Smile GMD red prefolds and covers question

Hi all!
I could use some help. My son is quickly outgrowing his small organic cotton prefolds but he generally is still wearing small covers. I have some Thirstie's and Litewrap smalls from green mountain and want to buy medium size diapers - the red edge ones. Think they will fit ok? So guess I have two questions. Should I bump up to the red edge (seems like a standard size) cloth prefold now? And will red edge fit in my covers? My son is 2.5 months old around 12 pounds and long waisted for now anyway. Thanks!

Red would last longer but yellow would be a better fit. The yellows will also fit under the small covers. I am not sure the red ones would fit in the smalls.

At 12 lb, you will definitely be folding the reds down, so I think they will fit under your covers- it will be bulky for awhile. I'm guessing you will have to size up when you stop folding the reds.

The reds would be bulky under small covers. The yellows sound like they would fit perfectly. The reds are totally do-able you'll just have to fold down the rise. They won't be as trim and you couldn't trifold without folding...but if you are about to outgrow smalls they would be the right way to go! If you think you'll be in smalls for a while you could consider the yellow edge. I can pin a yellow edge on my 1yo still and they fit great. I use reds on him mainly but the yellows last a while thats for sure. HTH's

Your replies are just what I needed. I will hope for some yellows to keep me busy on diaperswappers (!) but go for red if I need to purchase new. Thanks much!!! Jenn
