Just curious....We're expecting a baby girl in March and this will be our first time CDing. Do you put snap-crotch onsies on them, or do you find them not to work as well, ie; don't fit right or get wet if dipe leaks.<br>
I'd most likely go with tees and pants if it weren't for the fact that it is still chilly here in March. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/cold.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cold">:<br>
Thanks!

We either do long sleeve lap tees and longies (translation diaper cover that is pants) or these <a href="http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/category.do?cid=6269" target="_blank">http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/category.do?cid=6269</a>. They sell some nice ones at Zutano and Gymboree. Oh and the one pieces do come in shorts and short sleeves for the spring.

DD lives in side snap tees and long cotton lounge pants. Onesies fit her fine, but I just don't prefer them--if I do have her wear one I pair it with Babylegs. She is very warm blooded, so I dress her very lightly.<br>
I have some wool longies and shorties coming in the mail, so I'm excited to try those out.

I use pocket diapers and then just dress dd in anything: sleepers, pants, onesies... I find fuzzi bunz the trimmest under her clothes but even my bulkiest one-size diapers go under her pants without any problems. I have some fitteds and I knitted a few pairs of longies for her but I don't find that I use them much unfortunately. HTH! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Pretty much anything. I love one piece outfits that snap between the legs, so easy and very cute. I like my babe to look like a baby and not a mini-adult. Snap shirts fit fine too, we just buy them a little big so they're long enough.

We use Fuzzibuns pocket diapers and find that most anything fits except sometimes I buy pants/shorts one size bigger. Very trim toddler jeans, such as many that are sold at Target, are too slim to fit over the cloth dipes and even a tight squeeze on our pudgy princess when we (gasp) use a disposable diaper, so mostly I think it is just her build, not necessarily the diaper.<br>
I liked to use onesies before the babies could walk because I hate it when shirts ride up on infants, I feel like I am constantly pulling them down to cover up their little backs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/cold.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cold">:. Once they get to be toddlers, then shirts and pants are easier, I think, especially when they start the wriggly dance of I-don't-wanna-get-dressed.<br>
HTH. Best of luck and congratulations! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><br>

we do just about anything... onesies, sleepers, pants, 1 and 2 piece outfits... if the diaper is trim enough anything fits fine!

Thanks so much for all your replies! I guess I won't worry about buying anything special then, but will make sure the pants will fit over her little bum!

These rock!<br><br>
At home, it's a gown, so no snapping required for diaper changes.<br>
If we're going somewhere, it only takes a few snaps to make it into a romper.<br><br>
We only have 4 of them, but at 4 weeks, she still hardly ever wears anything else!

anything and everything.... we havent had trouble with things fitting until he got to the high end of a size range, then the onsies were a little too short- they pulled the collar down when i snapped them

We've never had any problems with clothes fitting and have never needed to size up. We use gowns a lot at home and we have one convertible gown from dd1 that I love. I didn't know anyone still made them, so I may have to put in an order to Lands End soon! LOL! My kids tend to be small, though with skinny little bums so in the toddler stage the cloth diaper actually keeps their pants from falling off!<br><br><br><br>
Selena,by the way not to hi-jack the thread but my dd1's name is also Rhianna! We've never met another one. Actually dh thought he made up the name. I wanted to name her Rhiannon and he changed it to Rhianna and liked it better. And my new little babe was due on Dec 25, but came 10 days early!
