Replacing elastics in cloth diapers – The Cloth Option
For most brands of one sized diapers you will cut the elastic to 4 ½ inches long. A few brands, such as Nicki’s and Imagine, use 5 inch leg elastics. For smaller sized diapers we usually cut the new elastics to 4 inches; for larger sized diapers we cut to 5 inches. Some of us use 4 inch elastic on diapers with really soft gussets.
