Changing snap size for smaller nappies

Post by devil_ness » Thu Sep 06, 2007 2:01 pm

Hi all - yes me again !!!!

Just wondering when I make my S and M nappies - do I use a smaller snap? I am using 20 atm on the L one for my 19mo

The only time I've seen smaller snaps on nappies was for the snap in soaker in fitteds. I don't think it'd make much difference, and it saves having to get a smaller die set!

I made some NB/S nappies with size 16 snaps. Found them too fiddly to use in those sleep-deprived days, much preferred the size 20s.
