers and covers that I am having a hard time finding small enough.

    My guy was 6lbs 7oz and didn't fit into the lil joeys even for a few days. There is a brand or wahm called nanabottoms that is pretty tight around the legs if you are looking for an AIO. I didn't use any NB pockets. I did use the orange edge prefolds with bummis whisper wraps, which were big at first. But after the first 2 weeks or so he grew into all his NB diapers and they fit until about 8 weeks, some fit longer like 10 weeks.

    It is easier to go with perfolds, I found that AIO were too bulky on my DS as a newborn.
