How to Measure your Baby for Nappies and Training Pants.
How to Measure the Rise – The rise measurement is the distance from the front waist through the crotch to the back waistline. To measure the rise for a nappy you should measure your baby or toddler over a nappy from the top of the nappy through the crotch to the back of the nappy (to top of elastics). To measure for a nappy measure your baby, without a nappy, from just below the belly button, or where the nappy would usually sit, through to the back waistline. You can use this to measure for fitted nappies, training pants, all-in-ones or pocket nappies.
How to Measure Waist – Waist measurements are measured at the natural waistline. When a nappy description gives an Xcm to Xcm measurement, the smallest measurement is with the nappy/training pant fastened on the smallest setting and the elastic relaxed. The largest measurement is with the nappy fastened on the largest setting and the elastic lightly stretched.
How to Measure Legs – Measure diagonally from where the nappy or cover will sit on the outer thigh, through the inner thigh and back up. The settings apply as per waist measurements, smallest is with nappy or cover fastened on the smallest setting and largest on the largest setting.
Firstly, check the weight range of your baby, then check the measurements from there.
