|I know there's a lot of questions on the forum about how ME dipes fit newborns so I took pics of my sweet baby showing off his dipes. He is exactly on the 50th percentile of the growth curve, so he's approximately average but of course every baby is shaped a little differently!
Noel at 4 days old, weighing 7 lbs (born at 7 lbs. 8 oz):
With a newborn Dappi nylon pant over the MEOS
The small Sandy is still much too large on him - surprisingly the MEOS fit him much better! You can't really see it in the pic but the legs and waist are really loose and of course it goes up way over his umbilicus.
Then at 6 weeks old, weighing 10 lbs. 12 oz ...
With the newborn Dappi pant again
And now the small Sandy's diaper fits! It just started fitting snug enough around the leg to hold in the poop. I'm glad I started with smalls and didn't buy xsmalls though.
Even at 11 lbs. now and wearing the MEOS, he's still fitting well in his Carter's & Gymboree 0-3 month clothes. So in our case, bulk is not a problem. Hope this helps!
