Re: Favorite prefolds?

I have used GMD both white and unbleached, grovia bamboo and Nicki's unbleached. GMD unbleached have been my favorite because they stay soft, withstand high temperatures and haven't pilled. Grovia need low temperatures but are super soft. Nicki's have pilled pretty badly only after a few washes and the stitching doesn't seem as thick as GMD.

I like GMD, I bought bleached ones, but I also like ones I bought from Babyworks, Katie's Kisses (out of business) and the ones I've bought FSOT here. They're all very similar, although the longer I have them, the softer they get.

So that's two for gmd prefolds. I haven't tried them but I have tried nickis bamboo and did notice a lot of shrinking.

Anyone else?

GroVia. Just got some on Cyber Monday and they are wonderful. I had heard that people weren't fans of shrinking (they did shrink a lot) so I got a bigger size. They're too big to Snappi right now so I just trifold in the cover and that works. Super soft and super absorbent. Every time I wash them they get more soft.

I've tried Bummis, Grovia, GMD and Diaper Rite. GMDs are my favourite (organic) for their sizing and quality. My Grovias just keep shrinking even after a year of use. I have some of the gold edge ones and about half are 1 inch shorter on both sides then the other half. I wouldn't buy bamboo again because the shrinking is annoying and leads to outgrowing sooner.

I agree. No more bamboo purchases for me either. I lent some of my size large bamboo prefolds to a friend to stuff into her pockets. I use a few for naps but they need a doubler.

This, haha. ^^ And if you asked what my favorite flats are, I'd say GMD, as well.

Another great thing about GMD is the resale value is so awesome. Most other prefold brands don't seem to hold their resale value nearly as well.

I bought all my prefolds new, direct from GMD at full retail price + shipping. (Yes, I know. I hadn't found this site yet!) I've sold the ones we've outgrown for very close to retail price and very quickly.
