Leaks with prefolds

I'm thinking of switching from pockets to prefolds or fitteds, but we've never used either. Can those of you that have used them tell me which you prefer and which has the least leaks?

I love my organic prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers! They are soft and super absorbent once they're prepped. They make up the majority of my stash, along with several different kinds of covers (Fluffy's from Etsy and Thirsties are my personal favorites). I love pfs because they're natural fibers, and they're practically bulletproof.

We <3 our GMD prefolds, too. They are super absorbent!

ETA: we have also not had one single leak or blowout. Ever. We snappi under Flip covers (love those, too!).

Re: Leaks with prefolds

I think tri folded pfs with flip covers are pretty bullet proof.

Re: Leaks with prefolds

I love my pockets but a friend gave me green edged prefolds & I like to stuff pockets with those than mf inserts. No leaks with regular changing unless unexpected amount of pee. I just didn't & still don't think I could do prefolds & covers.....

Love me some prefolds too, I really like thirsties hemp prefolds and flip organic snappied or boingo under a flip or wool. They are a bit $ for prefolds but trim and absorbent.

Re: Leaks with prefolds

I like both but I only stuff my pockets with prefolds or flats. So I'm a big prefold fan and we honestly never have leaks with a prefold under a cover. Once we switched to prefolds in pockets though we don't have leaks with that either.
