A mom recently posted on our Facebook Wall asking how tight to make her FuzziBunz without making them too tight on baby. Good question!
Our community came together and provided a plethora of comments on how to ensure your cloth diaper is snug and secure on baby without making it a too-tight squeeze on baby. Here’s a sampling of the responses:
Make sure you can get a finger or two between baby’s leg and the diaper. It takes a little playing around with until you find the perfect setting.
Make sure there are no red imprints on baby’s waist or legs. If this happens, the diaper is too tight and you need to loosen the snaps or size-up if needed. Check the FuzziBunz sizing chart and re-measure your baby to ensure the perfect fit. Some moms say that if the diaper is too tight, it will leak; keep the diaper snug but a little loose on baby to ensure maximum functionality!
Make sure the elastic is bouncy. If it gets stretched out, you may overcompensate by making the diaper tighter than needed. (Ed. Note: FuzziBunz offers low-cost replacement elastic kits for its One-Size diapers. The kits require no sewing or seam ripping and are a great way to make your FuzziBunz last for a long, long time!)
Run your fingers around the gathers to ensure all the openings lay flat on baby with no bunches or gaps. A bunch can make the diaper too tight or uncomfortable on baby.
We hope these comments help you determine just the right fit for your baby – good luck!
