Nothing better than a pair of tasty, munchable bubba thighs is there..???? My DS was a chunk 9lbs 30z monkey from birth and now, at 18 momths, he still has them even tho his waist has slimmed down a lot. I enjoy nothing better than having a good nibble on them whenever I can
As for nappies that suit chunky babies. For pockets and AIOs I would say stick with applix or side-snapping nappies as they will allow a better, snugger fit than front-fastening. I found that I got lots of gape around the wasit and thighs with front-fastening pockets which resulted in more leaks. Good examples of applix pockets are: BumGenius, Happy Heinys and Greenkids. For side-snapping pockets give Weentions a whirl as they are a very snug fit.
For fitteds I don't have as much as a problem and have quite a few front-fastening ones as I always use wool with fitteds and this stops any potential leaks.
I would say browse the classifieds and try a few different brands pre-loved to find which suit you rather than buying lots of new nappies to try. The good thinkg with cloth tho is even if you do buy new and then find it doesn't work you can always sell it on and make most of your money back
Also check out the reviews section as this in invaluable when starting out
Most importantly is have fun building your stash
