WAHM diapers for toddlers (i.e. longer rise)

This isn't anything for sure, but in the event that things work out the way DF and I are planning in the next month or so, I may have the opportunity to expand my stash beyond flats/prefolds and Flips. I'm looking mainly into AIO's and AI2's because right now, I need simplicity. I'll look at pockets too, but they are 3rd on my list... After a lot of thought and looking around more than I ever did when we first started cloth, if we do what we are planning, I want anything else I buy to be made by a WAHM. The problem I'm having is that a lot of WAHM diapers I've gotten to try in the past seemed to have a shorter rise than most mainstream diapers I've tried. Waist is fine, as my man is long but lean...

So... I need

WAHM's who make diapers:...
-with a long rise (think bumGenius or longer)
-AIO, AI2 (with insert, or just a cover that I can put some kind of insert in)
-prefer natural fibers for the absorbing layers, can have a stay dry layer though!
-snap and/or hook-and-loop (I'll need some for home and some for daycare)

If you can, please leave a link

For pockets, Pixie fluff has a great wingspan and rise. I know it's third on your list, I have the same issue, and it is hard to find a good fit for solid babies....BG's were on our last notch at 10 months = /

Megaroo OS fitteds fit my 37 inch super talk 2 year old. I think she makes AI2s as well. Nanas Bottoms are supposed to be big too as are Piddle Poddles.

Little Boppers Ai2s and Bugga Bugga Boutique are both generous in sizing, especially in the rise

I was crossing my fingers someone would say BBB. I had tried an older AIO and it was really short. But I was hoping it was because it was older... That's defenitely one on my list now. I'm so excited to try others too!

hi! They are made to sit under the belly button for a trim fit, but my elastic used to be much tighter than it is now, i loosed it a bit whaich makes for a much more generous fit

Try Mud Butt Diapers (the Mighty version), also 123 Cloth Me, Lucybugs & NoNoNiko make larger diapers. Check etsy and hyenacart. Any wahm that uses the Baabaababy pattern will fit up to 40lbs.

Thanks Heather I love that fit under the belly, but this one was just uber small. I bought it used though, so idk, maybe the previous owner was really rough and shrunk it. But my son is long and lean and he was showin' a plumbers crack I've been stalking you hyena cart for September 7th though!

Awesome

I also make Long sizes by request ( small long, medium long, large long, etc) that add 1" to the rise if that's ever something you need
