Re: Does anyone really go birth to potty in one size?

The OS dipes were too big on DD until she was around 3 months, but then most of them were too small around 7 months! Of course she was way chunkier than most babies. I just sold the ones I didn't like, and saved the ones I liked, packed them away and reminded myself I can use them on the next baby.
We switched to sized Happy Heiny's, because they are the largest sized pocket diapers I could find. She does still fit into BumGenius 4.0s, so I'm happy those OS dipes weren't a waste

I liked your answer the best. I want to try flats on a nb if we ever get another one. But then I also want to try fitteds and sized prefolds as well. We only used traditional sized infant prefolds on our smaller than expected son. They were to big on him but since I refused to buy sposies they had to do.

Yup! They are still my favorite. If I didn't want the training pants to be so trim I'd use them there too. They're incredible for the nighttime toddler diapers. So much absorbency, so little bulk, and so much less stink.

Re: Does anyone really go birth to potty in one size?

i used small covers and burp cloths when ds was 4 months old, they fit good, we used preemie and nb sposies before then(ds wasnt preemie but so long and skinny) he was 7lb8os at birth but lost 1lb coming home because my milk didnt come in and once we started on formula he gained it back quick. I got os flip and econobum in a ds lotto when ds was 6 months and on the smallest setting they fit his waist but still gapped in the legs, i cant remember what he weighed then. He is 28 mos now and he is on the last setting for grovia aios and os fb leave marks on his hips so we dont use either of them anymore. Bg 3.0 are too short in rise but 4.0 and flips still fit. Also use m fuzzibunz, econobum, l megaroo etpf, xl snickelfritz and thirsties duo sz 2 aio. Large bg are too short in the rise, we used them from 10 mos until about 18 mos. Most larges are too big in the waist but many os are outgrown for the rise. I dont get why os fb are too small but m fit great but oh well. Oh also outgrown os charlie banana

DS2 was 10lbs 2oz at birth, BG 4.0s fit him at birth until he PTd at 27 months, 33lbs. I did use NB diapers on him, but they didn't last long, and the only reason I used them was because I had them!

Re: Does anyone really go birth to potty in one size?

My 2 year old is a big guy. We were able to start right away with one size diapers (he didn't need newborn sizes) but he outgrew all the "one size" diapers between 12-18 months old. He's 2 1/2 now, 42 lbs and finding diapers to fit him is close to impossible. He really needs XXL sized diapers.

When my girls were in cloth, everything was sized, newborn, small, med, large & toddler size. I really, really hate the newer trend of most companies selling one size diapers only. They leave out the smaller newborns and the larger toddlers.

Re: Does anyone really go birth to potty in one size?

no and here is why, my dd was born at 9.3lbs and fit in newborn diapers for about 4 weeks, then went to one sized and they fit fine, until her thighs got too chubby and started leaving indents from the rise snaps on OS diapers and covers, then switched her to medium covers and flats and now at 18 months I am going to try large pockets and AIO's. She has outgrown most OS diapers by now anyway. The MEOS fitteds are too small on her now as well. The only diaper that fits her really well are blueberry and swaddbees sized diapers, I have done cloth on and off with her due to my move and divorce but I will be trying larges again now until potty learning or a find a fulltime job outside the home. She is about 30lbs at 18 months. Some of the OS diapers still fit but the rise snap issue makes them undesirable.
