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
THEY MAKE IT SO I ONLY HAVE TO DO LAUNDRY 3 TIMES A WEEK!!!
