Most days we are very happy with our pocket diapers (apple cheeks). Once in a while it is a little frustrating - his clothes are a bit snug because they are very bulky. These diapers never leak for us, but that means extra layer and extra bulk! I want his clothes to last a little longer, but they are snug in the diaper area!!

Please list your favourite cloth diaper that is really TRIM! Something that you can put under a cute pair of jeans!! :D

Any pocket diaper with a hemp insert is SUPER trim. You can barely tell that it is a cloth diaper. That is what I use when I go out. Also, Bottom Bumpers (snaps) are very trim as well. They are the diaper I use most at home. I did a lot of research when I started cloth diapering because bulk was the one thing I did not want. If I could afford to replace all my diapers, I would buy pockets with BabyKicks hemp inserts (they are 7/16" thick). Plus, they are made in the USA!

I love G diapers!!! You can stuff them with the flushable inserts or cloth as well. Very cute and trim. Also Flip diapers are similar and are one size and you can use the cloth insert or disposable inserts as well.

I definitely think grovia AIO and Softbums with the OS bamboo inserts are the trimmest :)

Out of all of the cloth I've tried GroVia AIO are the trimmest. There is a removable layer too which is awesome. SERIOUSLY, fits like a frickin disposable. I use the AI2s myself, but that's because I'd rather snap in new inserts. BUT they are still trimmer than other one size diapers I've used.

Thirsties are pretty good. I tended to use Bamboozles with a Thirsties cover when I wanted something trim.

Vilate is not lying. I have 4 of her Nifty Nappy diapers and with a thin PUL cover (Thirsties seem the trimmest...) I can get my kids (3 month old and 23 month old boys) clothes on no problem. That being said, though, I think I do buy their clothes one size up to accommodate most of our cloth diapers. Nifty nappies without the lay-in doubler are the trimmest thing on the earth, and with the lay-in doubler are the most absorbent thing on earth. Can't beat that!!!!!!!

We were having the same issue finding the trimmest cloth diaper and elected to use Happy Heiny's using Hemp inserts - a lot less bulk while still being really absorbent!

g diapers or a BSWW with a prefold tri folded in them. I love the g's, I use preemie prefolds in the smalls and infant prefolds in the mediums.

We already use prefolds as an insert in our pocket diaper...the don't seem very trim either. I think it is because he is so tiny and every cloth diaper looks so huge on him. Disposables have only one advantage - way more trim! Keep the ideas coming!

you could use a infant prefold folded into 3rds to line a g diaper and that is very trim and will fit under jeans and no one will know that it is a cloth diaper

Those baby bee hinds look great! Too bad they aren't available in Canada! That would be exactly what I'm looking for! I don't really like gDiapers because of the snap-out liner...I prefer a pocket dipe. I bought a bum genius to try, but is still too big...so maybe that one will work when he's older. And fishnoodles? I'll have to look that one up, I guess!

Try the BG sized AIOs or fishnoodles diapers. These are absolutely the TRIMMEST cloth diapers I have found, ever, and with two, I have tried them all!

My boy is now 12 months, and has always been skinny. We have all different brands of every type of diaper. Any of the one-size-fits-all end up being bulky on a skinny baby. Fuzzi Bunz has sizes and fit pretty good. But my husband and I always find ourselves reaching for the prefolds and a Bumkins cover these days, this is really trim, and he thinks its quicker than our pocket diapers.

I like both the happy heinys and fuzzi bunz and the fuzzi bunz are a little narrower in the crotch area which seems to make them a little less bulky. I use my happy heinys under jeans all the time. My secret: homemade stuffers...I still use a small microfiber stuffer but have extra (much smaller) stuffers for the high soak areas. They work GREAT on my happy heinys, but may not be as TRIM as you're looking for. GOOD LUCK!!!

Check out www.babybeehinds.com.au They have cloth nappies called 'BBH Petite All in Two'. They are supposedly as trim as a disposable! Never used them myself, but they look good! I sew my kids pants or purchase bigger sized pants with the adjustable elastic in the waist to cover for the bulk of regular cloth nappies.
