I just started cloth diapering my 19-month old ds about three weeks ago. I've got a couple of fitteds, two one-size, I think, two Happy Heineys and one Fuzzi Bunz. And I just bought some cpf. He is a very heavy wetter, so in a fitted dipe even with a doubler, I might have to change him 30 minutes later, and he's really wet! Also, sometimes he really whines when I put the cd on him (we're kind of working our way into it). I don't know if the bulkiness bothers him after disposables, or what. But so I'm wondering, what is the best diaper for heavy wetting toddlers that isn't too bulky? Also, in the HHs, I'm using two Joeybunz hemp inserts, but sometimes it's like the pee misses the insert and then leaks through the cover. What do you think? Quite a message for a delurker!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

how many times did you wash the joeys? since they are hemp they get more absorbent the more they are washed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I started my twins when they were 21 months old and we used kushies basics and bumkins wraps. they worked well for us. not too absorbent but very trim. my guys were not heavy wetters so it was a good combo for us. we also used fuzzi bunz at night.<br><br>
now they are 42 months and my younger son is 27 months and I have them all in AIOs and at night still FBs and HHs. (one is potty trained at day but still in dipes at night)

I find with my 14 mo that she has sort of a pee schedule. there are times in the day that she pees every 10 min (after meals) and other times when she won't pee for a hour.<br><br>
Perhaps you could try cpf's coverless at home (with a snappi) untill you get a feel for how much absorbancy you need and how often your ds's diaper needs to be changed.

My toddler can pee through a regular cpf- without a cover, an actual river pours out thru it. The premiums are better, but still soak up really fast. My ds is 19 months and has started to sit on the potty and pee in it sometimes- that helps. I just ordered toddler size ubcpfs since the premiums barely fit around his waist with room to snappi. When we go out I add a hemp doubler and at night use thicker hemp fitteds- Liz's Cloth Nighty Noodles work well.

DD did the same thing when we first switched to cloth at about 20 mos. Everytime I tried to put a cloth diaper on her she would whine and cry. Someone suggested character print diapers to me and it worked like a charm. Once she saw those diapers with Elmo and Pooh on them she was happy as could be to wear them and show them off. I got mine at Little Lambs <a href="http://www.cutest-cloth-diapers.com" target="_blank">www.cutest-cloth-diapers.com</a> They are wonderful AIOs and she has tons of prints to chose from - and they are only $10-$12 each. Maybe this will help you to - it really made a difference for us!

Thanks guys! I'll have to see what I can figure out. I thought I had toddler-sized prefolds, but I'll have to check. I'm also gonna have to wait on buying anything else cause I have probably 8 diapers coming in the mail <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"> and I've already spent quite a bit of money! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to admit that I'm atleast a baby hyena!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Oh! My cpfs are not toddler-sized, they're just regular (and I just bought them). Where can I get toddler sizes? Does just about everyone sell them?

Inge is very fast about mailing things out. You can get them a lot of places- check the Daily Diaper above.
