I know there are so many and I have been searching for the best info on the best prefold. There are soooo many choices. Please tell me what you think is "The Best" and where to get it.

Thanks
Cherry

Ditto the pp. GMD are the only ones I'll buy - they fit so, so well as they are shorter in the rise and wider than traditional pf.

Another fan of GMD. Go for the unbleached if you can...the bleached are still nice but I'd LOVE to have some of the soft unbleached!

I have used prefolds on 4 kids for 8 years stright now and these are BY FAR my faves! They are so soft and super absorbent. The durability can't be beat either. They hold up really well!

Those are a decent price too it seems.

GMD - these look like great pf's. I think I may buy these for the new baby. But, wow, shipping charges are kinda high! Anyone else think this?

Yeah, I was hesitant at first due to the shipping (I even emailed them about it), but all in all I think they are worth it. The fit is sooo good and the quality is awesome.

GMD! Just make sure you get everything you'll want from them for a while at once so you don't keep paying shipping. I stocked up on prefolds from them but found everything else I needed at other sites (free shipping).

I used to feel that way about GMD, but my daughter outgrew the brown edge before potty training, so I ordered some toddler prefolds from someone who lives locally, got 3 dozen for the price of 2 dozen and didn't have to pay any shipping. THAT'S the way to go, as far as I'm concerned, is find someone local who sells DSQ prefolds. If you're lucky!

We've used green mountain prefolds too, and they're great. We just bought a dozen unbleached from punkinbutt.com and these I think are our favorites.

They are so soft and nice, and free shipping. Can't beat that.
