What size prefolds did you use?

Faolan is already in red edges at 9 months, is he going to outgrow everything?

Re: What size prefolds did you use?

No because as he grows and becomes more active his weight will slow down. My DD moved to reds at 5 months...and then stayed there until PLing! My youngest is 6 months tomorrow and in browns but I'm pretty confident that he will stay in them until he is out of diapers. My oldest just kept getting longer and leaner so I bet I could get a brown on him still. So I think your LO will max out at some point in reds or browns, don't worry!

Re: What size prefolds did you use?

Are you talking about GMD sizing in prefolds? If so my son was in the reds at 4 months and the browns at 5 months (we did have to fold them down a bit at first but he needed the width of them). For awhile it looked like I might have to order the greens when he was around 8-9 months but I decided to hold off. And now at 10 months he's very mobile and has really slimmed down in the waist so the browns aren't nearly as tight around the waist as they once were.

I think I'll still need the greens for him eventually but not as soon as I thought. So maybe the same will happen for you? I had the same worry that you did but he's not growing "out" as quicky now!

I never needed browns they were to big.

Dd is in reds and probably will stay in those. I also have dr greens which are wider than gmd reds and a little bigger but smaller than gmd browns

We moved up to reds at about that age and are still using them at 3 years! Probably COULD do brown edge at this point but I'm really hoping we can get by until he PLs already.
