The secret of a perfect fit
The ideal nappy must be comfortable and skin-friendly, and it also has to ensure a pleasant fit. The rule of thumb is that there should be space for one or two fingers between the nappy and the baby’s belly. The reason why a nappy leaks may simply be that it doesn’t fit properly. Nappies that are either too small or too large may be the cause of insufficient moisture protection.
The choice of the right size has a decisive influence on how comfortable and leak-proof the nappy is. Parents should check for proper fit and freedom of leg movement after each growth spurt, and switch to the next largest size, if necessary. In addition to the size, it is important to keep a constant eye on the fit, since every body type poses its own specific requirements. The baby population also includes delicate princesses, lean, bean-stalk Tarzans and powerful musclemen.
In some cases, all you need to do is switch to a different nappy size, and your little sunshine will reward you with a big smile. Then, your baby can kick and move about to its heart’s content. The same applies, of course, to little explorers who are intent upon to conquering the world.
