DD is getting a little too big to snappi the 4x8x4 infant CPF but the 2 doz 4x8x4 premium are huge.<br><br>
Help!!!!!!! I am thinking of triming off about two inches in length but I don't know if that will help. I also just found another dozen of the premiums left from DS. OOppps.<br><br>
The poor thing can't roll over with mondo diaper butt.<br><br>
I only have a dozen infant and I am washing too often with my little super soaker. Plus the size issue.<br><br>
If anyone has any ideas please share.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

How about trying and getting some regulars the 2 layers in the middle is the bulk you are getting but she will soon grow into them..meanwhile you may be able to use your infants trifolded in the covers i do it with my huge 7month old and it works out perfectly. You can put a doubler in the middle and your set...<br><br>

what fold do you use? i have success with the bikini twist but it takes awhile to get used to. if i use the newspaper fold i have tons of material in the front and i can't snappi real tight. i've read about using the covers the wrong way for girls (the sections are horizontal rather that vertical) not sure if that eliminates bulk or what. moms of girls would know i suppose.

DS just outgrew his infant ucpf's at 2 months old. Anyway, I ordered 24 regular ucpf's to use until the premiums aren't su huge on him. I just fold the extra fabric down in the front, but they're not too bulky b/c they have less layers. I'm not sure how that would work for a girl. You could always order one regular cpf to try. I ordered one of each from naturalbabies before deciding to order more regulars.

The Regular 4x6x4 prefolds are a lot less bulky than the Premiums, even though they're the same dimentions. I'm loving them on my 6 month old with a Snappi and no cover (daytime). I can do them without a Snappi with a Small Bummis SWW, but I prefer to do a fitted when I'm using a cover right now.

I agree w/ this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> My very petite 20 mo is too small for premiums (they fit but are terribly bulky on him), but the regulars fit him very nicely.
