Side snaps?

Postby sim » Thu Aug 06, 2009 7:44 pm

Yet another random question...
Can someone explain to me how the fit is different in a side snap nappy?
TIA

Not sure how you mean by fit but I'll answer as best I can...

Front snap nappies the tabs are outside the front of the nappy - if the nappy doesn't fit the baby well you can end up with 'wing droop' where the sides of the front droop down under the tabs as often they only fasten at the end of the tabs in the centre of the nappy (ish)

With a side snap nappy you are fastening in the middle/nearer the body of the nappy and the front of the nappy goes OVER the tabs so you don't get wing droop and you often get a better fit...
