Question Need help with Prefold sizing

I have been using Osocozy newborn (purple stich) prefolds with PUL covers since my little one was 2 weeks old. Now, at 3 months he has grown out of this prefold size. I plan on continuing with prefolds but switching to wool covers.

I am looking for suggestions on which size of prefold to move into now. I would like to find a size that I can use for the longest amount of time, wanting to be as economical as possible. My little one is now around 13-14 lbs.

Thanks!

My 16 lb 3 month old is using GMD wide baby perfectly. I also am using GMD red edge with some fold down with no problem.

Do you use pins or Snappis with the red edge GMDs?

Thanks for your response.

Re: Need help with Prefold sizing

prefolds don't make any since to me. DD is 16lbs and doesn't really fit in the diaper rite med I have anything more -- but come to find out they shrank alot more than the website states. The large imagines I bought are pretty big on her -- but they do work.

I used the yellow edge gmd prefolds until my LO (who is a long and lean 8 mo), was about 5 months or so then switched to the red edge unbleached diaper, but I still use my yellow edges for pad folding. It seems to me that the unbleached diapers don't shrink as much? That might just be my perception. I snappi them as well.
