I need a rise measurement, please. My still in the womb nephew and I thank you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Thinking an 18 inch waist with a drawstring?

Not sure what you're making so I hth.<br>
The measurements below are based upon a pair of longies for my slightly larger than average 5 month old ds. They fit him really well over a kissaluvs fitted with a doubler or a snappied prefold.<br><br>
8.5" front rise<br>
10" rear rise (3 short rows in the rear)<br>
18" waist<br>
35" tie<br>
I make ties extra long as ds has been pulling on the strings of his longies/shorties so I now double tie and need the longer tie. I also like making an extra long tie that can be used for more than one size. I just take the tie out of a too small pair of longies and put it into the next size.

It is so drastically different from child to child. At 6 mos, my guy had a 19 inch hip, an 18 inch rise and a 9 inch inseam (over a Goodmama OS dipe). But, he's majorly skinny.<br><br>
I'll say though that a too-long rise is definitely preferable to a too short one. I have some that come halfway up his belly, which is fine by me - they're less likely to fall off.

Which makes it hard to knit for people not born yet! His half brother was 9 lbs at birth, so I'm erring on the big side.<br><br>
I'll probably be using pear's longie pattern.<br><br>
Thanks for the measurements! I've switched computers and forgot to save my bookmarked page w/ avg baby measurements.
