hi!<br>
any recommendations for wool covers for a baby with chubby legs? Staccinator are too small, sugarbums do not fit right. the less $$ the better.<br>
thanks!

Not an answer, but I second the request for a recommendation! Those Nikky covers do look good though, I have not tried one but they seem to habve a narrower crotch than others.

I just ordered some covers from hunnybuns, she takes your child's measurements! So I know the covers will fit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br>
I can't wait to get them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Fluffymail.com's are side snapping so they are adjustable.. their wool jersey is very stretchy!<br><br>
You could always go with soakers too! lol

I love my Little Lambs wool cover for my chubby boy. He's 21lbs 8 months with 15 inch waist and 11 inch thighs. The large fits him on the next to tightest setting so lots of roon to grow and never has left a red mark. If you pay attention she has 2 dollar off sales all the time so her covers are a great deal. And she offers a money back guarentee so aside from shipping you aren't out any money if it oesn't work for you.<br><br>
I also like bumpy wool wraps trim and very adjustable a size large fits well with lots of room to grow and no red marks with the bonus of being easy to clean since they can be machine washed.<br><br>
I had the same problems with stacinators and sugarbums that you had from the sounds of it.<br>

I second the Little Lambs wool covers. My only complaint is the cut is a bit trim around the legs, but otherwise I really like them.<br><br>
IMO, though, for chubby babies nothing beats a wool soaker!

Caroline, unless you're doing tri-folded prefolds to lay in a wrap (no snappi, no fitted dipes), I wouldn't even consider a Nikky. They are so trim that they don't cover much of anything!<br>
I've used Biobottoms with great success, and of course there is always wool soakers (my favorite <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">)

My DD has some chubby legs (11") and I like fuzbombs, elbee wool, sugarpeas wool, and wool soakers. Though, I also like a number of covers that I hear aren't good for chubby thighs (bumkins my 19-lber wears a large, alexis featherlites, etc.). I also really like our Nikky cover with a quad folded prefold.<br><br>
HTH!!

Thanks for the feedback re: those nikky covers , and sorry if I hijacked the thread. Would a nikky cover not work even with a bikini cut fitted or narrow fitted, like a firefly (I don't have one of those but have heard they are narrower through the crotch)

My DD has problems with the thigh area in every wool snap cover except Stacinator . . .maybe the next size up would work for you? Also, I think soakers would be great for this issue!
