It does wonders to sanitize also! So cool
Happy Heiny's One size is a good option. We mostly use prefolds too, but we do have HH One Size to use occationally. There are several different ways to wear them and they should fit for a very long time...hopefully until potty training! You can save money if you buy a bunch or 6 or 12 too

I know that sounds crazy, but the naps were becoming a problem like you describe....a little nap and it was up 'til who knows when. Both of them would get up and be up at 6 or 6:30am.

A word of advice, don't even bother with the ones you can buy at Wal-mart...they just don't last as long and are not nearly as absorbent.
