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.

If you haven’t seen the show, Betty is a more realistic portrayal of what a 1960′s upper-middle-class housewife would look like; picture perfect on the outside but trapped and lonely on the inside. There … Read More
I’m going to forewarn you…this is not for the faint at heart. I also wouldn’t suggest reading this over your breakfast of perfectly poached eggs and fresh fruit. (Wait! You don’t eat that either? Okay bowl of cereal when you are able to eat, right?) That being said…
When I decided to get pregnant back in 2008 I knew that things would change when it came to my appearance. I anticipated the stretchmarks on my belly, breasts and thighs. I even expected that my hoo ha would most likely never be the same especially if I had a vaginal birth. I even expected to be somewhat sleep deprived for the next ten years. What I did not expect was the lack of control my pelvic floor would undergo once my darling son was brought into this world. I got pregnant with my second child in 2010. A little nausea here … Read More
