Can I see pics of newborns in Duo Diapers and Wraps?

I just got some size 1 Thirsties Duo Diapers and a Duo Wrap for baby due in March and I was wondering how well these fit on a brand new baby. I'd love to see pics if anyone has them. Can you tell me how much your LO weighs in the photo as well?

Also, the Duo inserts that snap together say they can be used in the Diapers and the Wraps, but I'm wondering which side is supposed to touch baby's skin if used in the Wrap. It looks like one side is MF and I know that can't touch baby directly. Thanks for your help!

The Duo cover size 1 didn't go under the cord, so I didn't use it for the first 3 weeks - but after that, it's great! My 2nd favorite cover next to Bummis SWW for that stage. DS is 6 weeks old and a little over 9 pounds now. Do you want a pic or is that too old/big?

This is DD Elan just under 9lbs here. She was born weighing 9 lbs.


These are not the best covers for a newborn IMO. Grab you come newborn covers! You will only need them for the week or so that the umbilical stump will be there. You won't regret it! The OS cover options are still too high in the rise for a newborn and too big in the legs. In this picture, the cover is covering a good portion of her thighs! They were just too big! These fit her best once she hit about 10lbs which didn't take long for her. They lasted through til she was about 13ish lbs. I don't think it's right to go by weight alone when deciding on newborn diapers. DD was a big girl but she still had a short rise cuz of the cord and a narrow crotch.

Thanks! I'd still like to see them on your 6 week old.

DD3 at 2 days old, about 6lbs 14 oz:


Over this:


At about 5 days a bummis whisper wrap and superbright to compare:



Thirsties Duo wrap at about 1 month old, over a small infant prefold.

I stopped using them shortly after, as they were getting too small.

Is that a NB or SM Super Whisper Wrap?

This is a NB wrap. It was getting too small when she was about 2 weeks old. I loved the fit though. I found it worth having the nb size wraps.
