									Why Use Prefold Cloth Diapers
What is a Prefold Cloth Diaper?
One of the confusing to understand, but simplest kind of diaper to use is the prefold cloth diapers.
These are rectangular diapers with more layers on its middle and few layers on its side. The very
common size is at 4x8x4. The first and the last number is an identification of the number of layers left
and right side, while the middle number is the layers of cloth in the middle of the diaper. The
numerous prefold cloth diapers available in the market differ in the number of cloth layering. The
quality and number of the cloth layering will have a great impact on how well the diaper will perform in
terms of absorption and how long can it last.
A good prefold layering is that which would not appear bulky, keep the baby’s bottom cooler in warm
weather and dry quickly. Prefold diapers may also be bleached and unbleached. The latter is
preferred because it has the ability to last longer considering that the fabric has not been chemically
weakened. Prefolds diapers are also made of difference weaves and fabrics. The commonly used
and most durable are hemp and cotton fabrics. Low quality prefold cloth diapers have rayon polyester
foam which has the tendency to break down easily.
How to Choose Prefold Cloth Diapers?
Many are wondering who are actually manufacturing the best prefold cloth diapers. One consideration
is where the prefold diapers are made. By comparison, it is observed by many users that a prefold
diaper from China is very sturdy. This quality means that they will be able to hold more washes. While
these diapers tend to quilt up after several washes, other products shrink a little more. In either case,
whichever diaper you have decided to buy, also check if the same has the DSQ or the diaper service
quality. Having this mark is an assurance of durability in the product that you have purchased.
Another consideration is weather the prefold cloth that you have chosen is bleached or not. It is
proven by many users that a bleaching agent such as peroxide lessens the sturdiness of a diaper. It
is better to choose the unbleached one to ensure that the bottoms of the baby are not exposed to
unnecessary chemicals. Whichever brand of diaper that have chosen, be cautious also about their
sizing. More often than not, sizing is being done by color scheme or by labeling it as newborn, infant
or toddler. But the most advantageous ones are those which have the all size fits all so that it can be
used from infancy until the baby is a little grown up. The thickness of the prefold cloth diapers also
determines how absorbent it can be. But this is not to say that you should go for that super bulky as
this could be uncomfortable to the baby. Choose something in between being too thin and too bulky.
