 Description
Indian Prefolds are amazingly soft and durable. Most importantly, they are extremely absorbent! Indian cotton is the best cotton to use for making prefolds, they are diaper service quality and made of 100% heavyweight cotton twill. Indian Prefolds won't pill and have reinforced stitching.

Using prefold diapers is very economical, but that isn't the only reason to consider using them! Indian Prefolds are easy to wash and quick to dry. You can customize the prefold to fit your baby. They can also be folded so the thickest, most absorbent area is just where your baby needs it. Just click here to learn how to fold prefold diapers! Cotton prefolds can also be used as pocket diapers inserts. And when you know longer need cloth diapers, Indian Prefolds make great dust rags and cleaning rags!

Indian Prefolds must be washed and dried 3-4 times before using. When you receive your new Indian Prefolds they will be stiff and flat. That changes a lot when you wash and dry them. They will become thicker and more absorbent with each washing and drying. You should expect 5-10% shrinkage as these cloth diapers plump up - getting softer and more absorbent.  We do NOT recommend washing on sanitize or extra hot cycles, as this can cause excessive quilting/shrinking.

Indian Prefolds are available in White, Unbleached and Organic.

  • White Prefolds are chlorine free - they have been whitened with a peroxide bleach solution with a low pH level to help avoid skin allergies.
  • Unbleached Prefolds have not been whitened. They will need to be washed and dried at least 4-5 times in HOT water before using. Using a detergent like Tide in the first couple washes will help strip the oils from the fabric. Wash in just clear water the last time to be sure to get out all the detergent.
  • Organic Prefolds are made from 100% certified organic cotton and are a natural color. They should be washed before first use just like the unbleached prefolds. Organic Prefolds are $3 more per dozen.

Indian Prefolds are used with a waterproof diaper cover or waterproof pull-up pants. There are many different kinds of diaper covers - you get to choose what you like best! All of the cotton prefold must be tucked inside the diaper cover so you don't get leaks.

In the chart below, each size prefold indicates the number of layers it has. The prefold is a rectangular diaper made of several layers of cotton twill that are sewn together so the middle area is thicker than the 2 sides. When it says that the Newborn size is 2x5x2 it means that there are 2 layers of cotton on the outside and 5 layers of cotton in the middle.

Great for heavy wetters and very economical
I use these prefolds with BestBottom covers and I wish I had found these sooner. Pros: 1. Really great for heavy wetters - use a newspaper fold 3. Easy to wash and dries in dyer under 1 hr 4. Very soft and fluffy - After several washes these become really soft. Cons: 1. Hard on caretakers who aren't use to folding prefolds. 2. Need to buy a fleece liner for babies who tend to have more sensitive skin

Perfect for diapering an infant
These prefolds were the perfect way to diaper my 6 lb newborn until she was 10.5 lbs. The fit was great with the snappi fastener and proraps diaper cover. They still work for her folded into the cover but I think that is harder to do. They get softer with each washing and will be very useful as burp cloths or inserts now that we have moved onto pocket diapers.
