shrinking baby or growing diaper?

Ok Im not nuts . . . at least i don't think i am. but my son must be shrinking because I don't think FB's can grow! They fit him fine 2 days ago, they came out of the wash and DH put it on him at a party. i tried to fix it and then took him inside and tried again with him layed out flat, the legs were gaping open! It was all set to the tightest settings, WEIRD! They fit FINE afew days ago. WHen I took it off him finaly the elastic in the back had left a mark on his back too so weird.

I mesured his legs today for the first time (panicing I bougt the wrong size Berry Plush) and they were a tad more than 6 inches. Not sure whats up. Guess Ill kep an eye on him, but any suggestions so we can still use our diapers?

Yea, I had this problem on my little skinny leged guy. Pull the wings up. When you snap them, pull the wing tips up until they fit. I have to do that on a few of mine.

I wish I could see a picture of what you are talking about. I do know that babies grow fast. At 12 mos my son had 9.5" thighs. At 15 mos they are 11.5". So if you can't adjust them just right, put them down a few weeks and try again! If they are too big, they will fit soon! Also, when my DS's waist is too big I cross over the snaps... I have no idea if this was even remotly helpful...

the suggestion about the wing droop helped. I think maybe FB's are just not my favorite diaper. We only have 3. I don't seem to have this problem with other diapers, dissapointing to since I really like the colors I orderd. I guess if I sell them I will have to buy DS a new red diaper lol

we have the same prob with ours. We only have one now, (sold the rest) and we still have to cross the snaps over eachother just for ds to wear it. Oh well.

Is he starting to become mobile? If so babies often start losing their "baby fat".
