In my never ending endeavor to help you decide what will work best for your babe I have created this fit feedback page. Please help other cloth diapering moms by telling us what size and body type your babe is and what works and does not work your you!

Just fill out this form or send me an E-Mail (inge at diaperware dot com) with the following information:

Age (in months)
Weight (in lbs)









What products (brand and size) fits and does not fit on your babe? Including diapers, covers, inserts, doublers and all products that fit babes.

Do I have permission to add your feedback to this page on my site?

 

And I will post data here organized by body types as I get time!

 

Skinny Waist, Average Thighs, Average Waist:

Swaddlebees looked great but leaked ALL over.
Tried a MotherEase one-size diaper, which absorbs fine, but makes our girl very unstable because of all the stuff between her legs!
Fuzzibunz
covers (S/M) used with an infant prefold - hemp or Chinese - work well, especially at night.
Best fit we've found is Bummis SuperWhisper wrap with infant/premium Chinese prefolds. Low maintenance and inexpensive, too. And with how skinny she is, her pants actually stay up!
(Inge's note: sounds like she was too skinny for the Swaddlebees and fit is critical to function with pocket diaper. Babes with differences in leg and waist have the hardest time finding a pocket with good fit.)

 

Average Waist, Chunky Thighs, Long Rise:

T's daughter is now 14 months (and we've been on a quest for cloth diapers that fit and work well for most of that time ... lots of good/great things ... just nothing just right)
I think she's just about 22 pounds; average built except a very long body, I guess her butt and thighs are kind of chubby which with her average waist makes for a gap in the front of many diapers and covers because of lack of stretch or adjustability.
Any fitted or AIO that has a short ("trim" ugh!) rise does not work for us. For example, as wonderful as Rumpsters look, their regular sizing (haven't tried a new long if they're out) does not work for us at all. Many diapers that only have one row of snaps across the front also don't work well as they either are too loose on the waist and/or gap at the bell or are too tight on the thighs or both! Side snap diapers often leave us with other fit issues and need to be exactly the right size to work.
Kissaluvs
do fit really well though thanks to the stretch. Adjustability and stretchiness seem to work the best for us. Now that containment isn't as much of an issue I'm using fewer fitted diapers though and more flats, prefolds, etc. I don't have as much of a problems with covers fitting and can often use a wide range of cover sizes as long as it fits over the diaper(s) I'm using. I do need either nice strechy waistbands or velcro or snaps that offer lots of adjustablity (overlapping) is nice in order to deal with the waist fit issue but most covers seem to have that.

 

Teeny baby, Average waist, Average thighs, Short rise:

Prowraps size preemie works well for her short rise-these started fitting at 5 lbs (when she was about 14 weeks old) and still fit now. they are getting snug in the waist but still fit well for her rise. they contain poo and pee very well! these are great covers!
Kushies Ultra (all-in-one) Preemies are too bulky and the tabs do not accomodate her belly circumference, but the rise is okay. the kushies Newborn Ultra (all-in-one) size has a very high rise, too high even now with her being over 18 inches long and i do not like the way the tabs are in front with this size either.. the gussets (crotch area) do not lie snug against her skin, so poo and pee seeping out is an issue. I wouldnt reccomend these for short babies or babies with average-chunky bellys.
Fuzzi Bunz size small... way too big!!!! not only in rise but also the waist. it will be a while before she can get use out of this size.I am a big FB fan & I am going to order the preemie size and see how that works.

Age: 1 month
Weight: 12lbs
Waist: 16" (at navel)
Thigh: 9"

Snappied infant CPF with small pull-on Dappi pants - fine no leaks even though leg-holes look a little big. Aristocrat (small) - no leaks. Tend to use these in the house during day or at night as very bulky.
Swaddlebee snap pockets (small) - very trim but outer gets wet with hemp-inserts. Insert is totally soaked, do not leak with infant cpf but very bulky, or with microfibre towel inserted in pocket along with swaddlebee hemp-insert (not quite as bulky).
Rumpster - AIO (small) print, have not had any leaks.
Bum genius - husbands favourite, although he prefers me to stuff them as he has large hands. No leaks.
I like the look of snaps, but prefer aplix as easier to get a better fit. I change his nappy through the night.

I found the swaddlebees medium size fleece cover fits low on the rise. It works well with size 1 Kissaluvs. They come up to just below the navel on my son. Trying to fit a premium size prefold in this cover results in a lot of bulk. It doesn't work with any other fitted that I have. If I decide to buy any more I will probably want to size up.
Kissalus size 1 fitteds fit well, they are nice and stretchy, there is still some room to grow, however the rise is pretty low, fitting at least 1-2 fingerbreadths below the navel. I prefer a higher rise, so these are not among my favorites.
I love the Bummis Super Whisper Wraps! I have size mediums. These fit great with lots of room to grow and work with all of my diapers requiring a cover. Ditto for the Stacinator merino stretch daytime wool cover. I use the second snap from outside towards the center, I get no markings at the leg and waist on this setting.
Fuzzi bunz size medium fits great with plenty of room to grow. I use the middle snap at both the leg and waist with no marks and no leaks. The rise is high, it fits a good two fingerbreadths above the navel. We don't mind, though.
I use premium size prefolds. They fit well in the Bummis wrap covers annd the stacinator wool cover, but I do have to fold down a little in the front, otherwise they extend above the covers. Even so the bulk is not too much.

Fuzzi bunz (mediums) don’t fit my son very well; they leave gaps around the thighs, even on the tightest setting, and even after a lot of adjusting, etc.
Bum Genius dipes fit my son very well (on the middle setting)
Bummis super whisper wraps (size Medium) fit my son very well (probably the best of all)
Stacinator deluxe fleece covers (medium) fit my son well on the tightest setting
Swaddlebees fitteds (medium) fit my son on the middle setting very well and contain blowouts really well. These probably fit him the best of any diaper we’ve used in the past 7 months!!!
Cotton babies inserts seem a bit too long for fuzzi bunz (medium) and bum genius dipes (on the middle setting)
Mother of eden inserts and doublers work really well in fb and bg dipes.
Happy heiny’s hemp ovals work very well overnight for absorbency and don’t add bulk.
Premium size prefolds work fairly well on my son if we use a bummis super whisper wrap and a snappi.
Infant size prefolds worked well as doublers in fb for a while, but seemed to add to much bulk and sometimes caused leaks. They also seemed to stretch out the elastic in the fb.
Happy heiny’s print pocket dipes did not fit my son well. Even when fastened tightly they seemed to get baggy in between his legs.

We only have the bumGenius!, but they fit great!

In the meantime I obtained both a sample of Mommy’s Touch and BumGenius to compare. My husband liked the convenience of the BumGenius diaper – it was the first one we received. When he saw the Mommy’s Touch, he simply said “Can you say ‘More trouble’?” I think all these buttons scared him!
I’m still not sure if I could figure out the medium setting in a correct way (Mommy’s Touch). What I like about it is the sturdier outer fabric – that of the BumGenius seems much thinner?
I like the flap over the pocket. Mommy’s Touch does not have it, and I wonder if that might cause a problem (a.k.a. leaking).
BTW, I took both diapers to a friend’s house to try them on her children. The Mommy’s Touch fit both the 3 month old baby (forgot the weight), and the 3 year old toddler, ca. 34 pounds, with a button on each side to spare. BTW, the toddler is not fat, but on the stocky side. I could not check the BumGenius with the toddler, as the baby went ahead and used it! LOL
I found the inserts rather bulky, but I know that, for a little baby, one should have smaller inserts anyway. A friend of mine said the inserts are supposed to be folded? I asked her if they are meant to go from front to back of the diaper when you insert them, or if that means the insert is too big.
I guess the jury is still out for the choice of diapers! ;-)
