    Default Disposable nappies for newborn

    I'm going to use cloth after the first two weeks, but disposable first just til we get our heads around having a baby.

    I'm finding sizes really confusing; baby is expected to be on the larger side so far, so do I bother getting newborn size, or infant 4-8kg size? In case he's born eg 3.7kgs

    My DD was over 4kgs and still used newborn for the first month. I think newborn is up to 5kgs for huggies.

    Yep, newborn. Most babies will use them for the first month or two, and Drs can be so wrong about the same of babies. I was told DS would be big. He was an average size, not big at all!!

    I'm using infants on my newborn, but they are pretty big (I fold down the front a bit and they work well ).
