Real Nappies Prefolds

Yesterday I gave you a cloth diaper primer detailing all of the different types of cloth diapers. Today we’re going to take a closer look at prefolds, specifically the Real Nappies brand.20130516-075110.jpg

Real Nappies prefolds are made with premium quality 100% natural Indian cotton fiber certified to the highest Oeko-Tex ecological standards which involves rigorous testing for over 100 harmful substances. They are quite absorbent with up to eight layers sewn in. I love prefolds for nighttime for this very reason. Just pair them with your favorite cover (Real Nappies makes the Snug Wrap Diaper Cover but any cover will work.)

20130516-212037.jpgI boiled and washed them to prep them, then dried them in the dryer which yielded soft, nicely quilted prefolds. I have the crawler size made for babies from 18-31 lbs. My son is just at around 18 lbs so these will last him through toddlerhood. I liked that these were narrower and more trim fitting than the other prefolds I own which is a huge plus when you have a little guy like mine. It is definitely generous enough to accommodate a bigger baby though as I rolled down the top for Jude.


One of the best things about prefolds is they are easy, easy, easy to launder and store. Prefolds can take a beating and keep on going. Real Nappies guarantees they will last through 2 children or your money back in fact. My guess is they would last much longer than that though. There is no stuffing pockets. They dry up nice and fluffy and can be easily put in the sun to remove stains.

There are also multiple ways to wear the prefold. Use a Snappi, pins, a prefold belt or just fold them in thirds and place them in your cover. If you use EC, you can place a prefold under your baby at night in case of a miss. They are also great for potty learning. Simply use a prefold belt and let your child wear the prefold sans cover for quick on and off for potty trips. Your child can feel when they are wet and you can tell quickly when they are wet.
