About half of my stash is bumgenius. I really don't see the rise being enough much longer for DS so I'm looking for something new. I'm starting to switch over from medium FB to petite toddler for the same reason, but I like a little diversity in my diaper stash. I also have a couple of Rumparooz, but they seem to have a shorter rise as well.<br><br>
Any suggestions for things to try? One sized dipes are not a must since he is already on the largest setting, sized dipes are just fine.

our kawaii diapers are cheap, good quality, and have a higher rise than bg. also green acre designs makes a med/long or their regular large fits out girl pretty well (seems better for chubby thighs).

I have tried GADs but they are side snapping which did not work for DS. He is not a chubby guy, more long and lean. I've heard of kawaii. Where did you buy them?

I think the Fuzzi Bunz have a higher rise? The BGs never worked on my kids but the FB do.

Maybe try the Flip dipes? They have a higher rise than the BGs.

I had the same problem, poor DS has been sporting his "plumber's butt" for a while now. Now I haven't used them for very long, but I recently ordered an Antsy Pants diaper just to try and I really like them so far, so I ordered a few more. They're designed to work well with potty-training, because they're designed so that you can either snap them on like a diaper or pull them up and down like underwear. We're not anywhere near potty-learning yet, but I thought it might be helpful down the road. Also, you can use them "as-is" or there's a pocket for putting in more absorbency - I found that the lighter BG inserts folded in half fit perfectly in them.<br><br>
Like I said, I'm still very new at these so it's not the most water-tight endorsement, but something to look into perhaps. Our "sample" did contain the largest poop I have ever seen DS produce, so that kind of sold me... LOL

The Knickernappies OS has a high rise - much higher than their sized version. The OS has a higher rise than my FB OS or HH OS (on the largest settings).<br><br>

Happy Heiney's OS has the highest rise I've found so far. My son outgrew all his diapers in the rise except the HH and FB petite.

Ack! The knickernappies are side snap. DS peed right out the side when I have tried side snap before (GADs) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I would actually second the Knickernappies OS. It seems odd that he would have peed out the side of the diaper. Perhaps he was pointed sideways? We've been using and LOVING the KND's for quite a while now and can't find a single thing I don't like about them. Happy Heinys also do have a taller rise.<br><br>

my dd can wear these on the medium setting, while with all else she needs the full setting. also, our fb have a good length rise- and you can find petite fb, which have a super long rise, clearanced in some places right now. there are some on the fb seconds site i think.

Knickernappies and Happy Heiny's have the highest rise I have found. They are seriously impressive. Knickernappies 'looks' like a side snap but until your kid is pretty impressively chunky (like well over 30 lbs) they work more like a front snap because they are so large.

There's a blog post here that sort of shows the BG compared to the KN <a href="http://knickernappies.blogspot.com/search/label/KN%20vs.%20BG" target="_blank">http://knickernappies.blogspot.com/s.../KN%20vs.%20BG</a> and also a cloth diapering mama recently made a video review of the knickernappies that you can see on her blog <a href="http://dirtydiaperlaundry.com/knickernappies-one-size-review/" target="_blank">http://dirtydiaperlaundry.com/knicke...e-size-review/</a><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I love KN's. BG's were also a favorite but my little ones were on the largest BG setting already at 9 months old.

I have a couple of Kawaii on the way to me now. I'll look for a knickernappies and a HH to try. Thanks for the suggestions!!<br><br>
I really don't know what was up with the GAD side snap, but when I tried it he leaked out of the side every time he peed. He wasn't pointed sideways, the pee came out of both sides!
