i have both...i love them both lol. i will say the natural colored thirsties are much softer than the white thirsties. equivalent to the ipf's. the thirsties are also bigger than the ipf's, they're the same size if not SLIGHTLY larger in length than cpf's (literally like not even 1/2 an inch). so size wise i actually like the thirsties better b/c i feel like he'll fit them longer.

the $$ is better too!!!

Can I get a link to the Thirsties? Do they make newborn/infant size?

Sorry for the hijack.

Just wanted to add that I found the colored/dyed ones to be MUCH softer than the bleached ones, and less pilly, too! they're more expensive, but the colors really stay looking nice.

I have some bleached CPF that were given to me...and then I bought some premium Thirsties unbleached prefolds...so that is my extent of prefold use.

I was really disappointed at how much the Thirsties pilled. Tons of little balls everywhere. They are soft and fluffy, and with use they look less pilly. I think they are okay enough for a few hours, but not much more. One pee most times and the crotch is totally soaked (and I do not have a super soaker).

I'd like to try IPF eventually.

hmmm i guess we all just have different experiences...i haven't had any pilling w/my thirsties yet but i have with my IPF's....i find them to last the same amount of time for pees..of course we change every couple hours no matter what.

oh and i get mine from mommacommune, free shipping

yes they do have infant size..the n/b size is preemie though so you know.
