    Posted: 01 May 2012 at 12:09pm
One of my IRL friends decided to attempt at least part time cloth diapering but is having an issue with covers.  Her DS is over 3 months old and falls into "normal" weight/height ratios but is unbelievably chicken-legged(especially for EBF baby).  He is seriously swimming in 0-3 month clothing.   

I know they have tried flips and still have leg gaps on the smallest settings unless they use a PF and flat together(which is entirely a waste for them since DS refuses to sit in ANY wetness).  They would prefer to purchase OS covers at this point and want snaps rather than velcro.  Their diapers consist entirely of PFs and flats that are pad folded.  They have used a few different styles from my diapers but aren't liking much beyond the PFs/flat combos. 

So, any suggestions for covers?

I would try the thirsties sized covers maybe even a size small, with some fleece liners.  Another option and I'm not sure this would work would be to try the thirsties duo size one and some workhorses along with some fleece liners.  If her DS is that small the sized cover might last longer than she thinks, and she'll be able to resell it anyway once he can fit into a OS cover.  From what your saying if he's having that much leg gapping it's unlikely that he would fit into any true OS cover, and at best she'll have to go with the smaller size of a two sized system.  The sized thirsties aren't that expensive, and making fleece liners is super cheap and easy.

I think Duo wraps are great for tiny legs. I think any cover with gussets would work, too.

What about a BB coverall? I didn't use one with a smaller baby, though so I don't really know what weight they start fitting best. Micah had chicken legs for a long time, but I have never used too many OS covers.

For pad folding I would go with a snug fitting cover. I think she would prefer that to other one size cover till the flips fit.

Oh, I just saw she likes to padfold. Definatly Duo wraps then. Rosa/littlehands also makes a OS cover over a href="http://hyenacart.com/stores/PinsandNeedles/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Pins and Needles She says they are great for padfolding, but I'd ask her if they fit a smaller baby well and you'd have to ask for snaps :)

Grovia shells? 

You could mention the resale value of the duos, if she is worried about putting out money on a size they won't use for long.  I don't think I had my up for sale for more than a day before they were gone.

Fit is everything with pad folding.  She is a trooper for sticking it out with ill fitting covers.

crazy enough, they haven't yet had any leaking--I'm sure its because he hates wetness.  The disposables they use have the blue line on the outside when they are wet-he is already fussing before the line can even turn blue Tongue

I know she's a little bummed they didn't buy some NB sized stuff since they would have gotten quite a bit of use out it but while they were still prego the doc thought baby was going to be large since she measured about 3.5 weeks bigger than "normal" during the 2nd half.

I think I'll recommend the thirsties and the duos.  Do thirsties only come in velcro?

No they come in snaps as well. You could also have her buy a yard of fleece to cut into rectangles for the stay dry effect. It might make him more comfortable, and I'd say definitely more comfy than a sposie.

Duos come in snaps, sized only in velcro.
