So tiny they fit in your hand.
Quite a few years ago, before the diaper manufacturing adventure, a friend of mine gave birth to her baby more than four months premature. He was healthy, but she ran into one problem that she passed on to me: find diapers because nothing fits.
The two of us had lived on the same street and cloth diapered our first babies together using exactly the same flat diapers. She knew I would get diapers she would like. I figured, how difficult could it be? Finding preemie cloth diapers was difficult. I found no fitted diapers, no flat diapers, and in the end I produced a pile of wash cloths as diapers for her 4-lb baby. The wash cloths worked, though the covers were much too big.
Once I began designing cloth diapers, I knew I needed a size small enough for a premature baby. The Firefly Diapers Extra Small is the result.

Babies from 5 lbs to a skinny 10-lb 5-month old have fit Extra Small diapers well. Some full-term newborn babies will fit Extra Small, but the size was designed primarily for preemies. For sizing details, please see our measurement chart to find the best fit.
