I haven’t used them for cloth diapering yet, but for burp cloths, they barely even work, so I’m guessing I won’t bother using them.First off, the flaps on the side aren’t even symmetrical to the pad in the middle…one flap on one side is shorter than the other…so this kind of threw me off right off the bat.I prewashed them about 6-8 times, as recommended by the internet, but they’re still not very absorbent.
These prefolds are too thin. There are better product on amazon…something like indian cotton prefold diapers…dont remember the ones with blue edges
They really do fit better
I have had both the purple and red bordered sizes now, and have been very happy with both. I find that they do indeed fit much better inside the diaper covers than the traditional diapers. Like others have said, these are not meant to be worn like traditional cloth diapers; you simply fold them and lay them in a diaper cover. My little girl just started soaking the purple diapers, so I moved up to the red. She is just under 14 lbs, which is the minimum suggested for the red diapers, so I would say they are pretty on the mark with sizing. We use them with Thirsties covers. I did have to buy larger covers before I expected; the smaller Duo wrap covers claim to go up to 18 lbs but the 14-30 lb (red) diapers don’t fit in them. However that’s okay, because the larger covers fit her fine as well. I’d say that’s more of an issue with the cover sizing, but I thought anyone else using said covers might like to know.
These prefolds thicken with washing, do not fear (I was a little taken aback when I first received the package). However, you need to factor in very significant shrinkage when you select the size.
Easy to use
After buying the newborn size, I bought these. Same thing, just bigger. I use them as a prefold, folded into thirds inside of a FLIP diaper cover. They are very absorbant, wash well, and are pretty soft for cotton.
Bought these in a larger size when we switched to cloth at 14 months with our first child, then came back and bought more in this size for our second baby.These diapers are very well-made. They fluff up nicely after a couple break-in washes. I haven’t had a single one unravel or come apart in any way, despite washing them every 2 days or so over almost two years. I strip them about once every month or two and they have kept their absorbency nicely.The off-white appearance of the unbleached cotton is also great for disguising any remnants of stains that don’t come out in the wash.The "better fit" is fantastic. It’s so annoying to fold over prefolds that are too long – you end up with a funny looking bulge and a gap that allows leaks. With these "better fit" prefolds you don’t have that problem. These work great in Thirsties diaper covers.
But I prefer flat diapers because they dry so so so much more quickly and are easy to fold to adapt to the needs of your baby–for boys, for age, for size…We use these for a little changing mat. Work great, very absorbent.
Super soft and fluffy and absorbant.
They washed up really well and pillowed nicely. They shrunk up a ton from original size though, more then I preferred. They are a tight fit to use pins or a snappi with on my 15 lb 4 mo old. I usually just lay them in her covers or fold them up to stuff pockets with (although somewhat bulky for this use). I use them mainly for nighttime use with a hemp doubler as they have great absorbancy and have yet to have a leak. So, to sum it up, these fit small, but have great absorbancy. I suggest indian prefolds if you want to use with a snappi.
Great bang for your buck
I’ve tried several cloth diapering systems, but prefolds with covers are my favorite. The OsoCozy Better fit are great for simple trifolding and laying in your cover (I use Thirsties and Blueberry covers). I read a lot of complaints about these not fitting well around babies. If you read the description, they are not meant to wrap around baby using traditional wraps, but be used trifolded.That said, my little guy is just now 14 lbs and if I really want I can snappi it in place with a few traditional folds. Even if you can’t get is snappi’ed in place, you should still be able to achieve the basics of a fold (bikini, jelly roll, etc) just without a snappi.These wash and fluff up beautifully (we use All Free and Clear and have had no build up issues).
These are the first prefolds I’ve ever used and I absolutely love them. I converted from pockets to prefolds because of these. Anyone who uses cloth diapers knows how prepping can be a little tedious. I boiled these for about 5-7 minutes and gave them 1 wash and they were good to go and extremely absorbent. These are very cost effective if you are on a budget and can be used for years. I do use 1 other brand of prefolds and I prefer this brand hands down. You will not regret buying these, I highly recommend!
We used these after our little girl’s umbilical cord fell off. (As first time parents and cloth diaper-ers we were nervous about the cloth or cover irritating the cord nub) I pinned them because well, that’s just how I learned how to use prefolds. That being said – they only fit to about 12 lbs, maybe a little more.I have NOT used them any other way and I don’t doubt they’re good to the recommended weight. Personally I prefer pinning because my mush has butt cannon and I feel more secure making a poo pocket with the jellyroll method to help prevent leaks into to cover – which these did great with.I still give these 5 stars because they were the perfect start out diaper. We only got about 4 weeks of use out of them by pinning, mind you we have a fast grower (By time her cord fell off at 2 weeks she was 9lbs and by 6 weeks she was 12lbs), still they were the preferred choice and completely worth it. The shorter length meant no folding over in the front or back which saved a few seconds. When a baby’s that young, unpredictable, and unaccustomed to changes – every second counts. We used these along with the osocozy unbleached size 1, since we got these as a surprise gift we only had one box, so I would use the size 1s during the day and save these smaller ones for daddy’s midnight changes because they were faster and easier.For any first time users – splurge, get yourself 2 boxes (if you’re pinning). If I found them on amazon sooner I would have gotten a second box. Even if you use them for a short period they do come in handy for emergencies like “oh no she just soiled her last changing pad cover” and “she just soiled 3 diapers in 15 minutes, now I’m out and the dryer has another hour before its done”.
Perfect for newborn
Awesome price… pretty unbeatable. The size was great for our newborn, but she grew out of them in about a month (she’s 99% for height). We still use them constantly though with a cover… just tri-folded and laid in a Thirsties Duo Wrap or GroVia shell and you’re good to go. Also use as changing pad protector to reduce cover changes and as burp cloths. They’ve held up well through washing and we’ll definitely use for the next kid.
By far my favorite
By far my favorite prefolds. I tried gerber at first and these are SO much better. They shrank alot at first but my daughter is at 12lbs now and they still fit perfectly. They are very absorbent.
Very happy with this prefold! Def the least bulky choice I have used so far on my one month old. We go about 3-4 hours between changes and no leaks so far. I use one as an insert and one as a cover. Will def get more as she grows
The best cloth diapers!
I love OsoCozy cloth diapers. We use these and their regular unbleached diapers. They hold a lot and much better than disposables or other prefolds. We use a snappi with these right now, but you can also use them with a basic newspaper fold inside a shell. They hold up great to washing and drying. Just do a few hot washes before using and they will quilt up nicely.We originally used a cloth diaper system, but these are so much better as they hold in everything, especially breastfed baby poop! I wish we had tried these first as they are much cheaper and can be used for many other things.
I like the bleached regular size better
I ordered these as I was running through my stash of OsoCozy Medium bleached prefolds. I am disappointed, I wished I had ordered the same as before. The "better fit" just means smaller. These "premium size–fits 14-30 lb" size are the same size as the newborn size I used when my son was a newborn. Not sure if it’s the fabric or the size, but they are not nearly as absorbent as the regular bleached ones, so I make a point of having to change him more often. And if I fail, it’s leak city and I’m changing clothes and doing more laundry. Ugh. Unbleached prefolds are supposed to be softer, but if they are at all it is a marginal difference. I keep these in a stack in the closet and only reach for them if I’m out of the bleached ones.
Great size, nice thickness
These absorb great. They are nice and thick without being super bulky. They will last a very long time if used in a tri-fold. They will not last as long as the description claims if used with snappies though. They just aren’t wide/long enough. However, they hold a ton of pee.
Great for spit-up
These diapers are our burp cloths. We chose them because they are so absorbent. Would recommend these to anyone who has a baby that spits up enough that they’ve started to use all of their receiving blankets, baby washcloths and baby bath towels (yep, all of those for spit up) within a few days’ time.
I really love these prefolds. After washing about 6 times they got nice and fluffy and soft. I use them with Thirsties Duo Wraps and they work great on my baby. I’ve been using this size from about 4 wks and will be able to continue to use them I expect for at least another month. I use the newspaper fold technique, not the tri fold method. If I just did a trifold in the cover, they would certainly last longer.I like the unbleached prefolds because they seems to cover up stains a little better and I know that they weren’t bleached with harsh chemicals. The unbleached prefolds do need to be washed a few times to strip off the oils from the diapers and get them fluffed up so they don’t repel. After that they just get better with each wash!Update: I am finally retiring these prefolds (for now) as my man grew out of them at 17 weeks. That is a lot more use than I thought I would get out of them. at 17 weeks my baby weighs in at about 15lbs, so he’s not teeny, either. You have to be pretty serious about getting them to fit still, but they just barely do. Considering the months of use we got out of them, how well they’ve held up (no stains, odors, tears or holes) they were a great deal and will serve number two when the time comes.
I now own all 3 sizes of these diapers and they all are awesome. They are super soft and absorbent. Although my son is only 16lbs, I use these at night since he is a very heavy night wetter (he has plenty room left in the infant size during the day). I would recommend these to anyone thinking of cloth diapers.
I have been using these prefolds on my 17 month old for a couple weeks now and I’m very pleased with them. I have been using them with snappis, usually one insert, and varying covers (Motherease, Econobum, and Thirsties). I think that they aren’t really supposed to be used with snappis or pins but the snappis have held fine for me. They are sometimes the tiniest bit more stuck than they would have been in the Gerber prefolds, but it is barely noticeable. My baby pees a lot and I really like that these stay drier against his skin for a good amount of time. I hated the Gerber prefolds that we used when he was smaller because they just got evenly soaked with urine so he would have urine touching his legs, stomach, everywhere…I had to do a spot bath every time he was changed. With these it is as though when the liquids go beyond the insert it is absorbed right into the center of the material so the baby’s skin stays drier. These are also quite soft. To dry them I have thrown them in the dryer with laundry balls, line dried them, and done a 1/2 dryer and 1/2 line dry; of course they come out much softer and dry faster in the dryer but I’m pleased with how quickly they line dry and they are a bit stiff but still quite soft after line drying. The size is a good fit for my 17 month old and he is really tall and big for his age-99th percentile for height and 63rd for weight.
I have been cloth diapering for almost 2 months now. I’ve tried several different brands and styles of diapers and I am in love with these OsoCozy Prefolds. I don’t use the full Best Bottom system but I use prefolds in these covers which pair up and make a great combo. I wanted to cloth diaper to be green and save money. I am loving my OsoCozy prefolds and Best Bottom Diaper covers. They have not leaked at all and I have a super soaker for a son. He has had leaks in just about every other cloth diaper we have tried. I recommend purchasing about 5/6 covers and a couple dozen prefolds if you’re on a tight budget and they should get you by for a long time. These prefolds run kind of small. My baby was 7lb 13oz at birth and these prefolds were a great fit then with a snappy. Now that he is almost 2 months and 15 lbs, I can no longer use the snappy. I simply fold the prefold into thirds and lay the prefold on the cover. This technique still holds very well and I am still very happy with my purchase. I might need to get a bigger size soon since these are made to go up to 16 lbs and my LO is almost there… He is growing quick but I think these prefolds will still be great to use in a pocket diaper if my kiddo outgrows them soon. They are very absorbent and I love that I don’t have to worry about leaks.
Great “in-between” size
If you read the reviews beforehand like I did, then you’ll know that OsoCozy tends to run small in their sizing – so that part was no surprise to me on receiving these, or other OsoCozy, diapers. I went for the Premium size for my 3.5 month old (she weighs 12-13lb.; these Better Fit prefolds are supposed to fit 14-30lbs) and they fit great right now. I LOVE the shorter length and they fit very nicely into her diaper covers. I don’t expect these to get me to 30lbs, but hopefully at least 20-25lbs. or so. I’m ok with that. I still like the diapers and think they are of great quality.The reason I opted to try these Better Fit (BF) prefolds instead of OsoCozy’s usual Indian Cotton(IC) prefolds is because the IC sizes available don’t fit my daughter at her current size. From birth, I had been using the IC prefolds in “Infant” size. My daughter started to outgrow them around 3 months (12bs. or so), so I ordered the “Premium” IC. Even washed, the Premium size is huge! Yes, I could fold the end to make the length shorter, but they would then be really bulky – in order to use them, I’d probably have to make a larger size diaper cover just to fit the bulk.So I found these BF ones which are made to have a shorter length to fit into diaper covers better and they have been exactly what I needed for the time being! I’m holding onto my Premium IC prefolds and will break them out in couple months as my daughter grows into them more.4/13/12 UPDATE: My daughter is now 7 months and 17-18lbs. I’m still using the premium sized “Better Fit” prefolds with her, as the regular (non-“better fit”) premium size still seem huge. However I think I’ve discovered something about the OsoCozy diaper sizing: The weight range they give for diaper size must correspond with if you are TRIFOLDING the diapers in the covers, NOT snappi-ing them! Which would make sense why so many people say that their babies outgrow them before the weight given!Around 5.5 months, when I started introducing solids and her poop became less runny, I stopped snappi-ing the prefolds and just trifolded them and laid them in the covers. With trifolding, I’ve found that these premium Better Fit size diapers are likely to last me a looong time now. It makes me wonder if I could’ve gotten more use out of the infant size had I not tried to snappi, but trifolded instead.7/31/12 UPDATE: My daughter is now 10.5 months old and around 19-20lbs. She is STILL fitting into the same premium “Better Fit” prefolds quite nicely (although we use disposables for heavy nighttime wetting now). I fully expect them to last until at least her first birthday, or longer – I’ll update whenever she finally grows out of this size and I have to buy the toddler size.9/10/12 UPDATE: My daughter is turning 1 year old this week and the bathroom scale says 21.5lbs. I’m finally about to order the toddler size – NOT because she’s outgrown the premium size though – but because she’s starting to soak through on a regular basis and I’m hoping the toddler size will give us more absorbancy.5/15/13 UPDATE – I’m so glad that this review of mine has helped so many people! As an update, my daughter is now 20 months and about 24lbs. We’re still going strong in the toddler size. The prefolds themselves are holding up beautifully after so many months of constant wearing and washing. I’m hoping to potty train soon, so these will be put in storage to be used for a future sibling, if we are lucky enough to have another. They are still in great condition and I have no doubts whatsoever about them holding up for a second child. Overall, I have been very pleased with all of the OsoCozy prefolds I have used and would definitely recommend the brand to anyone looking to use prefold diapers on their baby/toddler.
Love this size!
Bought these red edged diapers. LOVE THEM! They are my favorite. I love the wider width as they hold so much more urine before being full. My kid is a heavy wetter and these are great. I love love love them!! We lay them flat (folded in thirds) in a diaper and do not use a snappi.
Way better than regular size 1 prefolds
These are so much nicer than the regular size 1 prefolds for my little guy. I actually like Green Mountain diapers’ Clotheez Newborn size even for up to 6 weeks old. The size of these better fit prefolds was perfect starting about 6 weeks.
Toddler size fits Thirsties size 2 cover
Our son is 14 months old, about 25 pounds, and uses the Thirsties diaper covers in size 2 (snap). The toddler size of these OsoCozy Better Fit prefolds fit nicely in them.*They take extra time to dry in our dryer, but we throw them in with the clothes on high, then in with the diaper covers on low to get them completely dry.
Really like these.
When I decided to cloth diaper my son, I ordered four different kinds of prefolds. These are my second favorites. Until very recently, I was using Snappi fasteners and a standard fold for these diapers, but I think now I might try the way suggested in the product’s details and just lay them in the diaper covers after tri-folding them, because my son weighs about 9.5-10lbs and they’re getting a little too snug on him to fold. If you want to try various folds (bikini, safari, triangle, etc.), I’d go with the regular sized unbleached OsoCozy prefolds, as they give more room lengthwise for folding, and I personally feel safer folding the diapers and using a Snappi. However, these are soft and fluff up nicely, once they’re prepped. (I boiled all my prefolds for ~20 minutes, then washed them on hot, and they get softer/quiltier with each wash.)
Absorbent and easy to use
These diapers are very absorbent, after prepping and extremely easy to use as they just require folding inside a cloth diaper cover – no need to fasten with pins, snappis or boingos. They do take a while to dry if you don’t use a dryer, and need to be soaked for some time in order to get rid of the ammonia smell. I’ve been using them on my newborn since two weeks. She’s now 11 pounds at 6.5 weeks and they still work great.
Really liked these prefolds
We really enjoyed these prefolds. They fit our girl just perfect. She is now growing too big for them at 4 months, looking to buy the larger size now and expecting they will fit her just right like the last ones. She was 7 lbs. 15 oz., 20 inches at birth, and they were too big for her until about a month old though. We also use Thirsties Duo covers and Kawaii diaper covers. We got our use out of them for her first few months of life, and will be reusing them for other purposes now! Cool! I recommend giving these a try.
I like this for my younger baby, but too small for my 29 lb girl.
