nappy slippage!

Postby rhead » Wed Mar 18, 2009 4:11 pm

When DD was smaller (9 months-ish), I had a lot of problems with builder's bum, and decided that she needed nappies with a high rise - basically we went straight to larges when height and weight-wise you'd have thought she'd need mediums. Mainly we used Swaddlebees fitteds, which were perfect. Then I started diversifying, and for a couple of months practically everything seemed to fit, though we did have some issues with front-snapping nappies and occasionally SS as well. But just recently, I've been finding that her nappies (all sorts of fitteds) seem to slip down in the back, so her bum's peeking out - even ones I know have a high rise. Before I start selling everything that's giving us problems :roll:, is it possible that I'm doing something wrong? Maybe I just need to fasten them tighter? I do try not to do them up too tightly, as I hate the thought of her tummy being squeezed when she sits down (who doesn't hate too-tight trousers? :giggle:).

I don't have any problems with her pockets, it's just fitteds. :(

I would say it sounds like they need to be done up a little tighter! Can't hurt to try it!

yeah I would try doing them tighter as well, Gracies nappies are always fastened snug on her and never had problems with them being too tight or uncomfortable x

Can you try fastening them with a nippa, to get the tightness, but angle it so not too tight on thighs?

As I'm always open to an excuse to sell nappies and buy different ones, I think I'll just weed them out. :cry: :giggle:
