OS with no rise snaps for daycare

Updating my search for daycare diapers.

I bought a bunch of Green Acre Designs diapers thinking that they would be perfect for daycare, but they kept wicking around the leg openings of his onesies.

I've ruled out and/or tried:
Softbums (not low rise enough)
Green Acre Designs (wicking)
Swaddlebees Simplex 2.0 (not low rise enough)
Blueberry Basix (wicking up the waist for some reason, and not low rise)
Applecheeks (size 1 too small, size 2 too big right now)

I'm going to try:
Fuzzibunz Elite (2013 version and the old version)
Charlie Bananas since they are at Target

So I'm open to more suggestions on what might work for us.
I'm particularly interested in stretchy, low rise, and trim.


Hi there,
This is my first post on diaperswappers. I have been researching and trying various cloth diapers for my 4 month old son. I talked to his daycare about cloth diapering, and they really, really prefer a diaper without rise snaps in front of the diaper because they have some babies with BG whose rise snaps always come undone during diaper changes. So here are the requirements by both me and the daycare. Can you help me come up with a diaper? So far, I've only been able to come up with Softbums Omni used as a pocket, and Green Acre Diaperss sized pocket.

Must be:
stay dry
no front snaps to change rise
no velcro or aplix
no flaps for the soaker (bottombumpers, PG, BG freetime, etc.)
natural fiber soaker
no more than 2 snaps per tab

Prefer:
OS, but sized is ok I guess
insert that agitates out, but I'm willing to fish out the insert after a day at daycare
easy to spray poop
trim (we use and love PG for their trimness)

Info about my kid:
chunky thighed
he has reflux so we prefer a diaper that doesn't have to go past his belly button
also, a slimmer waistband because of reflux is preferred

Thank you in advance for any advice you might be able to offer!

True, but inserts can be replaced.

Re: OS with no rise snaps for daycare

FB elites are OS with no rise snaps. They're very trim. I've stuffed them with a padfolded Osocozy flat. But they are very narrow and hard to stuff, and I'm not sure if more than a single flat would fit if you need more absorbancy.

SoftBums and Greenline, although I don't think they are pockets.

Rocky Mountain Diapers are AWESOME!!!

Or go for sized. I love sized diapers, they have a much better fit. I think the AppleCheeks look really cute:
