Best AIO for petite newborn?

Hi - I'm buying a stash for my little girl in June and am looking for recs on AIOs that will fit a 6-7 lb newborn well. With DS we used diaper service prefolds as a newborn and so I never had to worry about this! But MIL will be helping with the new LO and I'd like something easy for her to change and that is convenient for out and about.

I've been looking at BG XS, lil joey, swaddlebee simplex, imagine newborn, grovia. Would love Velcro and something that will fit until my OS pockets work. DS was 6 lb 12 oz at birth and we're expecting his sister to be similarly sized.

Thanks!

Tots Bots TiniFits fit my babies really well when they were that size. GroVia also fit beautifully when they were that small, but they outgrew the absorbency pretty quickly.

My little girl was 6lb10oz at birth. For the first week the lil joeys fit her the best. After that we had leaks and red marks on her thighs. then my swaddlebees simplexes became the favorite. I also just got a stash of imagine AIO's to replace the spots my lil joeys left behind.

I'd do Imagine NB and Nana's Bottoms NB AIOs on Hyena Cart.

Thanks! The imagine AIO are attractively priced, I just haven't seen many reviews. I just bought some imagine xs prefolds and bamboo fitteds, guess I should the AIOs to the mix ...

Is there a fit difference between the Velcro and snap imagines'

The snaps have a cord snap down and velcros don't. I think that's all.

You may try Nana's bottoms as well as Tots Bots. They both seem to fit littles well.

My newborn is 3 weeks old, and I have really been liking the Lil Joeys and THX, especially that first week. Most velcro is pretty scratchy and her skin was so fragile at first.

Mine is 2 weeks right now - dropped to 6lbs 9oz. We love our BG 3.0 for NB and Lil' Joeys.
