Preschool age help--difference between thirsties L, duo 2, & duo 3??

All my littles are daytime trained and I've been using pullups for bedwetters. Well one of them has decided it's funny to wet the pullup before actually going to sleep. Not cool. I'm thinking about see what he'd do if I put him in cloth. I just sold off my cloth.

I know he can still fit in a thirsties size 2, but doesn't have much growing room at all. Anyone know how much difference there is between those and a thirsties size 3? Or sized large? If you have a couple of those to compare or can point me to somewhere that does, that would be awesome!

Other covers that might fit?

What to put under it? My first thought would be GMD XL but they are pricey and I only need a few. I don't know anyone else that makes really big prefolds though.

I know that Thirsties size large is a good bit bigger than the Duo size 2. I have not experienced the size 3 but figure I will before our cloth journey ends.

I would go with Thirsties size large or either Bummis pull on. Those are awesome! And cheaper!

Also... I would make the new cloth night diaper as uncomfortable as possible to motivate him to use the potty before bed.

GMD has those "swaddle" muslin flats. Cheaper than prefolds, I think. I may just use a junk towel thought before buying more cloth.

I agree... The thirsties L is a good bit bigger than a duo 2. I put the L over the Green mountain large muslin swaddle. It's big, but I can still fit it on my very large five year old.

Does your little one just wet at night? How about two red or med size prefolds? Or even a red plus an orange under the L thirsties?

Sigh... I totally need to stop buying pull-ups and put her back in cloth.
