I have some diaper covers that I got off ebay, but I wanted to know a good place to diaper covers for skinny kids. As the ones I have for her leak around the legs. They might be for bigger than 10lbs babies too. IYKWIM. I can't remember if the smaller poundage # was closer to 13-15 lbs for these. Any help would be great. I would prefer to stay away from plastic pants if possible. TIA

How much does she weigh now? Would you be willing to try nylon pull on pants? I love the dappi covers. My 3 year old has skinny thighs and they have always worked on him. They also work great on Ryan who is very skinny right now.

I also bet that small bummis covers would work on her. They seem better for skinny kids than proraps do and they fit from 8-15lbs.

I think I bought the dappi covers from cottonbabies and the bummis from either no pins for baby or nickiesdiapers(free shipping for both).

What brands have you tried that leak? Also, do you have a preference for pull-on or wraps?

I wonder how pull-on nylon covers like Alexis feather-lites would work for you. I believe I have heard they are good for thin legs. Unfortunately the company quit making them, so you have to get them used. Litewraps also makes a pull-on nylon cover, but I don't know if the cut is the same. The nice thing about nylon is they are more breathable than pul, plus they are cheap. Naturalbabies sells the LiteWraps pull-ons:
