Re: Rant Or Rave: Prefolds

I use prefolds with wool. If you get the correctly sized prefolds, the bulk in minimal with a good fold. My little wears prefolds with wool wraps under all her clothing no issue. I use GMD smalls currently.

Love, affordable, easy, lay in a cover and go. GMDs and Diaper Rites are my faves.

LOVE them! I've only used GMDs, and I'm blissfully happy with them. I have them in every size! They're super soft, absorbent, fit any shape of baby, and wash easily.

Re: Rant Or Rave: Prefolds

Has anyone use thirsties prefolds alone? I like my geffen flats and am trying a thirsties, using it today. It's so trim! And easier than a flat to fold, I only pad fold or trifold my flats anyway

Re: Rant Or Rave: Prefolds

Love! We use flats and prefolds pretty exclusively. The prefolds are much faster to fold than the flats. They come clean easily and are really absorbent. I'm kinda baffled by people complaining about bulk. I find them much less bulky than the pocket diapers we have when they're stuffed with both inserts, which we need for our heavy wetter.

I love prefolds on bitty babies.
I've never tried GMD, because of shipping costs to Canada, but I've listed after their organics since they came out. For my past newborn I used grovia bamboo prefolds and LOVED them.

There's something so satisfying to me about the classics. Prefolds and flats will always hold a special place in my heart.

Re: Rant Or Rave: Prefolds

Love them. Solid half my stash in every size. I love the unbleach Indian PF's from Jillian's Drawers and Petite Bottoms. I know GMD's are all the rage and have been since I first started CD'ing in 2006, but I was never impressed- especially for the price.
Hate Boingos and trifolding, but I have a love-hate relationship with pins and Snappies. Usually depends on the shape and age of the child.
My favorite full-coverage wraps over prefolds for all ages are Bummis Super Brites(Gussetted so they pick up any slack from the prefolds at the legs, and they're way thicker and better than Thirsties) and Babee Greens wool wraps.
The various bamboo, etc, PFs like the new SBish never worked for us. The OLD SBish were awesome, back when Erin ran her own business, but no more.

Love them so much! Perfect for stuffing pockets or using in a cover trifolded!
