HELP! What fits a fat baby? *added pics*

I'm just so frustrated, I've tried a little bit of everything with very limited success. The only things that are working really well right now are petite FB's and Crickett's fitteds.

DS is extremely chubby, he is basically a big butterball, lol. He has a gut, fat thighs, and huge "cheeks". It's adorable, but is making it super hard to find cloth that works! Anyone else have this problem? What works for you?
Here he is in his nighttime sposie :

No side-snapping fitteds, only front snap. PFs are GREAT. Also, contours work well. Anything that has a highly adjustable fit. You could also try some 'low rise' fitteds. The hard thing about fat babies is getting it to fit around the waist and thighs without having the rise too high.

Mine were VERY chubby too.
These were my favorite fit. http://bunny-patch.com/
but back then I got a fleece one. Got it extra big and it was the best night diaper ever!!! way better than a disposable. (couldn't find a disposable that wouldn't leak at night)

Preston's Pants. They have a belly dip for buddha bellies, then come up in the back a bit to prevent plumber's crack.

Colleen will work with you on measurements to an extent - her Skinny Large is made specifically for fat thighed slimmer kiddos; you might do well with her older "medium long" option. The Skinny Large may still work for you though on a larger snap setting then what we're currently using - the thighs are honestly some of the most comfortable I've seen.

We also do well with the size large BG AIO's, but if he has a large belly you may not like how far apart the tabs are/might not fit well.

I have no input other than to say what a doll he is! Do you just want to gobble him up every day?

oh mama I hear you
and we've tried a ton, fuzzi bunz didnt work because they cut her legs open, berry plush are hardly fitting now

the only ones which do fit without making huge red marks are pot belly pig design pockets, prestons pants , bum genius, babybear fitteds, apple bottom baby fitteds, bottombumpers...
