I have 2 kids who have been cd. My daughter didn't graduate out of diapers until after her third birthday but my Mother-Ease One Size still fit her fine. My son, soon to be 2, has a wider pelvis and the ME fit only on the largest snap, which sometimes comes undone because the remaining top snap digs into his skin and he pulls at the diaper. During the day he'll go potty sometimes so we are down to 3-4 diapers a day. We are having problems at night though.

The only other useable diapers I have are FB, which I don't like and won't work overnight anyway because they don't hold poop. He makes a HUGE poop very early in the morning, so I need something that will contain it. As it is, the ME with the airflow cover holds most of it in but it is usually all over the cover as well as the diaper.

Oh, and I do not like fleece against his skin. He gets heat rash very easily and it is always from fleece. I've tried Little Lambs and really don't like them. In smaller sizes I've had different AIO and prefolds.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I'm only buying 3-4 total and will mainly use them overnight so cost really isn't a limiter here. Of course I'll just get one to start and make sure it works for us.

Thank you.

Toddler CPFs maybe? They are wider than Premium so they could probably fit around him. You might have to pin it though b/c Snappis might not reach.

I would go with a fitted, it will be enough to contain the poop, and you can get them also in hemo or cotton.
