Can someone help?

I bought some ubcpf-toddler for my kids, and I can get them to fit on my daughter ok, but am having problems getting them to stay snug on my 25lb 1y/o
Are they too big for him? or am I doing something wrong? Is there a fold that will work well with them if they are too big?
If you guys think they are too big, does anyone have a premium I can buy to try?

Are they falling off not snug or are they staying up but there are gaps? What folds have you already tried, maybe if you list what doesn't work one of us can find something that does .

Well you'll need to fold some down in the front or back for your one year old. Here are my favorite folds:

Traditional Jelly Roll Fold
Side Pinning Jelly Roll Fold
Bikini Twist with a fleece liner
Traditional Bikini Twist

The last 3 I did myself with Nathan for the pictoral.

Also this site is nice: http://www.thediaperhyena.com/diaper_folding101.htm

and this site: http://mywebpages.comcast.net/kfegelman/pf_folds.html

Oh I forgot to list the folds I tried....
I have done angel wrap, and a crappy twist, there were gaps in the legs, but it stayed up. I pinned as tight as I could. The newspaper worked well on my dd...

Did you check out my side pinning jelly roll fold above? It's super tight on the legs when pinned.

I had a lot of success w/the bikini fold when I used toddler pf's on Ross.

Let me understand this right, you are using a Toddler UBCPF on a 13 month old? I would think that would be really bulky on him . I just started to use premium CPFs on Ethan when he was 17 months old. Maybe if you got a couple of premiums to see if they would fit better.
