Oh good!! I would compare brands for the next size up... You might want to stick with Imagines. I think GMD's brown edge are really big (I could be wrong though). I love our blue edge Imagines. DD can still wear the yellows (she's 22 months) but the blues look much more comfy!

my red gmd are slightly longer than the yellow imagines, if you're needing just a small length. otherwise my brown gmd are huge.. i don't have any imagine blue currently but they seem like a jump in sizing too.

My son was 25 lbs at 23 months, and last we checked percentiles he was 25th percentile for height and weight. He's also broad chested and his head size is the 9th percentile... His butt is very little, and he has narrow hips, and a short rise, and his diaper fits best sitting way below his navel. Looks like he'd fit a yellow edge pre fold. He wears 18 month clothes too even with a big diaper underneath.

I think gmd sizing is fine, and all babies are different. She collects photos to help parents choose sizes, you could help by sending her a photo of your kiddo and his stats, in a yellow edge.

Every kid is so different....my third child was a string bean and fit into yellow edge til she was 18 months. My new baby is so thick I am already on the medium size with him and he is 2 months old!

Re: wth? GMD pre folds WAY off for sizing!

I can't snappi the yellows on my almost 17 lb 4 month old and haven't been able to since she was maybe 14 lbs...Well, I probably could, but it was a struggle so I gave up. They fit her trifolded only now. I guess my little chunk needs the Wide Baby size.

Yeah, I don't think those are GMD. No way my GMD yellows would fit a 25 lber.

Yeah I think I got sold the wrong thing....but if they are imagines I like them more than my osocozy! So....as you can tell from the picture...he needs the next size up very soon!
Idk the measurement but they are about the same size as the size 2 osocozy ones I got.

Are you sure you don't have the imagine yellows, which are mediums?
My dd is 9 weeks and 12ish pounds and I can't snappi the yellows on her and even when she was 6 wks old I still couldn't. She is too wide. Just ordered one GMD wide baby prefold to try out and it snappis but is way too long. Pshhh I give up lol
Pockets win.
Thought I would love prefolds snappied but since my chunker monker is too wide we do sometimes lay the yellows in the covers and that works.
