Well she loved her first swimming lesson bless her! The cloth nappy hasn't gone down so well. She screamed from the time I put her in it to the time I took her out. :crossbaby: It looked like it was on too tight as she had red marks around her tummy :cry: :cry: yet at the same time I could still easily get 2 fingers into the waist band! :x what am I doing wrong? Am trying to work out how to post a little picture but I am shocking at using computers! :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Just tried to work it out and looked on the FAQ's but it's far too complicated I'm afraid! But she looks cute as a button! :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll: :babyroll:

Could just be the new sensation? I would think if you can still get 2 fingers in and as long as its not leaving any marks its not too tight :-?

OK here is the pic for Lucy!

She is just gorgeous, as is the nappy, I so need one of them if I get a girl baby! I agree with the others, it will feel different to her and I'd say that you have the waist done up too tight if it is leaving red marks which will make it not very comfy :wink: just keep fiddling - you'll get it right and she'll get used to them.

They are more comfy than plastic dispos in my opinion, I know I'd rather wear cotton knickers than those disposable paper ones - would you? Louis, once he was older, would choose his 'real' nappies over dispos if that makes you feel any better and toddlers are very fussy :wink:

Try it a bit looser, I would go with what you can see over anything else. If you can't see any gaps, there probably aren't any :wink: and don't forget that when you lay on your back your stomach sinks in a bit :wink:

Have you had a go with fitteds? I think something like a little lamb might be easier to see what your doing with. I don't have a ll but I do have a couple of tots fitteds I could lend you if you want to try them?
