Another Comparison Question: GMD and Imagine prefolds
 
How do they compare? I just want all of one brand.

I love the price of the Imagines, but when I had GMD's previously they seemed to be really good quality. I had Diaper Rite's too but they are only sold individually and that is far too expensive for me! So...

Do they absorb about the same and how do they fit compared to each other by size (since Imagines are smaller than GMDs)?

Thanks mamas! :goodvibes:

I love the GMD organics. They are amazing. I actually like the imagine ub better than their organics. For some reason they seem nicer. If it were a choice between organics is pick GMD

Unbleached would probably be fine, I just saw that GMD claims organic are more absorbent than unbleached so I figured I'd go that route.

The Imagine standard size prefolds in toddler are the equivalent size to the GMD xl toddler (they're actually 1/2 inch larger pre-prep). And most kids won't need either. So don't let that part worry you.

I do think the GMD organics are more absorbent, but its not s ton. They are buttery soft and wonderful! For some reason the imagine organics just didn't seem as nice.

We've had some quality issues with our imagines, but didn't return/exchange them because we waited a couple months to prep them. We bought xs, sm, and med pfs and put the mediums away to prep later. When I finally did prep them, they shrank really strangely and were all scrunched up. The inner fabric shifted differently than the outer layer of cotton. They are very absorbent and hold up well. The ones that aren't weird are great. The ones that are weird aren't great for snappi'ing so we usually padfold those since the absorbency is the same. Our gmd pfs are a lot more consistent in the quality department.

Thank you! That's something I hadn't thought of. That's defenitely something else I'll need to consider.

I use all imagines and GMD's on my 10 month old (she is in yellows and 9lbs 14oz) and do not have a preference between the two. Both quilted nicely, are nice and soft, and absorb well.
