Prefolds are easier than they look

I ordered some Indian cotton Prefolds they look like super absorbent burp cloths. The reason I decided to try prefolds is the fact that they are a super affordable way to cloth diaper. I Love Bum Genius and Happy Hineys, but even with 15 pocket style diapers in my stash right now I would have to wash diapers everyday! Who wants to do that? So now that I have some prefolds in my Cloth Diaper Stash I only have to wash about every 2 days. Surprisingly they are so easy to use I thought that I would never be able to figure out how to fold them right, but once I tried it it was easier than i thought. I use a fastener called a Snappi (NO PINS) This thing is awesome! I use Bummis Super Brites, and ProWraps as covers these work great. There are many ways to use a prefold diaper but the fold that use is called the bikini twist.

1st you lay your baby on the prefold

2 nd take the baby's right corner and twist it to the left

3 rd pull it up ward ( I have 2 boys so extra absorbency in the front is a necessary )

4th Add your Snappi

5th Add your cover of your choice and your done

The benefits Ive found with prefolds are:

They are super cost efficient

They wash super easy

They dry super fast

Awwww, look how adorable he is! I've heard so many good things about cloth diapers but with twins, I've always been hesitant to try them. I really need to get moving on potty training them...sigh.

You know Helene they make cloth training pants that are like pull ups on the cloth diaper web cites. They work awesome because they feel like underwear . Yet if your in the grocery store and one cant make it there will be no puddle to clean up and you just wash and reuse
