Best trim, stay-dry option for a skinny 10-pounder?
Hey CD'ers

I've been CDing for years but now with baby #3 have been getting lazy...using disposables a little too often...

My daughter, now 2 months, is just 10 pounds and definitely not chubby. My stash mainly consists of prefolds and one-size pockets. The prefolds fit fine (just switched from orange to yellow edge) but she fusses as soon as they are wet. Not a problem if we are at home, but not so great for outings or overnight. The pockets (mostly Bum Genius) are huge on her, even on the smallest setting. Lots of potential for blowouts :(

So, I'm looking for alternatives...I'd love to find a trim, streamlined solution (AIO/pocket/AI2) that includes a layer of fleece to keep her feeling dry. I do have some fleece-lined doublers that I can put on top of the prefolds for nighttime, but they add a lot of bulk and when we're on the go I'd rather not have to bring all those separate bits (prefold, doubler, cover, snappi...)

Any suggestions?

I also prefer a one-piece diapering system when out and about. I use pockets but it sounds like those don't work so well.

I have heard the new OS Fuzzibunz Elites size down small and work well, you might give one of those a try. Or how about a Softbums Echo (more narrow) shell and a stay-dry pod that was snapped in ready to use?

I second the fuzzibunz's a pic of one on a 10lber:!/photo.php...type=3&theater

The new thirsties AIO are supposed to be very trim as well...haven't had too many reviews on those though...

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! Super helpful!

I ordered a Softbums to try...also a TotsBots tini fit and a Kissaluvs newborn AIO. Hopefully my daughter doesn't outgrow those ones too soon. Think I'll hold off on the FB for now, as I generally prefer aplix to snaps, but I'll definitely keep it in mind as a future possibiilty. I didn't realize Grovia and Swaddlebees Simplex also came in newborn sizes...they aren't fleece inside, but even so, I wish i'd known sooner!

Thanks again...
