I would have to say Rearz better than Organic, and they are a touch shorter than average sized prefolds so you don't always have to fold them down. They also make larger sizes for youth and adults if you have special needs children.

Re: What do you think are the absolute best prefold cloth diapers on the market



thx for posting...I'm wondering too. I have only tried GMD (orange/newborn)-- they are super absorbant, but I don't find them to be very soft. And DD is outgrowing them QUICK!

Re: What do you think are the absolute best prefold cloth diapers on the market

I have several brands. I would say for sure go for something sized.
Some Sized brands:
Green Mountain Diaper (greenmountaindiapers.com)
Diaper Rite (diaperjunction.com)
Zabi Baby (zabibaby.com)
Imagine by Nicki's Diapers (nickisdiapers.com)

Be sure to check the measurements of each--they are not the same from brand to brand. For example, a medium Diaper Rite is close in size to a large Zabi Baby. However, the medium Imagine's (to me) are a wonky size that I never really liked. I think I just tried them at the wrong time on her though, a lot of people like medium Imagines.

I believe I am in the minority, but I really like bleached diapers better. I like the classic white look. I like seeing the pure white in my washer. I like how the pure white contrasts with the colored stitching. (Can you tell I have prefold love right now?) A lot of people say the unbleached is softer, but I honestly don't think it is much of a difference.
Between brands: Zabi's only come in unbleached, they are very soft. GMD's & Imagines come in bleached, unbleached, and organic. I thought the unbleached and organic Imagines were pretty pilly, but my white ones (the larges) are very soft and smooth. For GMD's, I had some organic that were nice, some that were pilly. The unbleached wasn't anything special, but I really like their white ones. For Diaper Rite's, I have only tried their white ones, and I like them. They also carry unbleached.

I have tried all of the above brands for dd's current size, and here is what I'm doing with them:
Medium Diaper Rite's, Large Zabi Baby's, and Large Imagines are in my rotation
Medium Imagines are in the rag pile (since they are so inexpensive to begin with, they are not worth trying to resell b/c the shipping would eat up the cost of the sale. Plus my medium Imagines are half unbleached/half organic, and I think they are kind of rough)
Medium GMD's are going to be sold (they are just a little too narrow for my taste). However, I wish they were a little wider, I like these the best as far as softness/thickness/durability.

Good luck in your decision! Most of the websites allow you to order single prefolds. You could order one of each and compare before you invest in dozens.

I think it's a tie between Zabi Baby and Osocozy. Right now I'm loving the fit of Zabi lavender edge pinned on my 15+ lb. 4 month old. It also depends on whether or not you like to pin/snappi. If you only trifold or don't pin often it would be fine to just go with prefolds in standard sizes (infant/standard/premium) rather than sized like Zabi and GMD...
