In the past, we’ve had the cheek to call prefolds the “ultimate” cloth nappy. So today we’re going to give you 5 reasons why they’re so flipping fabulous… and then do something really silly and tell you 3 reasons why they might not work for you.

In the past, we’ve had the cheek to call prefolds the “ultimate” cloth nappy. So today we’re going to give you 5 reasons why they’re so flipping fabulous… and then do something really silly and tell you 3 reasons why they might not work for you.

Ready?

Here are 5 reasons why choosing a prefold style cloth nappy is a good idea:

  • They’re easier on the back-pocket than modern cloth nappy styles

  • They’re easy to care for: you don’t have to remember to fold back the velcro or hang a particular way to prevent drag on elastics

  • They’re seriously versatile: prefolds can be folded in a variety of ways to suit baby’s body type and size

  • They LAST: prefold nappies, when cared for correctly, can last through a child’s time in nappies, and then some

  • They’re multipurpose: once you’re finished using them for nappies, they can used for a variety of purposes around the hom

And now for the 3 reasons why you wouldn’t want a prefold:

  • Prefolds = learning curve: you will need to learn the ideal way to fold prefolds to ensure the best fit for your bub and this might take a bit of time, especially if you can’t manage a real-life demo

  • They aren’t often popular at daycare centres or with care providers so you’ll need to invest in something ready-made, such as pocket nappies, if you’re leaving baby with someone other than family

  • They require extra supplies, like Snappis and covers
