At what age did you find your OSFM MCN's fit your little one?
My DS is nearly 10wks old but they do not fit well around the legs. I have heaps of different brands and none of them fit properly. I didn't think his legs were overly skinny so not sure why they do to fit properly.

DS1 was about 3months when they started to fit. DS2 was about 1 month when they started to fit (chubby bub with a massive butt lol).

My little one was 6 months but she was and still is tiny. I found the best fit on little babies was small bambootys and small itti bitti's. Itti's are on sale for $14.95 at the moment.

Probably around 4 months. The main problem was the fat newborn tummy meant i couldn't do them up tight enough to seal around the legs..... the tummy thing eases after a while and makes it all a bit easier, although I really do prefer sized nappies overall and regretted having purchased so many OSFM nappies before my baby was born!

I have some small Peapods which fit well and a small Designer Bum which also fits well. I do them up as tight as possible but you can still see inside them.
Not keen to buy sized as I have spent a fortune on OSFM.

I use the baby beehinds bamboo fitteds and they seem to work fine from about 4.5kg on.
At that age, though, I do tuck the leg frills in rather than leave them out, and then put the cover over the top as usual.

DS have fit well enough to use for a few weeks now. Although I only resort to them if I have used all the small peapods

my OSFM have adjustment for both the waist and the legs, so from birth to 2.5 (so far)

I didn't use mine until bub was about 3 months and even then I didn't use them a lot because I was using the adjusting clips wrong. Also, I found that they weren't very good for runny breast milk poo. When I figured out how to adjust the size properly a few months ago, I use them a lot.

Most of mine I can only adjust at the waist. I will wait a couple of weeks and try again.
Thanks for your replies.
