Can you use a prefold instead of an insert?

For my pocket diapers, instead of putting an insert in the pocket, can I just lay a trifolded prefold on top?

You can also stuff the prefold in the pocket. I did this for months when we were using pockets.

Re: Can you use a prefold instead of an insert?

Yep! In fact, there have been emergency situations where my daughter had peed in a pocket while we were out & about and I had no choice but to do that. I always had extra prefolds in my diaper bag, but for some reason I was out of diapers/ covers/ pockets on those occasions. So I pulled the used insert out and used the empty pocket as a cover. It wasn't ideal, but it's really no different than reusing a peed-in cover.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, kinda like using my pockets as covers. Good to know I have that option. I really just want to get as much use out of these prefolds as possible!

Yep we do this too- and we also stuff with flats. We hardly ever use the inserts that came with our pockets...
