    Default prefold sizing

    How do I know if my prefolds are too small? My son is 16 lbs, we use a service so I have no idea what color to tell you, they are just white. The back sides do not come up to the front on his belly without doing the snappi pretty tight. Is that ok? Should I do a different fold. I have been doing an angel fold. Also his thighs are getting chunkier. HELP!

    Sounds to me like it's time to move up a size! Newborn size prefolds don't last for very long, because babies that age grow SO quickly.

    I know I am a size up from prefolds...I think mediums. I may try doing the diaper in the cover without the snappy until my delivery next week. In the meantime I did a bikini twist this am....I hope he doesn't leak.

    Bikini twist never worked quite as well for us as angel fold, but it wasn't terrible. Just didn't seem as comfy for DD.

    I don't think the snappy being on tight will hurt him, as long as it's secure. When we started getting to the end of a size, I'd kind of fan out the front top part to meet the wings a little better. You can probably make it to the end of the week that way!

    I usually knew when to size up when we were having blowouts or when I really had to work to get the snappi to fit. You can try tri-folding the diaper in the cover too. I never had much success with that though.

    Well, that bikini twist ended up in a major blowout...oops! So the next size up which is blue is so long, but the whites seem to be blowing out and leaking more. I have also noticed that my covers seem to be wet every time now.
