fb don't fit anymore? wha?

my medium fb's have always fit great on DS. he usually wears them on the tightest waist snap and second loosest thigh snap.

all of a sudden, now there are gaping holes in the thighs when he wakes up from his nap and there's pee all over. what i suspect might be happening is that he has grown a buddha belly, it's pushing the front down, and the sides are coming out. is this the dreaded wing droop phenonema? anything i can do to make them fit?

all his other dipes seem to fit fine still. the only other front snap ones are his preston's pockets, and (aside from the ones that are too big anyway) they still fit fine.

DD's in-between sm. and med, so I pull the wings up so they're sticking 1.5-2" out the top of the FB--AND we pair them w/ wool and only use them at night because they leak too much if those wings are allowed to slip.
Who what pockets DON'T have this problem? Preston's. Fit like a glove!

That's funny this topic has come up because it's been periodically happening to my DS recently, and he is on the tightest snap setting for both waist and thigh.

I have a skinny minnie and I had to add a set of "hip snaps" on all our FB's. It makes them harder to resell, but, oh well! We don't have leaks anymore. It sucks cause they cost so dang much and then have to be altered which voids the warranty... Sorry momma!

Re: fb don't fit anymore? wha?

We have the same problem with our petites. I have them on the 2nd tightest setting, and so the wings drop down at the sides and leave the gapping legs.

I only use them at night now, and I had to pick up more dipes that were fitting better. I'm hoping they will fit again when he gets taller or puts on a little weight, so I don't have to tighten them up as tight. I've tried varying the snaps, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Yet another reason to go with WAHM pockets over FBs...

When that happened, we went to side snap diapers and they worked *wonderfully*. Now I use mostly flats!
