Blueberry Organic Prefold
- 100% Organic Cotton
- 6 pack
Prefolds are as basic as you can get with cloth diapering. It's a staple for most moms that use cloth diapers. Regardless of the system you have, you will always need prefolds at least during the newborn stage, or even just for back up.
Made with 4x8x4 layers of 100% organic cotton twill that gets softer and more absorbent the longer it is used.
Sold in 6-piece packs.
Folding the diapers
The most popular way for newborns and girls is to fold the diaper into thirds. Lay the diaper with the two parallel stiched lines running horizontally and fold over each other as shown in the diagram. Lay on top of a waterproof cover and fasten securely to the baby.
As boys get older, folding the diaper to create extra padding in front is the most popular. Lay on top of a waterproof cover and fasten securely to the baby.
A modified version of this fold is useful in containing very loose stools, or if you want to secure the diaper with fasteners.
NEWBORN size measures 12x13" and is good for babies 5-10 lbs.
SMALL measures 12x16" and is good for babies 7-15 lbs.
MEDIUM measures 14.5"x17" before washing and fits babies 12-25 lbs.
LARGE measures 14.5"x21" before washing and is good for babies 15-30 lbs.
Before Using the Diapers
The diapers need to be pre-washed on hot at least once before. Two or three times, and dried in between, is preferable as this causes the diapers to fluff up and become more absorbent. The diapers will shrink and get thicker with the first few washes. This shrinkage has been allowed for when designing the diapers.
Washing the Diapers
Keep your wet and dirty nappies in a diaper pail or wet bag. Wash in warm or hot water with the recommended amount of detergent as stated on the detergent’s container. Too much or too little may cause your diapers to possibly stink, leak, or leave baby with a rash.
An additional rinse can be used for particularly soiled loads. Make sure that your diapers are rinsed clean. Tumble or line dry.
