I am switching from using sposies at night for my 30 pound and growing two year old DS. We have some toddler prefolds and covers. The Bummis covers I bought get really stinky after just one use, and he seems too wet even though I added a fleece liner. I am trying a Motherease cover tonight, but it seems so loose that I'm afraid the trifolded prefold will shift, and we'll have a leak. I really don't want to use snappis at night. Any tips? What covers/liners work for a big toddler? Should I try a different fold?
I highly recommend Thirsties covers. You can find them used for around $10 shipped. They are amazing covers. I've never had a leak get past them (I've been using cloth for 3 years). At night you might want to add another prefold in the cover to have enough absorbency, or purchase some doublers or inserts to add. I actually have some inserts that I was going to get rid of if you're interested in them. I'd be happy to let them go for a bargain if it would help.
