I was nervous about using prefolds but needed a cheap way to CD from birth. These are way easier to use and work so well, I'm glad I tried! They wash up soft, and are super absorbent, I've never had leaks! I have organic and cotton and the organic definitely quilted more, which does make them a little smaller than the cotton. I have large babies so started with 6 smalls and 18 mediums, plus some flats (also love!). I prefer to newspaper fold the pfs, not use as pads, and used the smalls and the flats for the first three weeks before he outgrew the smalls (with newspaper fold) at around 13lbs. I switched to mediums, just folded them down and that worked great. So if you have large babies, and want to newspaper fold them, definitely count on using a slightly larger size.
