My ds is the same way, he has such a short rise too. He is 17 months and still on the smallest rise setting on bg's and almost the smallest waist snaps. We've had GREAT success with Rainshine Designs! The mediums are a perfect fit. I think Peachy Greens would work too and I like to stuff my bg's with Alva bamboo inserts. They are so soft and flexible they can give a trim fit between the legs.

Just got a few RSD pockets & will be using bamboo prefolds & flats inside the BG. I am glad to hear this combo worked!

Re: DS = no hips, skinny thighs & no butt

DD has always been really skinny with no butt. She's 18 months and around 20ish lbs. After trying what seemed like a dozen brands we settled on BG 4.0 and Flip and Diaper Safari covers with Imagine Bamboo PFs. I love my stash!

This is us with a really long rise. Almost 18 lbs still on the second snap of his medium simplex but he's starting to outgrow the rise. No idea where to go next

eh, I bet a ME Sandy would fit. The elastic on those is great. But not a ton of bulk for a heavy wetter. I add a doubler sometimes for long outings/naps and two doublers for overnight.

I think they are a bit longer in the rise, but we love them. With all the snaps, we are able to get a really good fit.

Yep we are using sandy's as "pull ups" around the house to try to potty train

In relation to this post, those that have a baby the same shape, does snap diapers work? I am worried about getting a bunch of BG aplix
& having it all wear out

Nothing really fits my ds well. We settled for large Simplex. They are really absorbent and trim.
