Rise too short?

So now that the weather is cooling off some, I've pulled out some jeans for DS to wear. I've found, though, that the rise isn't long enough to accomodate his fluffy bum? The jeans are 12-18 month - way too long in the legs, but way too short in the crotch. I'm upset. They are brand new!! Anyone else have this problem? This is the first time I've run into the problem of clothes not fitting due to cloth.

Right now he is wearing a Large BG AIO which is kind of big on him so maybe that's it? Maybe a flat and a Flip will do better?

Flats and Flips are super trim. We don't have a problem with the pants fitting but they do stick out over the top in the back. They still fit though and they are fine in the front.

Megaroos (or any bamboo ETPF) is also super duper trim under a Flip.

Cloth or not, not all jeans fit every baby. Try a trimmer diaper if you have one, or find a brand that fits better and stick with it. I like Boden.

I have the same issue, the back part of the pants are pulled down but the front is fine ;-)

From experience with baby blessed with big bottoms, I found H&M to be really accommodating. Never have a problem putting fluff under their pants.
