Now that ds is in cloth I have a hard time fitting him into alot of his outfits. Some of the shortsleeve onesies (carters) work ok but the pants are harder to fit. He's 8.5 mos and 26 pounds so he's already into the 12-18 month clothes. But the pants still seem small in the tush and if I go up a size they're just too long. Are there any companies that gear their clothes towards cloth diapered babies? Also at night we've been using an aristocrat with various combos under that and just a t-shirt since it's been pretty warm but cooler weather is around the corner and I'm wondering how to fit him into a sleeper and whether he'll be too hot.

Ds is 26 lbs and wears 18-24 in most clothing, I think you're going to have to size up and shorten the legs or something.<br><br>
Hanna Andersson (the baby line) has ample tush room. I got a pair of PJs from the child line, and even though they are the same size as from the baby line (there's a bit of overlapping) there is NO diaper room. They look like hot pants. :LOL<br><br>
Also, if you look around some WAHM sites, many of them make pants/shorts/overalls for CD babies. I'm sorry I can't think of many off of the top of my head, but I bet someone else can.

I have a dd so I have a pretty good solution: I buy her capris that are a size 4t or so, and we wear them as pants. She normally would wear a 2t or so. My friends has a boy, and she did this, too...she just bought plain jean capris and they look just like regular jeans on her ds.<br>
I know it can be really hard... I second the Hanna clothes in a size 80 or 90. (baby) They have alot of room.

I'd recommend Hanna Andersson, Baby Gap and Old Navy. 90% of what the girls own is from Baby Gap (I work there) and I've always had good luck with the diaper room issue with the CD's.<br><br>
On the flip side, I've had bad luck with Carters and Osh Kosh, they seem to have much less diaper room.<br><br>
P.S. just wanted to add that Lauren used to wear just the original Cotton Kisses with ME airflows, worked great but made for a really bulky diaper bottom, so we really had to hunt for clothing with ample diaper room and that was what we found.

My dd is super tiny (only 18lbs @ 15mo), so I don't have too many issues w/clothes fitting. But, I have found that onsies are the first thing to be outgrown. Onsies extenders, sold by the One Step Ahead catalog can help them fit longer. I've also found that overalls & 1 piece outfits work MUCH better than seperate pants & shirts. Also, Old Navy sweats do work really well over cds, and are pretty cheap (but super soft & wash really well). Hanna Andersson is very pricey, but they fit well over cds.<br><br>
Gotta love the big cd tushies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Good luck!

I've personally been very happy with Land's End. Many of the clothes have ample room for the Oompa Loompa behind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> , and I've found the quality to be good as well. I haven't tried onesies from there, but usually buy the one-piece outfits (playsuits). You can even get them at Sears now to avoid shipping.<br><br>
Good luck!

I make my own onesie extenders ~ just bind the edges of a 2 by 4" or so piece of fabric (terry works great), and put 3 snaps on each short side. Make sure the snaps are on the correct sides of the fabric, a visual test is easier than me explaining it here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Not only are the onesies longer, they also sit a bit higher so the big part of the butt is less covered.
