Hi,<br><br>
I'm hoping someone has experience with xs very baby aios and can tell me what the minimum baby weight is on them. Fuzzibuns xs (preemie) is from 4-10 lbs. Is the XS Very Baby comparable, or is it an 8lb and up dipe?<br><br>
I'm asking because I'm anticipating a 6ish lb baby and want to be able to AIO/Pocket cd right from the birth. I'm afraid of leakage using an 8lb and up dipe on a 6lb baby...<br><br>
Thanks!<br>
Cindy

They fit my dd moments after her birth and she weighed 7lbs2oz. Good thing cause I had a stash of 24 of them!<br><br>
They would definitely fit a 6-lber as well. I have a pic somewhere in my files...if you pm me your email addy, I'll send you a pic of how it fit her from day one.

Yes, they fit 6lbrs well. I think Shandelle/Toddzwife's little preemie was under 6lbs and the XS VBs were one of her favorites.<br><br>
I had a 8lb, 4oz NB and the VBs fit for aabout 3 weeks. She didn't gain weight very fast though.<br><br>
I have to say though, that I liked the FBs better. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag"> I thought the VBs too way too long to dry and those little doublers were the bane of my newborn haze existence. Also, my baby was sensitive to feeling wet.<br><br>
That said... I LOVE WAHMs. But, I just am not crazy about VBs.

I had a 6lb (exact) baby and they fit well at about 2 weeks when I started with cloth- his skinny legs were the big problem with all our cloth except for Kissaluvs 0 with Bummis nb covers. The legs on the VBs were one of the best for fit, though. And they are SO easy to get on a little folded-up chicken-legged newborn <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

I have mom's expecting their 3rd getting freaked out by my siggie and moms of three saying, "RIGHT ON!" I don't want to freak out the expecting mamas! but, uh, yes, three is way more than two. It's also wonderful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Oh, I should note about the VBs - I am the total oddball. I think I'm like one of 1000 people who don't like the VBs very well!

I LOVED my xs very babies! My little guy was 6 pounds & fit into it perfectly. They fit for about 7 weeks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I've heard that a lot of people like the fbs better. I have nowhere to hang dry in my house and am planning on using the delicate low heat cycle on my dryer for the dipes. The aios probably would take way more time to wash than I have time for, considering there's also the baby clothes, our sheets, our towels, our cold water and our warm water clothes... Thats many seperate washes...<br><br>
Hey, has anyone washed their diapers with anything else in the same load? It seems a little risky to me, but maybe you could put the baby clothes in as well? Just wondering, I don't want to experiment and ruin a whole bunch of dipes/clothes....

no, I've always washed my dipes separately. Why don't you have them made without the internal soakers.....get snap in soakers instead. You can ask them to be made to be quick dry (layers spilt up, so you can stick your hand through the snap in soaker)...not sure who'd make um that way but you could ask. That said, the regular snap in soakers dried quickly enough for me. I just layed them out in the crib to dry if they weren't completely dry from the one cycle.
