I’ve been a long (long) time fan of side snapping diapers. I can attest to how much longer they actually fit compared to their front snapping cousins for all shapes of babies-which I can also attest to being as how my daughter was pretty much average in terms of legs and thighs and waist. My son however, was a chunky infant but once he had his walking legs on, he slimmed down to a regular bean pole. He’s long since been out of diapers-but the fact still remains, I much prefer side snapping diapers for their fit on such a wide variety of body types and because, in my opinion, there is a lot less bulk!
You may also opt to snap it as shown above without folding it over which will give you a bit longer rise and look something like this…
Once your baby has grown a bit from that teeny tiny newborn (or if your newborns are like mine and come a bit larger), you may not need this fold over option and can go straight to the smallest size waist settings on the wing. This side snapping diaper also features a single inner rise adjustment (snaps covered by the insert), for tiny newborns (while being used in conjunction with the fold down option) and those babies weighing anywhere from about 9-18 lbs. Once your baby has grown in length, simply unsnap the inner rise adjustment and wear as normal.
The wing snaps are offset top and bottom for a wider range of adjustment which makes a more customizable fit possible.
There will be the option to customize your insert(s). For those tiny newborns, the trifold insert designed for larger infants and toddlers will add bulk so you may opt for just a small 3 layer insert- 100% bamboo flannel or loop terry and velour- or go for the larger trifold insert- 100% bamboo flannel or a terry and velour. Or get both and use the “infant” 3 layer insert for your small baby and then add it to your tri-fold insert for 15 layers of absorbency which is night time worthy for toddlers! Or, opt for none and use your own inserts! The tri-fold insert can also double as a small prefold or lay in cover style soaker, the size is the same (12″ x 14″)! Too many options to list!
These will be available in 100% bamboo flannel and bamboo & organic cotton velour. The velour will be stretchier than the flannel but both are equally as nice against the skin!
