Note: This is the "inner" absorbent part of the diaper system. It requires a cover (sold separately).
Size XL, Novice and Preemie are not available in organic white. Newbie, which is "large preemie" is available.
UNIQUE FABRIC VERSION ONLY FROM CLOTH-EEZ. Made of organic cotton, we have already removed most of natural cotton oils for easier prepping*. Certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex. True quality! Chlorine-free whitened without optical brighteners. Fewer prep cycles needed since the natural unbleached cotton oils have already been removed - but not with chlorine bleach. They are peroxide bathed (similar to Oxi Clean) to remove the natural oils. Why this version? Lovely organic without a zillion prepping cycles!
Prefolds are the backbone of baby's natural cloth diapering wardrobe. Owning prefolds makes sense. They work. They are easy to wash. They are durable. They are natural. They are economical. They are wonderful! Fold in thirds and lay in a cover, stuff in pocket, wrap around baby and fasten, lay under baby on the changing table. If you own them, you will use them. An excellent choice.
*Prepping means preparing the diapers for the first use - doing the initial wash cycles before using. You still have to wash them through a few times, like you would with any new product, but these don't need as many cycles as the unbleached organic version need before they are ready use on the baby. Thus, these are faster to prep ("prep" means prepare).
Medium is the most-used size and it fits for a long time. 14-29 pounds or 4 months to 20 months. Or perhaps 6 months to potty learning age, depending in the shape of baby and how you use it- fastened, tri-folded or as an insert.
Replace your stinky microfiber inserts with these. Measure your inserts and compare them to the shrunk measurements on the size chart. Novice light green edge is the most popular size for stuffing in one-size pocket diapers. For fully unsnapped rise, Intermediate light blue edge is good but some still prefer novice when trimness is the priority. These diapers are thick, so the Novice and Intermediate tend to give the best fit and are still much more absorbent than microfiber inserts. You'll love them stuffed or just placed in the pocket with the cotton next to baby. That's fast, easy and absorbs quickly for no repelling issues at all. Try it!
Cloth-eez® Prefolds actually fit. A diaper that fits works best. One-size-fits-all really doesn't "fit all". Does a diaper that fits a 2 year old really fit your newborn? Nope. The right size for the right age and weight works best! Diapers that fit and wash easily are diapers you will use. These are the "top of the pile" diapers that you will reach for first and enjoy using.
These diapers are certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, as are all Cloth-eez brand cotton products. Additionally, this version of the prefold diapers is made of organic cotton. We purchase certified organic cotton which is then woven to our specifications, then cut, folded and sewn to become these beautiful diapers. Only the cotton itself is organic, not the entire process. We are both humble and proud to achieve the OEKO-TEX-100 certification of the diapers. This white version has already had the natural cotton oils removed using a peroxide based, chlorine-free whitening process without optical brighteners. Fewer preparation wash cycles are needed since we have already removed the natural cotton oils. The organic unbleached version still has the natural cotton oils and is tan in color.
Affectionately known as "GMD Prefolds". These are hard-to-find, top quality, heavyweight 100% cotton twill diapers. These are the real thing, and so very well made. They are far superior to the store bought kind, and will stand up to repeated washings. Be realistic about the longevity of any diapering item and don't be wowed by unrealistic claims. They are durable and last very well but not forever. They wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". The twill weave allows pins to slide through them easily without making holes in the fabric. But you don't have to fasten them. You can just fold the diaper in thirds and place it in a wrap style cover. You will not be disappointed in these wonderful, versatile diapers. You will find the "prefold love" with Cloth-eez® prefolds. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy.
Why choose which version? You like organic but either prefer the white color or not want to do all the many preparation cycles that the unbleached organic version require.
One FREE pair of pins per order is available with purchase of this item when you add the pins to your cart through this Link.
Please wash several times before first use. This is called prepping. Instructions are included in your order. Link to more washing information.
Please note that you can use any mainstream laundry detergent on cotton diapers. You do not need to purchase "special for cloth diapers" detergents. We do not sell them and they are not needed on prefolds or Workhorse diapers. Keep it simple. Use what you would normally use on your regular household laundry. Use whatever you happen to like that works in your water, but we do strongly suggest fragrance-free versions for use around a baby.
100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester. Made responsibly in Pakistan
When using prefolds as inserts in pocket diapers, they fit differently. Newborn is often used in at the two smallest rise settings. Small is used at the second highest or sometimes even at the highest rise setting. Intermediate is used at full unsnapped rise. Medium can be used at full rise but may be bulky for a pocket but is very absorbent so medium can be a good overnight choice in a pocket diaper at the full unsnapped rise setting. Large generally does not fit in most pocket diapers.
