Cloth Diapers: How to Fudge-Fit a Sherpa Fitted

I have had the dilemma before.
What do you do when your sized fitted diaper is just a tad bit too big?
How can you stretch your dollar just a little bit further while buying the best organic fabric diaper?
What do you do if your kid falls in between sizes on the sized fitted diaper?

I have a solution that I call Fudge-fitting.  Cute huh?  With all those yucky connotations and all.

It's not perfect, but it will do and it works in three easy steps.

1. Turn diaper "wrong" side out.
2. Fold down the rise to expose the snaps
3. Fold or twist the wings to snap the diaper closed.

This method will shorten up the rise and take up the legs to approximately the next smallest size.  Then you can use them the "correct" way when your kiddo gains a few lb's.  Another helpful tip - to prevent staining on the "outside" of the diaper if you plan on wearing them coverless in the future, you can lay down a liner or insert inside the diaper.

Happy Diapering!
