DD has worn wool longies all winter, and will probably still wear them sometimes. But I can't seem to find any shorts or pants that fit over cds with covers. I don't use aio's. So where do you shop? Feel free to spam me!

I use prefolds and covers (and did with #1, too) and have found that most clothes fit, you just have to go up a size. My little guy is 2.5 mos. and has been in 3-6 mo. clothes for over a month.

Some brands that I find to be a little more roomy for boys: Gymboree, Old Navy (maybe Gap, too, then??), Zutano leggings, and my favorite--Basic Brilliance <a href="http://www.basicbrilliance.com/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.basicbrilliance.com/index.html</a> I have their cotton baby leggings and cotton baby pants. The cotton baby pants have a HUGE diaper allowance, and run really humongous. The leggings stretch over fat diapers, too. My DS wears a 12-18 month in most pants, but the 6-9 pants from Basic Brilliance are fine.<br><br>
We use Fuzzi Bunz, so they bay be a little more trim that a thick prefold. I have no doubt that the Basic Brilliance would work, though.

I agree with the other mama's about just wearing the next size. I also second the Zutano leggings...my dd wear's these fine, true to her size. And the Zutano dresses are really cute and fit fine over diapers <a href="http://www.bambinomountain.com/zutano_products.html" target="_blank">http://www.bambinomountain.com/zutano_products.html</a>.<br>
In the summertime, I often let the kiddo's wear just their cloth diapers, or maybe the diapers with a shirt. Goodluck<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Yep, we just have to go up a size on onesies, or the bottom half of an outfit. Sometimes it looks so funny, since we are all used to diaposable "proportions" these days. But I love it!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I never thought I'd dress my dd in dresses (she hardly wears pink and gets mistaken for a boy all the time--I don't mind!) but since she moved up a size in her cloth dipes, she's been wearing a lot of dresses with leggings underneath. I think it's cute and it makes her look a little less rediculous with her HUGE butt!

I'll have to try out Zutano and Hanna too. I did a Basic Brilliance co-op, so I have a bunch of their stuff. The problem I have is getting the rise high enough. I've been buying bigger sizes, but I was just wondering if there was something that would just fit. Thanks! Keep the ideas coming~

Surprising enough, Hanna Andersson had onesies on sale at the outlet for a dollar-- Doug's proper size fits him PERFECTLY over the big diaper butt. I was thrilled. Wish I had bought more than the one!

Just wanted to jump in and get tips<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/notes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notes">:<br>
Also - I LOVE the way dd looks with her big padded diaper butt - I frequently sing "Baby's got back and I cannot lie - those other mommies can't deny...."<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

We chuckle over dd's adorable "J-LO" cloth diaper butt. It's very pattable and so cute!<br><br>
She's 5 months and wearing 12 month clothes, especially for leggings to fit over her bubblebutt. I also love the dress over leggings look.<br><br>
FYI, I've found that Gap clothes run on the smaller side. I'm a big fan of Naartjie, their clothes are very soft and comfy and really beautiful.
