Is there life after Thirsties? My 26 pound 11 month old son is getting too big for the size two in the duo. He still might fit in the Large size in the fitted, but we only have two of those and I would like to get something that would last a little longer. For the Thirsties lovers out there, what did you switch to when they grow out of them? What diaper covers are good for big babies? I would love something affordable with snaps or a pull up that isn't vinyl.

Thanks!

These are great for big babies http://www.litewrap.com/ They are not snap but they fit really well and are a great price if you just want to try one to see if you like it.

When DD1 just needed a diaper for overnight we tried Sandy's. The size large goes to 35 pounds. I *love* Sandy's Mother-ease diapers!!! We used the Mother-ease airflow covers with them. The diapers and covers both have snaps.

Bummis Whisper Pants, which are nylon pull-ups, for about $5/each, or Dappi pull-ons, also nylon, around $5.00 for a two-pack. Both are cooler and lighter than PUL, and the leg and waist bindings are super-soft even on chunky babies, never leave red marks.
