I have the elastic set to the largest size and the poor boy still can't bend over without falling. :( They're just too tight on his waist.

 

He's not particularly chunky, but is very tall for his age (31 inches/26 lbs) ...I think the fit has something to do with the length of his torso. 

 

It kills me to have to completely replace my CD stash, but cannot stomach using disposables for another year + !  

 

What do you recommend for my tall baby boy? We've been loyal FB customers for years, but I wouldn't mind trying a new brand. I would be open to AIO or pockets. TIA!

My guess is that once he's a little older toddler, they will fit better. I had great luck with the Alva Baby or Kawaii baby pockets, and then after a few months, all the BG/FB onesizes that didn't fit from 10-15 mos....fit again! So it was like my stash doubled :) Try some inexpensive onesizes and see if those work, and I'm betting the FB will fit again soon.

Thanks, that's really good advice. I searched past threads for "low-rise" diaper options and found some suggestions, then balked at the price and figured out a way to snap the FB so they are more low cut. I just snap both of the waist snaps down on the second row. It leaves some of the lining exposed, but luckily ds doesn't seem to wet that area of the diaper often. Hopefully we can limp through for a few months with this technique!

I'd sell the OS and buy perfect size instead. I love sized FB

I actually bought and returned some size large fb, they were HUGE! That definitely did not solve the problem. Do you tink medium ss would fit until he potty trains?

I've been using Med fuzzibunz for two years. My toddler is 33 lbs. they fit on the last snap. I have one lg which fits better at this point and BG 4.0 that we wear most of the time. But those med fuzzibunz still do the trick!
