Prefold sizing

I need advice on finding the right fit prefold for my 11 month old dd. She has a juicy booty and big ol thighs, she is really thick in the hips. I prefer to snappi prefolds instead of just trifolding them like I have been doing with our yellow edge GMDs. I don't know much about the difference in sizes so do you think the red GMDs is what I need or just premium Chinese prefolds or what? What about the wide baby ones?

Re: Prefold sizing

I'd go for the brown GMDs if I were you. My 5 month old DD, who is also a chunk (18 lbs), wears the browns. They are a little big on her (the brown edged fitteds fit perfectly), but not to the point they're ridiculously oversized.

Re: Prefold sizing

Doesn't GMD have a big baby size for babies that are wider?

Re: Prefold sizing

Then I would go with Diaper Rite mediums from Diaper Junction. They are wider than GMD red but just as high quality and would last longer than the wide baby. The unbleached are super soft. I don't like premiums since it's not enough width and too much length. FWIW My DD PLed out of mediums but she wore them from 5 months to 26 months.

I also happen to use medium Diaper Rite pfs. My DD has worn them since around age 5 mos. and still wears them now at 9 mos. and 20 lbs. I can easily see them lasting until she's done with diapers. I really appreciate not having extra length to fold down as you do with the premium size.
