Kissaluvs Size Comparison
May 9, 2008 6:09 pm | by

Picking a kind of diaper can be a little befuddling, and once you do that you have to figure out which size to buy. Unless you buy one size diapers like bumGenius, but then you still need to experiment with the right settings.

Well I am here to clear up a little confusion on that! Lily is a mildly chubby 15-16ish pounds right now. I tried on all the sizes of Kissaluvs, and was pleasantly surprised at how flexible the sizing options really are. I haven’t used the size zero on her in a couple of months, but low and behold, she fit in them fine. They were very trim on her now and probably couldn’t be used for overnight anymore, but they still fit her well. The size 1 kissaluvs, which are the ones she wears most, fit her just right and are a good deal thicker than the size zero. She has been in those since her belly button was well healed. My older son wore these from two months old until he was almost two years old. The size 2 are a bit bulky on her but are great for overnight and will fit her for a good, long time. I do need to size up the cover when I put her in one of those.

You can also see a picture of a newborn and a toddler in their Kissaluvs Diapers on the CottonBabies page.

A note about diaper sizes: Sometimes it seem like chubby babies are outgrowing all their diapers around 8-11 months. You may start to worry that you will need to buy a much bigger size soon. But most of the time babies will slim down around the belly and legs quite a bit once they start to walk and even those diapers that were well outgrown will suddenly fit again.

    My 4mo baby boy is very long, so the Kissaluvs were fabulous for the in-between stage of infant size prefolds and medium AIOs. But now, they look like bikini speedos on him. I am still fastening it tight around the waist, but I am not so confident about the rise and the containment therein. If ya know what I mean.

    These are very nice for newborns, as are prefolds. They absorb a lot and absorb fast. They are not quite as easy on the run as AIOs or pockets. It will depend on your priorities and what you want out of your diapers.
