UD help!

Postby fluffycabbage » Tue Aug 25, 2009 10:07 pm

hi - charlie has a (nearly) 15" waist and (nearly) 12" rise. I want to order some custom pockets from Upsy Daisy, but the measurements are totally different to charlie. Does she have a big tum or small rise? Im confused as to what to order...... :-? :coffee:

hmmm I have just measured my lo and having the same thoughts...

he has a waist of nearly 20" (I know!) and a rise of 15" which doesn't match any of the nappies I would just like to add that my lo is only 12 weeks old! I have chacked and rechecked the tape measure believe me, are they more low rise so I shouldn't be measuring as high as his fitteds come?

I am really wanting to try some of there nappeco while there is a reduction

anyone?

are you measuring rise over or under a nappy? I've always measured over...

Confusing isn't it :?

Rise is almost always measured over the nappy... (always as far as I know but I'm sure there's exceptions)
Don't forget by the time you've added bulk to a nappy (i.e. inserts to a pocket etc) you need more fabric to go around them if that makes sense?

Try measuring his rise without a nappy and then measuring one of his nappies (stretched) and then measuring over said nappy... See what the difference is...
