When did your baby outgrow Lil Joeys?

How big were your babies when they outgrew Lil Joeys?

I didn't expect them to last long so I only had 6, now I wish I had more because my youngest who will be 8wks on Tues still fits, they are probably the best, fit, nice and trim and he still has a ways to go before they don't fit! He's 10lbs now

I had some Lil' Joeys for DS#2, and they only fit him to about 9-10ish lbs. They say up to 12 lbs, but honestly, they only worked for us until about 9 lbs. At that point, they were becomming snug, and hard to snap (even on the biggest setting.)

Don't let this steer you away from Lil' Joeys, though! Some people love/swear by them! The next newbie, we're sticking with BG AIOs.

Yeah I really love the Lil Joeys, there are the top and bottom row of snaps and he wears them on the tightest setting on the top row. I think my kids have really narrow hips and butts compared to others though, my 3rd son potty trained while still wearing size small fuzzi bunz and he was almost 3.

I think it definitely depends on the body type! My LO was/is a chunker. Solid around the waist and chunky thighs, almost instantly!

I agree, it depends on the body type. My DD has narrow hips and I snap on the outter snaps on the 1st row. I'm not sure it will last to 12 lbs though since bigger baby's are bigger wetters and the lil' joeys seem to get full fast.

My ds outgrew them around 2 weeks and 9lbs. They still fit in the waist but he outgrew the rise, his little crack was showing .

My DD is 7 weeks but they aren't absorbent enough so we don't use them anymore.
