Fuzzibunz, prorap, kissaluv users... how long was dc in smalls?

So we have a nice little stash of small FBs, small proraps and kissaluvs, size 0... In an attempt to be somewhat prepared for the next round of diaper buying, I'm curious to know how long did your dcs stayed in small sizes of these diapers???

Gotta know how long I have before I have to find more money to buy dipes with... it's a bit rough for a couple of students to just drop dough on a whole new size of dipes .

I never had kissaluvs in size 0 but I have had small FB and Prowraps. My little guy is pretty big and I started thinking we needed to move up around 3 mos. However he could still where them until right at 4 mos. If your babe has a long rise FB s may not last that long if not and has thinner thighs they may last longer. HTH

it sounds like you might have used kissaluvs in other sizes... i don't know if i should include them in my next size stash, b/c it sounds like they're really well reviewed for containing newborn poo, which i totally agree with, but are they as good for older babies? that's a second issue i'll need to figure out. when they get older, is the poo less explosive, so fitteds may be less useful, and prefolds will work just fine?? are kissaluvs size 1 used often???

I use kissaluvs size 1's now but I have heard others say that they aren't as absorbant as other fitteds but I like them. However I don't need them to hold a ton of pee, I use them at home coverless for EC'ing so that if I miss a pee I know it right away but don't have a mess. The few times he has pooped in one it has held it in really well and he is EBF so the poops haven't really changed much.

He wore Kissaluvs 0s until about 13 weeks and could still wear them now bikini style. (granted he's only 15wk LOL!)

Still in small FBs too. We're JUST getting off the tightest waist snaps this week and he's on the 2nd outer snaps for thighs. I'm figuring he'll be in them until August.

never used proraps.

We did FBs until she was about 4 months then had to move up, due to her chunky thighs. She can still wear a few smalls though and she's almost 16 lbs.
