What do you all recommend using for a newborn baby's very first fitted diaper - and I mean FIRST diaper in her life? I want one fitted to bring to the hospital and the nurse will be putting it on my daughter after she's born so I need something that will be easy to use and tiny enough for a brand new baby. I made a fitted myself but am not sure it will fit - I think it may be too big. I can get Kissaluvs locally so I'm thinking a Kissaluv size 0? What do you think? Dr. estimates her weight to be 6 1/2 lbs now (at 36 weeks) but she will probably come several weeks early, so maybe 7-8 lb. range?<br><br>
TIA,<br><br>

I got a really cute newborn diaper w/ abc print thats just as small as kissaluv at diapershop.com. It has the little snap for the cord and was $9.00.

I have not cd'd a newborn, but it seems that many moms do love the kissaluv's size 0's. I have seen them on newborns and they seem like a good fit. I was not a fan of them for my older baby, but I will definitely try them if I have another one. Since you can get them locally maybe get a few to try and buy more if you like them. They resell well 'cause they don't get a whole lot of use before the baby outgrows them.

The nurse really doesn't have to put the dipe on your new baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Just tell her you prefer to do it yourself. Kissaluvs 0's are popbular with newborns. I have heard that they are not terribly absorbent though. When I have another baby I plan on getting SP size 1's for him/her.

Well... This may prove difficult since I'm having a c-section and will probably still be on the operating table getting my tubes tied and stiched up<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> But it made me laugh.<br><br>
Yeah, I've heard they aren't very absorbant, but I'm not very concerned since I don't plan to use it a whole lot. Really the only reason I'm buying one is for that first time use - isn't that silly of me, really? I just want her to be in cloth from the very beginning.<br><br>
Maybe I should just make another fitted with a shorter rise. Or would I rather take a nap?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
Thanks everyone!<br><br>
