please HELP me love my MEOS!!

I just bought one to try out in hopes of getting the rest of the colors. I hear so many of you mamas rave about them & they do hold a lot but I just can't get a good fit I fold down the rise and it comes unfolded when my DD is walking around. I don't fold it and I get wing droop and gaps in her legs. What am I ding wrong Anyone have similar issues??

I can't help for days, but I use them at night. I put extra prefolds or doublers under the snap in stay dry liner, and put it under a fleece cover...bulky but gets the job done.
I did buy them with the intention of loving them during the day, but it never worked out for us either...

I put them on inside out so that you have to snap the wings under the fold down. It works like a charm! I do this when my little guy is going coverless around the house with no problems.

I love meos but I had the same problem with dd2.

You can also fold the back down instead of the front. Or if you have snap pliers, you can put two snaps on the front to keep the rise from unfolding.

They are terrible for DD. I'm hoping they will fit better on this next one. For now we just use them at night with a small prefold trifolded in them. I wanted to love them but I'm not feeling the love!

I did fold the back down and it worked ok. I didn't put the rise snaps on because I didn't know about snap pliers yet. I saw a picture of a meos that someone had put rise snaps on. You'd need to use the long prong size 20 kam snaps since the material is quite thick.
