BGs and Chubby Thighs!

DD has some serious thighs and hips and a small waist. Her BGs and Flips fit fine before but now that she's grown into the medium rise, we have quite a bit of gapping at the waist. We don't have much of an issue with leaks unless her top gets tucked into her diaper but the gapping is awkward and annoying. I've tried to snap the top row a bit tighter but it makes the fit even more strange.

Is it just an awkward stage with BGs that will pass? Any tips to cope for now? She started crawling recently so I imagine she may slim down a bit. Love my chubby girl .

this is why I love our BG Aplix diapers...because you can always get the fit right. DD had chunky thighs and a tiny waist and never had gapping issues

I wish I'd have had better luck with the aplix 4.0s with DS. They just didn't hold up like our snaps did . The fit is definitely better, though!

unfortunately that is how all the snaps fit my girl They did get marginally better once the thighs even out, but not much better.

My DD had thunder thighs and very wide hips. I just snap the bottom snap first to fit the thigh and then snap the top snap one snap closer to the center. Or if that seems to tight, then only snap one side tighter on top. I've had to do this will all my babies since chubby thighs evidently run in the family The fit is good an no leaks!

We have that issue too but I just put it on the full rise which is too long but fits ok and seems to fix any gaping.

My daughter has very chunky thighs the snaps for 4.0 are hard to do but the new elemental seems wider so fits a bit better. We have 2 aplix bg and they fit pretty well.
