Hey there! So I am a newbie to cd'ing and I just got my stash in the mail yeaterday and washed everything. I am getting the hand of folding the prefolds and using the snappi, but am still a little unsure of the fit. I don't think I am getting the diaper on tight enough because it gaps near the thigh. My daughter had a huge poop and it blew out into the cover. Any advice? I have looked over the diaper folding instructions on punkinbutt and am trying to follow those instructions. Thanks ahead of time!<br><br>

One way to help get a snug fit around the thighs is to pull it up in front after you snappi it.<br>
We almost always have a little poop leak into covers, though, even with a very snug fit with a bikini twisted prefold. It always loosens after he pees (the fibers stretch when wet) and moves around. It's contained about 40% of the time, I'd say.
