PF's not working for my son

he soak through them and his cover in one pee! will this get better when i have the bigger prefolds and the new diaper covers? maybe the g diaper covers are just not a right match for him, and because they are too small i cant use a doubler.

how do i make this work?

Can you fold a wipe in half to use as a doubler? I know I'm not much help.

Re: PF's not working for my son

What size prefold and kind of cover are you using?

Our prefolds (Indian, unbleached, premium size) are the most absorbant diaper we own hands down.

Re: PF's not working for my son

i am using indian unbleachd premium as well. i think part of the problem is i the covers (right now using g diaper covers until his bumkin covers get here) i also ordered him Toddler Prefolds (which only come in cotton prefolds where i ordered from). Im thinking once my set up is here I can tri fold, then fold in half and indian prefolds, and use it as a doubled with the cotton prefold snappid on and the cover. Too bulky?

is the problem that i cant snappi the prefold on cuz its too small and m jsut tri flding it and putting in the cover?
