Wing Droop

Have you ever heard the term wing droop used to describe cloth diapers? Curious what it is?


This is a picture of wing droop. It is when the sides of the diaper aren't held up and fall below the waist.  It can also be caused by a diaper being too large.  Wing droop can cause leaks. The wing droop in the above picture is caused by the diaper being too big. Noah is wearing a Fuzzibunz Perfect Size in medium. He still hasn't quite grown into it despite being well within the size range. It gaps at the legs and we have serious wing droop when he wears it! 

You can prevent wing droop by buying diapers that fit better or have hip snaps! Side snapping diapers are another great option! Some of my favorite diapers that never give me wing droop are Knickernappies or Swaddlebees Simplex 2.0.

Have you ever experienced wing droop?

  1. My baby girl is about 18 lbs and still fits perfectly into the Fuzzibunz size Small. I bought a Medium just last week and I'm afraid that it will be too big. How much does Noah weigh?

    1. Hi Maria! Noah is about 22-23 pounds. He's tall, so not chunky. These are still really lose on the legs and I'm having to snap them on the smallest setting. I don't know when they'll fit right!

    2. Hi Jenny, it sure sounds like my baby girl will not fit into these for a long time. I have the option of returning it, but after paying for shipping it seems I'm better off just keeping it and see if it will eventually fit.

  2. Ok, maybe this is my problem. We just bought my daughter some fuzzibunz size large (which should fit from 25-45 lbs)but we're having serious wing droopage no matter how I fasten them. Most of our OS are getting too small (with the exception of just a few brands)so I had hoped these would be a solution, but at 30 lbs it seems they still do not quite fit her.

    1. Hi Susan! Thank you for your comment. I have to say, that even at 25 lbs, the medium is still a bit big for my son! I suggest talking to Mary at Lovely Eco Chic! She has been testing out all the bigger options on her preschooler! Good luck!
