I'm open to pockets if they can combine absorbency and trimness. I

Which inserts would give me that combo?

My trimmest, best-absorbing combo on my 27 month old dd is Thirsties Duo pockets stuffed with a Thirsties hemp prefold trifolded around the hemp portion of the included doubler (I don't use the MF portion). This usually lasts 4 hours, and is surprisingly trim for that amount of absorbency.

If the trimness wasn't that important, I would definitely recommend the ME AIO. The absorbency is fabulous, and there is plenty of room to lay in extra doublers if you want. We use these for naps, outings, even overnight with a hemp doubler and cotton liner. The biggest reason I would recommend the ME AIO in your situation is that they are side-snapping and can be pulled up and down for early PLing, so you aren't investing in diapers that will be useless once she shows interest in the potty. The size XL is rated for 35-45lbs., but my 30lb dd fits in them just fine with room to grow and rows of snaps leftover to allow for fastening more loosely for PLing.

ETA: Snap EZ stuffable trainers would also be a good "diaper now, trainer later" option. In addition to Thirsties prefolds, BabyKicks prefolds are great pocket stuffers as well.

Good luck!

Re: Should I bother?

I am loving my Flips organic daypack on my 22 month old! They are really absorbant and SUPER trim! The pack came with 8 diapers/flats and 2 flip covers for only $60! A great deal IMO

This is my problem with freetimes, too. Although my son was recently sick, lost 2 lbs, and now fits in them again (after not being able to wear them for 2 months).

I really like my Large Nana's Bottoms but even with the hemp soakers, but I doubt they'd last 3 hours. You could ask her to leave the back open as a pocket, that speeds drying time, too....but then it's more of a pocket dipe than an AIO (still easier to stuff than most).

If you are willing to spend more than $20 each, I would recommend Motherease bedwetter pants or the older ME AIOs if you can find them still in size large (cheaper as ~$17, but not as absorbant). The bedwetter pants supposedly hold 20 oz and my experience with ME diapers is that they do have the advertised absorbancy and that their PUL is by far and away better than any others I've tried. Both the ME dipes could be used as PullUps, too for PL if you feel that you might not get your money's worth out of a traditional diaper at her age.

What about Flip trainers? Or would those be a pain since I'd be using them more as traditional diapers for some months first?

Id buy some alva double gussets and double stuff them with blend inserts. Cheap and absorbent. That about the ONLY thing I found worked on my 3 y/o

BG Freetimes and Bottombumpers are both AIOs under $20. They are trim, the BG Freetime is a synthetic fiber and the Bottombumpers are organic cotton.
