Cloth Diapering with Thirsties Covers and GMD Yellow-edge Prefolds

Jenny P. asked, "Did you/do you use any of the larger sizes as well, or are the smalls really that versitile? They say they're good to 15lb. How do they work in the "real world"?"

As mentioned in my previous post on cloth diapering, I use Thirsties covers and Green Mountain Diaper Cloth-eez Prefolds. This is how they work for us:

This picture is showing an X-Small (NB) Thirsties wrap (green-right hand side)--the back of the prefold is folded under to fit the wrap.

The red is a size small. The prefold doesn't need to be folded under anymore.

Here is the Medium (orange) and Large (yellow) covers with the same small, yellow-edge prefolds:

I hope that gives a good visual. It's much cheaper to do it this way. I've used my prefolds for 2 1/2 years straight (that's washing and drying over 100 times!) and they are only now just starting to show signs of use. I highly recommend them.
