I love our BG pockets (we have a few). ¬†But the snaps on the front, now that it is unsnapped, rub and chafe my poor 9-mo-old chunky monkey's thighs! ¬†I am looking for something that doesn't have those snaps on it, so I'm guessing something that isn't one-sized. ¬†I do have Bummis covers and prefolds and that works well, except that my DH wants something more user-friendly/idiot-proof¬†for him to use, meaning pockets or AIO or something. ¬†
Does anyone have a recommendation of something to try? ¬†Oh, and it has to have a pretty long rise - I have a couple of BestBottoms and like them except that the rise is really almost too short!
Totally out of the baby diaper loop here, although I'd love another little¬†to be back in the loop ;) ! But bumping up your post so hopefully someone who can help can see this!

I cloth diapered my youngest son after he was about a year old.¬† He was a chunky monkey as well.¬† My favorite diaper was the Happy Heinys as it had a full coverage rise and it worked so well with his chunky legs.¬† This was 10 years ago and they were just bringing in the OS diapers.¬† I was so very disappointed when they stopped making the¬†sized diapers completely.¬† Every¬†once in a while you can find them on¬†places like ebay.¬† ¬†I will be interested to see if you get any recommendations as I am not a fan of all the snaps on the OS diapers.¬† It just detracts from the cute factor for me.
We used FuzziBunz in size small which I quite liked. Then switched to one-size diapers with the snap down rise so I didn't get to try out the bigger sizes, but the smalls were not newborn sized so DD had some chunky thighs then already.
FuzziBunz do also have a one-size diaper that is adjusted with internal elastic (it has buttons like some toddler pants) to adjust so no snaps on the front. Their one-size diapers do not have a very high rise but I'll bet there are other one-size diapers that use the adjustable elastic instead of snaps.
Ola - thanks for the note on the FuzziBunz One Size Elite Diapers.¬† They look really interesting.¬† I did not like them with my ds as much as the Happy Heinys because I prefer velcro over snaps and I liked the higher rise on the HH¬†but the FuzziBunz never leaked on him.¬† I might try this one in one of the minky edition if they still have them after I¬†am comfortable that¬†this baby will stick :-)
