well, we have decided we like our LHC fitteds the best and need to order more. our newborn is only 8 1/2 pounds, but there aren't too many snaps left. The site says 12 lbs for a medium, but I'm wondering if I should order some or stick with all smalls? any experience? are the mediums way bigger? thanks!

I got a medium for dd when she was about 10 pounds - it was a bit big atfirst, but now at 15 pounds, it fits like a glove! I'm waiting for some money so I can get some more - They snap down pretty small, but were kind of bulky on her when she was smaller. you might get a couple of smalls and then get mediums so you have some to grow into - or, maybe just order one medium so you can see how it is going to fit - it's not like you won't ever use it KWIM?

thanks sherri- good idea on just getting one medium to see. you think I'd know by my third baby, but I just can't remember how long it takes to get to 12 pounds LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I have a med LHC aio that has fit C from about 4 wks when he was about 11lbs. It was a little bit, but not so big that anything escaped. I really like it!

Oh I know how that is. This is my third baby as well and half the time I feel like a brand new mommy :LOL I was also thinking, you could email Becky and ask her what she thinks - she's super nice and I'm sure she could help you decide.

We got our first LHC medium when Chloe was about 8 weeks old and it fit her pretty well on the smallest snap. She was probably about 10 or 11 pounds then. I would probably go with the medium. I am saving up to order some more fitteds from there myself. If you are ready to order, do it today! She has free shipping until midnight tonight, and 15% off on orders over $100.! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Do these run differently than most other diapers? My dd is about 27lbs and can still wear a medium on the smallest (or second smallest) setting. ??? Is it the dipes, or is my DD super skinny?

Your DD is super skinny! lol I don't know! Nathan is on the thin side and is about 19-20lbs. Here he is in a medium LHC fitted:<br><br><a href="http://www.PictureTrail.com/gid4153387" target="_blank">http://www.PictureTrail.com/gid4153387</a><br><br>
This one has an internal soaker (I got it about 3-4 weeks ago) but she also does quick dry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
