workhorse small no closure 6 weeks old babythirsties snap cover on 6 week old baby 6 weeks old and 11 pounds in Workhorse size small no-closure with a Thirsties Duo Snap size 1 in mango over it at the medium rise snap setting. The Workhorse extra rise (length of the front of the diaper) could be folded down before fastening it with the Snappi if a shorter rise is preferred as in the newborn picture above this one but not folding it down works just fine already. Babies grow so quickly. By making sure the rise is up enough like it is in this picture, then that makes the leg elastics snug up to just right so it contains things very nicely. This ability to adjust the rise of the Workhorse No-Closure is what makes it so adjustable and what makes it possible to skip a size for some babies.

 


6 pounds 8 ounces:

There are many ways to diaper a newborn baby. Some favorites are Orange Edge Newborn Prefold Diaper either fastened with a Snappi Fastener or unfastened (just lay it in the cover), with a Bummi Super Whisper over it.

Below, this baby is 10 days old and weighs almost 7 1/2 pounds.

newborn baby crying4 days old, about 6 pounds in Blueberry Simplex Newborn monkeys print. Even with his knees pulled up the cord dip still works. Newborn babies cry but the little "wahh, wahh" newborn cry sounds are sounds only newborn babies make. It's an amazing sound.

This next baby is about 7 pounds 14 ounces:

prefold newborn diaper Cloth-eez Prefold Diaper orange edge newborn is under all of the covers shown below. Yellow edge is too big for her. This baby is started out small and has just outgrown her preemie size diapers and moved up to orange edge.

pink newborn diaperBummis Super Brite size newborn. This can also work for large preemies. It's quite small.

preemie newborn diaperImse Vimse Organic Cover size Preemie, fits very nicely. A shame it's called a preemie cover because it fits average newborns quite nicely.

newborn baby diaperImse Vimse Organic Cover size Newborn. Still too big on her, but workable. This runs a larger than most newborn size covers, so it doesn't get outgrown as quickly as others.
