Re: What's inside your prefold???

I put my son in them. Sorry, I'm being a little smart mouthed today. I like to just put DS in them because then he gets changed more often & he recognizes the sensation of being wet which has really helped with PLing.


been a pretty stressful day and I needed a good laugh.

I often put a Happy Heiny oval in them. They are so small so they add no bulk, but they absorb alot. Love them

Re: What's inside your prefold???

I use cottonbabies' "stay dry doublers". I bought a 3 pack at http://www.cottontailbaby.com/item_404/Cotton-Babies-Stay-Dry-Doublers-3-Pack.htm for $7.50. They are $10.50 for a 3 pack at the cotton babies website... They work really well.

At night I put an extra premium PF in the first (I have to post a pic of DS's fluffy bum!!) & he's good to go.
You beat me to the punch!

I was gonna say her booty. I use my other prefolds. I need to make more doublers just for her.

Re: What's inside your prefold???

On the rare occasion I use a prefold, I use a stay-dry doubler in them. If I don't I will end up with pee on the floor the first time he goes! I actually had no doubler in the other day (only 15 min until his bath, I thought I would be safe ) but did have longies over it, and he peed straight through the prefold and down the leg of the longies! He looked at me a bit of disbelief and confusion, and said "What I do?" (as in "What did I do?")

Re: What's inside your prefold???

I bought some CB doublers and use those. I simply do not have enough dipes to change DS every hour (I'm already washing every day) and those seem to help.

Re: What's inside your prefold???

A prefold, and then another prefold.

We only wear our prefolds at night, usually, so I beef them up a little extra by putting two premiums on with one infant trifolded as a doubler. During the day I could probably get away without the infant one. I've always doubled up his prefolds...one could never last him more than 10 minutes!

Re: What's inside your prefold???

I usually don't put anything but if I think he'll be in it longer than usual....I have random wahm doublers and I top with a fleece peice I cut myself. With prefolds they just get wet quicker and usually I change ds 2 hours max. Overnight I use pockets.

Re: What's inside your prefold???

Thanks mamas for all the info. I guess I'm just not used to him feeling damp like that. I am going to try some of the things mentioned and hopefully our prefold love will continue. I kow my bank account likes it. :0)
