Size XL on a 24 month old who weights 30 pounds. (The sweater is the Disana merino jumper pullover wool sweater.) Notice the shape and the fit on the legs. The rise is nicely high so it's easy to completely cover any diaper in the back or the front. Softness, comfort, freedom of movement, no red marks at all. Love!
5 weeks old in size small. It's so soft and cute, you just want to keep on hugging him!
Size Large and XL have and adjustable elastic waist. The opening for the button-adjustable elastic waist is on the outside, so only the soft wool touches baby. I pulled it out a bit for the picture so you can see it, but on baby it lays flat. It is nice to be able to adjust the waist.
Size small and medium have a bit of elastic threading sewn right in to the waist to help it stay in shape.
Night weight cover. The additional layer of wool is added to the outside and the seams are on the outside
This is a close up of the picture above. Can you see how wonderfully soft it is?
Size Small has a shorter rise for a very young baby:
3 months old 12 pounds in medium NIGHT cover. There is plenty of growing room.
5 months old in a medium

11 months old.
Note from Karen: I started using this size large on this baby at 11 months old. Later, at almost 2.5 years old and I still used that very same size large on her. Great value! I used it a lot. At 30 pounds and 2.5 years she is a lot taller. Notice where the cover is now compared to her knees. It's still a wonderful cover even after 1.5 years of hard use! Wool outlasts synthetics because it can be relanolized.
