I liked my FLAMs a lot. They fit a newborn very well, they were smallish on my 9 lb 8 oz baby, so they should fit a smaller baby well. They come below the umbilical cord and there is just one row of snaps, so they are super easy to get on a curled up newborn. The only negatives I found was that I wish they had hidden snaps, especially against newborn skin, and the way the quick dry soaker is designed, it tends to curl up after awhile so you have to flatten it before putting it on the babe. Not a big deal though.
