I would like a good wool cover that would fit my long, skinny nearly 5 month old. The Imse Vimse is close, but the legs holes are too small. The Stacinator has to short a rise, as does the righteous baby snap cover. With ds, I loved the Toot Sweet Baby covers, but those are no loner being made. Any ideas?

Take a look at the pull-on covers at GreenMountainDiapers:

I really like Kozy Wool. My 6 mo is still in a small, but we use some mediums to cover the rise of OS dipes. They have a drawstring, so they'll stay up even when they're too big.

For wrap style, we have some Sugar Peas, but the fit really depends on the dipe - it covers some of them nicely and some of them it doesn't.

And then I have mostly hand-knits that I've traded for. I always request a drawstring, since otherwise they won't stay up. I do have some Babyology's, but haven't tried them yet since the Mediums are HUGE on my skinny little guy.

the disana pull on (like on the GMD link PP posted) would be great I think. My ds is also long and somewhat skinny and the disana was great for him (now if only I hadn't felted it to preemie sized ) even if the disana seems a little big it's still bulletproof
