They are polyester filled. Not great as diapers but we use them for burp rag and hand towels.

Re: What's inside gerber's prefolds?

I've gotten loooong time ago, another set of gerber prefolds... and since I dind't have any diapers I used them and they worked fine. Now I still used them as added pads for nap times and they work fine... I've even used them inside cuteybabies wraps, as extra padding in flats...

But I've never cut them and see if they had a sponge inside... that is what it feels like....

Yea I bought 24 of them thinking I was going to use them but turns out the filling is not absorbant much at all. So resuable paper towels is what I plan to use them for now

They apparently have different kinds..you have to look for the 100% cotton ones to use as decent diapers. But the regular ones work okay at younger ages and are very trim

Re: What's inside gerber's prefolds?

I got a few of the poly-padded ones to use for burp cloths before dd was born, and I've used them as actual diapers on occasion. They aren't great, but I wouldn't call them totally useless. I've snappied them and added a doubler, and got 1 1/2 -2 hrs use out of them just fine. I've also used them to stuff pocket diapers (usually with a newborn mf insert as well) without issue.

I actually love the organic cotton gerber prefolds are burp cloths!
