Are bigger prefolds more absorbent? And what do you think of this fit?

My almost 2 year-old has been in red-edged GMD's for a long time. We mostly just trifold into PUL covers, but now that Fall is upon us I plan to snappi and use more of our wool longies and covers. This morning he completely soaked through two diapers (and his clothes) in less than an hour, so I'm wondering if maybe he needs a bigger prefold? Will it make a difference in absorbency?

Here's a picture from this morning. How does the fit look? Should I maybe be looking for some brown edged? Will that help? Obviously I change him as soon as I realize he's wet, but it's not always going to be practical to change him twice an hour! Thanks in advance!
