  • My daughter was out of them a week after she was a month old. It all depends on the weight.

  • It depends, when I had my daughter I didn't change out of them for month, but she was born so small that the newborn diapers didn't really fit her to begin with. i wouldn't worry about it if the DR. isn't worried about it. Maybe in a month or two he will have grown out of it, but don't get all antsy for him to grow, love these moments, there will come a time that you will say oh dear, I wish he was just little again, even if it's because he explores and is too happy to demolish your house! hope this helped!

  • I don't think there is a normal. Kids are different and some stay small in stature. My LO is 3 and still fits in 12 month old clothes. It's pretty wild but I know there are others out there like this as well.

  • it depends on how big the baby is. They never fit my baby who was over 9 lbs at birth.
