I will take pics before I change again if it does gap.

Thanks!

I only have 1 Alva, so far and it's bamboo and I love it and plan to buy quite a few suedecloth ones in a co-op, this week but now I'm growing concerned that maybe the fit won't be the same. DS won't be able to tolerate the fleece inners at all so I won't even consider ordering those. Does anyone have experience with both the bamboo and the suedecloth? Is the fit the same?

I think the fit is almost identical. They are the same size for the most part. There is one minky print (giraffe) that we have that is huge compared to the others. But all of the others (suedecloth and bamboo) I have are exactly the same size and fit the same for us.

I see exactly what you are saying and they just don't seem to be the great fit I know I am getting! They look like how FBs fit DS2 right now. Hope someone else has some ideas!

I agree...the fit looks a bit awkward. Are you able to unsnap the rise but still get a snug fit? That would be my next suggestion as it may give a little more room through the hips. While I can use the middle rise with DS, I think we get more comfortable and roomy fit on the higher rise. His waist is even tinier and thighs about the same, so it is a little harder to get the perfect fit.

^this. But I will say for some reason if I don't use a regular insert and try to use a flat or something my diapers fit really odd as well for some reason...I don't know if it's the way I fold it or what though!

Hope you figure something out though!

OMG HOW FREAKING ADORABLE!
