Whats the trimmest prefold?
Im giving up on pockets. I wash and wash, I strip I strip, and yet they repel repel. and now that Ive got all HHs instead of the pee repelling and getting caught by the leg casing, its rolling right on out. So what would be the trimmest prefold? I started at the beginign using premium CPF from cottonbabies w/ BSWW. but that was soooooooo bulky. So what would be better for trimness and absorb a heavy wetter? Indian? Hemp? Flats? Thanks in advance!

Re: Whats the trimmest prefold?
your best bet would be to trim the pf's.

Premiums absorb the best, you can trim them down so they fit better in the cover. You can do it or someone can do it for you... I think you'll have the same bulkiness with indians as chinese ones..

I have actually found that pinning the prefolds helps alot with the bulk factor, though.

hmm, ok nother question, what about contours and fitteds? or am I gonna have the same repelling problem? (lol plus it takes me 30mins to fold the freakin prefold :giggle:)

Re: Whats the trimmest prefold?
If you trim your premium prefolds to the size of your covers and then trifold them in BSWW, they really are not that bulky and will work really well. You can trifold them as they come out of the wash so they are ready to go. No more extra time than stuffing pockets, I think it is less.

You can get some of your prefolds converted to prefitteds so they are like a fitted, no folding. I just got some and really like them.

That is what I did. I did about 14.5" for my size medium BSWW if that helps at all.
