Sunbabies on newborns

I am about to do a Sunbaby order for my little girl on the way, and I can't decide between 1s and 2s! I didn't use Sunbabies until my son was already 18 months, and that was before she came out with the new sizes.

I have a few size 1 (or the original size if there's a difference) Sunbabies which are getting snug on my almost-2-year-old boy. He's always been big, whereas my other daughter was tiny to start (7lbs) and stayed small. She PTed in FB mediums without being anywhere near outgrowing them.

What I am really needing is to find someone who has used Sunbabies, size 1 or preferably 2, on their infants, to weigh in on how they fit. Most of the Sunbaby moms I know have older babies and so the fact that size 2 fits is kind of a given. I just don't want to end up with diapers that don't fit until my daughter is 2-3 months old.

Re: Sunbabies on newborns

I started using my Sunbabies on our daughter when she was about 1 month old I think. Maybe closer to 6 weeks? I'd say she was around 9 lbs. They fit great. I think they probably would have fit sooner if I had tried them, but we were gifted a huge box of sposies so we used those until they ran out. I ordered them in July 2011 so there was only one size. Sunpei says that is the same as size 1.

Re: Sunbabies on newborns

I didn't start using the Sunbabies with my daughter until she was a couple months old. I never used the smallest size setting though and they look like they go pretty small. I'm pregnant and wondering how soon I will be able to use these, too.

Anyone with pictures? I would love to see some too.

Re: Sunbabies on newborns

Ok, I went and did some research and found these threads that have some pictures of little ones in the sunbaby's. They aren't itty bitty but I think you can get kind of an idea how they'd fit.

Re: Sunbabies on newborns

Found some that have some pictures of an itty bitty in them. These are the 4.0s, and I've heard the 3.0 fit even smaller.

I tried the 4.0's on my newborn. He was 7lbs 10oz and I did not like the fit at all. I could not get them snug on his little skinny legs and if I added more inserts, it was too bulky. I didn't like the fit until closer to 6wks or so.

Re: Sunbabies on newborns

I just ordered 6 of the size 2 sunbabies and noticed each one fits differently. Each one is snapped to a different configuration. So there seems to be some variation.

Ours is a little older... 10 months and tall/skinny at 16lbs and 29 inches. The size 2 is at the smallest or slightly larger setting on each one and they fit well (slightly bulky). I think they would have fit her fine starting around 6 months and possibly younger.
