Should CD leave marks? How to put on?

DD gets marks, like the outline of the elastic, around her thighs. Is that ok or a sign I'm putting it on wrong?

In the BGE there is no way I could snap her all the way in like the picture of the smallest diaper setting. She is about 15 lbs and four months old. How do I know how many snaps to use? Thanks!

Re: Should CD leave marks? How to put on?

We always get marks, more often from snap diapers than from velcro. Basically you want to make sure that there are no gaps around the legs or the stomach. I know that with snaps it usually ends up a little tighter because frequently the "right spot" would be in between two snap settings and usually go tighter to prevent leaks.

If it's a one-size diaper, sometimes you can play with the rise setting to find the right fit that will allow it to be tight enough not to gap around the legs but not too tight around the stomach.

Hope that helps!

if not too deep i think you are ok. i use fuzzibunez and can adjust legs only. if looks uncomfy loosen & see what happens.

DD has chunky legs. We get red marks no matter what diapers we use. They always go away so I don't worry about it.

There's adjustable waist elastic on FBOS and FB Elites, too, not just rise elastic!

Yes, as long as they go away and don't leave bruises they are normal. DS gets them in disposables too, they are just super skinny marks because the elastic on the gussets of the disposables are so skinny!

My 26lb 11m DS get marks with everything. When in sposies.....the thin leg elastic digs way worst than cloth covers. It that puts your mind at ease. It's like when i get undressed......I have marks where my undies and jeans were.....it doesn't hurt me.
