Re: Alva Newborn: SNAPS OR VELCRO?

So I googled it and found some mama advising velcro as they adjust better. i don't love velcro but I followed the advice. I did get a few snaps though.

Anyone know if these are similar in size to fuzzibuns small? They are rated 7-18 lbs and the alva apparently are 7-15. Anyone have both and can take pics so I don't have to wait 2 weeks to see? LOL

So did I do the right thing? I just bought 7, (2 snaps, 5 velcro) and 40 of those bamboo inserts everyone is always raving about.

Velcro. The snap ones don't fit until they get bigger.

But the velcro ones fit actual newborns? Mine so far have been in the 8.5 lb range...

Re: Alva Newborn: SNAPS OR VELCRO?

I saw some pictures of them and they seem to fit newborns, but be a little bulky. I really liked the pictured that I saw of the velcro ones. The person had folded down the back of the diaper to adjust the rise. I ended up going with velcro because of how easy it looked to make the adjustments. I love snaps for older kids, but babies are so tiny that I was afraid to go with snaps.

I've not used Alva on a nb, but in general I like velcro for nb's and snaps once they get older.

Re: Alva Newborn: SNAPS OR VELCRO?

I'm stocking up on a few different newborn diapers because I figure certain ones will fit better than others and I wont know until baby gets here. They also grow and change so fast, that it's really hard to know. I have a dozen on the way and they are snaps. I thought about going with velcro for the adjustability (NBs are the only ones I will consider for velcro), but figured we'll just use them when they fit properly and use other things for the tiny stage. Yes I know a newborn diaper should fit a newborn but they grow out of them in weeks and I'd rather have a 10-20 pound diaper range instead of a 7-12 pound range.

I probably say this because my baby was 10 and a half pounds at 2 weeks, and we outgrew several diapers in the first week. Maybe I'd feel differently if I had a tiny baby.

Re: Alva Newborn: SNAPS OR VELCRO?

I have some velcro ones and I love them. I think they will allow them to fit longer than the snaps since soon she'd have a snap stud digging into her hip. But with the velcro I can use it all the way to the end. And velcro is just so nice with newborns anyway.
