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 are diapers you will use. These are the "top of the pile" diapers that you will reach for first. Well-loved. In the sizes that fit your baby. Measurements listed are approximate and shrinkage will vary which is normal for this kind of fabric. Edge color/tone will vary. Be sure to look at the pictures on babies.
The "white" version on this page is a creamy white because we do not use optical brighteners on the cotton. They are not chlorine bleached, either. They are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO TEX® and meet CPSIA standards or course, too (every baby product on our site meets CPSIA standards). Because our white is less processed than your typical bright white cotton, they feel softer. Color-coded edge stitching makes it easy to find the right size diaper in your pile. These beautiful classic diapers are so nice!
Affectionately known as "GMD Prefolds" are the gold standard for prefold diapers for over a dozen years! Award winning, top quality, heavyweight 100 % cotton twill diapers are so very well made. They will stand up to repeated washings. Don’t overlook this very economical way to diaper! It works very well. Plus, they wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". It’s very easy to Snappi fasten or pin these diapers on babies who don’t yet roll over. But you don't have to pin 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. These are the very best fabric, 100% Indian cotton, 4-8-4 ply, with the strongest edge stitching available, and custom sized for prefold perfection. These are exclusive to GMD and are not available anywhere else, and are not marketed under any other brand name but Cloth-eez®. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy.
100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
Please wash a few times before first use. 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 strongly suggest fragrance-free choices.
Please be sure to see this on a baby to learn more and pick your correct size. Sizes overlap and are approximate.
100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.
I just ordered another dozen of the size Medium unbleached prefolds because both my daughters have worn that size primarily for over a year and my older ones were starting to show the wear. With kid #3 on the way, I figure another dozen will be well-used. Neither of my girls ever made it to the large size before they were potty trained (they are on the smaller side and we just fold the diapers into the covers). The older ones can still be used for sure; they are just starting to fray at the edges a bit, but remain highly absorbent.
These and the size newbie have worked for us up until our son was one month, but we're finding the prefold-in-a-cover style to be too bulky for his comfort. Looking into some all-in-ones for nighttime and fitted diapers for day going forward.
I started cloth diapering our first child with microfiber hand-me-down inserts from my sister. They worked fine, but got pretty stinky and worn out after two years on our oldest. I was stoked to try real cotton diapers with our second! She was born at 10 1/2 lbs so we went straight for the yellow edge smalls (unbleached) and also decided to get a dozen green edged doublers (bleached) to start. I prepped them with the washes of odds and ends diapers we were using when they arrived, so did a load every other day in hot water with normal detergent. The bleached doublers became absorbent after three washes, but the unbleached prefolds went through six washes and still didn’t quite seem ready. I didn’t realize there would be a difference (but it makes sense when GMD explains that the unbleached have more natural oils still). But I put a prefold on her today anyway, and it did leak a little. So I’ll keep prepping them. We live in California and it makes me feel badly to use so much water! But they seem to fit well folded up in both our thirsties and flips covers (snapped to the smallest or second smallest size) and they are so much softer than the microfiber. We’ve also simply been using two or three of the doublers in the covers and they work great too. We thought about bypassing prefolds all together and just using doublers whole she’s little. Probably would have worked fine.
Thank you for your review. Using the white version of the diapers greatly lessens the number of prep cycles necessary if that is a concern. Also making sure that the water is indeed hot going into your machine (run the hot tap closest to the machine prior to starting machine to ensure that no room temp water from pipes gets into machine thus cooling down the wash temp). You can also throw the diapers in with other loads of family laundry to help get them prepped. More items in the load help; friction is part of the process.To test one out take a dry one to the sink and pour a little water on it. It should not bead up. If it does the diaper will probably leak. More cycles needed. But once they are prepped we are confident they will be wonderful!
When I started cloth diapering I tried so many different types of diapers, I was never completely satisfied with any until I found green mountain prefolds. They are the perfect diaper, they’re absorbent, soft, wash up easily with no special detergents or stripping needed, they fit both of my children well, and really hold up over the years needed. I would recommend these diapers to everyone!
