Cheap AI2/Cover for 2.5 year old.....????

I need to purchase a few AI2's or covers for our son....he will be 3 in August and shows no desire to potty learn......I'm not worried about it so please no suggestions or comments on that, . BTDT plenty of times.....

The PUL on most of our current boy covers has finally given out.....I do have plenty of a girly stash that I could use on him, but would rather just buy a few new cheap covers for him......so what would you suggest?? I'm thinking Diaper Rite/Junction or Nickis?? Maybe Thirsties?? I have flips and am not fond of the way those fit him....

*we use padfolded flats
*cost is a huge factor.....something really cheap
*i don't especially care for double gussets, but am open to them if needed
*AI2 or cover is fine
*he is right at 30 pounds
*prefer snaps
*I'm OK with used so feel free to spam me.

Thank you for any thoughts.......

Re: Cheap AI2/Cover for 2.5 year old.....????

I have a three yo dd, 99%tile r weight and height. I just put her in thirsties large covers, for night time. Working great. They are not snaps and have double gussets, but they are big and bullet proof. She wears the XL muslin flats from gmd under, night time only, so I just have two covers.

Eta: looks like they do come in snaps!

What was he using that gave out? How do they fit?

I think most standard OS covers stop fitting around 25-30lbs depending on build. The thristies & capri sz2 should be bigger. One my son outgrew his BGs around that weight we switch to trainer style like Snap EZ. I have some covers for sale . 2 Capri sz2 and 1 Thristies size2 but all aplix. They were used my my dd who PL around 22lbs but they were all huge on her and not used much. I can compare sizes to the flips and bummis I have if it helps at all but I don't have the other brand covers you mentioned.

We have been using Chelory/Lucybugs on him for 2 years......they are just done.....I don't want to put $25+ into more of those so looking for cheap options, but haven't a clue what to buy because that's all we use. I have tried the Capri, but don't like those.....and we don't get along with aplix...lol!

It would definitely help me if you cold compare the Flip with the Thirsties duo size 2......

it should be obvious but the pink is a flip and the bluebird is thirsties. Also the elastic on the flip is a bit relaxed while the thirsties isn't

good luck
