Re: Swaddlebees NB fitteds vs. Kissaluvs 0 Fitted

I think it really depends on the size of your babe. The SB are soooo adorable and soft and I think are probably trimmer on. However, with my DS, the KL0 fit for so, so, so much longer. The KL0 are really stretchy so that even now at 9 weeks he can still fit into them. Now, there are really low rise on him but he hasn't been able to squeeze into the SB since he was 2 or 3 weeks old. DS was a bigger baby at 8 lb 12 oz. so I think that if you had a smaller babe the the SB would be really cute and nice/trim for those early weeks, but there's a longer fit with the Kissaluvs. HTH!

I just bought 6 of each and by looking at them *we haven't used them yet* the SB appear to be more trim, and the KL seem wider.

My guess is that I will use the SB in the very beginning, but get more use out of the KL in the long run. But, I bought both to try b/c I had heard that the KL might be bulky until about 10 lbs.

HTH.

I could post a side by side picture if that will help you out

Re: Swaddlebees NB fitteds vs. Kissaluvs 0 Fitted

wow what a difference in width! I bet the SB are nice at first then I have 12 on their way and I already have 32 KS 0's LOL! I just didnt know what would be better? If the SB are only good for a few weeks and the KS 0's are good from the beginning to much longer I may just stick with the KS 0's. I just like how trim those SB newborns look!!!

So are the SB not as stretchy? It says on the site they can fit some babies up to 16 lbs.

I had the SB velour and they are sooo soft and plush. They are tiny, though and I have a big boy. I sold them a long time ago but still use our KL0s daily.

Re: Swaddlebees NB fitteds vs. Kissaluvs 0 Fitted

yeah I was worried that the NB SB's would be outgrown quick. I will just use the trim ones when we go out and the KS 0's the rest of the time. I just LOVE the trimness of the SB's. Maybe I should get the small SB's?!!
