Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

Here's my sweetipie in her Alva! I LOVE these diapers! They are so trim and fit so well. She's 18 months, 34" tall and weighs 22 lbs. or so.

I just don't get it... How come I'm getting leg gaps galore with the alva's I got in the coop? You all have such a great fit! Not fair!

(fwiw, I am stuffing them with pad folded flats, he is 18 months and around 27 pounds)

My DS weighs a couple of lbs less and is ~33 inches tall. He is on the smallest or second smallest hip snaps and almost smallest waist snaps. Are you fastening them as.tight as you can and still getting gaps?

Oh no! So sorry you're having a problem with the fit. I just got my first alva (bamboo) and it fits FANTASTIC! He's over 26lbs and 31 inches long at 9 months. These are super gentle on his thunder thighs. I'm ordering more through a co-op asap! Here's a pic of him wearing it and playing with his other clean diapers.

I played around with all combos yesterday and still got gaps. What rise are you using for your LO?

I have one snap on the rise done and then I think the waist maybe has one button showing or none. Where is it gapping, the legs or the waist?

And I am loving all these pics and these diapers!!!

Gaps are around his legs. They are worse with the suede cloth inners. I will take a pic with the next diaper change

I use the highest rise because he has a long rise. We could use the middle rise too.

Bummer, to me I would think your LO just has thinner thighs and it won't get tight enough. All of my suede cloth Alva's are bigger than my fleece, so that would explain why the gaps are worse with suede cloth. But you might be able to stuff it with something thicker and have less gaps? Can't wait to see the pic! I will check back

Ok, so I put a SC alva on the middle rise and 2nd leg snap and only 1 or 2 snaps showing on the waist and there was no gapping when I put it on him. I took pics but wont be able to upload them until nap time. My worry is he will have gaps after he moves around in it because his waist is so skinny and he is a very active toddler. I will take pics before I change again if it does gap.

Thanks!
