Looking for recommendations...

I'm at my wits end here!!!!!!! I need to find a good diaper for my little guy who is in the 10th percentile for weight and 60th for height (read: VERY long and skinny). BG 3.0 was our go-to diaper, but I've discovered that he's allergic to suedecloth

I prefer to do canadian products, but at this point will be happy with anything that fits and doesn't give him a rash. We've done mostly pockets and fitteds to date, but I'm open to anything that's not a prefold.

TIA!

ETA: WAHM moms feel free to spam as well.

Hi! Me again! We have the same problem. Brennan is not on the chart for weight (and I swear half his weight is his noggin) and in the 50% for height.

Here's what works for us:
Bum-ware (you would need to order organics)
Rainshine Designs
Berry-Plush by Jamtots
Bottombumpers
Fuzzi-Bunz

We tend to go with snapping as my other guy can take a diaper off faster than I can get one on, but that's a different story!

I'm right near you in Pender Harbour if you come down this way often. You could try something for fit before you buy

Good to know that's an option! I have one of your OS dipes in camo print (from 33andunder lol...thanks again mama!) and it fits well on the smallest snap setting to give you an idea of the size of my little guy's bum. Such a cute diaper. I think I'm doing used dipes this round though; spent waaaaaaaay to much taking in "the Olympic experience".

Monkey Doodlez makes a medium/long in bamboo fleece (CDN too), Blue Penguin-Sposoeasy also makes medium/long and FB makes petite toddler. You didn't say how much your little one weighs or his age, but these are diapers that fit my LO who is 3rd%ile and 50th%ile for ht.

Re: Looking for recommendations...

oh, thats a bit harder. I would say that small fb are probably the longest in rise of the brands that I carry in smalls. FB OS are also great because you can customize to soooo many settings. Have you tried one of those?

Hey I noticed you are ISO an ergo. I have one I am going to part with. It is green and black. I bought it a year or so back, but have only used it about a dozen times, it is in great condition. I was thinking $65 plus shipping. PM me if you are interested.

Re: Looking for recommendations...

AMP's are great as well because you can size them. The new Tuck N Go's from Monkey Doodlez may be useful as well because you can size the cover a bit. I do offer a Try Before You Buy Program if you need to test out a variety before investing

We also love the AMP. They fit long and have adjustable waist and THIGH snaps. Great for skinny little legs!

I second the AMP's. They work great & you can either use their one-size system or their 2-size system.
