Okay, those of you with Honeyboys:<br><br>
Could you do me a favor?<br><br>
I have three "medium" Honeyboys now by two different wahms--all won on eBay. Two are the same size, and one is larger. Could anyone with a medium give me the measurement from tab to tab across the back of the diaper? I'm wondering if the larger "medium" isn't, in fact, a large--then again, maybe my other "mediums" aren't in fact mediums..<br><br>
The larger one also doesn't seem to have the same amount of "stretch" in the elastic. It will only stretch about an inch. Is this normal? My other two have a tighter elastic and fit really snugly across the back.<br><br>
TIA!<br><br>

DS is sleeping right now, so I can't get you the measurements of the ones I purchased from Simple Good Diapers. However, I purchased the pattern to make my own and the medium is about 14 1/2 inches from wing-to-wing (not including the tabs).<br>
As far as the stretch goes, that all depends on how the elastic was added to the diaper and will vary by WAHM.<br>

Hmm.. that's about the size across the back of mine. It just doesn't make sense to me, though.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: My ds is 30lbs (with chucky thighs and all) and the smaller mediums fit him like a glove, but this one will definately be too large. (Not that it's a big deal--he'll grow into it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ).<br><br>
It's 8" wide through the gusset, and about 19" long fron middle-front to middle-back. So this is a medium?<br><br>
I'll have to go and measure the other one.. :LOL<br><br>
Is there any place online that gives the measurements (not the weight ranges) for the different sizes?<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>

K my large is 12 1/2 unstretched across the back, 16 1/2 stretched. (not including tabs, which add another 4 in) 21 in from back to front.<br><br>
My med are 11 1/2 unstretched across the back, and 15 stretched (again not including tabs) and about 18 1/2 from back to front.<br><br>
The large is too big for my 26 lb er at the moment, but the meds fit him great!<br><br>
Hope this helps!

Super! Thanks so much! It sounds like my larger dipe is definately a medium, then--albeit with ess stretch through the back than yours (mine's about 13.5" unstretched).<br><br>
I'll have to go measure my smaller mediums, as it looks like they may be the ones with the discrepancy!<br><br>

But both of the ones I measured are from the same WAHM (Simply Good Diapers) all but one of the HB's I have are from her, so I figured they would be pretty consistant in sizing.

The one I have that is *definately* a medium (thanks for everyone's help, of course <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">), is by Bums-a-Daisy (orangenappy on eBay) and the other two are by MamaLove (saharamama on eBay). They are all very well made and I'm very happy with them--just confused by the very different sizes! :LOL<br><br>

It makes me feel great everytime I see a thumbs up for a Canadian WAHM. Way to go Dara & Jes!
