Trim diaper options? Flat?

Trying to go back to cloth after a month and a half off sposies (just moved states). Ds can't seem to sit up while wearing a kite folded flat with a diapersafari cover and pants. It is too bulky for him. Is there a better fold I should look into? Its a little better in a fuzzibunz elite, but an Alva baby diaper was really bulky too. I can't just replace my entire stash with fuzzibunz. Most of my stash is flats and prefolds.

My ds has some motor delays, and I'm really thinking that if he can't sit in cloth while wearing pants, we will have to probably to right back to sposies.

Flip covers or Econobums are the trimmest I've used with flats. Maybe try pad-folding? Nothing unfortunately is going to be quite as thin as a sposie, but if you are determined to use cloth, gdiapers are almost as trim as a sposie. (I'd say they ARE as trim as a sposie, personally.)

Sometimes that honestly has to do with where the diaper is hitting him on his rise. Maybe try going for a higher or lower rise so the bulk of the waist part of the diaper is not hitting him right were he bends if that makes sense. If that doesn't work - I would go for something comfy and stretchy. Sandy's or MEOS fitteds and pull on wool were awesome for that with my boys!

Nana's bottoms are really trim, like sposie trim but in my experience not super absorbent. They are often posted on FSOT so if you want to try some out you could get them there or just order them directly from the site. They are super affordable at around $10/diaper new.

I've heard people say that side snapping diapers can help with this issue...

Peachy Green AIOs and Bottombumpers AIOs are the trimmest diapers we tried. Blueberry Simplex sized AIOs are trim, and the stretchy sides seem comfortable. I personally think side-snapping diapers with front elastic seem the most comfortable for babies when sitting and moving around (ex. Sun Seedlings, ME Sandy's, Nanipoos, Green Acre Designs, Knickernappies, or diapers made from Fattycakes pattern.)
