FBOS users...

I just got a FBOS to try out on DD. I think I got the settings right; she is pretty petite, I put the legs on a 3 in the front and 4 in the back (if I put them both on 3's they were too tight, both on 4's too loose) which by the way is very nice and adjustable...

but anyways, where the front leg button is, the diaper kind of flares out a little bit. Is that normal or do I not have it set correctly yet?

Re: FBOS users...

mine flares too, but now that you mentioned it, I'm going to try tightening the back button and loosening the front, maybe that will work. I'll let you know

Mine did that when DS was smaller, now that he's bigger it doesn't do that. When he was little it leaked/wicked from that spot ALL.THE.TIME.

Re: FBOS users...

Actually I found this pic the other day. DS is 4 months old in this pic and you can clearly see the puckering

Re: FBOS users...

Ours are on the biggest settings, they do that too. I think it's pretty common with FBOS.

Re: FBOS users...

Mine always fit fine but I always had both set on the same numbers. The puckering as the momma described is normal when elasticly(did I make that word up lol) changing it to tighter vs more slack for bigger babies/toddlers. Same thing happens on adjustable waist pants/shorts etc. I've never had a problem with my OS FB's on my 2yr old that was potty trained last July. I haven't put any on my 11 week old as I just like only sized diapers on her right now as she's really tiny. I tried when she was 6 weeks and again at 8 weeks but they were still too big on the smallest setting (She was under 10lbs.) I never had any leaks of any kind with my OS with my 3DD (new style OS FB).

Mine do that as well. I can't remember the numbers I have mine set on. I have started folding the puckers in though and that seems to work just fine.
