Just wondering if I should trim the ones I have or leave them be.

TIA

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

These fit really well when ds was teeny tiny. Are you talking about trimming infant pf's for a newborn? I wouldn't- because even though at first they might be a bit big, babies grow so fast at the beggining that you can always fold them at first to get a good fit.

Too big and bulky. I highly suggest getting some preemie pfs. I still use them all of the time as doublers and liners (when I use dipe cream)

My guy was 7lbs 10 oz

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

Ok... I am dumb! Don't trim them! Then they won't work real well as he gets a little bigger. They grow tooooo fast!

It will just be really bulky at first.

NAK....not reading well...

yes, I agree with Angela.. they *will* be bulky at first.. but they outgrow preemie size so fast that I wouldn't trim them to fit newborn size, I've always though it's silly to buy a lot of newborn size when you know how they grow the first month or two...
