Every so often I check the search terms that bring people to my site and several times I have had people land here looking for cloth diapers for older kids and teenagers. I have to guess that my site comes up since I have a teenage son and a cloth diapered toddler so the two terms together bring you here. I have had this search come up often enough that I decided to put together a list for those of you who are in need of diapers for an older child or teenager.

RagaBabe has recently come out with a Size 3 diaper that fits up to 50 pounds. These diapers are amazing and are my favorite but they are hard to get. If you enjoy the thrill of the chase then I would give them a try. Related: How to score a RagaBabe
Fuzzibunz has an XL (40-55 lbs) and an XXL (55+ lbs) in their Perfect Size diapers. Fuzzibunz no longer makes their Perfect Size diaper so no longer carry the XL. They now make a one size diaper that fits up to 40 pounds. While this won’t work for an older child, it will still be helpful for late potty trainers or preschoolers who need nighttime support. There are only a few retailers who carry the newer Fuzzibunz, one of them being Nicki’s Diapers.
AppleCheeks has recently released a Size 3 diaper to select retailers. The size 3 is said to fit kids from 30-65+ pounds. Nicki’s Diapers is carrying them (with free shipping) and I will update as I find out other retailers that have decided to carry this size.
Disana makes an XL wool cover for kids 37-48 pounds. Wool covers are great for bedwetters but do require an absorbent layer underneath like a fitted cloth diaper. While Disana covers are available at many stores, not all of them carry the XL size.
Bummis Super Whisper Wrap covers come in an XL for kids over 40 pounds and are available in white only. Check the Bummis website for availability and questions on their XL diapers. Available in the Super Whisper Wrap and Pull-On.
Happy Heiny has some larger sized pull on training pants and diapers. They will also do custom orders if you need a size larger than what they have in stock.

Please note that I don’t have personal experience with any of these but have compiled a list of some that I’ve found. It would be great to one day see the market open up a bit to cater to those with special needs children, school aged bedwetters and incontinent adults. It’s definitely a hole in the industry but there are some resources available.
I will add more to this list as I find them but hopefully, this will give you a place to start on your search.
