Have you tried WNOS pockets? Either popper or aplix fastening!
I prefer these to their side snaps on mine and can get a better fit.
That way you get your stay dry inner & your cute WN outer!
We have the opposite problem! I have never got a good fit with WNOS on any of my children.
Out of interest why do you need the stay dry layer in a fitted? We use fleece or minkee liners in our fitteds that have BV inners. I do like my WN Northern Lights with minkee topped soakers though
My Tweedlebee and Tweedlebum fitteds and some of my Holdens Landing fitteds have minkee inners too.
Also how old is your DS and what size and rise are they? You might find that a medium high rise fits better than a standard rise large for example.

Different shapes play a huge part in fit as well, what works well for one baby may not work for the next due to different shapes, trying again in a month or so can make a difference
Thanks for all your replies. I'm stuffing them with the WN 6-layer bamboo inserts. Definitely a fit issue as they're not that wet at all when they leak. We tumble them all the time so think its a gape-ing problem rather than the PUL. Currently using them with a ME Rikki over the top but does seem to make it quite sweaty with two layers of PUL.
DS2 is 14 months, in 2-3 year clothes and 23lb, so tall and thin. He was in standard rise mediums until recently but now moved to large. We've got one high rise and the rest medium.
The reason I like the stay-dry layer is that I've found with normal towelling nappies, used with a liner, that the wetness touches their skin around the top-where the nappy does up. This always made them red. Maybe it's due to boys weeing at the front more. With a stay dry layer all the moisture is kept away from the skin.
I'll check out WNOS, Tweedlebee, Tweedlebums and Holdens Landing-thanks! Any more suggestions?
