okay so this is a really silly question but I'm really not sure blush

on a nappy, should the leg cuffs be in or out???? they're like the wing bits by the legs. should they stay inside the nappy or do I pull them out to kind of fan them over the leg?? we keep getting leeks out of the legs and I can't figure out why blush

please help!!!

haha OK! but that's what I've done and it still leaks??? am I pulling it out too much??? time to go up a size??? they were completely fine until yesterday, I don't know what I'm doing wrong!! sad

or too big?! dd is 11lb so we're using size 2

Yes move up to size three.

When we got leaks we moved up a size, normally worked

Getting leaks is always our cue to go up a size. And ignore the weight size guide - tis often bollocks grin

Our 16lb dd is in size 5 (!) pampers, but this size doesn't leak which is all we care about horrendously chunky legs for a short arse

glendyllove, you really like that site - every thread you've posted on today has included a link to it (including a zombie thread from 2010)

I've alerted MN to your advertising.

A change of brand might give a better shape or fit.
We always had poo leaks up DD's back in pampers. So we switched to huggies and always had poo leaks out the legs instead hmm
We decided that newborn poo was largely uncontainable
