Best fitteds for a kid this shape?

We have always struggled somewhat with diapers that fit my kids. Right now I am needing advice for a 7 week old who is already 13lbs. Like my other kids, he is very small on bottom. He legs are skinnish, the tush is almost non-existent and the rise would be about average. I find that aplix fits much better than snap options because seriously, my kids have flat booties.

What is your recommendation for a fitted?

preferably with aplix option, sized options (vs OS), something with a narrow crotch area and something non-bulky (he is not a heavy wetter).

Right now we have some BG medium fitteds that seem to be okay. Also some BSRB that are a bit wide but still fit pretty good.

In the past, I have had good luck with Dream Eze, Blueberry and Swaddlebees brands. Any other suggestion of brands I should consider?

And please do not say to try prefolds. I'd like to stick with fitteds!

For hard to fit LOs I usually suggest Sandy's fitteds because they're side snapping so youccan adjust waist and legs separately. Not sure how they'd fit on bumless littles though.

My kid has no booty and sandys work well. The stretchy waist keeps the diaper in place. Everything else slips off, showing his crack. I prefer the softness of the bamboo ones, by far.

I love Sandys, especially bamboo!

Take a look at Nanas Bottoms. I am living her fitteds right now and they are inexpensive to try a few. Her touch tape is incredible and very adjustable!
