Prefold Cloth Diapers & Reusable Covers from Real Nappies

New Disclosure (Above placement)Whether you are new to cloth diapers or a seasoned veteran, you probably have had some experience with prefold style cloth diapers even if you don’t realize it. I used prefolds as burp rags with T-Bones and Tates before we actually cloth diapered and now like them for their intended purpose ;). Real Nappies offers prefold style cloth diapers and reusable covers that are easy to use, an all natural fiber option and easy to launder making them a great and affordable option for families.

We were sent a Real Nappies Cloth Diapers Top-Up Pack to use on Tates, each Pack contains the following:

  • 6 Real Nappies prefold cloth diapers (several sizes available, newborn to 40lbs!)
  • 2 Snug Wrap white diaper covers (velcro closure only)
  • 1  helpful User Guide (a great reference tool!)

prefold cloth diapersMade from 100% premium indian cotton Real Nappies prefolds are super soft and very absorbent, with each wash they really do get softer and fluffier. Each prefold is customizable to your babies needs with the endless folding options and since they are a large flat piece of cotton they dry very quickly.

I really like the front panel on the covers, perfect for tucking the prefolds into when trifolding and keeping them in place. You can see how wide the panel is (as long as a Boingo) and how easily you can tuck in your prefolds. Not a fan of pins, snappis or boingos no problem, these covers offer such a great fit you don’t need to have anything to keep the prefolds where you put them.

  3. Thank you for posting this. I have been cloth diapering for almost a year now and I have yet to try prefolds. I have heard mixed reviews about them and have been a little afraid to try them to be honest, but thanks to this post I am thinking I will give it a shot now :) Thanks so much

    Didn’t use cloth diapers, thought it would be too much work…now I know better

  6. Debbie Welchert says:

    These sound wonderful. I used disposable diapers with my daughter 30 years ago. I tried cloth diapers but didn’t like them. I don’t know if I would use these today if I had a baby or not. But they do sound nicer then the ones I used.

  7. I wanted to use cloth diapers but never did because I didn’t know to much about it ‘I would like to find out his much money is saved monthly I know its a lot safer for my boys.
