How your cloth diapering experience will depend a lot on getting the fit right.

Wearing cloth diapers is quite simple. However, a few tips can ensure the perfect fit for your baby and thus a brilliant performance by the cloth diapers.

So here are a few tips on how to fit a cloth diaper on your baby –

Size: There are 4 size options in Superbottoms regular size diapers and 3 size options in the newborn diapers. You can watch on how to size the cloth diapers in this video here.

Size the cloth diaper ideally before you put in on your baby. That way, it is easy to place the soaker in the diaper.

You may have to try 1-2 sizes before finding the ideal size.

The size should be such that there should be no gap between thigh and elastic. A gap may cause leaking of the cloth diaper. At the same time, it should not be so tight that it would leave deep red marks on the leg.

Do note that light marks, such as the marks we get from socks are perfectly okay.

Elastic placement: Positioning the elastic in the leg crease helps in getting the most comfortable fit.

When a diaper is worn, just pull the thigh elastics in the leg joint region as shown in the picture below.

Waist snap closure: Closing snaps around the waist should follow the same rule – No gap around back. However, a 1 finger gap in front of tummy is completely okay.

If putting on the diaper on your active baby seems like a challenge, you can try giving the baby a favorite toy, or singing a rhyme the baby enjoys, for a few seconds until the diaper is on.
