What AIO do you put on your chunker?

Hello! So, my 6 month old is at the 20lbs mark and I am starting to worry she is not going to fit in her diapers much longer. The rolls on her thighs are enormous and cute of course

I have found some pocket dipes that work well for her, but I am going back to work full-time and want to spend as little time dealing with diapers as possible so no stuffing for me.

What AIOs have worked for you? We use BGEs now, but I am really wanting to buy a couple more varieties (and I'm nervous the BGEs are not going to fit her much longer).

Thanks!

Re: What AIO do you put on your chunker?

You might be surprised - if she's 6 months old, she will probably start being more mobile soon, and it's amazing how much she will slim down then (she'll still keep growing, of course, just "up" instead of "out" for a while lol. I have a toddler DS who I've always referred to as my "jolly green giant" b/c of how big he is, and he fit into BGEs until he was 2 and I quit CDing him for a while when I got pg w/ DD (he was 35 inches tall and 30 lbs at the time).

I have lots of BG 3.0 AIOs that I'm happy with, but they are discontinued (you can find them on FSOT though), otherwise the only ones I have are Ragababes, but they are a giant PITA to get right now. I'm sure some other mama's will chime in with other suggestions, but my bet is she'll be just fine in her BGEs. Hope this help!

Tots Bots are working great for my giant chunkster. He's 10 months, 28 pounds, and TB have been really gentle on the thighs!

Ds is 18 months & hasn't slimmed down yet. My kids didn't until they hit 3-4 years.

Right now he has BG sized large AIO's that I am about to have converted to snaps.

I'm also trying to find AIO's that fits a chunky 30 lb toddler. He doesn't fit in his BGE's in waist or rise.

My favorite AIO is Bright Star Baby. The elastic is super gentle on chubby thighs.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will have to give them a try....and maybe she will slim down once she starts moving...I can't imagine that will be long

The side snap BottomBumpers either sized or OS work great for chunky babies. And will work as they slim down too.
