Regular PF's vs Premium PF's

can someone please explain the difference of these 2 prefolds to me? Maddy has outgrown the infant prefolds but the premium prefolds are just HUGE on her. Would the regular prefolds fit her?

Re: Regular PF's vs Premium PF's

Regular and Premium are the same size length and with wise. The difference is in the thickness. Regular are 4x6x4 and generally fit trimmer than the 4x8x4 Premiums..

You can have them trimmed down with the extra sewn in as a doubler.. some WAHMs do that

Re: Regular PF's vs Premium PF's

Ginger, premium and regular pf's are the same size--the premiums just have more layers of fabric in them. The regulars would be less bulky to fold down in front or back, so they wouldn't seem quite as huge. If Maddy's waist has just gotten too big, but the rise is okay, you can always add tabs at the back made of flannel or stretchy knit. Something stretchy would make for a larger fit range. There was a thread at the Diaper Pin a while back about this, but since the search function isn't functional, I'm afraid it's lost. Just figure out a way to extend the reach, and you should have it made.

If she has outgrown the rise, then you can always get regular pf's and cut them down, or make prefitteds from them. My favorite prefitted instructions are here: http://www.diapersewing.com/prefold_to_fitted.htm

HTH!

You could try a Indian PF cause they shrink more than the CPPF. I have one I could send you if you want?

Re: Regular PF's vs Premium PF's

I use trimmed premium CPF's and regular Indian prefolds. I think the regulars are just as absorbant for us as the premiums since I fold over the front without a ton of bulk on the regulars whereas I pretty much needed the premiums trimmed for a nice fit. I like both. Oh, the trimmed part of the premium I reattached as a quickdry doubler as in the above post. Folding over does give you more flexible for length so I use my IPF's in my covers with a lower rise and my premiums on my Bummis since I cut them to fit those covers.
