Regular Prefolds?

Okay - I'm still loving the world of old school dipes but my premuims are pretty bulky - so I want to get some new or used regular size - where should I get the regulars?

I really think I want to try a new wool cover too ( I have a stainacator) - what do ya'll think?

Re: Regular Prefolds?

I love regualr prefolds. I didnt like the bulk of premiums and my daughter is small. My 2 1/2 year old is only 22 lbs and is 37 inches. She can stil fit in infant but they are getting snug. I have some dyed one for sale on ebay. But I can look and see if i have some not dyed ones in my inventory I can sell you for cheap. I am just now getting thru my inventory to get rid of it all.

Re: Regular Prefolds?

I have trimmed my premiums like on the diaperpages website but it will only work for trifolding since my kids have a long rise, but it works great in a wrap. I am getting some regulars too since I've found a couple of my covers don't fit the premium that well since my trimmed length I used is sized for the Bummis SWW covers which is longer in rise than a couple of my other covers. I ordered mine from Granitesmith on ebay.

Re: Regular Prefolds?

We used our regulars forever! They do help reduce bulk, the middle layers won't get so thick when you trifold them, but for nighttime you can't beat a trifolded premium prefold~

Re: Regular Prefolds?

where do you get regular prefolds from? I've only ever seen them in infant and premium. Do these come as indian too? Sorry to have this

Re: Regular Prefolds?

To find regular sized prefolds, just google "regular prefolds." My favorite ones are some that I bought used. They measure 13 1/2 x 17 1/2 all washed up. They are the same width as premium but not quite as long, so I don't have to fold them up or down. But, they seem a bit shorter than the regular ones I see for sale around the internet. I think I may trim my premiums to match up with these because the fit is so good. Check this reference out:

It might help you. Good luck,
Mary

Re: Regular Prefolds?

I just bought some Regular CPF from www.treecitydiapers.com they were the unbleached kind and work really well, but are way too long. The infant prefolds I bought from whole family market are a little too short, and don't pin, maybe I should try another CPF from somewhere else. I should try them with a snappi now that I have one to use, but I use mostly pockets. This summer I want to try to figure out how people go coverless because my sweetie HATES to be hot!

Re: Regular Prefolds?

I love Regular ones, they do work with less bulk and you can't beat it with wool.

I love using the bikini twist for the least bulk, too.

I sell regular chinese ones in my online store if you are looking for some, too ;-)
