I need to buy a dozen prefolds and a couple covers to get my dd through the winter before we start potty learning.
The last bunch of prefolds were bought from green mountain, I got both red and yellow thread sizes, these did not last. They came when dd was born in 4/2010, the yellows were used for a short time, maybe 5 months, and lasted fine. However the reds had been in use for less then a year before they started to come apart. Now, after 13 months of use, on every single one of the red threaded prefolds the entire side has separated and fallen completely off from the middle of the diaper. Needless to say I am less then satisfied and not going to be buying more diapers from them.
Prior to buying those diapers I had a stash from ds1, born 2006, that still has a few going strong after he used them and ds2 used them. I want to get those again but cannot remember where I got them from or what kind they are. They have blue stitching on the ends, but not over like the ones from green mountain.
With the same purchase from green mountain I got 4 thirsties dou wraps that have also not lasted. The "plastic" lining is coming off each one of them and the elastic at the leg opening is no longer elastic, again no more then 17 months of use mixed in with other covers. I wash them separate from the diapers and hang them to dry inside out of direct sunlight, sometimes I put them in the dryer on no heat with dry towels, but that is pretty rare. I have bummis sww from ds1's stash that have lasted ok, starting to leak and the hook and loop doesn't really work any more.
