When do babies generally slim down?

Getting worried that OS diapers are going to quickly become outgrown on my chunky 5 month old. THANKS!

My little guy gained until about nine months and plateaued there for a long time. Matter of fact, I don't think he's gained but a few pounds since then and has slimmed out ever since and is now a skinny toddler.

My DD wore the same setting one size diapers at 4 months and now at 23 months.

She weighed 20lbs at 6 months and now about 27-28lbs at 23 months. So they slim down, for us it's been when they start crawling.

Don't worry, they'll still fit! When my son was 5 month old he was wearing OS diapers, they were on the largest setting (BG 3.0s) and he is still wearing them at 2 1/2 yrs old! He slimmed down around a year when he started walking. I think babies' bellies are just so round when they're young (9 months and down...) that the largest setting seems to fit best for some kids.

usually, they'll hit a plateau near the time they walk...even my big ole boy, did, but he plateau-ed at 33lbs...from 1 year until 2ish.... My girls paused at 15/20 lbs...

Re: When do babies generally slim down?

Mommy of a long waisted big boy here with a nice tushie, and we were only able to use OS (Wahmies, and Mommy's Touch) until 5 months. We have found sized works better. He's 13 months now, and just starting to slim up, but we still need to move to Toddler sizes - 35 lbs and up - as all the Large sized and OS are now too short in the rise for him. Although he is only 31 lbs at this point. So just a warning, if you are dealing with a big baby that also has a long rise and ample tushie, expect to size up every couple of months that first year. If you've got an average rise & bum, no worries, keep those OS dipes, as they will fit again.
