Did you catch my earlier post this week of my toddler in his AIO cloth diapers at 30 pounds? If not check it out, and then check out how he’s fitting into everything else below.
I had the panic around 9-10 months. My baby chunked out and I went “how will he ever last in these cloth diapers?” At 25 pounds before a year, he was quick to grow, and quick to cause panic. With hundreds of dollars invested into a cloth diaper stash, I was terrified it wouldn’t last until potty training. Much to my relief cloth diapers at 30 pounds (plus) still fit. However, I’m very glad he has shown interest in toilet training. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do if we hit 40 pounds in diapers. But don’t jinx me, because he is not fully trained and just potty-curious.
My toddler is now 2. During this photoshoot in the month of May/June/July, he weighed in at about 32-35 pounds. He is 34″+ tall (he went thru a growth spurt at some point and continues to grow in these photos). My toddler fits well into 2T clothing (slowly veering into 3T, but he’s a boy). He’s tall, and stalky. I find he’s less chunk/chubb, and more just a well-built toddler .

Covers & Pockets Cloth Diapers at 30 pounds (PLUS)
AIO cloth diapers fit smaller on the 30 pound plus toddlers. It’s just the way it is. As a result of this smaller and tighter fit I have retired many of my AIO in favour of covers and pockets. This system is easy to use, and easy to adjust for both of my cloth diaper babies.
Please give me grace in some of these photos of cloth diapers at 30 pounds. Photographing an active toddler is not the most easy of tasks. He is easily pissed off at me, and doesn’t take to bribes as easily as he once did. I will update this post as I continue to grab more photos in my one size stash. Comment below if theres a diaper you want to see him in that isn’t currently listed. I was not able to get the SmartBottoms Too Smart Cover cloth diaper at 30 pounds to fit.
Alright. That’s my cloth diaper stash of pockets and cover on my growing toddler. Cloth diapers at 30 pounds (plus) is a great way to cloth diaper kids. Many brands are beginning to come out with larger fitting cloth diapers to fit and expand with the growing variety of chunk out there.
Fit of Covers and pockets really vary based on the absorbency inside the diaper. Larger, thicker, and bulkier absorbent materials give less room for accommodating chunky sized kids. The trimmer the absorbency the easier you can get it to fit. Thats why I prefer natural fibre inserts over microfibre. I rarely, if ever, use microfibre. For the most part I rely on prefold diapers (Bummi’s or GroVia) along with flat diapers. Honestly, I can’t get enough of receiving blankets, and I despise FST (definitely not enough absorbency for a toddler).
