The front of the diaper kind of droops down on the sides, near the baby's hips, so the ends start to show, underneath the part that is attached in front. It happens because the diaper is only fastened in the front. If I had it on a bigger setting - fastened out towards his hips rather than the middle of his belly - they would be held up. Does this make any sense? I've had it happen on some WAHM diapers that I have, but then others it doesn't happen, and I just don't know what it is that prevents this from happening.
