Special, or "best" folds for Premie PF

OK, so I have about 3.5 weeks till little squirt is here. I am really begining to obsess over little things. I have NEVER CDed a new born before. I plan to use sposies till the miconium is gone then XS ME sandies and premie or infant PF which ever fit best.

My question is what is the best fold for a newborn? Everyone says that premies are so small and hard to snappi. I am just wondering what fold would be best. Thhis baby is estimated at about 7.5-8lbs per the OB. My 1st son was 7lbs 11 oz 21 inches long. he was very long and skinny

I will be EBF

thanks

Shannon

We used the snappi'd angel wing fold with preemies with no problem.

FWIW we had NO staining from meconium, it's that BF poo that'll set you back.

BTW: My little man was 7lb 8 oz at birth.

Ok, So I admitt it, I am scared to CD those 1st couple of days or so when every thing is going on. I MAY surprize myself though we will see.

Since it was brought up, is there a good way/majic cure for BF poo stain removal? should I just get a bunch of liners? disposable, fleece whatever.
