My dd outgrew her infant prefolds at around 11-12 months and then I moved up to premiums. They are kind of long, but I fold down the back and that helps me customize the rise for her and still keep it fairly trim.

Not to be a downer or anything, but I just wanted to mention that no matter how I folded/snappied/whatever my premium prefolds, I *never* managed to get them to be even fairly "trim" when my DS was in diapers. I had a dozen that I used to round out my son's stash from about 6 months to potty training... Even at age 3, they were still pretty bulky. (He was 50% percentile height/weight all along, pretty average sized kid.)

Since then I've heard of people trimming them (those few inches on the top that you always have to fold down) and putting that extra strip in the middle a bit like a doubler... I never tried it, but maybe it would help.

Anyway, I'm sure that wasnt' much help, but I just wanted to give our experience with 'em...

I use premium prefolds but I am not worried about the trim factor. I tri-fold them in a cover for night time or pin them with soaker shorts for daytime.

We use premium prefolds on my 4 month old since he needs the extra absorbancy. We have trimmed them as Alyssa suggested and love them this way in a size medium BSWW. Trimming them made a big difference for us, especially since ds is so young. He can now wear all his clothes, lol!

We moved straight from infants to premiums just fine. I fold down the excess and pin or snappi. I think it makes for a fairly trim fit.

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!
