Measuring Your Baby for Hand Made Soakers and Pants

Measure your baby with diaper or underwear that will be used most often with the soaker or pants.   If you don't have a measuring tape, use a ribbon and mark off measurement points then measure between the marks with a ruler.

Waist: measure around the baby at the belly button.

Hips: measure around the widest part of hips.

Rise: hold one end of tape on your baby's back at the top edge of the diaper then run tape between legs, up to the front to top edge of the diaper.

Thighs: measure around where the thigh meets the hip socket.

Inseam: measure along inside of leg from crotch to ankle (for long pants).
