Whats the benefit to using prefolds? I've been using mainly pockets that I really like but have a few prefolds w/ covers I use occationaly but I really don't like them as much. I'm considering selling them.

Re: prefolds

We LOOOOVE prefolds!

They wash clean really really well, there's no elastic to go bad, you can fold them in many different ways to get the shape and absorbency you need. And they *can* be very trim, depending on how you fold them.

You can use your prefolds to stuff your pockets...

Re: prefolds

The benefits are that they are cheap and wash up and dry really easily. Plus, they are tough. I don't worry about what kind of diaper cream gets on them. And they are great to use for dust rags and such when you're done with them. I'm actually not a huge fan of PF's either but I do like to have some on hand for just in case.

Re: prefolds

We use and love them because they are cheap, easy to wash (no complicated wash routine or special detergents), the will last though many kids (no snaps, aplix, elastic, PUL to go bad), they are trim, and cute!

Re: prefolds

Keep them around for a little unless, you need to sell for money.
I tried pfs and hated them. i liked pockets too. then i tried them again. I was able to use the snappi (failed horribly the first time around) and love them. We now use pfs majority of the time. we use the pockets for sleep times and outings only now. I use infant pfs to stuff my pockets. When we have #2, I'll be able to reuse my "inserts" for the NB stage.
pfs last longer, and only get better with use, unlike other dipes that can wear out
