Re: diapering LARGE thighs?

I don't suggest side snapping; IME they are tighter on chubby thighs than front snapping. My DS is very chubby and the few side snapping things I tried left red marks.

I think for containing the poo blow-outs you need something w/good crack coverage If you are looking for fitteds, I think you might like Little Lions Classic fitteds, size medium. They are very affordable, secure w/velcro, and are generously sized. The outer knit material can snag on the velcro, that is my only complaint. If you aren't careless like I was at first (I'm not now) you shouldn't have any trouble. They do not have stay-dry inners.

Re: diapering LARGE thighs?

I have a chunkalunk and the only thing that doesn't leave her thighs marked up is our GMs. I know they are snaps, but all of the other dipes leave marks on her. I also find pull on covers to be the most gentle on her thighs, too. I like pull on fleece and wool.

That's what the issue is with AIrflow Covers... too tight/redmarks on the inside thigh snap but too loose/gaping with the outside snap.

thanks for the info! i'll keep them in mind.
but yes, crack coverage is important. LOL
I have found that the occasional time we use a disposable diaper that size 3 Huggies FIT her, EXCEPT they don't come up her butt high enough. Well the absorbant inside portion doesn't come up high enough so the EBF poos just flow right up and out the back when sitting!LOL Surprisingly, the somewhat thicker bit of binding used on the MEOS diapers seem to be JUST what is needed as that extra bit of barrier.

anyway.. thanks everyone for your input, insight, and suggestions! Looking forward to receiving today's purchases in the next while and seeing how things go from there.

I REALLY need to get my game together and wrangle up diapers we aren't using so i can fund future purchases! *sigh* don't tell hubby. lol

ID:	40902Side snapping diapers with snaps pinched *eek* both of my chunky babies thighs so I wouldn't suggest side snapping, keep the snaps away from those adorable rolls

I got softbums with doublers to solve my chunky thigh problem. The narrow crotch of softbums was good because it fit between the thighs and the leg elastic can be adjusted to super huge!

Dappis are good too, very gentle and leak proof

Side snapping.
I also loved LHC's or anything that was ruffled at the legs. Seemed to fit better...

Re: diapering LARGE thighs?

FuzziBunz one-size!! My daughter has the most gorgeous chunky thighs and I love the adjustibility of my FBs. I had BGs but sold them off and now have only FBs. You can adjust the size of the thigh opening. I usually don't bother to snap the hip snaps on the newer style. I understand the reluctance to go with snaps but they really do launder better and I'll never go back to aplix.

Yeah Dappi is too low in the back for us too, but our fitteds are super absorbant and don't leak so we get away with it. If you like the concept, I used Bummis Whisper pants over a year, they are a fuller cut than dappi and we had no rise problems. They must be air dried, but they are just as trim, soft, and leak proof.
