1 month and 18lbs??

Dd was chunky and I found most BG diapers fit well. Thirsties covers and prefolds or flats too.
You might have luck with a one size FB since the legs are adjustable?

Thirsties-not duo covers though
Maybe wool?

Side snap fitteds and pull on stretchy interlock wool soakers. I suggest trying Motherease Bamboo Sandys with a Loveybums pull on soaker, as an affordable starter option. That combo is so gentle on the thighs, no red marks EVER!

I am loving Softbums on my chunky 19 lb DS. The adjustable elastic is super gentle.

Try Green Line Diapers - their covers are super adjustable b/c of the toggle in the thigh.

I like blueberry, they fit my LO great when he was fat and now skinny. Thirsties would probably be worth a try, they are pretty generous, especially size 2 in duos. I would say avoid Rumparooz, they are pretty tiny in the leg and kind of bulky. I second the HH suggustion as well.

I totally second side snap diapers for skinny waist and chunky thighs. They've worked really well for my guy who has a thinner waist and big legs. Fitteds with wool or fleece and pockets or AIO/2s!

Oh, we like Rainshine Designs, Dunk n Fluff, and Holden's Landing. There are a lot of WAHMs that do side snaps.
