I'm looking for a handful of inexpensive fitteds to supplement our flats and prefolds, and some new covers. Ds is a big 5mo - tall and with chubby thighs. I like the convenience of velcro, but snaps/snappies are fine too. We ec part-time, so I'd prefer something that feels wet. Dd was out of dipes at 14mo, and I'm guessing a similar timeline for ds. It'd be awesome if whatever we find could last till then!<br><br>
We loved these in velcro, but ds has outgrown his and it looks like they're not making velcro anymore and they won't have larges until dec <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><a href="http://greenmountaindiapers.com/workhorse.htm" target="_blank">http://greenmountaindiapers.com/workhorse.htm</a><br><br>
Any ideas?

I've been looking into snugglebottoms from babybunz.com. They have velcro closures and are the cheapest I have seen - medium (for 16-22lbs) run $27 for 6 ($4.50 each) or larges (18+lbs) are $29/6 ($4.83 each). They have other sizes I don't know how big you little guy is. They have a sample tab that will allow you to buy only 1 to try it instead of 6 at once.<br><br>
I also posted here about gigglebritches.com fitted diapers to see if anyone has tried them but they do not have closures but have pocket for stuffing and I have not seen that on a fitted prefold - those are $24/3 ($8 each). However, this site also sells the OsoCozy for $9.75 each that has velcro. Unfortunately I have not tried any of them - a friend of mine highly recommended the snugglebottoms and that is mainly what I will be trying for my newborn when he/she arrives. Good luck I'll be interested if others have some ideas.

DD has very chunky thighs and the OsoCozy is great for her.<br><a href="http://www.tinybirdsorganicbabytoys.com/cgi-bin/category/PrefoldsFitteds" target="_blank">http://www.tinybirdsorganicbabytoys....refoldsFitteds</a><br>
I really love the kissaluvs organic cotton hemp but they are more expensive.<br><br>
I tried one of each and they both worked well.<br><br>
I also tried the Disana tie nappies for night time. I really like them, they are so soft! But, a lot harder to get on her because I am not good at getting a good fit yet. I use a cotton doubler with it and a Thirsties cover and no leaks so far. I don't use it every night, though, because it's harder and I really don't feel like it sometimes.

Thanks! It's so hard to tell in pictures which ones will fit the chunky thighs. Ds is 20+lbs, and at the top of the charts for height. Dd was heavier and shorter, and literally nothing but prefolds fit for her, so I'm a bit timid. Ds is more normally proportioned, though. Has anyone tried the snuggle bottoms on a big babe?<br><br>
One of those links has me looking at prefitteds. That might be a fun sewing project, and would end up with roughly my mental image of what I'm looking for. I worry about increasing the drying time though!

With the Tiny Birds site, you get free shipping. That's why I tried one of each.<br><br>
I looked at this pattern <a href="http://mayna.livejournal.com/198548.html" target="_blank">http://mayna.livejournal.com/198548.html</a> but I think it might be beyond my very limited sewing skills. I might try it though because I really wanted the "work horse" diapers.

Ooh, I just discovered contours. I think that's exactly what I'm looking for! What are the drawbacks of no elastic? Is it mostly poop messes? Cause poopy diapers are rare...<br><br>
Any favorites? I'm eyeing the kissaluvs or else easy/hyenacart <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

My DS is a similar build to yours - I find Mother-ease one-size to work very well.<br><br>
I have used Imse Vimse contours with success and I have a friend who swears by her Kissaluvs contours.
