Finding a diaper for heavy wetting toddler.... *Updated with Mother-ease pictures*

I am having a hard time finding a good diaper for my 16 month old. He drinks a lot during the day....three (sometimes four) 8oz cups of milk, and two 6oz cups water. I have tried not giving him as much to drink, but he will constantly cry and ask for his cup. Because of this, he is out peeing all his diapers in about 1 hour to 1.5 hour. We outgrew the absorbency of BGE's a long time ago, and I have tried several inserts in his BG 4.0's and we still get leaks. We have tried the two microfiber inserts, joeybunz, and thirsties hemp prefolds. We are even getting leaks with the size 2 thirsties hemp prefolds! The only thing that seems to hold so far is the Flip organic, but I am wondering what my other options are? Are there any really good comfortable fitteds that would work for heavy wetters? I was considering sbish, but I am not sure how great those are for daytime use. I did just get a Mother Ease One Size, and small Sandies to try, but they are still prepping so idk how they are going to work yet.

Well....I tried my Motherease One Size and Motherease Sandies, and after two hours they were barely damp on the outside at all. I am impressed .

Well I was going to suggest Mother-ease, but it looks like you are already on it! I hope they continue to work for you. We love them!

Wow, I'm happy to see that they are working so well for you! I have been really wanting to try Sandy's lately, and MEOS again as well(I had one when DS was about 9 mos, and I really just didn't care for it at the time... it just seemed kind of, baggy). Now that he's much bigger, I really want to try them again!
Would you happen to have any action shots of the two?

Re: Finding a diaper for heavy wetting toddler....

Ok I got some pictures, but he wasn't very happy with me. Both diapers are the bamboo terry w/doubler, and the Sandy's is a size small. I think I like the fit of the Mothease Sandy's better. The MEOS is still a little baggy in his behind. He is almost 17 months, and about 19lb's.

Thanks for the pics! I swore off ME dupes (but not covers) when everyone rave about MEOS and it has never ever fit my LO his entire life! He is now 23mos and still too weird to wear regularly.. Def a last resort on laundry day dipe here.
So that's a small sandy's? I gotta check sizing. The pics are very helpful for comparison. Thank u thank u !!!
