Ds1 was 8-8 @ 40&4
Ds2 was 8-10 @ 41&1
They were both 20.5 inches long too
So pretty much identical ds2 wore NB cloth for 10 days before he outgrew the absorbency. He fit into 4.0's at that point too. Next time i wouldn't bother with a NB stash because we got so little use out of it.

DD1 was 41 weeks and 7lbs 2oz

DD2 was 40+2 and 9lbs 8oz

Both wore newborn cloth. My first a little longer than my second but my first gained faster than my second. They weighed the same at their 4 month appointments.
