Trimmed Prefolds

Those of you who use these, I have few questions. I use regular premiums on ds at night, but they are HUGE! I can pretty much only use a pull-on wool cover at night to accommodate the bulk. So, I do love prefolds, and my infants are just not really adequate. So, I'm thinking about getting some trimmed premiums. I love the indian pf's I got from the Little Lions co-op, and have actually already contacted Gina about doing them for me. I'm definitely leaning toward Little Lions, but do any of you have any other suggestions as to where I should get them?

Also, I can apparently have the extra sewn back in like a doubler or just left loose. What do you all reccomend? And how much should I have trimmed? I'm thinking 2.5 to 3 inches.

Thanks for your input, mamas!

Re: Trimmed Prefolds

I have trimmed ones- GMD ones and Thirsties my friend trimmed for me. I didn't use the extra - just tossed it. What I did is measure the length that I fold down, and then trimmed that part off. I don't like folding down anything.
