Which wool for a (smallerish) newborn?

Are there any wool covers that will fit a 6-7 lb newborn? I bought a hybrid woollybottoms xs today, but even as tiny as it is, I don't think there's much of a chance of it fitting her for the first few weeks. I've also been looking at the interlock woollybottoms and Sbish longies and covers-so if anyone knows how these would fit, that'd be helpful too.

Any other suggestions for wool for a newborn? Spam me!

ETA: If anyone has any photos of their newborns in a woollybottoms or other wool covers and their approx weight at the time, that would be super helpful-TIA!

I loved Loveybums soakers with my 6lb 12oz. newborn. Truly, if i had to use only one cover it would be these, with the LB wraps as a second choice. Best of all, they stretch a lot and we're just now outgrowing them at almost 4 months old!

What kind of diaper(s) are you using under them?

Once my boy started part-time daycare, I started using Thirsties Duo Wrap covers for daycare days. I use wool at home, but don't trust the daycare staff with wool.

If you felt a Disana soaker and folder over the rise they usually work well on littles.

I second Loveybums. I do like my Disana but the LB fit under newborn clothes.
