Prefolds are one of my favorite diapers to recommend. They are made of natural fibers, easy to clean, durable, and simple to use. If they are made of the proper fabric and thickness, they are also very absorbent. All prefolds are not made alike. The design and fabric can vary from one manufacturer to the next.
Prefold definition: Rectangular diapers that have more layers in the middle and fewer layers on the sides..
You may see the prefolds labeled as 4x8x4 or 4x6x4. That pertains to the layers of fabric in the diaper.
4x8x4 = 4 on both sides, and 8 in the middle
4x6x4 = 4 on both sides, and 6 in the middle
Prefolds can be folded and laid into a trim cover, or folded and fastened on baby. Prefolds need a waterproof cover over the top.

I changed my eating habits and started enjoying working out. You’ll probably … Read More

Growing up in the seventies and eighties, disposable diapers were something that I took for granted. In the late 1940s crude paper disposables first made an appearance and in 1961 a major brand of disposable diapers was launched. Disposable diapers were originally made of paper pulp with a thin plastic covering. Over the past 50 years, disposable diapers have changed and evolved into what is currently on the market today. But what exactly is in these diapers? I was surprised when I found out.
Have you ever wondered what makes modern disposable diapers so super-absorbent? It’s a chemical compound called Sodium Polyacrylate. This compound binds to liquids and can hold 200 to 300 times its weight, turning from a powdery substance into a gooey gel. It is also used in some potting soils to help the soil retain water. If you’ve ever changed a diaper and found small gel … Read More
