pf measurements

Can some tell me measurements for toddler & premium pfs? I ordered some toddler pf b/c I really need width, they are big but the width will work, just a little long. So in the next coop I was thinking of ordering some premiums but I want to check measurements. And how much do they shrink? TIA!!

Re: pf measurements

After washing size can vary by lot. I bought premium pfs two seperate times from the same place and one lot ended up a couple inches shorter than the other. I'd give you measurements but they're in the wash right now. Funny thing is the width isabout the same.

Re: pf measurements

Ok I measured my premiums...

The ones from Little Lions are 12 3/4 wide and 18 1/2 long washed

The ones I got from a local diaper lady are 13 1/4 wide and 19 1/4 long washed

Re: pf measurements

in my experience prefolds vary most by type
indians being shortest then cpfs then european pf

(all washed measurements)
infant cpf: 11.5 x 14 (unknown origin)
infant epf: 12.5 x 14.5 (intergrity diaper co)

ipf premium: 15 x 19 (unknown origin)
cpf premium (from little lions): 13 x 20
the cpfs I just sold were bigger ... wider and longer than the ipfs.

but it depends by brand too
sorry don't have any toddlers to measure

I really like the epfs right now because the infants were getting too narrow but the cpfs premiums were huge. The other nice thing about the ipf premiums to make them less bulky is that the middle isn't as wide so probably they aren't as absorbent but when you have all that extra diaper LOL

Re: pf measurements

I just measured mine, which have been washed many times for almost 2 years now and these are the measurements I got:

Premiums: 13" X 20"
Toddlers: 15" X 20"

Here's the measurements new after the first few washes:

Premium: 14.5" x 22"
Toddler: 17.5" x 23"
