How do Alva Baby diapers fit?

Struggling to find a diaper to fit my 6 month old with chunky thighs & skinny waist. So far we've tried BG 3.0, Happy Heineys & Flips with no luck. We mostly do pinned prefolds & covers but I want something easy to change for nights & the diaper bag. Will Alvas fit well?

Hmm. Not sure for skinny 6mo old with big thighs.
Alvas do have a crossover snap but are wide between the legs on a younger lo. But then again, you're used to pf's and covers so it shouldn't be too much of an adjustment for you. The leg elastic is way gentler than bgs... bgs used to leave horrible red marks on ds' thighs.
FYI: Alva has diff inners and each one sortof runs diff size-wise.
PUL with bamboo inner run small
minky with bamboo inner run true to size
PUL with suedecloth inner run true to size
PUL with microfleece inner run small

Hope this helps!

I would think you could get a pretty good fit as long as you chose diapers with the cross over snaps. My baby girl has chunky legs and an average size tummy and they are my favorite diaper right now! (I also have tots bots, Grovia AIO's, Sunbaby's, flips, best bottoms, apple cheeks, babykicks 3g, etc) and I always go through my Alva's first!

I love my Alva diapers .. mostly the double color snaps with internal gussets I just ordered 12 more .. they fit my son at 2 who has outgrown the legs on the BG's ...
