Diapers squishing my son's peep?

Yes, we call it his peep. Anyway, his peep seems to be "squished" down against his body far more in cloth than it is in a disposable. Sometimes it looks a little red. The diaper doesn't seem to be uncomfortably tight on him.

Any thoughts??

Re: Diapers squishing my son's peep?

Thanks for the suggestions. I am using CJ's BUTTer on it. I'm more concerned about how it seems to get flattened with the diaper. He is 17 lbs and I have the BG 4.0 on the second size snaps, and for the diapers that are snap shut I have him on the second from middle setting on either side. He's in velcro most of the day though. He's pretty skinny. Hmmm...

Majority of DS2's diapers leave him looking like that.

My thought, too. My DS looks a little squished at times too but he always acts like he feels fine so I don't worry about it.

I was worried about that too. Finally got DH to come look how it was squished right when the diaper came off. His response was, "he is fine, leave him alone."

My son always looks kinda squished too, and sometimes even pinched if the diaper has bunched at all. I hope it doesn't bother him!
