Nana's Bottoms prefold conversion

As anyone done this? I'm very curious how you like it. Action shots would be awesome.

I've had her do 2 orders mine was the first she did for us both to see how it worked. The first 4 I had her do m/l second 8 were L since they'd be the last dipes & wanted them to last til PL! Here are links to my 2 threads about them with a few action shots each. I am still loving them! I used imagine toddler prefolds each conversion. Let me know if you have other questions I can answer. Denise was sooooo great and easy to work with can't say enough about how helpful she was and great ongoing communication!

When I first read your post that you linked second here was when I was convinced to try her diapers! I ordered a swim diaper first and just placed my first order for AIOs.

I have some prefolds that I'm just never reaching for and was thinking of selling, but if she'd do a stay dry liner OVER the prefolds in a conversion I might be tempted to do that!

Re: Nana's Bottoms prefold conversion

OK finally home and diapers washed and ready to measure

M/L are 13" long at rest and 17" long stretched out with end to end aplix at 18" stretched out

L are 15" long at rest and 18" long stretched out with end to end aplix at the top 19" stretched out.

But this may differ a bit depending on what size prefold you send her. I had sent her Imagine Indian Prefold Toddler diapers forgot to measure them before I sent them to her but the Nicki's website says that they are 16x21 washed.

If you need any other measurements let me know.

Re: Nana's Bottoms prefold conversion

Question: why do this? Are they more absorbent than just the regular AIOs?

I'm not sure they are any more absorbent, but they're certainly more user friendly than prefolds!

I love this idea. I love the feel of prefolds and we love AIOs. Perfect!
