Looking for a new pf

I have 19mth old triplets & have been using mostly flip & thirsties covers. Some grovia. We can no longer use flip stay dry or bummis infant pf b/c they drench them. I like the organic flip inserts but was trying to be more cost efficient. I upsized to the bigger bummis pf but they are massive! I have to fold them sideways in four to fit them in the cover. I like a big diaper bum, but these look ridiculous. Needless to day I havent been hanging out on DS much since they were born so I don't know what other choices there are.

Cotton prefolds couldn't hold my heavy wetter but the imagine bamboo prefolds are working great so far! Also the imagine flats are rocking but a little more pricey.

Are the bamboo prefolds and flats the same material? I like the prefolds and really want to try the flats.

The pf are amazing. I'd say easily 3x the absorbency of an infant pf.

The Imagine Bamboo Prefolds are awesome! They are SO soft and SO absorbent. I haven't tried the smalls yet but I'm hoping to get some for daytime. I use the mediums w/doubler in a Wallypop cover for night with DS who is 28mths and an average wetter. I use the mediums during the day too but they are a little long for most covers though they fit well in my Green Line covers because those have a high back. I think the smalls would probably be great.

Re: Looking for a new pf

imagine bamboo are great, and they come in smart fit sizes (different lengths and widths to fit in sized covers without folding down the rise). hemp is also amazing. i have 22 excellent used condition 100% hemp contour (like prefolds, but alreadly contoured to fit to just lay in the diaper cover, no folding) wonder-full brand diapers WITH snap-on doublers for sale just sayin'. pm me if you're interested.

Do you use the size small or medium imagine bamboo prefolds?

I think the flats are a woven material & the prefolds are smoother. I believe both are a 55/45 cotton bamboo blend.

Both. I bought small for baby #2 that is on the way but use them inside BG pockets on the medium snap rise for less bulk. The mediums also fit on the medium snap rise &
Give more absorbency. Both work FYI the large prefold is huge!
