Me neither Kristin!
: Because my dd seems to have a short rise also. But I have bought things that are too short for her, so I think maybe I'm measuring wrong.
I always thought you started at the belly button, went betwen the legs and up to mid back or wherever you would want the dipe to rest. And that is without a diaper for a fitted, over your fav dipes for a cover. But I pull the measuring tape snug against her crotch when measuring for a fitted, and am wondering if I should let it dangle out some, since a fitted would hang down from her crotch some, kwim? Maybe this is why I keep measuring her smaller than she is, it seems. It's been the same for ds, I've measured his rise, and it hasn't seemed that big, but then I look at measurments of dipes I own that are too short in the rise for him, but shouldn't be, according to how I measure him.
Sorry to highjack your question. I have been confused about this myself and have meant to ask.
