Gah! How old was your baby at 15lbs?

Hello All!

I have the chance to get a good deal on some prefolds but have no idea which to get.

I'm on a tight budget so I want to make sure I buy proper sizes.

How old was your baby when they hit 15 pounds? The infant sized is listed for 7-15lbs and the regular for 15-30lbs.

Trying to decide how many infant sizes I should buy. I know all babies are different but I think getting age ideas may help

Thank you Mamas!

My first was 4.5 months before he hit 15lbs. My 2nd was under 3 months when he hit it!

My DD hit 15 about 9 months, but she is a peanut. She just hit 20 at 17 months DS on the other hand hit 15 lbs at 2 months. Every baby is different.

DS was around 4 mo, but my DD is almost 5 mo and only about 13 lbs. My babies are on the smaller side, though (between 6-7 lbs at birth and consistently in the 10th-25th %ile). DD is still comfortably wearing infant-sized prefolds bikini-twisted!
