We just started cd'ing and we don't have a lot of choice for diapers in our stash. We have some snug to fits, a few doublers, bummis covers, and prefolds. Using the prefolds is so easy and fast (most times anyways, lol). I have some more used fitteds and a couple AIO's on the way, but I have a feeling I'm going to be buying more prefolds and barely using the the fitteds, etc. We use a snug to fit at night though, I'm not sure a prefold could hold what she pees during that time.<br><br>
I just had to share my love of the basic prefold...I'm sure I can't be the only one who loves them...right?<br><br>

You are not alone! I am working on my fitted and aio stash but I find myself at least 1/2 of all diaper changes grabbin the prefold! I am perfecting my snappi'ing so I can use it with my wool <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I did dye a couple of prefolds bright reds and purples and baby blue... I do reach for those first.<br><br>
And! I have 3 dozen bleached regular prefolds that are almost 3 years old now. Getting threadbare in places but they are soooooo soft! They are reaching their prime <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Tammy....you're in Canada...where do you buy your prefolds? I hate to purchase online from the States because I never know if they are going to charge me duty etc, plus I like to buy from Canada as much as possible. Is there a good Canadian online shop you would recommend? One with decent prices too?

The only ones I have are dyed, all blue except one tye dyed one. One day when I buy some more I want pink, purple or red for my dd. I am guessing they can't be too hard to dye a solid colour?

I'm loving the prefolds too. I have lots of yummy dipes in my stash, but I still reach for the prefolds. The yummy dipes are my fancy, company's coming dipes!

I used to have a huge stash of pockets, fitteds and aios, but I seem to always reach for my prefolds so I'm put the rest aside until I get the nerve to sell them. I'm definitely feeling the prefold love <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I wouldn't say I love the prefolds the best, but I always put them on DS when I think he's going to poop. It is so much easier to clean. I also like folding and snapping them, I feel like I'm "creating" something. I know, how weird, right?

Dh likes the prefolds better than I do. I prefer my Little Lambs AIO's. We use our prefolds with a FB cover so we can just lay in the prefold. We both gave up on the snappi a long time ago.

i love 'em too! I recently found an infant premium diaper and decided to try it on Edward (he's 15 months). It fit like a bikini but worked great for daytime. I love how versital prefolds are!!<br><br><br>
