Hi there! I am new to the world of CD. I have recently purchased some Bummis covers, some cpf's, and an AIO from Little Lambs. It just seems like Maggie is too bulky when I use these on her. I have some wool soakers on the way- thought I would see if they're any better in the bulkiness department. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! TIA

Bumkins AIOs are very trim. They are not the most absorbent, but work if you have a light or medium wetter.

Some fitted diapers are also trim, I'm sure you'll get some good suggestions!

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right

IMO, its a trade off. It's very hard to have trim and absorbant. I would rather keep my babe in soft fitteds with no cover when we're around the house, but at the same time i dont want to spend my days covered in pee. So i opt for a really absorbant diaper, fitteds from www.lucyshopechest.com, and these would be fine and not too bulky for me with a wool soaker, but not with a wool cover--much too bulky. If you want a trimmer diaper you'll have to deal with less absorbancy. The trimmest diaper i have is a hemp fitted with knit print from www.darlingdiapers.com and it wouldn't be too bulky with a wool cover, even less with a wool soaker like a little turtle knit or even some bummis pull on.

I think hemp is very trim and very absorbant. Try hemp lay-ins or hemp fitteds Good luck!

Here are my suggestions:

Regular CPF (6-Ply)
Baby Greens Hemp One-Size
Sugar Peas Size 1

These work for my dd. She is a petite 22lb 18 month old.

My favorites for trimness are Bumkins AIOs, Chumbas Super-Trim AIOs, and Happy Heinys stuffed with a Joey Bunz.

We just tried the bumkins aio's today and they look just like sposies! Everyone keeps telling me to try the infant 4x6x4 cpf in her bumkin wraps so they aren't so puffy, so I'm going to order some today. I'm with you. I HATE the puffy! I'd rather change her more often.
