    as in stuffed to much where it is too big.:blush:
    My little Squeak is now almost 5 weeks now..as of last week she wakes up with wet from her night rest..she has always slept about 6-7 hours at night and no problem with a wet nappy as I always put a bamboo liner in. Well today I have experemented with putting her btp nappies..she has only so far fit in a mini la la so far.. that worked fine today and tonight I have put her in a Pop In that has a stay dri night insert ( I think it is called). I bought these nappies specifically for her to wear during the nights..and now she has finally fit into it...well fit into it is a overstatement..yes the nappy fits but her bum is so HUGE..her legs are nearly sticking out ..haha not all the way out of course..its just so big and weired looking..:haha:
    does this do any damage? She seems comfortable..I THINK:blush:
    but well she isnt crying or winging..
    so what do you ladies think..or should i take a photo to show you?

    Night nappies are always very bulky as you have to boost so much, but the bulk is actually good for baby's hip development, as it holds the legs further apart. As long as it doesn't upset the baby, there's absolutely no need to worry about it;)
