HELP!! Baby girl is here and nothing fits...

LO has arrived at a whopping 6lb 10oz and over 20 inches long. She is so incredibly tiny/skinny nothing fits. Any suggestions for a tiny LO? See stash below.

We have had some luck with a bummis super lite with the smallest GMD doubler laid inside or a a blueberry mini delux on the smallest setting stuffed with only a thin doubler. Everything else is too bulky or gappy.

12 XSmall GMD workhorses
24 Small GMD workhorses
6 Small Sbish flats
1 KL0
4 Blueberry mini deluxe
2 Blueberry bamboo inserts
6 Size 1 Capri inserts
9 Small Fab Doublers
2 Newborn Prowrap colors covers
3 Newborn Bummis Super Lite covers
1 Size 1 Capri cover
3 Size 1 Thirsties Duo wraps
6 Flip covers
1 Disana wool soaker
1 XSmall Woollybottoms wool soaker
2 Medium GAD pockets
1 OS Fuzzibunz
1 OS BG 4.0
2 Sbish mini snapless
12 GMD xs/s Doublers
3 newborn Swaddlebees wrap covers
2 small Swaddlebees wrap covers
4 unknown xs Doublers

trifolded baby washcloths/wipes? flour sack towels as flats? Soft regular sized washclothes pinned/snappid? Also, if you have amazon prime, osocozy preemie pfs are like 13$ for a doz...tiny thin and great as doublers later...

Re: HELP!! Baby girl is here and nothing fits...

We used osocozy better fit infant prefolds (they are shorter than regular pfs) tri-folded in thirsties duos on the smallest setting when DD was about 3 weeks (she was under 7 lbs and 20" at that point, so close to your DD's size now).

Congrats on your new little one!!

I'd honestly either use washcloths that you already have or wait it out until the cord falls off. Once the cord comes off, even at under 7lbs, more should fit.

I had a dozen xs bamboo prefolds from Nicki's, they are 3x6x3. They are thin and smaller than the DR newborn prefolds I had. They barely fit at birth; I only used them for a week. They are really soft though.

I agree with a pp; once the cord falls off a lot more will work. Good luck and congrats!
