What's deal with Side Snaps?

Postby mrsdimples » Sat Sep 12, 2009 10:17 am

I'm still fairly new to cloth, and all my nappies are middle front fastening.

So what's the deal with side snaps - why?
Are they better?
Should I have some?

you tend to get a better fit with side snaps as you can adjust the legs and waist to differnet poppers they are also a neater fit less bulk around the waist and harder for toddlers to undo

Yep, for lo's like mine who have chunky legs and a slim waist, or vice versa, side snap nappies give a much better fit.

We prefer SS nappies too, can't get a good fit with front fastening nappies at all. You should definitely get a few to try. :twisted: :twisted: :giggle:

It's interesting because I'd always had more sucess with front fasteners on the older two but Nicky has the hugest thighs ever and side snaps are better because I can allow for his thighs without leaving the waist gapping. :wine:
