Miss skinny-legs - what type of CD?

I have a friend who is just beginning the switch to CD's. She has a chunky 7 mo and a skinny-minny little 2 yo . She just bought med. FB's for both babes. They seem to work well for the little one, but she gets messy blow-outs with the 2 yo - her guess is that she's just too skinny for the leg openings.

For those of you with skinny toddlers, what's your CD of choice? Any tips on avoiding a mess?

TIA, Mamas.

It depends on how skinny. What are her measurements? If less than 18" in the waist I'd try a petite FB. Fuzzi Fannies Creations (FF) are great. Rachele makes a medium long that might work if she's really thin. SNAP-EZ SEZ - has a skinny large that should fit through PL. Maybe a GAD size large, to me it's more of a long medium.

My petite girls always had to wear PT fuzzibunz. What size is she trying?
Maybe proraps covers would work too? The legs gussets would probably help.

Depends on the rise. I found the snap-ez skinny large had too low of a rise (I will be selling them on here next week). I really like the fit of the petite toddler FB and the large happy heinys. I use the large FB for super stuffed overnight dipes.

I have a super skinny 2 year old and very chunky 5 month old and the Very Baby AIO Medium-Long fits both of them really well. The rise is slightly high in the baby, but since she's not up and walking, and generally in onesies these days, it doesn't really matter.

Aplix is good. I think anything really side-snapping/bikini fit would work because the cut is higher up. Prefolds!
