Question What size PFs for lay ins?

Last time I CDed, I stuck with AIOs and pockets. But now I'm considering coming back with CPFs and covers. However, I'm a little stumped. What size CPFs would I need if I'm using them as lay ins inside covers? DD is 13 months old and nearly 27lbs. I was thinking premiums would be good (that although she's almost big enough for toddlers, they're probably too long anyway) but what are your thoughts?

I would try out a Premium first to see how it works. If you find they're too bulky you can always trim them.

I would go with a regular. Afterall,if you trifold it you'll get 14 layers with a regular and that should be enough for most babies.

I think you may be fine with infants since they don't need to go around the baby, just in the cover. Less bulk and just as many layers as regular. I use infants in my mediums covers and even though we are switching to regulars for snappi'ing I am keeping the infants for tri-folding. HTH!

I'd say infants...unless you're okay with trimming the premiums. A premium will be longer than the cover.

LOL, a different answer from every person. Will the infants or regulars be absorbant enough if I go with them?

I think premiums would be fine.
I really only use infant and premium sizes.

PS...Hi! I remember you from the old board but dont think I've "run into" you over here. HAHA

I'd probably go with premiums (I've never used regulars since my kids are extremely heavy wetters). I have toddler size and use them, but have to use snappis since they are so much longer and won't fit trifolded in a cover.

I researched it a bit more and saw pictures of babies her size in covers with prefolds layed in on greenmountaindiaper.com - I've decided to go with premiums. DD is a pretty heavy wetter so I do have to take that into consideration as well.

Thanks for your help! I'm looking forward to getting back into cloth!

Carrie - I remember you, too! A lot of new faces here but it's nice to see a familiar one!

maybe you could get by with infants but I think it would be pushing it on the length. They are only like 14" rise i think ......
