I've always used chinese prefolds and love them, I much prefer the unbleached. I got my infant size, green stitching, from Cotton Babies for a good price, I think $1.50 each. I want to order the Premium, blue stitching now, and they don't have them, and can't find anything at a decent price.

What about Indian prefolds? I know they are softer and are supposed to not last as long, but how long should they last?

I wash usually 2x a week and dry in a dryer. I expect to use these for two kids. Cotton Babies is selling them for $2 each in the size I want.

If anyone can recommend a good store or reassure me about Indian prefolds that would be great.

Hi,

 

Not reassurance, but I got Chinese prefolds from Nickie's a while ago and loved them.  Came time to buy a larger size, and all they sell now are indian prefolds... they just never felted up as nicely, to the extent that they're too big to use almost.  I don't know whether it's because they're indian and not Chinese or just because , but I was pretty disappointed.

 

Best,

Anka

Aww, man! That's what I'm afraid of! I love Chinese prefolds, I used them for my older girls, now 10 and 9, and still have many that I've been using as rags for all those years. Unfortunately not enough and not in good enough condition for diaper use anymore, but I used the heck out of them. I really hope I can find some, the green ones are really getting too small.

Guess I'll try calling the diaper services in town and see if they will sell any.

Wow, it's been about 6yrs since I last had to buy ubcpfs, and a lot of the places I bought from don't seem to be in business anymore greensad.gif  How about here:
