My son weighs 26lbs and the size 1's work great for him as inserts in our blueberry, happy heiny, and kawaii covers. They were also wonderful as prefolds when they fit him. These are my 'go to' for stuffing diapers during the day. They make for trim diapers and never leak. It's really amazing how much they can hold!
bI bought these from a friend who no longer needed them. I wasn't really into prefolds anymore at the time, but I'm so glad she introduced me to these! After trying them, I have bought several new as well.
These have become my everyday diaper for my 18 month old. I trifold them in Flip, Blueberry and Bumkins covers. At naptime, or if she will be in the diaper for 4 hours or more, I add a hemp insert (Joeybunz) in the center when I fold it. She has never leaked in these, even for long periods without the insert, but I want to play it safe and be more comfortable for my baby. We have used them for 4 hour shopping trips with no compression leaks; it wasn't even saturated!
I haven't had any laundering issues, other than that they stain a bit more easily than some organic, unbleached products, but...it's a diaper!
I spent so much time, energy and money looking for the perfect fitteds, AIOs, etc. What I found is that this is the easiest and best system, and cheapest compared to non-prefold options.
I hesitated to get the these prefolds because they are more expensive than regular cotton prefolds, but they are totally worth it. They are way more absorbant and not nearly as bulky. They are wonderfully soft, like a t-shirt. They do shrink down quite a bit, and in my experience do not work well past the 20 pound mark if you want to use them with a snappi. I think they are mainly designed to be trifolded and layed in a cover, which I prefer anyway. They could also be used as a doubler in pocket or AIO diapers. If you can afford it I think these are far superior to typical prefolds. I've ordered a bunch more because I like them so much
I really wanted to like this prefold. It had a lot of good qualities...trim, soft, made to dry quickly. However, after the first wash, they all had tiny pinholes down the seems (I bought 3, it happened to all of them). I use them every once in awhile when my stash is low, but the holes get bigger with each wear & wash. I can't even resell them...I suppose they will eventually go in my rag pile
Much softer and trimmer than ordinary prefolds. They don't snappi well because of their size (I think they are designed to fit perfectly in Thirsties duo cover- but work great trifolded in a cover anyways). Worth the extra $$$
Purchased in 12/2010. Used this item for 3 months.

I like how trim the prefold is and I do think that it is fairly absorbant; however, I have had troubles getting a good fit when snappi'ing it and I have no idea how the size 2, which is rated to fit up to 40 lbs will fit my 25lb-er another month. Perhaps if I trifolded it I would like them better, but that is just not my diapering style
I bought these in a 2 pack. These are super soft, amazingly absorbent and incredibly trim. I use them in a Flip cover, but I'm sure they'd be great in a Thirsties Duo cover as well. I just fold them up and lay them in. Super easy. These rock!
