It seems that if I use ANYTHING except for a SUPER TRIM AIO (Simply cloth, Angel wraps , FB, or HH) once I Get their clothes on, and put them down to play, they start tipping over and falling down! the dipes are too bulky for them to do anything in!<br>
Its terrible, so I have to change them and hope I have a dry /clean FB around!<br><br>
I have a nice collection of soakers and covers now and Im so sad that I really cant use them! Does this happen to anyone else<br>

I think it is a very temporary thing -- they will eventually get used to them! In fact, I've been told that CDs actually help develop a baby's hip, leg, and pelvic muscles better because of the extra bulk and because it's a little harder to move around initially.<br><br>
BILLIONS of babies throughout the course of history have done just fine in bulky diapers -- yours will too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Maybe you could try some diapers that are a little less bulky? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:<br><br>
I honestly did not like the bulk of CDs when we started and have made it my quest to find the least bulky and most absorbant diaper combo out there for my DD and DS. So far, I like Happy Heniys for my DD and for my DS, my favorite combo is a fleece-topped salmander soaker in a BSWW or wool cover.<br><br>
Experiment a little and you are sure to find a CD that fits your babies with a little less bulk--don't give up just yet! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I agree its very temporary so I wouldn't worry about it. Rhys did sit up a little later than his cousin who was in sposies but really in the grand scheme of things does a few weeks or months matter that much (at least that is the way I looked at it).<br><br>
I think cloth actually makes babies work harder at learning balance...which I look on as a good thing. I know when Rhys finally learned to sit up he was solid KWIM?<br><br>

I find that a bikini fold with a CPFS is perfect to allow my son to move (take his feet up to his mouth for example - that's what he likes doing the most). It is not bulky at all

In our recent diaper shortage, I put a fleece covered Joey Bunz in a SP wool cover. His wool cover is very snug fitting now and it works beautifully. Since it's during the day, absorbancy is just right and VERY trim! We EC poos, though, so bf poos finding their way onto the cover or out of it isn't too much of an issue. Still. . .it's a trim option! Our other trim choice is an infant CPF in a snug cover--usually a BSWW or a SP wool (since those are the only ones we have! :LOL).

For trim I like a HH, angelwrap, or bumkins. At night I put her in a wool soaker with a heavy fitted or pf and a doubler. The thing is huge on her, but she can still walk around just fine, and it is so fun to watch her walking around with her big diaper butt.
