BumGenius on a newborn??

I'm very skeptical about one sized diapers in general, but I have seen great reviews about BumGenius... would they work on a newborn?? I just can't see how something that will fit a 25 lb child could possibly fit an 8lb baby... but maybe??

I didn't start using BG diapers on Ethan until he was 4 months old so I'm not sure either, but they have a picture of them on a tiny newborn, so it may be possible!

Re: BumGenius on a newborn??

just got my BG in the mail today!

i now can understand how it can fit a small tiny baby as a toddler!

w/ snaps u can fold it and snap it in to make the rise short for a small baby and unsnap them as they grow bigger... and the velcro has lots of room to grow

it's in the wash right now and i can't wait to try them on my 8 mon. old!
i got it in butter color.. and it looks great!

so excited!!

Re: BumGenius on a newborn??

I've been using them on my newborn since birth and they fit great. He was 8lbs, 5ozs. at birth. It isn't as trim on him as it is on my 2-year-old but I've learned that "trim" and "newborn" rarely go together diaperwise. The insert that comes with the BGs is too big, imo, for newborns but MF towels work perfectly.

I think they fit newborns well, but I haven't had good luck with containment with them. I only have 1, and everytime I've used it, she's soaked out the side. I feel like I get it snug enough, but still it leaks. I think it wouldn't be as much of an issue if she was older because she won't be nursing & sleeping as much. Because I nurse frequently in bed, she ended up side-sleeping much of the time. I've not had leaking with FB or Mommy's Touch OS, so I'm not sure why it happens with the BG.

WELL! I have a 5.5 Lb newborn and they are too big for his chicken legs!!! hahahah But as soon as his legs plump up a bit, I'm sure they will fit! I love the fit on my 15 mth old!!
I also have Mommy's Touch which I have not tried on the little one...but they also work GREAT on my 15 mth old!!

I think it depends on the newborn. With our BG, ds had really skinny legs and waist, so I had trouble getting a super snug fit, couldn't get it done up tight enough so we had leaking problems.
I agree that they are quite bulky on a newborn as well, especially with the CB insert, but that's to be expected with a one size dipe.
Our BG fit ds better once he was closer to 2 months old, and have been great since. But if you have a baby with nice chunky thighs you may have better luck than I did
