Your favorite toddler diaper for huge 19 month old girl?

I have a huge variety of diapers. I have a large (32 lbs) 19 month old girl. She hasn't gone in the potty yet but maybe soon? ..anyways, Just wondering what your favorite diaper is for a big toddler?

I have heard so many great things about those! I own 6 MEOS with the doublers. Although I do love them, I hardly use them becaasue of the bulk during the day. It is overkill for her and bulky. I use the thirsties duo size 2 over them..
what covers fit over the sandies?

I think everyone says that the Capri size 2 cover is larger than the flips & the thirsties size 2

Re: Your favorite toddler diaper for huge 19 month old girl?

We use fitteds, flats, and prefolds under wool for our 28-30lb 33" 20 month old. For flats we find even the imagine flats to be good as long as we add a doubler. For prefolds we use GMD brown edge. We were using the green edge but in the last 6 months my son's waist measurement has actually gone down 2-3". He was measuring 22-23". Now he measures about 20-21". For fitteds I like kissaluvs m/l cotton/hemp fitters and mutts large side snap fitteds. My other larges are starting to get a bit short on the rise. For covers we use disana x-large and Lanacare large. The Lanacare is actually just a bit too small. We really do need the x-large. But I think instead I will likely just knit him up a couple of soakers.

I wonder if grovia trainers would work well. I know you aren't thinking about the potty but they would probably fit and could be useful later. The run small for trainers but I think would work well for your situation.

My daughter is 20 months, 30 lb and off the charts tall. We use large aplix Bottombumpers, unsnapped aplix Flips with trifolded GMD red edge/medium prefolds, and some misc fitteds (Pianissimo PC Duet large is favorite at naptime) with pull on nylon covers or fleece pants (usually Old Navy 2T).

ETA she outgrew her Large Sandies fitteds a couple months ago didn't want to bother with Toddlerease since they were tight on the waist as well as the rise, and I had seen that Toddlerease just had a higher rise but not a bigger waist.

I would do

A) Prefolds and covers for a simple, inexpensive solution since you won't be in diapers long

Or

B) A diaper that can be pulled up and down like Sandy's or Swaddlebees Simpex 2.0 larges.
