Dont know if this is quiet the right section for this, but, Dose anyone else find that the huggies newborn nappies are too big for their full term bubs? My little man was 3.6kg and the Newborn nappies were too big.. I was thinking of getting the preemie huggies nappeies for this bub..... Can anyone give me any advice??

My full termer was 2030gm and they did the job. Just pull them tighter. As long as there is no leg hole gap they should absorb everything with no leak.

I had them on my son & he was only 2.7 kg, just do them up as tight as you can, he'll grow into them soon enough. He may have skinny legs like my son did. I found they are really long & come high up his body, but they worked fine.

There are two things I do when the nappy is too big:
1. Fold down the front on the nappy a bit and then do up the tabs normally over the folded bit.
2. Pull the front part up high and then do the tabs up snuggly.

Pampers Newborn are smaller if you need it but found Huggies fine.

Yes, DD was full term but newborn size took ages to fit her properly, even Huggies. She was in newborn size until she was about 9 weeks

DS1 was 4.19kgs so he was only in newborn Huggies nappies for about 3 weeks!
DS2 was 3.45kgs and was in newborn Huggies for around 8 weeks I think. I just did them up tighter on his little skinny butt. Even now he wears a smaller size than DS1 did at the same age.
