Easy, Affordable Cloth Diapering

Easy, Affordable Cloth Diapering

Looking for a way to make cloth diapering affordable for your family? Consider our organic cotton prefolds

While prefolds have a history of being more complicated and challenging, they are actually one of the easiest diapers on the market! With the advances in absorbency in materials and trim fitting covers to fit over top, prefolds can be just as easy to use as your favorite pocket diaper but for more than half the price!

These inserts are a totally affordable luxury. Made of 100% certified organic cotton twill, they are wonderfully thick and thirsty. They come in a gorgeous unbleached colour and are incredibly soft. The more you wash them, the softer they become!

Place a prefold insert inside a waterproof wrap (such as the Bummis Duo Cover or Bummis Simply Lite) to create an effective and affordable 2-piece cloth diaper. Superb absorption and a snug and waterproof fit – you just can’t go wrong with prefolds and wraps! They are versatile and extremely durable.

With prefolds you can get started cloth diapering for less than $300. They come in packs of 6 together and then your purchase your covers separately. You can also add these on to your current stash to increase the number of diapers in your rotation affordably.

We still have prefolds in our household that have been used on 4 children and are now being used a rags and cleaning cloths! Have your prefolds held up over time? What do you use them for now?
