Bagshot Row Bamboo. They're sooo nice. I'm in love with their OS fitteds.


I'm feeling a lot better about this. Almost excited?!

Um yes! My 2.5 year old peed on the floor twice today. I found this thread while searching for a solution. I might try trifolding into a cover.

I've heard that the Bummis Whisper Pants run bigger than the Dappi's. We have Dappi nylon pants and love them. If you can find Thirsties in the toddler size those are wider than the toddler indians that's for sure. I love our thirsties. Never used GMD's so don't know much about their prefolds at all. Good Luck in finding a diaper to last your big boy until he potty trains mama. I love pinned prefolds and nylon pull on pants the best.

i'd grab some small doublers if possible when getting your pfs

- and i'd probably go with the brown edge pfs from green mountain diaper OR get toddler pfs trimmed from Little Lions - if the sale is still on it would be $31 for a dz before shipping -EDITED TO ADD - is he really too wide for toddler pfs (with the green stitching ?????) -

on covers - when you say wide do you mean he is broad or chubby? If he is broad some great covers are bummis originals, imse vimse - probably softs would be nice - and nikky covers - all of these are favs of mine but none work on my littlest who has a budda belly but super narrow waist for the size of him
another option would be to grab large bummis whisper pull ons or xl dappi nylon pull ons = super trim and cheap!

heck...my 8 month old pees through a PF! I came in this thread figuring if someone could do it with a toddler, maybe they can tell me what works for a super soaker!

I usually have to use 3 tri folded hemp doublers and an infant PF's trifolded in a cover if I dont want her to pee right through.

I use trifolded gmd brown edge pfs in a m thirsties cover or a m bummis cover for my almost 3yo boy. he can't pee through a trifold, and I find the trifold to be way more absorbent than pinning it.

Re: Tell me about using only prefolds on a 25 month old!

I haven't tried the green edge toddler's yet. I have toddlers from cottonbabies that he is too wide for. He's very broad. I'm not sure which prefolds to get...Hmmm..


How do you get them trimmed? that would probably be the best option for us?

I know I posted earlier but thought I'd give you a link to some pictures I posted.

Covers that are wider in the bum but okay in crotch are Imse Vimse and I LOVE them even though they aren't a perfect fit on my guy.His bum isn't wide though so they might fit your guy better They fit my wide infant much better than my toddler.

I love to just trifold in a cover and go
