Help Tight elastic, fixable?!

The elastic on my OS diapers (bought not made by me) are too tight, how can I fix this? It is leaving red marks on DS lower back. I have been putting a wash cloth in between the diaper and DS, it helps but not that much. It's been really stressing me out...I'm so frustrated I may switch him back to disposables...

I would open up the back seam above the elastic and replace it with a longer piece.  Tack down the ends of the elastic and turn the seam back in and topstitch closed.

Ok I'll try that, thanks for the advice! So the longer the elastic, the looser?
