What do you mean by sizing: dimensions, number of layers?<br><br>
Both Indian and Chinese are approximately the same size (Indian is a bit smaller than Chinese). All Indian prefolds have white stitching. Chinese stitching colours listed below.<br><br>
Preemie 9.5"x13" - 2x6x2 - white<br>
Infant 12"x16" - 4x8x4 - dark green<br>
Regular and Premium 14.5"x22" - reg is 4x6x4, premium is 4x8x4 - blue<br>
Toddler 17.5"x23" - 4x8x4 - green<br><br>
Is that what you were looking for?

You'd probably be fine with Premiums, but could do Toddlers.<br><br>
How tall is your 2yo? The Toddlers are a generous inch longer, but quite a bit wider.<br><br>
You can fold a receiving blanket to the dimensions of the prefolds to see what that size would be like on your child - that might help! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I don't know, I find the toddlers to be ridiculously large, my 2yo wears diapers at night, and the premiums are more than sufficient, she's a bit heavier than your daughter. I can Snappi the premiums, but she detests the Snappi, so I just lay the prefold in the cover.<br><br>
I always thought there was a big size difference between Indian and Chinese prefolds... when I compare the 2 side-by-side, it seem significant to me.<br><br>
