Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

I'm new to cloth diapering, but have found out quickly I don't prefer the fluff! I can't fit my 6 month old DD in her regular-sized pants with a fluffy butt! In your opinion--what is the trimmest cloth option available?

Re: Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

I know it's 'old fashioned', but of all I tried, I like flats with a thirsites duo or econobum cover.
I started CDing when DS was a lil over a year and walking. Prefolds were too bulky and didn't fit him right and took a while to dry. I also tried a gdaiper- not bad, but for heavy wetters or older ones, you would need a thicker/more insert. The bumgenius pockets were ok, but still not as trim as flats.

If using flats, do you fold them to use like an insert inside the cover or do you wrap around baby, use a snappi and then a cover?

Re: Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

The trimmest fabrics will be hemp or bamboo. Sized is usually trimmer than one size, a nice compromise is a two size system, such as Thirsties, and I think a few others (maybe ones and twos, and applecheeks?) I find Bububibi pockets to be VERY trim and inexpensive. I also love my Grovia's with a hemp or bamboo insert instead of the organic cotton.

Gdiapers are the trimmest of all the systems I've tried. But I agree with pp that they are not ideal for heavy wetters.

I do have some gDiapers...DD is too big for smalls and mediums aren't the best fit right now. Do you use the actual gDiaper inserts or do you use something different?

I usually use the gcloth because they look nice. : ). But if I'm going to be leaving the house for a couple hours or it's naptime I use a gflapper from the nappyshoppe. They have more layers of hemp and are very absorbent. They also make other material options like bamboo or cotton.

Re: Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

My son is a heavy wetter and the babykicks 3g one size pocket diaper work great for him and are very trim. The only downside is that because they are so narrow they can be hard to stuff.He can wear them under blue jeans though and the leg casings are very soft - which is important because he has sensitive skin.

Re: Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

The trimmest thing I have found is a Fuzzibunz One-Size stuffed with a small Thirsties Hemp Insert (55% hemp/45% cotton). This insert is fast absorbing so its ok to stuff alone the insert is also super absorbant. If you have a heavy wetter you may consider a large insert.
