Xs or S fb on a nb
I've been seeing all the sqiushy babies in xs fb! Does anyone NOT like these? How long do they fit? Has anyone went straight to smalls with a 8lb baby? Pictures are of course welcome!!

I think you could go either way with these and maybe skip to small, but there's a big difference in sizing. XS would probably fit best at first and small might be a little large as their min. is 7 lbs (and I think it fits better a little bigger), but it is doable. It also depends how fast your baby grows- I think xs would be good for a few months.

I think I'd go with XS, I had smalls and an 8 pound baby but they seemed huge....I didn't use them until 9-10 pounds and they were a bit big then. We used them until 16-17 pounds.

I really really wanted to like them but we had horrible leg gaps with them and so they always leaked :( My Dd was 7lbs 6oz at birth and had decently chunky thighs for a newborn too. We still had leg gaps even when she was 5 weeks and over 9lbs so I sold them. I have no idea when we would have stopped getting gaps. They are super cute though. I see everyone with them on their newborn and wonder if maybe ours were defective or something. I got them new from amazon.
Here is my DD at around 4.5 weeks old in an xs:

I liked them! The XS fit and performed great on my 8 lb 6 oz babe. The only reason I didn't keep them was because I didn't like stuffing diapers in general, and the FuzziBunz in particular because the inner is "grippy" and trickier to stuff. :)

Definitely prefered the XS on my 8lb 5oz newbie. He didn't go into the smalls until he was about 3 months (and I was so sad, I LOVED my XS).

XS for sure. I am JUST now getting a good fit with S on DD, and she is 3 1/2 months and 12 pounds.

It depends on how quickly they grow. My little guy was 8'13 & smalls were a bit big for 2 weeks but the XS was too small from day one. He also hit 12 lbs by 3 weeks & kept growing.

I LOVED XS, they fit well until about 12 lbs which was 2 months for us.
