I just got my medium stacinators in the mail. They fit wonderfully around the thighs on the smallest setting, and even around the waist, again on the smallest; but the rise is about 2" too high in the front AND back, and there is a ton of extra material hanging down over the thighs. . I feel like I could roll it over, but that's would be quite uncomfortable for him, I'd imagine. These are going to be nice when he's a lot longer (he's 25" right now)<br><br>
Now, I know it's not typical to have a 15# baby at 7 weeks, but I NEED a trim wool cover! SOMEWHERE there has to be a wool cover that will fit over his Kissaluvs 1 and CPFs and whatever hemp diaper I manage to find. Winter is coming up and I would really like to have something trim to prevent the layers from creating a weeble wobble out of my baby! Poor thing will be a year old before he learns to creep with all that material on his bum! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
I've been eyeing ElBee diapers and wooly bully covers. And, of course, the SP wool medium. Maybe I should have gotten the stacinator small?? Any ideas?! Any commiseration?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Woolybumbums use your babies measurements to make the cover so you are sure to get a good fit. She uses recycled material so they are very reasonable. Maybe you could tell her you want the trimmest wool she has in stock too.<br><br>

I think a small Stacinator might work too. My 12 1/2 lb dd has a small Stacinator that she wears at the smallest settings, and it is HUGE on her! I can see her wearing it for a long, long time. I think they run big anyway - my 27 lb toddler is wearing a large at the smallest waist settings and next-to smallest leg snaps.

for trim wool I really like bumpy's Ollie wears the small but is almost out growing it and the medium on the tightest setting lots a room to grow without alot of poofy fabric. I agree that the medium stacinator is huge. My ds is 15lbs too and it's so big on him it's silly. Works great for night time though. I had a small stacinator that fit great on the middle settings but dh through it in the laundry I didn't find it till the dryer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> so it's a newborn now. We have a sugarpeas small and it fits him on the second to tightest setting so that might be an option it's really trim too. I think he'll probably outgrow it in the rise before anything else the way he's going.<br><br>

I can't quite visualize your baby's body type, it sounds like maybe short and plump? Based on fit alone I'd suggest Bumpy or SugarPeas.<br><br>
I personally prefer SugarPeas because they have a narrower seat than the bumpy and make my dd's bum look so cute and round. However, with the bumpy you get a more snug fit and a bit more width in the hip area.<br><br>
When stretched out Sugar peas are shaped like a T and Bumpys are shaped like a Y, if that makes sense?<br><br>
FWIW My SP is avacado fabric from the last batch and I find it to be more effective than the Bumpy.

That is really weird! My stancinator is really small fitting and it is a large! It is way smaller then my Fuzeasy covers and my Elbee cover which is a medium. Something strange here. The Elbee's are bigger fitting then all my other covers. I like that too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

OK, forget what I said in my earlier post! I just checked DS Stacinators and they are <i>Toddler</i> size, not large. Oops! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Okay. . .so, I've already got an order in to Wooly BumBums and she's repairing one of my others--these 2 should fit for awhile. Then, I have 2 freshies on order, as well. And I have 2 SP wool covers that have one more set of snaps, but we're at the end of the rope for rise. I LOVE my SP covers, too, b/c of the cute little rounded bum! But are the SP medium covers going to be too big, too? I have to find something to replace the SPsmalls, which are only working with CPFs now (b/c of the rise, I suppose). And ElBee covers are BIGGER than the stacinators? OH NO! Maybe if I ordered some of those, they would fit by the time my turn on the 8 week waiting list came up, huh?!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Yeah. . .maybe I'm all screwed up with my measurements! Kissaluv diapers are my bulkiest, so I measure with that on him. I keep thinking I've done it wrong. I'm going to measure him with a SP dipe on and see what I come up with. I'll be back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Okay--Here are his measurements. I'm pretty certain these are accurate: with a SP hemp diaper on, waist is 16" and Rise is 15" from front top of diaper to back top of diaper. But his legs are only 8.5" or so, unless I measure at an angle the way the diapers actually fit and then they're more like 9.5". Anyway, I would describe his body type as long and sturdy. He's not really <i>fat</i>. Just filled out, I guess.<br><br>
I'm glad the Freshies will be good. And I think I'm going to try to get a couple SP next week--these sound like they'll be what I need, since I like my smalls so well. Otherwise, I'll have to get a small stacinator, I think (I'm down to 4 BSWW and 1 wool cover) to tide me over until my orders come in! I'm going to get on the waiting list for ElBee and maybe order a couple covers to grow into.
