Comparison of diaper styles

I am pulling my hair out trying to decide which diapers to go with for M. I decided to start this thread because

1. It may help someone else
2. I want your opinions
3. DH is out of town so I'm officially on vacation.

He is 20 pounds and 27.5 inches tall.
6.5 months old.

BG 4.0 stuffed with a GMD yellow prefold. Way too bulky in the rear.



BG 4.0 with a Geffen flat. Not liking the width between the legs.

Comparison of diaper styles





OS Simplex
Perfect between the legs, but the back is still pretty poofy.





This one is a brown edge (large) prefold under a size 2 wrap. It's nice but there's no way clothes are going over this well.

The diapers don't fit under clothes very well.

I just tried a one size flat under a Flip and then put stretchy (around the house type) pants on him. This is seeming the best so far as far as trimness.

I do but I don't have any workhorses in his size so I'm trying to go through my stash again and make sure of what I want to do before I buy anything.
