Side snap nappies and chubby thighs...

Postby megansmummy » Thu Jan 28, 2010 1:31 pm

:-?

Kieren has slightly chubby thighs, he isnt that chubby but we are having problems with some of his side snap nappies, Large WNNN's fit on the tightest waist snaps but the legs are on the 2nd on one side and 3rd on the other :-? I also notice that when he is sat down playing before bed that he ends up with red marks where the leg snaps have been? but they arnt THAT tight...just togh enough to do it up if you see what I mean? Im getting the same with the HL tri tone that I have but i dont know what size it is, think it might be a M/L.

The only side snaps that I have that im not getting it with is his Large DnF's and size 2 HO

i dont know what to do about his WNNN's, they are perfect and absorbancy wise are just amazing but im worried about the thigh snaps marking him, i guess i could just leave them looser and deal with the poop leaks if i get them?

I have this problem with side snaps on Imogen due to her chunky thighs, with our NN I do them up so there will be no marks and hope for the best, we've have had no leaks so far!

Maybe once WN start selling their front snap northern lights they might do front snapping NN :babyroll:

I'm having similar problems with Dexter who has mahoosive thighs :oops: , so much so that I've given up on all our side snapping nappies and am mostly using ones that I've made or front snapping ones :( . I'm not sure what the answer is hun :hug: :hug:

Luckily I have a decent amount of goodmamas which fasten like a dream and large DnF's and 2 HO's on oreder through the co-op but our biggest problem is nighttime :-? Maybe i will just have to leave them loose and hope for the best... I really cant believe how not-large a large WNNN is on Kieren :-?

Hmmm, odd. I find SS better for Dawn's huge thighs :-? :giggle:
I have an UD Fleece wrap that isn't tight on her legs but leaves a red mark. I just make sure she doesnt wear it for too long and I make sure to give her nappy free time too after she's had it on. She doesn't scratch at it or anything, iyswim, so I don't think it bothers her...

Maybe it would be better if he was walking aroud and stuff, its when he sits down that they seem to mark the tops of his thighs...
