Re: those knots u get inside prefolds?!??!!

The only prefolds I have had those little balls in are the Thirsties hemp prefolds. Super annoying, I agree. They are also falling apart!!

Re: those knots u get inside prefolds?!??!!

I've never had this happen :/ I use grovia bamboo pre folds and nickis bamboo pre folds. In the past I have used newborn cotton prefolds also no problems.

My flip overnight ones have done this. My GMD didn't. I hate it when they do this!

Re: those knots u get inside prefolds?!??!!

When I took my prefolds apart not all appeared to have the balls of lint beforehand. Some it was really obvious but others not at all. When I opened them up they all had them. Even the ones I didn't know had them. I suspect all prefolds have them. Just that in some they are not noticeable. Maybe the balls of lint are just small.

I had the same problem with several different brands of hemp inserts. The only hemp inserts that I have that did not do this are my old style Snap-Ez inserts. They were sewn with the fuzzy side out and seem less prone to getting lint balls trapped inside. I threw several inserts away because the lumps seemed like they would be uncomfortable for baby.
