Hello, we have been using premium CPF's for the past 6 months but ds is becoming squirmier so I'm looking for something more convenient. He is 24 months old, 37" tall and maybe 26 lbs. I don't mind how trim the diaper is...if anything he needs some bulk to hold his pants up LOL! Ideas? Many thanks in advance.

How about Mother Ease Sandys orToddler ease? They are cheaper than most and not toooo trim!

Hi mamabike <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I purchased two side snapping diapers in the last month for my trim little guy. I hadn't used that style before thinking his thin thighs would mean loose legs. But I LOVE them. I can make them tight in the leg and a little looser in the belly. One was a FLAG that I got off the TP, and the other was a wonderful firetruck pocket diaper from a Canadian WAHM who is opening up soon.<br><br>
If you haven't tried a side snapping diaper you might want to give one a try <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I love the fit of SOS on my tall, skinny toddler. In fact, I just cleared out my stash and they are the only fitteds we are using. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hey Leigh Anne. We're still using mostly prefolds on Andrew. Now that he's squirmy, I pretty much just have them trifolded in advance, with the fleece liner laid in, inside the covers that we're using. We're using mostly proraps, which I find are great on him. He's not as skinny as your young man, mind you! Couldn't you just switch to having them ready and prefolded instead of using pinning or snappi-ing?<br><br>
Also, I have a pocket diaper from Julie at <a href="http://www.diaperworks.com/" target="_blank">Diaperworks</a> --Canadian WAHM--that I just love, and we just use prefolds to stuff it. It has thigh snaps as well as front snaps, and those mean I can get it nice and tight at the thighs. The one I have is a fleece pocket, I love it. And I always stuff them after drying them, so that Jeff never has to do anything complicated! Also, she adapted them to Andrew's size, and made the front snaps wings shorter, while giving him the rise of a larger size. And she was quick! Plus I think she has discounts on larger orders. She's on the Yahoo group.<br><br>

Hi maggiemae, I had a Sandy's intro pack coming in the mail...here's hoping!<br><br>
Mr. Peabody's Mom: Side-snapping dipes are definitely the way for us to go. I've been waiting for <a href="http://www.jamtots.com" target="_blank">www.jamtots.com</a> to get their sidesnapping sugarpeas in. I would love to give them a try.<br><br>
Mistymama: I would love to get my hands on some SOS's but they are so very hard to come by...KWIM? How did you manage to get so many? (last time I tried, they sold out in minutes of being posted each week)<br><br>
Hey Alison: My little guy eats a lot of dried fruit (dates, figs, prunes...) so we need a tight fit around the thighs to avoid messy clothes. The diaperworks diaper sounds ideal though...giving the rise of a larger size while still keeping the waist and thighs smaller. I will definitely check out her site.<br><br>
Thanks so much <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup">
