Which size GMD workhorse fitteds should I order?

My son is 3 yrs old and weighs at least 30lbs right now. I want to get some of the new organic GMD workhorse diapers but don't know if I should get the browns or greens. In most OS diapers, he wears them on the tallest setting but they sag a bit so he's basically in between the medium and large setting. I'm thinking I'll get closureless but I may want to try the snaps if the snaps are hidden.

Are the snaps hidden on the snap version of the workhorse diapers?

Thanks.

get the closureless xl, you can adjust the rise on them.

Re: Which size GMD workhorse fitteds should I order?

My son is 2.5 and 33lbs (wears 3T clothing and is on the largest setting of OS diapers IF he can even still fit them). He is in brown and green workhorses but the brown fit him better than the green. The snaps are hidden on the inside if that is what your asking about

I can not let my little one go coverless with a snappi or pins as he will take them off and he hates covers so we only go coverless ... snaps are a must for us !! I have a dozen brown and a dozen green ...............
(Ignore the blue paint he found a stamp pad and went crazy!!)

Thanks for the action pic!

Decisions, decisions! The greens look like they will be a bit big on my son but closureless does make the rise adjustable. Your little guy looks bigger than my DS. My son is petite for his age. On FB, I think they mentioned the organics running a bit big too.

I think browns might not fit long... No closure green edge would be the most adjustable option. The snaps are hidden but after trying both I can tell you I prefer no closure.

I would do green edge no closure. My 22 lb 10 month old is in brown edge and there is no way they would fit him at 30 lb. He needs a high rise though and that is the problem I have with the brown edge, he has already almost outgrown the rise on them.

My ds potty trained from the brown edges at a lean 25 lbs/2 years old; if he was going to wear diapers much longer I would have bought green edges. The browns were trim and snug at that size.

We had the snap ones. I am not a fan of snappi's on boys; I hadn't ventured into pins yet at that time.
