Prefolds quality?

I love my prefolds! I bought them on here and never had a problem with them. Well its time to buy the regular size and I want to buy new. I think my baby deserves some new fluff =) I know everyone swears by green mountain diapers and I think I should go with them. BUT I seen so many cheaper prefolds and I have the opportunity to get the Diaperwraps brand prefolds even cheaper. My question is Have you tried the cheaper prefolds versus the GMD and really discovered a difference?
Thanks in advance.

Imagines from Nicky's Diapers are a little cheaper and I think they're terrific. I don't have the same size in both, that would be interesting. I love the GMDs, too. The Imagines work just fine though and are softer if anything.

Re: Prefolds quality?

I love GMD - but Little Lions are a close second as far as absorbency, I really like them.

Re: Prefolds quality?

I bought my prefolds probably around 4 years ago, and they are Thirsties nb cotton prefolds. Absorbent, work great. I'm using them heavily for our new little one due in 4 weeks.

Re: Prefolds quality?

I bought new for my youngest and went with Diaper Junction. They seemed similar to Green Mountain size and quality wise, but a little less expensive. I'm really happy with them! The green ones still fit her at 14 mo.

Re: Prefolds quality?

I started w Bummis prefolds and then tried some GMD prefolds. Honestly, the only difference I noticed was in the plethora of sizes. I wanted something for between infant and premium.

Re: Prefolds quality?

The prefolds that come with the Econobum are incredibly soft, My GMD's are soft but not nearly as soft and quilty as those. Im not sure if you can buy the seperatly but they are heaven

Edit~I had to go look for myself and Cottonbabies does sell them in 3 packs for $6.00, so i guess $2.00 a prefold., however they fit From Small to Large instead of having to buy multiple sizes with GMD.
