anyone ridiculously attached to prefolds?

Yeah when I started this cding adventure I was a pocket girl 100% I was like "those pfd mama's are crazy!" Then they crept in on me and I bought a dozen unbleached organic brown edge and oh man I was a convert to prefolds and wool lol and now that dd is pling I'm lottoing my whoke stash EXCEPT those brown edges I cant seem to bring myself to give them away but I don't quite want to use them as rags either.... it's RIDICULOUS it's like they represent Abigails babyhood what can I do with them? I thought about making trainers out of them but I have misc.prefolds I could do that with. .....am I ridiculous or what?!?

I'd keep them - I keep a ton of weird stuff that holds sentimental value Who knows, maybe one day she can use them on HER kids!

I think your fine keeping them until you no longer want them. Unlike diapers with PUL or elStic they do not go bad when stored. You can decide later with no harm done.

That is an AWESOME idea! They are so soft & easy to clean so shouldn't be a problem.

I am starting to get the prefold love. They are so ridiculously easy to clean & don't have to worry about elastics, Velcro, etc.

Re: anyone ridiculously attached to prefolds?

I bet it wouldn't need batting at all. When my son was younger he was nearly as round as he was tall. We were using GMD green edge for the width. At times I would use the prefolds as a blanket.
