Getting a good fit with OSFM cloth nappies doesn’t have to be hard. Just remember some basic tips and you’ll have perfectly fitting cloth nappies before long.
Firstly, set the size of the cloth nappy by adjusting the rise snaps on the front. The nappy should fit low and snug; like underwear.
Place your baby on the nappy. Pull the nappy up at the front, squeezing it into the underwear line.
Smooth the fabric around your baby’s tummy, You want to make sure that none of the inner is sticking out. On the smaller sizes, this can sometimes happen at the top.
Push any fabric at the rise snaps upwards.
Make sure the nappy is not too tight. There should be enough room to fit two fingers in at the front. It can be tempting to do the nappy up higher, but this can actually cause more leaks.
The nappy should fit low and snug like underwear, but not too tight.

Make sure that the inner of the nappy isn’t showing anywhere.
Push extra fabric upwards at the front.
