Re: Trying CD again, help me decide what I want?

Yes, when it comes down to it, I think I just need one type and use that, the idea of an AIO or snap in appeals to me for ease of someone else diapering and helping with laundry and I feel like the snap in gets,clean more like a flat?
I just know right now I've got a laundry basket full of inserts, flats, pockets, covers and AIO, and a best bottom.s snap insert. Its the sorting and folding, figuring out what to stuff in what diaper that really bugs me. Impatient and lazy, probably: ) I just already do at least one usually two loads of laundry a day already and I need simple.

I liked grovia snap ins back in the day, but were too pricey. I made my own system buy sewing flats with stay dry and addin snaps, both to the flat and the covers I wanted because I didn't like any of my options.

Re: Trying CD again, help me decide what I want?

I'm thinking I like the thirsties prefolds, and my geffen flats, in covers or maybe some of my pockets as covers?
I like how trim the thirsties are, they seem to do ok on their own?
I like the soft, trim jersey, it absorbs a lot without bulk?
The Flip cover I have is way too wide in the crotch for him.
From what I've read, would weehuggers, capris, or thirsties duos be good for a thinner taller baby? I prefer sized vs the one size, the snaps and rise seem to always bunch up and add bulk?

Capris will be similar width. For a tall, slender baby, Grovia shells may be a great option. They have a high rise and are significantly trimmer through the crotch. However, they do have rise snaps. I've used them in the past with thirsties prefolds and it was a nice, trim combination.

Thanks! I've got a grovia shell, think I'll have to play around with it to get a good fit, not used to side snaps I like how trim it is but me not used to side snaps and him doing a roll while trying to change him often means a wonky fit

Re: Trying CD again, help me decide what I want?

The grovia cover is used with there snap in inserts in a front snap / aplix. Those are known for being trim - personally I would have said too trim for trifolding/padfolding but i read about people doing it all the time. Not sure about the side snap AIO that you have. Size 2 capris and thirsties are both on the wide side and fit larger than there lower weight would suggest. (thristes duo sz1 are great though).

Thristies sized not as sure about they are known to be a fit for around fitteds or attached prefolds/fats I never had one bigger than a small. Since you like aplix and sized you can look into bummis, they recently went out of business but you might be able to find them around on clearance still. They are one of my favorites, I used them for trifolding prefolds with my son.

Have you tried the flip? I have a very trim/slim little girl and the flips/BGs fit well on her. I don't really understand it but I imagine its the lack of a double gusset. We try to do wool but when we can't she is usually in a flip or a bummis cover with a sewn into an insert padfold flat or a diaper safari trifold insert. they both fit her great, course the med bummis is trimmer through the middle.

Re: Trying CD again, help me decide what I want?

That's so interesting! I tried a bummis when he was smaller, and it was too big overall, seemed baggy even though it was the "right size". Yeah I have a Flip I want to like but I can't seem to get a good fit on it? When I snap the rose to reduce the sagging in the crotch it comes too low in front and I feel like he might leak out the top? But that's my problem with most any diaper, I haven't figured out how to get a good fit .
The only ones that seem to fit pretty easy are the Nana bottoms AIO aplix I have and my Bottombumpers, also aplix and sized.
Maybe I need to search around for a fit troubleshooting thread
