Another question...prefolds for toddlers?

Sorry for all the questions. I'm just really trying to make cloth diapering work better for us. I have a 2 yr old who is about 30 pounds. The premium chinese prefolds I use just don't fit her anymore. Plus, I don't think she finds prefolds that comfortable anymore. Is there a larger size prefold I should get? Or should I switch her to fitted dipes? Thanks again for all the help!

I use toddler size prefolds on my 32 and 44 lb boys, and they are great. I got mine at www.babycottonbottoms.com . HTH!

I like fitteds on my almost 2 y/o, she's only 26lb though. The toddler prefolds seem huge . If you can affort it, fitteds are nice. I'm finding them really easy for using the potty, they are nice for going coverless because you don't have to worry about them getting hold of the snappi. DD knows about underwear now & I'm finding if I use fitteds without a cover she thinks of them as a type of underwear & is interested in keeping them dry. Maybe get a couple to try out?

My guy is 27lbs and we use toddler pfs. It is hard to make the premium fit anymore and I like the room of the toddler ones...they work great!

Toddler indian prefolds run a little smaller than the chinese toddlers so you might consider trying the indians. They fit both my 23 lbs and 33 lbs boys. The premiums aren't quite wide enough for us. HTH!

I prefer the toddler indian prefolds. As PP said, they seem to fit a little smaller/less massive than the chinese ones. I have them on sale in my store right now (sorry to spam).
