Thirsties Duo diapers size 2?

I just got some Thirsties Duo size 1 pockets to try and I love them so far, EXCEPT, my 12lb 5 week old is almost too big for them. They say they fit up to 18 lbs, but they don't seem any bigger than the XS wraps and fit almost the same.

But I still like them and was thinking about ordering size 2 instead. Does anyone have experience with size 2 on "smaller" babies?

I'll add that by "almost too big for them" I mean that he is on the highest rise and has a fairly large waist so there isn't a ton of room there either.

The Duos (diaper and wraps) run a bit smaller. I read on GMD's website that the cutoff is more like 15 lbs, and I've found that to be true. I moved DS to the 2's at about 14 lbs and they fit fine.

I found the same thing! DS can barely still fit into his size 1's at 15lbs and 6 months, and there's no way he'll fit into them with another 3lbs on him. I ordered a size 2 around 13lbs and they run a bit bigger- he def. had room to spare on the smallest setting (the wings completely crossed over). They now are starting to fit pretty well at 15lbs but aren't our trimmest cover/diaper yet. But they're going to last a long time which I really like.

ETA: I think they made the 2's right- they seem like they'd fit perfect at 18lbs and up. I just think they made the 1's a tad too small.

I put my dd into the 2's when she was 3 months or so and about 18lbs.

you will LOVE the 2s. I use the 2s on my 15 pounder. The 1s still fit but I prefer the 2s on him and they seem like they will fit for a while.
