Osocozy vs. GMD prefolds?

Hi, I'm looking for anyone with advice about which brand of prefolds they prefer. I've had friends recommend both to me, but am not sure of the differences.

I know Osocozy costs less, so I am leaning toward that brand, but want to make sure.

Re: Osocozy vs. GMD prefolds?

Both are good. Gmd are slightly better IMO, they are a hair softer and last a wee bit longer. You will have to decide if that's worth it to you, it's a pretty hefty price difference. If you can wait until December clothdiaper.com usually has some AMAZING deals on osocozys during their twelve days of Christmas sale.

I have used both brands. And to be honest, I really can't tell the difference. I don't know about longevety tho as I resold most of them. GMD seem to be more popular tho.

Re: Osocozy vs. GMD prefolds?

Hi, not an expert, but having both GMD and Oso, I think they are from the same manufacturer and just sold under different brands. I've found GMD to be less expensive, but maybe it's bc I bought a lesser qty of Oso so the per unit price was more.

I have used both and they seem about the same to me (I'd go with the cheaper one Of course, I am not really a fan of prefolds these days so maybe I am not a good judge!!!

Re: Osocozy vs. GMD prefolds?

I have not used Oso but I have used other "top brands" to compare to gmd. In addition to the seam closure and over all quilting quality of gmd, I'd say consider the customer service. I don't believe anyone matches gmd in this area. They will hold your hand and help you select a product and support you through its use. Inevitably, we all experience something needing support along the CD journey. They have a lot of helpful education at their site as well. In other words as you chose to CD, consider what is your motivation. Supporting a "shop" that supports you will help sustain them for the next CD family that comes a long.

I have a stash of GMD and think they are softer...but I also bought them gently used so I don't know what they feel like brand new.
