Re: Absorbant fitted for big baby?
just another story- not much about fitteds (I wasn't brave enough to try)

I will look into the sbish (I do love snap less) and sandys. Thanks!
don't worry- he'll slow down.
my dude was the same (a touch bigger at 4 months if anything). I had to go directly to Karen at GMD because I didn't know how to keep up- he soaked prefolds in no time flat and I felt terrible he was soaked! My son's now only about 26 lbs so he's been wearing the same brown edge for a year (and still going- now they look trim to me) after we flew through the first sizes- but now thinking about it, we did use the red for a good 3 months. I needed wide baby and I had a ton of doublers from GMD. 2 hemp doublers on the outside of a "next size up" prefold (now green) with a smaller prefold or doubler depending on our exact stage. I got flats to play with, too. We didn't start trying fitteds until he was older.
I now always size up crazy big (I think) because I still remember the early days We're trying sbish snapless and OBF just now ourselves.
the poppy fields look downright amazing.
