Do you use or plan to use toddler prefolds?

Just curious if anyone out there actually uses them or just stops at premiums.

We use them!
My hubby likes prefolds more than any other diaper, so he uses them when he changes diapers (I use the fitteds, lol). My son grew out of premiums a few months ago, and I just got our new toddler IPFs in the mail.

No, my guy is skinny, plus he's a light wetter (regulars do him fine.) When my chunky daughter was CD'd, premiums fit her fine, too.

I think ours our toddler size- they are huge- I have to fold them alot to get them on our 4 1/2mths(andrew) old but they fit our 2 1/2yr (thomas)old well. I use them Thomas sometimes, but its not our only type, just depends on what cover I am putting on him. We also have AIO's, AI2's, fitteds, pockets, and trainers/pull-ups.

At this point I plan on only using infant size PFs, but we tri-fold, so they should last a really long time, hopefully two years.

I got some, but they are super bulky and way too long for my chunky 2.5 year old. I like them for night, but a trifold reg. size pf is easier for day and less bulky.

That is TOO funny! I contemplated buying some when ds was in dipes, as I seemed to reach for prefolds ALOT with him, but the dimensions seemed huge. Thanks for the graphic! I'm so glad I never bought them, as they just would not have worked for us. We did alot of EC with all the kids, and they were all PL'd by 2 (ds maybe a couple months later) so we would have had NO use for soemthing that sized! lol
