Don’t Catch the Meaty Thighs!

Cloth Diapers

I love me some chunky baby thighs! But, they are a hazard.

Consider yourself warned.

Use extreme caution when snapping a SIDE SNAP cloth diaper on your meaty thighed baby.

You know what. Now that I think of it I have my memories all wrong.

I was inspired to write this post because of an almost incident this morning.  I was putting a Grasshopper AIO on Camden (size M when he actually needs a L) and carefully trying to snap the hip snap without pinching his skin.

I wouldn’t have been on alert about this if I hadn’t previously snapped skin.  I was thinking it was with Camden (it probably did happen) but the memory I was thinking of was when I snapped Sterling’s skin.

WAAHHHH! It was terrible.  Sterling is a super skinny chicken legged kid and yet I still managed to get him snapped.


Now I realize that I am a rare breed.  I am able to create an accident where normal people simply accomplish the task.

However, it is my duty to inform you of all things cloth diaper related.

In other news. Have you ever heard of the ABC Kids Expo?

Basically, that’s where all the new and exciting products are launched, included cloth diapers!

I’ve heard a few things here and there and I’ll happily share them with you:

And many more you will hear about in the coming weeks.

    Just wanted to comment n say that the Swaddlebees website has been updated (either today, or in the last couple of days) with the Newborn Simplex diaper :D

    This is crazy that I read this now, because after over 2 years cloth diapering our son with no incidents, I pinched him today for the first time while putting on his Jamtots Berryplush. We have been working on potty training, and while normally I would change him on his changing pad, I have sometimes been putting on a clean diaper with him standing up (not an easy thing for me) after we try the potty, and this time I guess I was being a little too quick and careless. I felt so bad, poor guy :( I really like the side-snapping for the fit and I prefer those over any other diapers we have, so we’ll keep using them but just be a little more careful!

    Don’t worry, your little one won’t remember… Apparently when I was a baby my mom stuck a pin all the way through my thigh. I was fine but she was nervous when changing me for weeks.

    Thanks for the update on the expo! It sounds awesome!


  5. Audrey Says:

    Gosh! I didn’t realize that could happen! How upsetting that must have been for both mom and baby! Thank you very much for the warning!

    My hubby snapped my little man’s skin with an applecheeks and I did it with a simplex. We felt so bad.

    OMG, I have so done this, and my son doesn’t even have chunky thighs :( LOL It was his night nappy too, so it wasn’t exactly good way to sooth him to sleep.

    I wish I had seen this sooner! I pinched my little guy with an Applecheeks last week. Talk about being a rare breed, Applecheeks isn’t even side snapping!

    I actually like side snappers better for my chunky thighed baby. I find I can adjust the leg perfectly while still having it fit him around the waist.

    I really don’t like side snapping diapers for this reason!

    I have also snapped my little guy with the grovia AIO side snapping diapers. It was horrible, I felt so terrible! He was a chunky thighed little monkey at the time. I am now super cautious when I put side snapping diapers on. So don’t feel bad I am a rare breed as well ;)
