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.
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.
