Re: Gifted Gerber Prefolds- WWYD?

They are good to lay under baby when they need some air time, and I have used them as diapers too. Right now I am making some neworn fitteds and cut up ours into little soaker pads.

Re: Gifted Gerber Prefolds- WWYD?

We had a similar situation and returned ours but had I known then what I know now, I would have kept them for all the great reasons mentioned above!

Re: Gifted Gerber Prefolds- WWYD?

I have a few gerber prefolds and I use them in econobum covers with a fleece liner when I get bored with my other diapers. They work just fine for my son's needs. I generally use bgos or bg elementals along with econobum prefolds in the econobum covers or recieving blankets as flats. They are great for dusting, cleaning and several of what previous posters stated.

Re: Gifted Gerber Prefolds- WWYD?

I use the Gerber flats as unpaper towels and they work great! I am assuming the prefolds would work well too..

Re: Gifted Gerber Prefolds- WWYD?

I used our when ds was little and they did ok-- as he got bigger I used them with a hemp doubler (they are nice and thin so you can do this) it was a nice gesture and may go a long way if "grandma" knows they're getting used

Re: Gifted Gerber Prefolds- WWYD?

Yea someone got me some and some of the gerber wetpants. I guess that was their only envision of cloth diapering since thats all thats at the stores. Anyway I just used them for burpies and clean up. They make good changing pads too.

I agree.. also with the poster that said when you need to use them if the baby has a rash or use them during the meconium days. I did use them with a snappi and didn't have the same problem another poster commented.. have to admit that I like the gerber organics better than their regular prefolds.. but the organics I could never use as a diaper.. they are so thin I doubt they would hold much pee.. but i love them for everything else!
