Kissaluvs answers to frequently asked questions
Diapers - Fit
Do Kissaluvs diapers fit chubby babies / babies with fat thighs / skinny babies? Are the sizes listed really accurate?
Weight ranges for diapers are never perfectly accurate, as all babies differ in build. Very round babies will size up sooner than thinner babies, for example. Our weight ranges are based on feedback from customers.
We receive comments all the time from people saying, "These are perfect for my thin-legged girl!" and "I'm so glad someone makes diapers for chubby thighs!" We attribute the wide ranging fit to the stretchy knit fabrics and generous elastic in Kissaluvs diapers. We also include cross-over snaps in all sizes for especially thin babies.
Probably the very best answer is to see what other customers have told us ... there's a special "Fit" section on our Feedback page, and we are compiling a Photo Gallery to show the diapers in actual use on real kiddos.
Many babies will fit into two sizes at once. If you can get a good fit (leg fit is critical in fitted diapers) in the larger size, we suggest erring on the large side, even if the diaper looks a little big just now. The larger size will fit much longer, maximizing its value and saving you money in the long-run. Plus, the added fabric inherent in a larger diaper adds absorbency.
The rise in Kissaluvs diapers looks deceptively low at first. They are designed to ride at the waist in the back and between the waist and hip in front. We think that makes a more natural, comfortable fit and helps ensure a good leg fit by not artificially raising the rise and allowing room for "drooping" as baby moves around in the diaper.

My baby is thin and most diapers tend to sag in front or at the legs. Is that a problem with Kissaluvs diapers, too?
Generally not, for two reasons. First of all, we use a generous amount of premium elastic; it's gentle, but enthusiastic. Good elastic does wonders for a good fit!
Second, the current snap design allows you to hold up more of the front of the diaper than most others. The snaps are positioned so you can skip a waist snap when attaching the diaper. Skipping a waist snap on each side means you get a wider area "held up" at the front of the diaper, preventing the sides from drooping. Click here to see what we mean.
Officially, it fits most babies from 8-40lbs. At the smallest setting, the cover will fit babies even smaller than 8 pounds, but it will be a tad bulky. Which is usually not an issue with small babies as they don’t tend to move around at that age.
Yes. The cover is designed to reduce bulk between legs at the crotch area at the larger settings. The snaps are placed so it widens up on top where you need it, as the sizing grows. Trust us!
The gussets are wider which ensure a snug grip around the legs- key to keeping everything contained in. And they are elasticized with a gentle but enthusiastic elastic. No wimpy fold-over elastic stuff for us!

It is softest wool you will find in covers. Sourced from the belly of the sheep (not the top coat which yields stiffer yarn), our wool has extremely fine fiber which helps the cover repel moisture a lot better and reduces the need to lanolize.
