I'm hoping someone can help with getting my 5mo, very (very) chunky DS into cloth properly without too many more leaks or bright red legs!
I have a nearly 8 year old who was in cloth but things have changed a lot since, and she was a slight wee thing. I don't know how heavy DS is now, but he was 18lbs at 12 weeks, so he's well into the 20s now I guess! He doesn't fit into any of the size 1 nappies/wraps I had for DD and hasn't done for ages. Size 2 tots (left overs) look enormously bulky on him (he's already quite wide!). I have tried the wonderoos that worked really well for DD and they always leak. Every time.
I bought some Flip covers which seem about the best so far, but we've had a couple of leaks when using with a prefold rather than the insert. These are the only nappies where he's not on the loosest popper at the leg!
I also have
Gen Y Universal - Large size, using last thigh poppers and still gets really red legs, smallest waist and it leaked.
Rumperoos - last popper at the legs, no leaks, but seem expensive if there's no growing room.
Blueberry coverall - can't remember which popper, but there wasn't much room round the legs. (are you sensing a theme here?!)
The Flip covers are on the second to last popper round the leg too.
He in the biggest rise on all of these - I tried going down, but there's no way they'd fit. (He's tall too, in 6-9 clothes, but I only buy from generously cut shops, so prob 9-12 in most places)
I'm beginning to lose hope after 2 more leaks and some startlingly red legs earlier
Please does anyone have experience in fitting the extremely generously proportioned thigh?
