swaddlebees inserts dont fit !?!

Postby fleur08 » Sun May 17, 2009 9:30 am

hi ive just got a couple of swaddlebees in large with large inserts and the inserts seem too long for the nappy. am i supposed to fold them somehow? ( 1 hemp pocket & 1 ocv pocket)
if i put them in as they are & stretch the nappy lenghtways so it fits ,it all bunches up & looks lumpy - what am i doing wrong! :-?

Hemp will shrink, have they been prewashed?

well the ocv one came with an insert which ive prewashed a couple of times, but ive also got another insert which i got off of here a while ago & looks pretty well used & im even having trouble with that, its ok if i fold it at the front so its a bit shorter - if i dont do that the insert definatly looks like its having a fight with the nappy and it puckers up, weird.
looks like they could do with being about half-1inch shorter.

The nappies are very stretchy, I used to use a big weed folded in 4 in Jaks?!
