Adding rise snaps to one-size diapers/covers, advice please!

Has anyone here done this? Added another row of snaps to the rise to make branded one-size diapers fit newborns? Any tips? (besides making sure the snaps match up!)

Does PUL need to be sealed after adding snaps or it that more precautionary or even needless?

Would it probably work to add the additional row of rise snaps at the edge of the inner layer of PUL (i.e. the snaps added are half on/half off the inner PUL) or is it definitely better to make sure the snaps have two layers of PUL (i.e. adding in scrap PUL).

I'm helping both a sister and a sister-in-law get ready for their babies and build/add to stashes, and my main concern are the one-size covers I'm getting... I have snap pliers but have barely used them yet, so I'm a bit apprehensive. :P

it is definitely possible as described above, but will make for a very wide crotch on a diaper for a newborn... you might be better served with 4-6 true newborn size covers

I added rise snaps to some Econobum covers and they worked fine with a newbie.
