Prefold diapers, sometimes considered the old-fashioned cloth
diapers, are pieces of cloth that have been folded numerous times into
layers and sewn into a convenient rectangular shape. Although they are
"prefolded" they do still require minimal folding to fit your baby; and
must be fastened with diaper pins or a Snappi. Alternatively, Prefold
diapers can be tri-folded and positioned inside any of our wonderful
diaper covers, then simply fasten the diaper cover onto the baby.
Understanding Prefold Diaper Terminology
"Diaper Service Quality" (DSQ) are considered the best quality
Prefolds. They are typically made from 100% Chinese or Indian Cotton.
Prefold diapers are generally defined according to their layers;
4x6x6 or 4x8x4. These numbers indicate the layers in each panel of the
prefold diaper (the smaller number represents the outer panels and the
larger number represent the more absorbent center panel).
However, other materials, such as Hemp and Bamboo, are quickly
becoming popular choices due to their super absorbency, trimness, and
anti-bacterial properties. Our Hemp Babies Weeds products can be used
as a standard Prefold diaper; when folded they also make excellent
inserts/doublers for pocket diapers.
