The pre-fold Cloth diaper results


As those who have kept up with my blog know I decided to go with pre-folds and covers this time around instead of the All-in-one diapers that we used in the past. Since we only needed to buy diapers for the first 6mths then we are going to be able to use the AIO's that we already purchased for our older children we wanted the cheapest solution for the interim. I had never used pre-folds before and it was quite the learning curve :) First off we had to wait until the girls were 2 mths old to even try them since the girls were to small to wear them in the beginning. Once they were big enough to wear them it took me several attempts to get the correct folding technique down so that they fit the covers, didn't leak, and didn't have any wicking. Once we got the folding down everything got much easier :)

Pro's
*Cheap to purchase
*Easy to dry
*Very soft and absorbent

Con's
* You have to handle the wet insert to remove it unlike a AIO where you don't touch the inside
* You have to manhandle the baby to make sure everything is tucked into the cover at the legs and back.

Would I buy them again? Yep they are easy to use and don't take much more time to put on than an AIO would. I have some pics of Lacy wearing her first cloth diaper that I will have to put up soon.

I am going to use prefold for the first time and as my first cloth diaper. My daughter just turned 2 months. I was going to use the trifold with the cover does that work?

I would be wary of the trifold just because of poo leakage around the leg holes. Even if it doesn't leak out of the cover you stand a greater chance of it leaking on to the diaper cover and then having to change the cover more often. I like the newspaper fold it makes a little pocket in the center where everthing collects :) Hope that helps!
