I know premie prefolds fit well in the smalls, and the small Joey Bunz, I THINK fit well and are WAY more absorbant. Happy Heiny's has their own stuffers they sell, too.<br>
If you fold it just right, you can fit an infant prefold in them, but it's a bit bulky. Very economical, though. The 4x8x4 ply infant prefold can be used with all the sizes, too, so it's very economical. Again, VERY bulky, though, in the small.<br>
Linda, can you comment on this? I remember putting an 8 ply infant in my old small, which was even smaller than the current design, so I know it can be done, but would you recommend against it?
You can fit a infant prefold into the smalls. As a matter of fact my SIL uses 2 infant size prefolds a bit bulky for my tastes but it does work.<br>
The hemp stuffings are pretty slim and you can get several different brands of this.<br>
I would not use 1 preemie prefold at all for a pocket stuffer.
Oh good! Yeah, I wouldn't use one premie prefold as a pocket stuffer, either. Maybe 2. For some reason I thought you used to recommend the premie prefolds as stuffers for the small, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:
I do but just was saying not to use one.<br>
When I set my SIL up with the diapers I gave her a ton of preemies and a ton of infants. She used 'sposies for the first week, they were gifted, then switched to the cloth.<br>
Well, when I found out she was using the cloth I asked how it was going at night, she said "well we are using 'sposies because they were leaking really bad"<br>
I asked what she was using and she said one of the small ones meaning the preemie, expected to last 4 hours at night. Heck, I don't blame her for switching to 'sposies I wouldn't want the bed that soaked either.<br>
She started using them as doublers with the infant and everything worked better and she stopped using the 'sposies.<br><br>
Now, something I don't agree with, she uses 2 infant prefolds during the day and night in the smalls and meds.<br><br>
So yes the preemie fit fine, just don't use 1 and expect it to last more than one wetting and especially don't expect it to last for a couple hours at night with a newborn <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:
:LOL That's funny. I remember when I first started CDing my first child. I would have probably tried to use a premie prefold at night, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I've come a long way, baby!<br><br>
Kate~ a Joey bunz <i>is</i> a hemp insert/stuffer. Wasn't sure if you knew that and just worded it funny.... So you would use it inside the Happy Heiny for a wonderfully trim fit. There are other kinds of hemp inserts/stuffers out there besides Joey Bunz, though. Most people can get through the night with 2 or 3 Joeys in a pocket diaper. Caden can usually get through with 3 large Joey's, but is a very heavy night nurser, so I use a hemp prefold inside mine at night most of the time.
