could my 16lb-er need a large Happy Hempy??
I have a medium happy hempy and I'm buying one from someone on here as well. I also bought a large on here yesterday too so I'll test it out. I have a 4 month old but he's big - 16 lbs. I stuffed the HH that I Have w/ a hemparoo wrapped in a mf towel, so it is bulky (but he needs it). the medium seems to fit him perfectly - meaning he may grow out of it pretty quickly. If I like the wool soakers I just ordered I would buy a bunch more of these pocket fitted diapers (the regular fitteds just dont' seem strong enough for my big pee-er LOL). Anyway, I"m wondering if I should just get larges and hope t hat I can just fasten them as tight as they go for now and let him grow into them. A large is 20-25 lbs though so I'm not sure. As of now, the top of the diaper is about an inch below his belly button wh en its fastened. What do you think?

I thought those ran a bit small back when I tried them, esp. fully stuffed, so it's possible!

thanks for your opinion! I like a high rise on my diapers, so that could be it too. I always moved him up early when I was still using disposables. I just feel better w/ that b/c he's a boy - if I had a girl I might not be so concerned about that. Once I get the large HH I bought off here, I'll know more, so I will wait until I can "test drive" before I buy new ones!
