Can an 8 pound baby wear size 1 diapers?
Most standard size 1 diapers are designed to fit babies 8-14lbs. But, as we know, all babies are different and each diaper brand can fit a little differently also.

Is it better for diapers to be too big or too small?
Bigger diapers are capable of handling more waste as they have more absorbent material. However, diapers may also leak because they are too big. Make sure that the diaper fits snugly around the waist and thighs by running your fingers around the edges and checking that there are no gaps.
How do you know if diapers are too small?
Examine a diaper in the current diaper size to see how it fits your baby. If you notice red marks around your baby’s upper legs and tummy from the elastic in the diaper, the diaper is likely too small. Additionally, if you notice that the diaper looks or feels too snug on your baby, it is likely too small.
