I bought 2 bamboo small prefolds (preloved) when DD was about 2 months old and didn't get on with them for anything other than stuffing pockets with. They were too small to fan out the back with any real success (and DD poops for Britain!), seemed too bulky between the legs and were a bit too short for her I think.
Then yesterday there was someone offering some large prefolds on freecycle so I thought I'd give them a go now she's 5 months and I could always offer them back onto freecycle if we didn't get on with them.
Well they're amazing, so simple and completely effective... What took me so long?! I haven't mastered nippa-ing them yet but have found that doing the 'boy' fold and then fanning them out at the back works perfectly for her and the wrap really does hold it in place (never believed that would be the case).
She is managing to out pee them within about 1.5-2hrs but we've just been at home today so not a problem. I think they are cotton so probably worth investing in some bamboo or hemp ones to last a bit longer.
I know things might change when she starts crawling around but for now I'm totally convinced by them, perfect for round the house and when I get a bit quicker with them I might even venture to pop them in the change bag... If only I'd discovered this earlier I could have saved a fortune
and I get to use my lovely blueberry coveralls all day which normally only get used at night
Although I think I'd miss my pretty, colourful pockets so will stick with both
I know I'll be preaching to the converted, but if anyone hasn't tried them yet I'd say 'give it a go!'
