Skinny skinny legs

I've been cloth diapering now for 2 years and have love love loved it. I wish I would have done it with my first son. I probably should have asked sooner but, oh well. Smile Do any of you mamas have teeny tiny legged babies that you have trouble fitting with cloth? What was your fav brand for a skinny Minnie? I hated BGs, never seemed tight enough. And FBs. I think my favs are from my stash were hand made but at $30+ a pop it's not to likely I'll be investing in more. Thanks!

I'm told that skinny leg kids do well with prefolds and flats since you can get them to fit exactly.
With Aiden now that he's lost all of his baby fat on his legs, I like the hip snaps on the Kawaii mom label bamboo diapers since it allows me to tighten the leg holes and you do not have to have the waist snaps lined up exactly to the hip snaps (might lay a bit funny, but the diaper works great).

My little girl has skinny legs and the BG just don't fit her. They gap at the legs. I have been using Sunbabies. They have snaps around the legs which allow you to tighten them to fit.

Yep, the Sunbabies fit well on the skinnier legged babies. We prefer them them to BG or FB.

I wish I could help! I am having the opposite problem. My toddler is still chubby in the thighs and she is growing out of many OS diapers.

Did you know you can buy snap extenders for many diapers?

Well, a variety. FB, RaR, and many Kawaii's. I also bought a Primm'n'Proper and a Piddle Poodle that are too small.

I got one of the BG ones, I can check to see if it fits on the FB diapers for you. http://www.cottonbabies.com/product_info.php?products_id=3111

This one might make you a custom snap extender: http://convertmydiapers.com/

I made one for my self, but I hate sewing in PUL. I have a snap press, so if you want to make a PUL rectangle and mark where you want the snaps, I could do it for you, especially if you don't care what color snaps. (I would need you to verify the size of the snaps, since I only have one size die)

The extender doesn't have to be a perfect match, if it fit a few snaps that would be enough

Thanks ladies! Do any of you like the Rocky Mt with adjustable leg elastic? I've been tempted to buy some but just not sure if they would hold up.
