looking for a super trim fit...

i have a few different types of cd's....lately ive been finding myself using the gdiapers with cloth inserts on both of my boys bc theyre just so trim!! sounds stupid, but i like that they arent bulky and i dont have to listen to friends/family who think cloth is gross or ridiculous or the variety of other things ive heard. no one even knows when they have gdiapers on! i dont love them but i dont hate them either. (not at night or nap) i really like that the inserts are hemp and micro-fleece also. they do wick the mositure away. problems are that they have to be changed constantly bc theyre not very sterdy. and my toddler is getting red marks on his hips....anyone have any experience with something almost as trim but a better diaper? my boys are both very big for their ages (almost 9 months weighing 24lbs and almost 26 months weighing 35lbs) and have chunky legs! i dont want to spend a fortune.

i love how trim and easy to use flats are. They have become my favorites and I'm gonna be buying more very soon.

I have a very trim boy (16 months, 22 lbs, 30 inches tall) and I find for him, that the Fuzzi bunz perfect size or the Thirsties duo pocket diaper are trimmer than most. I usually use prefolds, so he has a lot of bulk in front from the fold of that. I also love my Baby Beehinds, that I use for overnight, the bamboo fitteds are very absorbant and not toooo bulky. Consider nicki's diapers for their used section, jillian's drawers has a good used section (and a nice trial like nickis) and also try rediaper.com (although often rediaper sells inserts separatly, so might not be cheaper)

Try perfect size fuzzibunz, itti bitti d'lish AIO (although they run small, so size up for cuddly babies), or Bumgenius 4.0 OS are good too, especially for sleepy times

If you find a few diapers that you want to try, I would suggest doing a diaper trial. I know that nickisdiapers.com offers a 15 day trial . Just thought you might be interested.

I find the fuzzi bunz one size and baby kanga are fairly trim for my son (who's a little chunker with bigger legs too, he's 26lbs now). I also use the Gdiaper covers with a Flip liner and I like the color/look of them more than the fit. My LO gets red marks from the G's too :( Those are the diapers I go to when I want a trim fit (like with jeans) but I use various other diapers on a regular basis. Hope that helps a bit.

I use bambino mio nappies and they are only slightly bulkier than disposables nobody knows they are wearing cloth until i take their clothes off. Ive never had any bad comments about cloth nappies though every time i tell someone i use them they are always very positive about them.
