Re: Chubby thigh help, AGAIN!

Personally, I'd go with fitteds and either a fleece or wool soaker on top. It doesn't matter so much if the diaper is on properly, because the soaker will hold it all in place. I've had many sloppy prefold jobs on my wriggly DS but we never had any leaks with a soaker on.

Basically, I'd slap on the prefold or fitted while DS was rolling on the changing table, then I'd lift him up and put his feet through the soaker, and then use gravity to get the soaker on

FWIW, my DS also had huge thighs and a thin waist for much of his diapered life, and it was hard to find something that fit well. Side snapping diapers did fit better, but I personally liked using the wool soakers with prefolds mostly.
