Reviews od econobum prefolds

DS needs some new prefolds. (After buying used, being used for DD, and now being used for DS, they are starting to fall apart.) I'm considering econobum prefolds. How do they compare? DS is a heavy wetter - are they absorbent? Are they the same size as regular premium prefolds?
If it matters, DS is 12 months and weighs almost 23 pounds.
Thanks for any input.

Re: Reviews od econobum prefolds

We like econobums shells a lot,but don't really use their pre-folds. We like zabibaby pre-folds in them. But the shells are great. Surprisingly my favorite cover at the moment.

I don't have a premium diaper to compare them too but my tall 2.5 year old can use them trifolded. They are nice and absorbent prefolds. I LOVE the econobum system

Re: Reviews od econobum prefolds

I really like the econbum prefold that I have. It is soft fluffy and absorbent.

Re: Reviews od econobum prefolds

Washed my econobums are 11x15 and my cottonbabies premiums are 13x18. We use them during the day and they have plenty of absorbancy. DD1 is a heavy wetter at night so we use premiums with doubler. DD1 is 15 months and 20 lbs, up until a month ago this is what we used. DD2 came along and I chose to put DD1 in premiums only and move the econobums to #2. But the econobums would still work for both girls.

Re: Reviews od econobum prefolds

I really like the econobum for their softness. And I like that they are so much more narrow in the longer dimension, which is great for reducing bulk between the legs if you are trifolding on a larger kiddo. But they might be too narrow to snappi onto bigger/thicker kids because of it. Since the layering is even all the way through they have a couple more layers in each side to up the absorbency compared to standard prefolds. HTH!
