Re: help

If you want to make sure you have a good fit, you should get her measurements, and then compare them to the measurements of whatever dipe you want. When websites sell dipes, they always have the measurements and/or weight to go by.
If you're thinking pockets, I would try Fuzzi Bunz, as they are easy to get ahold of and work well for most people. You can use a prefold for an insert, or a microfiber insert. I prefer prefolds myself.

I would go with a large. I think that most diapers the larges start around 25-26 lbs. But that's just my As for inserts, it depends on what you like. We love microterry inserts the best.

Sounds like my oldest size wise, although I think with cloth she wont be able to fit the 12 month anymore in pants, mine wore a size 4 in huggies before we made the switch. If you are wanting to go the pocket route and opt for fuzzi bunz I might try a petite toddler, I got larges and they were big on my guy, they fit all right on the tightest thigh setting and having to cross over the waist so I think a petite toddler might have worked better, I make all his now so no worries.
As far as finding dipes on here go to http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...splay.php?f=18 and click on the category you wish.

enjoy shopping and welcome,
heidi

HI Andrea!
I'd go with a Large also for Lilly, and also recommend pockets.
Maer uses Large fuzzi bunz on Deme too. the large are good for chunky thighs, and for inserts, microfiber towels work great and also hemp.
you can find me on yim tonight if you come back online and i'll help you navigate

Re: help

What is her waist measurement? That's the most important to know when shopping for cloth I like Fuzzi Bunz with Ducky Buns inserts.

A few more options are Very Baby AIOs, and Magic Alls.

Another tip to remember, don't buy a bunch of one type of diaper until you've tried it a few times to make sure it fits and works for you and your baby Cloth is like buying a pair of jeans, sometimes it fits and sometimes it doesn't!
