I would like to buy a cloth diaper that will not cause me to go out and buy new onesies! My friend's son is cloth diapered and he has a large heiny beacuse of the diaper. Any suggestions?

I love cotton diapers, so I can only suggest to you my fave trim fitting diapers that are cotton.

www.PreciousDignity.com her fitteds under a Thirsties Duo Wrap or Blueberry Coverall is a very trim combination.

Swaddlebees EcoNappi is a very trim cotton pocket diaper. It is a one-size, so it can adjust as your baby grows. On the smaller settings, it will seem bulky.

Basically, though, any cloth diaper will be more bulky than disposables. Cloth diapers are not the problem; disposables are. Because so many people use them, designers and manufacturers of children's clothing have made the bottoms much trimmer fitting than is appropriate for most cloth diapers. My 9 month old is very big to begin with ... she's 90th % for height and weight, so take this into consdieration when I share the following: She and her two year old sister share cloths quite a bit. I think it looks more proportional to buy the same size top and bottom than to buy different sizes. But you'll figure it out for what works for your baby, clothing wise.

You'll have to buy bigger onesies eventually anyways, so don't let that stop you from CDing!!

Gymboree has a pretty generous toosh area in how their clothes fit, so consignment or clearance racks can help you with that brand. Just any clothes that you buy from now on, make sure the fit is appropriate for a cloth diapered baby! I have great luck with short dress/spanky combos and one-piece outfits. The one-piece outfits are usually generous and maybe even fluffy in the bottoms.

Good luck!

The large bottom is fine. The extra padding will come in handy when the child starts to walk. The size of the nappy needn't change just the clothes sizing.

Quoting Kylie:

the pop-ins by close parent are fantastic and the inserts are bamboo so aswell as being trim they are also very absorbent. They are an all in 2 so pull apart for easy washing/drying and are also one-sized so will fit from birth all the way through to potty training. They are the definate favourite in my stash



I agree Kylie. Pop-ins are definately my favourites too. They're very trim with the normal inserts, and with the nighttime booster it is exceptionally leakproof. It has double gussets around the legs like disposables, and great elastic around the waist. It is the only nappy that held in my son's poo explosions- when even Huggies had failed. Try www.ozbabytrends.com.au

I also like gdiapers for a trim fit, either with their cloth insert or the flushable.

I've tried a few different pocket diapers and Fuzzi Bunz are still my favorite. I find the one sized a tad bulky, but their sized diapers are nice and trim.

i also found that the grobaby diapers are very trim. fuzziebunzs one size aren't all that bad for bulk either, but i've heard that the fuzziebunz sized diapers are very trim.

big ol cloth booties are cute! :) you could do a cute cover over your diaper (if using a fitted or prefold) and just wear shirts. i do sell trim dipes (AIOs or fitteds) though if you're interested. $7, alittlefluffy.etsy.com

I'm from Australia and I use Real Nappies which is a New Zealand brand of cotton nappies. They are really great because they are not much bigger than a disposable nappy, my son can wear the same size clothes regardless of whether he's using a cloth or disposable. They are also great because they come in 4 sizes so you can pick the size that best represents your baby

The grobabies are wonderful. I had a chuncky baby and they were to tight for her thighs. Softbums are extremly trim. But they aren't for heavy wetters. Also I just tried swaddlebees and the are pretty trim. I'm gonna be ordering more of them.

I agree with Jen - it's the clothes not the diapers that are the problem! :) I use the BumGenius, and the GDiapers with the new cloth inserts. But you can get those little "crotch extenders" to make the onsies longer from One Step Ahead's website.

I just started using Tiny Tush elite diapers for my 8 month old. I love these pocket diapers and they are the trimmest I have. I have the regular medium which fit great and some one sizes which are nice since they will grow to fit her. They are a pretty good price too on the Tiny Tush website.
