I find the bleached GMD to trifold a decent amount trimmer than the organic Unbleached if that helps any

I would look into diaper safari trifold inserts, even if you fold them with the stay dry in -- they are trimmer than any cotton prefold I have. I use them to stuff pockets right now.... plus they aren't expensive and often have deals.

Most CD stores these days sell 4x8x4 ply prefolds almost exclusively. There are thinner ones - 4x6x4 ply (4 ply on the edges and 6 ply in the center) - that feel quite a bit thinner than 4x8x4. I had some when my LO was much littler. I think I got them from alltogetherdiaper.com perhaps?

There are also the "preemie" ones that are, I think, 2x6x2, but those are pretty teeny. Would probably work okay in a newborn cover though.

I just got some GMD intermediate prefolds. They are blue edged. Bleached white. They are a good bit trimmer than regular ones.

I always do orange edge GMD on the smallest setting, yellow edge on the middle rise and red edge on the largest rise
