I'm new to posting on the BH forum so hope I'm not breaking any rules or protocol with this post!
I am expecting my second bub in September and am looking into what seems to be the plathora of options available in MCNs. (I used disposables with my DD but hoping to primarily use cloth with Bub 2). I did try a couple of MCNs with DD1 but she has always been very slim build and the ones I tried (BBH and a locally made brand) swam on her skinny legs and tummy resulting in leaks.
Given the genetics involved, I suspect Bub2 may also be quite slim (we'll soon see). However I want to start a small collection in anticipation and was wondering if anyone has found a particular nappy/brand/style that suits slim bubs? I know some brands talk about placing the leg elastic between bub's leg fat rolls but my DD hasn't had one of those in her entire life (she's now 2 and would be lucky to top 11kg!).
Some places have suggested I go with prefolds for the first few months then swap to pockets/AI2s/AIOs. Any thoughts on this idea? I am leaning towards using mostly pockets/AI2s for ease of drying, and preferably a one size fits most for affordabiliy of not having to constantly upsize, if I can find one that won't leak. Some brands which have been suggested to me for slim built bubs are Itti Bittis, Little Britches, and the sized BBH ones. Has anyone tried these on slim bubs? Any feedback/suggestions would be warmly welcomed.
