Best fit for 6-7 lb newborn

I decided to start a second thread for this question. We are expecting baby #2. Baby #1 was 6 lbs 14 oz - exactly the same size as my husband when he was born. All of my MIL's babies were under 7 lbs. Assuming my babies take after his side of the family I'm wondering what the best diapers are for that size.

I'm leaning towards GMD workhorses and wool, but I'd like to have a variety. Oh and I'd loooove to see pics! Thanks!

Nope! The romper is wool and works as clothing and cover :-)

My dd was 6 lbs 10 oz. lil joeys fit great! Until she started peeing through them. At 8 1/2 lbs nb alvas are still a little loose on her legs. Thirsties duo and xs fit great as does the blueberry mini.

At what age/size did she start to pee through the lil joeys? I just checked them out again and they seem a little pricey to me.

Re: Best fit for 6-7 lb newborn

DD#2 was born weighing 5 lbs. 13 oz. and nothing fit yet (she was early and I was not expecting such a tiny peanut). After a case of newborn disposables she fit into newborn prefolds trifolded in Bummis NB and Thirsties XS diaper covers. That setup worked until she finally fit into Flip covers, which was around 12 lbs. (Now she's in capri-size prefolds trifolded in Flip covers, on the smallest setting.)

Dd was 8lbs 6 oz and little joeys never fit her.

The super brite bummis cover fit well over a trifolded orange edge GMD prefold.

Also the fuzi buns extra small fit her in the middle setting so it would have fit a smaller baby
