Yellow or Red GMD workhorse???

So, I am about to break down and order a dozen or so GMD workhorse fitteds (tired of unsuccessfully stalking FSOT ) and can't decide on size. My guy is a skinny 4 mo, ~13.5 lbs, just sized up to small Tiny Tush covers and *just about* to size out of his xs FB's. On one hand I feel like I should order the reds so they will last a long time (and be more absorbent), but I am wanting something that is going to be trim, WWYD???

Do reds but without the closure. I use the red prefolds on my 12 lb daughter

Re: Yellow or Red GMD workhorse???

I have read the owner of GMD say that there is not a huge sizing difference between red and yellow. I agree with previous poster-go with the snap-less ones. I just bought those kind and the fit with a snappi is just awesome. Definitely more versatile than with the snaps.

I would do reds. I prefer closureless ones but do have some snap ones and they are handy for daddy ect. I usually still use a snappi on the snap ones.

Go for reds without snaps. You can always fold the rise down if you need to. We love GMD workhorse fitteds!

I'd go with the reds. The rise can be folded down so they'll fit

Re: Yellow or Red GMD workhorse???

Thanks mama's... I have been putting off buying some for days trying to make a decision. I think I will get mostly red no-snaps, and a very few yellow w/ snaps to go coverless while it is still so freak'n hot.

Re: Yellow or Red GMD workhorse???

I just got a yellow one with snaps off FSOT to try out to decide this same thing. My ds is 13 lbs and he can wear it completely closed. It has some S-T-R-E-T-C-H. When it came in, I looked at it and thought "That'll never fit" But it does. It fits well. Lots of growing room. Now, without having seen a red one, I imagine I could get a good fit with a closureless one if I tried. I'll try to get a picture up of him in it tomorrow, but he's asleep right now.
