Your favorite preemie diaper?

My friend is in the hospital on bed rest, 34 weeks along. She'll most likely have her baby next week. I've tried the Je'Mapelle Bebe pattern and the Little Comet Tails XXS Starter pattern. But I haven't seen them on a baby yet. what did you cd your preemie in?

I never CD with my preemies but these are sooo adorable, I so wish I had them back then and that I was CDing them when they were that teeny

I didn't CD mine, either. He was in SCN and the nurses used the sposies, not like I was there for every change anyway. The hossy probably wouldn't have considered them sanitary enough, I don't know.

When he came home, I used nb prefolds and they fit okay.

Re: Your favorite preemie diaper?

I have a few preemie diapers when my twins were born. I liked Very Baby newborn fitteds, Patooshie Pants Preemie fitteds (but I don't think she is in biz anymore), pre-fitteds from infant prefolds, preemie PF's, and my ULTIMATE FAVE were Trimsies fitteds with an additional snap placement for the thigh (so 5 sets instead of 4). They fit great from 6lb to 14ish. I also had a HH mini, but we didn't like pockets. The fit was great for small babies. Then for small covers, I had a bummis super brite XS that was TINY, but I ultimately loved wool for this age- Thirsties XS were small enough too becuase of the leg gussets!

ETA: Baby was around 5-6 lbs in these pics, and 4lbs in the super brite pic.
Small Trimsies w/ extra thigh snap

Patooshie Pants Preemie

SuperBrite over a preemie PF

XS Thirstie over an infant prefold, snappi'd

Leg gap on a BG xs (HATED THESE!)

And for fun- a BG Organic...

Just make sure the fit is good in the legs. Preemies have skinny legs.

Lil Joeys are good, and Thirsties XS, and my fav was/still is Bumkins XS.

Swaddlebees XS did NOT work at all, the legs are way to loose for a skinny baby.

Re: Your favorite preemie diaper?

I didnt CD my preemie until she was about 8 weeks old, She was in hospital for 22 days, then at home for first little while I used preemie disposibles (didnt have many tiny cloth diapers), and I was ill so wasnt able to wash diapers in the beginning. I had some tiny wahm pocket diapers and AIO's that I used, and some prefolds with a snappi and XS thirsties cover, prefolds were not my favorite. Sorry not much help. Best wishes!

Re: Your favorite preemie diaper?

ds came home at 4lbs. he wore a bunch of fitteds i made from the start. bg bamboo fit at 5lbs. nanas bottoms preemies fit at 5lbs. swaddlebees fit at 6.5lbs. bg aios fit at 7lbs. he is almost 11lbs(5.5 months) and all still fit lol but he has outgrown the rise on most of them. if you have ?s about a specific diaper you can ask. the thighs are the problem area. ds had like 3" thighs

We didn't CD until she hit 7 1/2 pounds..before then, they went down to her knees We are using GMD orange edge PF, and xs thirsties covers (note, haven't had a leak yet with the thirsties! ) I only used pockets before this, but i am now in love with prefolds!!!

Re: Your favorite preemie diaper?

The only diapers that worked for us were lil joeys. No leg gaping at all which meant no EBF blowouts!
