I would recommend these, especially for babies with chunky thighs! I have a 10 month old daughter I've been cloth diapering since she was old enough to fit BumGenius diapers, (about a month old), and I love them! You should probably get a stash of 24 diapers and wash every two days or so. Cloth diapering is so much fun, cute, and good for the environment. You can also resell the diapers when you're done or use them on future children.
