Which body shaping do I want over prefolds? Baby isn't here yet so I have no idea how big his/her bum is going to be. I know that the increases AND short rows are generous even over Skye's voluminous tots bots- just short rows? Maybe?<br><br>
PLEASE HELP ME!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

So that's one vote for each? Thanks, ladies, that's a help <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
OMM, have you got any pictures of your short rows you want to share? Say, on cute tiny newborn butts? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"> Congratulations!

For a newborn/small i would just do short rows <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Nope......its only been recently I've fallen in lovewith short rows and thats only because they were garter and sooooooo simple! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v428/Lizabethian/Sephirah/Covermeup.jpg" target="_blank">I do have this though!</a> Those are newborn Picky Pants shorts with backside increases only with a darling diaper underneath (at least I think that's what it is...JenninSeattle made it for my first DD and I cant' remember). I'm pretty sure it's a newborn sized diaper. It fits perfectly over it.<br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v428/Lizabethian/Knitting%20and%20sewing/Backview.jpg" target="_blank">And here is another one</a> but on my two year old (before she potty trained). Again Picky Pants with backside increases only. Those are size small. The diaper under there is a Dappi. Even though I use mostly prefolds I dont think I have ever taken a picture with a prefold under the cover. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I do just short rows. The increases might be helpful down the line if you have one of those full buddha bellied babes that wears things slung under the belly (think beer belly but way cuter!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) But newborns tend to have that frog shape and shortrows tend to be plenty of space for diaper (and btw, both my kids have generous booties under their dipes!)<br><br>
HTH!

I think short rows it is... though mostly because it's a non-variegated yarn. DH keeps telling me this is going to be another 14lber, so s/he probably won't be in newborn anythings for long.

yes, the increases were designed specifically for that buddah belly. Even more specifically, for my buddah belly guy with his kissaluvs (which are WAY low in the front)

They work brilliantly over BTP nappies as well, btw. Skye wore them over her totsbots- which you can fold down in front to make them fit tiny people- with no problems.<br>
Milkydoula, yep, Alex was 14lb 2 oz and an incredibly easy birth. Ironically, it was my 8lber who had shoulder dystocia <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">.
