Rocket Bottoms Side Snap - Newborn

About the pattern:
This is a paid pattern for a side snapping diaper with front elastic.  The pattern comes in sizes NB, S, M and L and can be used for fitted diapers, pockets, covers or all-in-one/twos.

My test diaper:
I sewed up a stretchy fitted with this pattern and I really like the short stretch of front elastic.  It seems like it is just enough to allow you to customize the fit a little better.  Here are some pictures of the diaper:

Overall opinion:
This diaper is so cute!  I really like the size of this diaper; it is small but has a nice rise, the crotch is narrow; but not too narrow and the four snap settings and front elastic provide a lot of adjustability.  I used this pattern in size Large for my daughter and loved it for her.

Fit update:
Before umbilical cord falls off:
At around 8.5 lbs, this diaper fit nicely, but is quite narrow through the crotch; especially for a boy.  My son was near the largest snap settings though; so if making this diaper for a smaller baby, the narrow crotch may be more in proportion to the baby.  There is no umbilical snap/scoop on this diaper, but tucking the front down below the cord worked really well because the front elastic helped hold it in place.

Action shots:

2 weeks, ~9.5 pounds: I had to retire this diaper because the narrow crotch caused him to outgrow it quickly.  I think this diaper is meant for a much smaller newborn.
