I plan on getting some Ecover this next payday. I really think I will go with reds. I love thee trim fit of the yellows but I'd like. A little more growing room.

Re: new gmd organic workhorse diapers are in

I like mine ok, but I've never tried the bleached cotton version. The material is soft and they look super cute on, but oh my these are NOT good for EBF babies. Poo leaks everywhere every. single. time. I refuse to use them with woolies anymore - they're a PUL cover only kinda fitted. I think the problem could be solved if the leg elastic went up a little higher on the leg.

I have 6 of the green edge organic for my gigantic 30 lb 13 month old. I like them but I do wish they were cut fuller through the bum--more like a ME one-size. These fit a bit bikini like on his giant hips/butt.

I know what you mean. I had that issue that last time I tried them (the white ones, and with a different baby.) But I am hoping that we won't have that problem once my baby grows into them a little more.

I am assuming they are made that way because it is easier/more efficient to do the elastic in one straight line instead of angling it with the contour of the diaper towards the back of the leg. But yeah, it would contain messes more reliably if they were sewn differently. I do not have any of the old ones to compare to, but I think the elastic seems to go back a little further than it did the last time I tried them, which was a year or two ago.

I think if I had my baby in reds, which would be his "correct" size, they would probably hug his legs more snugly. Which size are you using and how old/big is your baby? I just don't want to buy reds if he is only going to be able to wear them for a short time. For us, I think skipping reds is the way to go. I have been using a nylon pull on cover under our wool longies if I am worried about possible leaks. Or, even by using a doubler it snugs up the legs and keeps them more leak resistant.

Re: new gmd organic workhorse diapers are in

Okay, I went with brown edge for my baby (almost 20lbs) and I'm so glad I did! I can't imagine him fitting in the red edge now that I've seen him in the brown. He's got a big tush and I have to make sure his cheeks are evenly in the diaper in the back. He can even wear the green edge with the rise folded down. Here's a couple pics to add to the thread:

Brown edge (nice hair Buddy!)


Green edge


I need to look at the rest of my green edge stash, but they seem narrower through the crotch than the brown edge. I don't know if it is cut like that on purpose for a walking toddler or if that particular diaper just shrunk a little more. I do like that the soaker flap of the green edge goes up higher for more baby boy coverage and I don't mind folding the rise down either, that gives him even more cotton up front where he needs it. I'm actually thinking about getting more greens for him. These are super soft and I am very happy with them. I've missed the simplicity of cotton prefolds and these help me get the fit I was never able to obtain with a regular prefold or flat. Good job GMD!
