Thanks to Elke for this Frugal Baby Tip!
I wanted to share something I thought was interesting. I too used to think holy cow that can't possibly be comfortable to have all that bulk across the middle. But my children are such heavy wetters that I have always needed a bit of bulk there. Anyhow when laughing about this with my friend who is a pediatritian he reassured me that in all actuality it is *good* for them.
Newborns and smaller babies actually have an immature hip socket (makes sense since the rest of them is pretty immature too)... and it benefits the hips to have the legs held in that flexed out ("abducted") position as it "forces" the ball into the socket and helps with proper developement of the socket. And for babies that are born with congenital hip dysplasia... that is actuallly the treatment... a brace OR thick double or triple diapering!!!
