My 32 lb, 37" tall toddler, at 28 months, needs new diapers. He's been EC'd since birth, but shows no signs of being potty ready anytime soon. In fact, he's refused to use the toilet for the last 3 months, and he's outgrown his BG 2.0 diapers. I'm moving those to New Baby Rotation for my 5 week old, and my wallet and garbage can would LOVE to find some good, affordable dipes for my tall, muscular, pees-like-a-racehorse toddler boy. He can hold it, and does, for over 2 hours, which floods the living daylights out of his BG's. What do you all suggest, short of pf's and covers, which I'll resort to as a last option!

Aren't there some fitteds that run that high? I know Little Beetle makes a fitted that runs for toddlers, and I would assume that most of the others do, too, though I'll admit I don't know for sure.<br><br>

I "eced" from birth DD wore diapers till she was 4.5 years. We liked our tiny tush one size and the ME sandy toddler ease diapers.

I would try fuzzi bunz, kissaluvs size 2 with wool shorts/pants or fuzzi bunz bedwetter pants.

My son is about the same size as yours, and we also practice EC, and haven't "graduated" yet either. Right now, the only diapers that still fit are Blue Penguins AIOs (we have the large size from <a href="http://www.babycottonbottoms.com/bluepenguin_aio.htm" target="_blank">here</a>, and they are actually still a bit too big), Mother-Ease AIO in large (but they are a bit tight) and the Mother-Ease One-size fitteds, so the extra-large AIO and the Toddler-Ease diapers would probably fit your son for some time. But most of the time we use Bummis Training pants, medium size - they've been able to hold major "accidents" without leaking.

My DS is very tall, and we had lots of luck with FCB size 2's....if you can get your hands on any! They are super absorbant and high-rise, so they fit for a long time. We also liked Snugwees for nighttime for him. I'd stay away from Kissaluvs for a child that tall, especially a boy....I found him to pee too high on the diaper, not in the absorbant area.

I totaly do not get the kissaluv sizing. Even when my DD was 4 years old (Tall but lean) I could cross over the snaps and they woul still be too loose the wings droped horribly and the rise is sooooooooo short. I love the feel the streachiness but the rise thing is just weird and the wing droop is ultra annoying.

I always liked the Kissaluvs. They are one of the only dipes that actually fit dd. In fact, the size 2's were still way too big for her and she wore 1's still when she potty trained. They even worked for my 4yo son (for bedwetting)and he is in the 95% percentile. But every child is different. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I liked the kissaluvs except the rise never got the rise. Mine were all VERY used seconds though so maybe that made a diffrence??

My DS is built similarly and is just about out of his BG large AIOs (which, incidentally, fit roomier than the OS). Anyway, the Little Beetle hemp lite size 3 fit with tons of extra room and they hold a ton, too. The only other one that I have right now is the Loveybums XL interlock LIO, which I love but it is too bulky for under clothes, unlike the LB. The LB with a large Wild Child Woolies pull on wool cover works awesome and is very trim under clothing.

sounds like pf's and covers are my cheapest option, as all the os's and options I see here are out of my price range for a large enough stash to cd for an entire day or more. He has such HORRIBLE toddler poop I hesitate to blunder back into the prefold world....ICK.

You can also use those disposable liners. They are really cheap. Or cut rectangles of fleece. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We had the issue of not wanting the prefold route when our DD became older mainly because we were tying to teach some potty independance and prefolds just didn't allow for it. Second honestly I just really needed convience by them.<br>
It was hard to find what I needed because she was tall finding affordable CDs to fit a tall year old isn't easy the rise on many just wont work. SHe was outgrowing almost all her covers. at the same time though she was older and just naturally not wetting as often ( but a lot when she did). So a dozen good diapers was really a usable stash... Some diapers I found that worked and didn't totally break the bank...<br><br>
Tiny tush one size the old style runs around $9 a diaper<br>
blue penguin cotton snap on diaper ($9.50 each)<br>
little lions fitted ($6 each) actually these are really nice I didn't even know about them till almost the end...<br>
All together deluxe AIO toddler or super toddler size around $11 each don't ride these off they can take anything you throw at them and with a doubler are quite assorbent.<br><br>
covers honestly pull on covers were our prefered choice at this stage..
