What size prefolds?

My DS is 13 months and 19 pounds. I got some Little lion premium prefolds that I thought would fit but they are way to long and very bulky. Am I doing something wrong? I really just want to streamline to the good old stuff for easy washing and simple diapering. Its driving me crazy that I cant get a trim fit. So I have only been using them at night. I just want to switch everything out to just prefolds and thirsties covers. What size am I supposed to be using?

Imagine Smart fit mediums (yellow edge) or GMD reds.

Re: What size prefolds?

As mentioned - fold them down in the back, it really does help. And do try a "medium" size - GMD red, Imagine (Nicki's Diapers) yellow, or Diaper Rite green. We had the same issue with the "premium" size pfs so we switched to the medium size Imagine pfs. My daughter is almost 2.5 and 28 lbs and the mediums still fit.
