Quoting lolajessup:" . Indian? I wanna make some converted prefolds. Although it would b easier just to pay te $6 to have them made for me :wink: haha"


Wondering if you should go with Indian prefolds or Chinese prefolds?
Indian prefolds benefits:



Softer cotton
These are probably made of gauze cotton
Unbleached diapers wash up quicker (3 washes)
More absorbent


Indian prefolds drawbacks:



May wear out faster than the Chinese prefolds.
Lighter weight thread is used when sewing the ends of the diapers so the thread may wear out faster than the fabric does.


Chinese prefolds benefits:



Heavier duty stitching
These are probably made of twill
Due to being made of a heavier-weight fabric and stitched with a thicker thread, these prefolds will probably stay nice longer than the Indian prefolds.


Chinese prefolds drawbacks: May pill up more than the Indian prefolds.
These diapers are still soft but they are definitely rougher than the Indian prefolds (when washed and dried in the same load)
It takes 7-10 hot wash cycles to make an unbleached Chinese prefold usable and absorbent.

Indian! :)



I used Indian & they were amazing.



So soft and fluffed up really nicely.. If i were to ever use prefolds again i'd get the same ones.



If its going against bubbies bottom def try to get the softest as their skin is so delicate.

I've been on a 'buying ban' but DH caved & fessed up to buying some PS3 games which meant i got to buy diapers to the value of his spending spree.

Im so excited to get my NB stash started.



I cant wait to destash all of our workhorses when our new diaper stash arrives so i can get more tiny cute fluff from my fave WAHM's - YAY!



Here the tots bots & blueberry minis cost $28 each PLUS $8 regular post!!! :shock:



I got them both from the US shipped with insurance for $50.



Australia are freaking rip offs.



Anymore NB fluff recommendations mamas?

I've been talking to mamas on a FB cloth diapering page, quite a few LOVED the tots bots teeny fit/tini fit (sp?)



Im planning on ordering a few more, they just a bit on the expensive side.. i guess thats ok though because im not 'needing' them :wink:



All a part of my plan hahaha!

That's what I ordered. Just ordered 10 infant size ones from Cotton Babies last night. :) I posted it 'cause someone was asking what the difference was. ^_^

Lol! I'm terrified! That's why I'm just going with flats/prefolds and covers. I use cloth because of money mostly anyway and that's the cheapest way to go it seems. Plus it works SUPER well for my 13 month old... (Flats anyway - still waiting for my prefolds). I found a local store that sells GMD prefolds so if I like the cheap ones I got for DS I'm going to try those next. You can buy them by the half dozen instead of by the dozen and by the time shipping is factored in they are the same price as ordering but I can look at them first. lol.



Just hoping to find the right cover! I might do some mini monkey ultra trim AI2s instead of just covers so I have some kind of snap in inserts for some convenience at night... But other than that NO idea. And I only have 3 months left!!! Not enough time!!!
