You need to measure as all babies are different. Measure from where you want the nappy to sit on the front (I generally like mine to be just below the belly button) then under the crotch and up to where you want it to sit on the back. All of my children have needed higher rise nappies and they have always grown out of the rise first, never the waist or thighs.

We've always gone for high rise, the Mouse is rather on the tall and skinny side, but I also thought that they would be more cost-effective, as she would be les likely to grow out of the nappy as soon. What size will your daughter need? I'm selling off my stash bit by bit, but I have one HR AI2 left, in large...

Yep, always high rise here too. Like Louise I found DD always outgrew the rise rather than the width.

DS has outgrown his standard so I have had to replace with HR which can make it expensive. I'd always go HR now.
