  • I prefer cloth actually, but if i were to choose one over the other the pamper's swaddlers are softer

  • u could go up a size but i understand if u dont want to... my son is 10lbs and we use size 3 for him because they dont fit right on his legs... but luvs work really well i think pampers r better though and thats what i use

  • pampers are my favorite. Luvs work wonderfully, but pampers are so much softer. I didn't like huggies...

  • pampers are the best. huggies leak. they are more expensive, but they are much better!

  • Go cloth if you're at all interested! It's a great switch to make, and (esp. if you stay at home) you wouldn't regret it!

  • You can go up a size. The weights are guidelines, not limitations.

    I've been using Parents Choice and Luvs for my boys. I figure I'm going to spend as little as possible on something that is going to be peed in and pooped on then thrown out.

  • I don't think you'll need a size 3 if you go pampers... when mine wears disposables, she wears a 3 in Pampers (and she's 23 pounds). I would say more like size 1 or 2 for a 9 pounder.

  • Brinkleys mommy . . . your baby should be in a size 1 or 2. My 22 lb 14 month old would fit into a size three!!
