Okay, so I was totally planning to do the prefolds as soon as this baby was born. Well, we had a good laugh when we got her home from the hospital and the infant prefolds I bought were bigger than she was. Six weeks, stacks of horribly expensive disposable diapers, and almost three pounds later, she's just about big enough for the prefolds and a couple of the AIOs/pocket diapers we bought.
Problem- she's got skinny little legs. Her thighs are only slightly bigger around than her knees, which means that we can't get the prefolds tight enough around her legs to prevent ebf bowel movements from going everywhere. The covers we bought don't fit snugly around her legs either.
Is there hope? I know somebody who made me an AIO that I love and I'm thinking of just having her make me some more (and paying for them, of course). Can I make prefolds work, or am I just going to have to wait until she gets bigger? I have tried several different folds, and her bm's will leak out of every single one.
