I have not used them personally, but have read a lot about them on diaperswappers and asked some questions over there about the (the GMD prefolds, that is). Seems like people love them due to the sizing, that they fit longer and with less bulk that regular prefolds. I have been tempted to buy some but have a ton of prefolds already that I should just trim up, lol.

I have a dozen of the brown-edged pfs. I love using them! They fit my dd much better than the other pfs we have because of the extra width and the absorbancy is great, too.

They are much softer, too. We have very hard well water and my other pfs never got very soft like people said they would. I have been pleasantly surprised with the softness of them.

I give them a thumbs up!!

I've been using them for about ten days now and they are the diapers we reach for first. With the regular toddler size we had to fold down in back so these are much sleeker and easier to pin.

I love the GMD prefolds. I've had several sizes, including the brown edge, and they're soft and durable. I've bleached mine several times (I'm lazy,and that's the fastest way to de-stain them) and they're still fine.

I have one Growing Green's OS dipe. It fits DD fantastically--it's really thin on the sides, the elastic is nice, and the snaps are in good places. Unfortunately, it's also very hard and not absorbant at all. The amount of dipe between her legs is very skimpy and not fluffy the way the MO Sandy's are at all. I've never bleached it, so I can't blame that. It's a shame, since it fits so well, but I wouldn't buy any more of them. (FWIW, I like the MEOS just as much as I liked the MESandy's, maybe more.)

What are the measurements of the brown edged prefolds? We use premiums here and I have to fold them down to fit.

Thank you! Guess I could have looked on the website.
