Best cover for Rainbow Shorts?
Hi, I just got my Rainbow Short Prefolds from GMD and am struggling to find the perfect cover. I have Imse Vimse Bumpy medium cover that is too small with these premium prefolds. My DD is 16 months and starting to learn to pull off velcro, but that's not a real issue (yet?). These rainbow shorts are just so much bulkier than the infant prefolds I'd been using, but she definitely needs the greater absorbency.

So, help me decide--what covers should I try? She is 16 months, 21.5 lbs, 31" tall, with an average build (maybe slightly smallish build, but with a big tush, LOL).

Have you tried folding the front and back down a little?

We've used Bummis and WWB covers with them mostly. But I sold all the Bummis and got Thirsties and those are great,too! :thumbsup:

It's not that they are too long, but they are so bulky through the legs and it can be hard to stuff the prefold inside all the way. I'm having better luck with the angel roll, however, so maybe that is the key. I still think I need some larger covers. I may get a Thirsties and a Imse Vimse large.

Thanks, all!
