|The Stages of Diapers of the Twins: Preemie Small, NB, 1, 2 & currently in 3.|
You can see the # "7" written on the Preemie diaper on the left, which I explain in this post.
Preemie #1 was transported to an appropriate unit and one of my first memories of him was him spread out on a warming bed in a very big diaper, pretty much swallowing up his lower body and torso. It was on very loose to avoid irritating his premature skin.
Once the twins arrived at their NICU, on went the tiniest diapers I have ever seen! Pampers Premature Small. Wow. It amazed me that diapers were made this small! These diapers weigh 7 grams.

His leg is the same size as my 2 lbs Preemies' diaper!
The "Preemie" is in a NB size diaper rolled up.
