Cover suggestions for a large 2 year old?
 
We are PLing and doing really well during the day. We have an assortment of trainers and panties that we use, but none are absorbent enough for night. We have been using disposables, but I'm sick if buying them. I like using hemp at night and I have plenty. Any suggestions on a cover large enough for a chunky 2 year old. She is about 30 pounds, but has really chunky thighs and rear. I put a Thirsties Duo size 2 on her last night and barely got it to close. It will probably be off when I get her out if bed this morning...

Capri size 2 are nice and roomy. I use them at night on my 4 yr old and he has growing room! The velco is best since you can adjust it better IMO. Flips are pretty roomy too.

Thanks! I haven't tried the Capri covers yet. We have flips, but they don't fit her well anymore because of her belly:(

The Capris are bigger than the flips so they should work. :)

Try Thirsties or Bummis L. They are roomy. I'd personally get something she can pull up & down overnight since she's so close to pling. That way she can use the potty overnight if she has to.

I was going to suggest Bummis in a L. My 2 yr old DD can fit a Bummis in M with some room still...but she is like 33 inches and 28lbs.

If you want an OS option, Blueberry Coveralls are my favorite for my 37-38 lb 2-year-old.

What would you suggest for pulling up and down. We had so many leaks in pockets that we went back to pfs and covers. I've never tried a AIO at night. I got two Simplex dipes for her to pull up and down since they are side-snapping. Does anyone know how those do for night? I could just put a hemp doubler in there.

Bummis Pull ups. They are cheap and sound just like what you would need.
