Ok..I obviously know that cloth is a bit bulkier than disposables but are there any ways to reduce the bulk..Im finding that some of my daughters pants won't fit over her diapers right now..we're using prefolds and covers until she can fit into her one size pockets but I

Prefolds and covers are going to be probably the bulkiest option. I find that many pants don't fit, especially jeans. My kids wore lots of sweat pants and dresses or just a t shirt with a super cute print diaper cover to match. Another option is using wool longies, it's a cover and pants all in one. That's what my latest baby usually wears.

There are other trimmer diaper options. When I have a special outfit that I need a trim diaper for I have a few AI2s (Daisy Doodles) I use.

From my experience, which is limited at best, she will.

Since posting this my little one has put on a bit of weight and the diaper no longer looks huge on her..LOL..she was so scrawny but now has more meat to her so it looks like she's wearing a diaper not a tent..LMAO..

Aw Yay! My little guy was already walking when we made the switch so I'm glad to hear that she doesn't have so much of a balloon butt now! Guess I'll know just what you mean in a few short weeks when my third makes his arrival! :)
