GMD prefolds...white or unbleached?
So, tell me...which is better? White or unbleached? Why? (specifically wondering about preemie & newborn size if it makes a difference).

I've heard unbleached might be more absorbent, but have no experience. I use all GMD white, been working well for us from 5mo to now, 21mo. I do know that unbleached will take quite a bit more prep work, to strip the natural oils and all

Re: GMD prefolds...white or unbleached?
i've used both and love unbleached. i don't know if they are more absorbent then bleached because i never used both at the same time. unbleached is so much softer. I prefer pinning as apposed to using a snappi and I can not get a pin through a bleached prefold as easily. I just sold off a dozen bleached workhorse fitteds to buy a dozen in the unbleached version. I lost out on $$$$ but I don't regret it. I love them!!
