Re: What to do with Gerber prefolds!

So far the only PFs I have had to use is the gerber ones (thankfully their is a co-op going on now so I'm getting some IPFs). What I do is wrap the gerber prefold around a microfiber auto towel and lay in a prorap cover or use a flat so there is enough material to snappy around LOs waist then cover. The microfiber auto towels really help out on the absorbancy issue. And as a PP said they do get better after beign washed enough.

I also use mine for dish towels and cleaning rags. They're really cute to have in the kitchen as a rag once they've been tie dyed. I keep a few in the car too for when it rains and my windows are cracked.

Re: What to do with Gerber prefolds!

I bought a dozen before I knew better, but I actually use them without many problems. I will lay 2 in a fleece cover and this holds dd for 2-3 hours and she's a moderate-heavy wetter. I also use them with a hemp insert to stuff my pockets. This is for around the house, they aren't my going out dipes.hth

A friend gave me some that she had used as burp cloths and I trifold them in my AI2s during the day if I get that far down in my stash of prefolds and they work fine for that.
