Tall & Skinny babies - what do they wear?

Postby fluffycabbage » Fri Dec 04, 2009 9:04 pm

Charlie is tall and skinny, with skinny thighs. Im finding it hard to find nappies which fit her right. Front fastening tend to give the best fit tho, dont get leg gape then when i have to super-boost :roll: .
So...if you have a tall & skinny minnie like Charlie, what does he/she wear?

Gracie is mega skinny and tall and TBH we don't have any problems with nappies at all, pretty much anything fits her well, BB, WN, FF, HO, Jr, DnF, etc all fit well and thankfully so does her yummy new dreamscape xx

Katie is very skinny although she's not particularly tall - she only weighs 26lbs and is still in 12-18 and some 18-24 months clothes. We don't get on with any front fastening nappies at all though so all of our stash is made up of SS ones - DnFs, FFs, Puddlekins, HLs and JRs mainly and they all fit well.

:giggle: ittis last (or at least when i sold them) about an hour :-? UD's are fine if theyre FF aplix :-?

Isnt it strange how some babies can be the same sort of shape but need SS not FF? mind you. DnF's fit perfectly, but no other SS that ive tried so far does fit really well :-?

Ho hum, keep looking :giggle:

Sandies. we still get absolutely the best fit with these and have room to boost.

I'm starting to try a few other prettier nappies now, but Sandies are our staple comfy nappy!

Miss C is in 12-18m clothes, but she is long rather than chubby.
