I am looking for a small sized nappy for dd - 1 week old. I have tried Woolies select and Target Dribots they are huge on her, they have been slipping down no matter how tight I do the tabs, she is 6 lbs.

I hate baby love, but they have a size "under 4.5kgs" they are tiny. hope this helps...

Hi Kate, the You'll Love Coles Newborn size (they come in a green packet) are absolutely teeny tiny. Give them a try - i'd be very surprised if they didn't fit.

I only used huggies newborn when they were that little but my smallest was also only 7lb12.

I've found Huggies are pretty small. Have you tried the Woolies Select ones that start at 2.5kg?

babylove newborn are/were the same size as huggies premature nappies, definitely smaller than huggies newborn. At 6lbs though I wouldnt be buying toooo many really small nappies because they usually grow out of them pretty fast

I didnt even know babylove had newborn size
I will check them out and I was going to try Coles anyway so I will try them also.

I found the best to be Huggies newborns, my girls were 2kgs and 2.2kgs when I bought them home. Huggies stick well anywhere on the nappy so you fasten them low and fold the top down IYKWIM (so they are firm around the legs), some of the others aren't as well gusseted, so even though they appeared to fit better the poo is not contained as well.
