Trimmest covers for tiny newborns?

I love my fxxs fitteds on our 2wk old, under 6lbs little girl, but they are too big under the bummis original we have, and the bummis super brite we have is just so darn bulky.

My baby has tiny little chicken legs and is less than 6lbs. So what recommendations are there for a TRIM over for a chicken-legged, tiny baby?? LoL!

The bummi orginal would be my suggestion but yea most fitted wont fit under next would be a preemie wool or fleece type soaker I didn't find any other cover that fit the super thin chicken legged period.

Bummis Super Lites are a bit smaller than Super Brites.

I like Bummis Whisper Pants! Super simple, inexpensive, and they smush down under clothing so the only bulk is from the diaper its self!

I love preemie proraps. They worked great on my dd when she first came home and had chicken legs and weighed a little over 6 lbs.

Re: Trimmest covers for tiny newborns?

preemie proraps were gigantic on my chicken legged 5lber
gaps of the preemie prorap on the tightest possible setting


plus the whole thing was huge

litewrap preemies were okay the but bulky though my goodness the looked TINY off of baby and the bummi pullons were deffiently too big..

Re: Trimmest covers for tiny newborns?

thanks for the suggestions! forgot we have proraps and preemie litewraps- too big, as well.

I don't know a single thing about longies or soakers. never used either. I'm scared of wool Any links to info about longies and soakers and where to buy inexpensive ones?

thanks!
