Got my first fluffy mail today! need help!

They both seem to be to big for her? and the white one, the front part doesn't seem to fit right, is it suppose to be like that? Please help me doing this right or maybe tell me that it's might a wrong size for her.

She weighs at about 20lbs, waist 17, rise 15, thigh 11. They are appx measurements. What do you think??

Thanks!!

On that last pic, it doesn't look like you have the snaps set on the smaller setting. Pull the wings over more to make it a tighter fit.

The first one looks okay to me.....if it's a little bulky....maybe use it as a night dipe until she grows some more.

The 2nd one you can adjust the rise by snapping down the snaps in the front and then tighten the waist some more....the os dipes will be bulkier when your baby still needs them to be snapped down.

HTH....Congrats on your 1st FluffyMail!

Re: Got my first fluffy mail today! need help!

Ok since I sold these to you I'll include a little tutorial on the 3sr It confused the heck out of me at first but once I got the hang of it they have become my favorite. My dd is 1 year old about 21 lbs. These are the best pictures I could get because the model was wiggling everywhere. The lovely bruise on her thigh in from a unfortunate accident with her Little Mermaid riding toy last night

We use the 2nd rise setting because I like a nice low rise and it gives an awesome fit for dd's long and skinny build.

First, fold down front flap and snap onto the highest row of snaps


Next, fold snapped section in towards baby's tummy so it looks like this


Now snap to a comfortable, snug setting


For the smallest setting you just fold in down to the 2nd row in the 1st step and then fold towards babys tummy. For the largest setting you just leave the rise unsnapped. Also for the small and middle setting the soaker needs to be snapped in the setting closer to the back of the diaper. For the largest setting it gets snapped in the setting closer to the front of the diaper. Hope all that wasn't too confusing!

I think I got it on right. But it did leave some red marks on her thighs.. the picture showed one button left in between the tabs so I moved to next button, two buttons left in between, it became more loose?

Let me know?

Thanks!!

Looks good If it leaves red marks on her legs then I would leave it on the looser snap.

Would anyone be kind enough to do a tutorial with a newborn with one of these?
