Best AIOs for a skinny baby?

Hello!

My baby girl is eleven and a half weeks old. A week ago yesterday she weighed 11lbs8oz, and measured 24 inches long. We're visiting my mom right now, and we pulled out my baby book. I was the same weight and length at the same age, and I stayed a skinny baby, so I don't see my little girl turning into a chubba anytime soon! I always thought I'd have fat babes, but she's healthy and that's what matters. Do any of you ladies out there with a skinny minnie like mine have any advice/opinions on the best AIOs? So far we've only tried the old style of BGE, and I've ordered a Swaddlebees Simplex 2.0, but haven't tried it yet. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks.

I have a 17lb 19 month old so yes I have a skinny baby. The simples os is a great fit for my skinny girl. And it is not bulky.

Re: Best AIOs for a skinny baby?

Love Grovia for a skinny kid. I bought two new Simplex OS to try and was not impressed with the quality -- PUL was not as soft and rise snaps would not stay closed on either diaper even when I was trying to put the diapers on. The snap issue was really disappointing for a $26 poop catcher and was enough to turn me off. I have had two bad snaps (one on a well-loved BGE, the other on a Thirsties fitted) across all of the other 50+ diapers in my stash, but I would estimate that 4 of the 6 rise snaps on the two Simplex diapers were bad :-( I know that others have had similar issues, though it's certainly not universal.

Thirsties Duo AIO is working beautifully for my skinny one. And they are cheaper than average too!

BGE elemental. -old style

My youngest was 16 lbs at a year. She will be 3 this week and she is only 26/27 llbs now.

We love our BGE. The OS simplex is our second favorite. When she was little we used the sized simplex.

Side snapping diapers are going to be great for a skinny baby.

LOVE all the BG. We primarily use BGE during the day, freetimes at night. The bottombumpers are also pretty nice for my skinny girl.

I love our BGEs old style but for a skinny baby I think Grovia would be the best fit. DS2 seems to like the narrowness of the Grovia
