I was considering getting some of the yellow edge and the upcoming red edge prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers for the new baby. We found out we're having a boy and I'm wondering if this is still a good plan. I've heard from a couple of people with boys that they need the extra folded down section in the front for absorbancy. So is it going to be pointless for me to get the GMD prefolds? I usually trifold in wraps after the first few months if that makes a difference. I really REALLY don't want to spend all that money if I'm just going to end up using the prefolds I already have.
I can't comment on the differing prefolds (we just have/use premiums and fold down in the front because it's easy, not for extra absorbency) but I have to comment on the trifolding. We've never been able to trifold without leak issues. Most people I know who successfully trifold have girls, most people I know who have failed at trifolding and needed to continue with snappis/pins have boys.
I think it's because boys can get "aimed" in so many different directions (and re-aimed if if you attempt to aim down while diapering), and if he gets aimed towards the side of a trifold, it's leak-city.
I have poop leaking with trifolding but not pee. If your cover is snug it shouldn't leak pee anymore than any other fold.
