Pockets for Large Toddlers?

My DS's in cloth are 3.5 34 lbs, tall & skinny, and the "baby" 21mo, 32 lbs. and super chunky. I just moved my stash to Happy Heiny OS pockets & we have some Large FB. The HH OS are beginning to cut into the thighs of my toddler. The Large fuzzibunz fit only during the day with the lightweight inserts, but we can't fit into them with nighttime inserts. Any suggestions? I need an XL pocket and all i can find are Fuzzibunz in white.

I'd really love some in colors. any help, please?

thank you!

Large Knickernappies run larger than most large diapers. Snap-Ez makes diapers and trainers for bigger kids; they come in lots of colors and are great quality.

I only have experience with BumGenius 3.0 pockets but my boys were not in diapers at that weight so I'm not sure if they would be any bigger.

The Bumtique is great for large toddlers. Extended tabs are an option. My 40lb 4yo still fits them really well!

Aren't Alvas the ones that are de-laminating so badly?

I don't really want custom ones. Was hoping to get cheaper.

They had a bad batch of one color of pul but they replaced them for free. I haven't had a problem with any of my alvas that came from a fb group where they are ordered 500 plus at a time and that is the only issue I have seen.

AMPs (Anne Marie Padorie) pockets come in XL and are awesome. When I switched my daughter to those for night-time stuffing I went from it being tight on the biggest snaps on their Large to the smallest snap settings on the XL - lots of room to grow! I used them for a few days as "pull-ups" when we potty trained by barely stuffing and putting the snaps on the outer/bigger settings so she could easily pull them up and down.
