Cotton Pre-folds

Our cotton  prefolds are rectangular  pieces of nappies made of  multiple layers of 100% cotton with the central layer being thicker for  higher absorbency where needed.
These larger  nappies come in 4 sizes  from Preemie to Toddler .
There are  two stitch  lines  running down the length  to divide the width of the prefold into  thirds.
The 2 outer thirds comprise of 4 layers of cotton and the central third has 8 layers of cotton.  In the preemie size, this is  formed of 2 and 6 layers  respectively.

The  stitch lines act as  folding  guide lines so the prefold can be simply pad folded and laid into the covers,  or they can be wrapped around the baby and fastened with a nappy pin or Snappi.  They can also be folded into quarters along the length   to  make for a shorter fit.

With prefolds you get  great absorbency and easy customisation. It also dries relatively quicker and and due to the surface area.   When washed, these have a quilted  appearance and  soften up considerably. 

Our 100% natural unbleached cotton ensures  wonderful softness against your baby's  bum, and is ideal for  babies  with sensitive skin, or  whom may react to synthetic fabrics, or disposable nappies. 

Prefolds can be used  for other non-nappy related functions.  As they are so absorbent, they can be used as burp cloths  to clean up spit-ups and as changing mat liners which absorb any accidents and preventing  other items of clothing from getting soaked!.

Our prefolds come in the following sizes:

Preemie:
These nappies are designed for the  tiniest bundles  of  joy,   therefore they are  much smaller  with  less layering to  reduce  bulkiness.  the length of time your baby is in this nappy will depend on how small he/she is at birth.  these nappies also act as boosters for other prefolds when  a bit more absorbency  is required, so they may get outgrown but still have a lot of usefulness for  long time to come.
