Made of 100% certified organic cotton twill!A little about Bummis prefold diapers taken from Bummis website:
Introducing our new ORGANIC Cotton Prefold diapers! These are a totally affordable luxury. Made of 100% certified organic cotton twill, they are wonderfully thick and thirsty. They come in a gorgeous unbleached colour and are incredibly soft. And the more you wash them, the softer they become!
Our ORGANIC Cotton Prefolds are available in 3 sizes:
- Preemie: 2 - 4 kg (4 - 9 lbs) - 2x6x2 ply (perfect fit with a Super Brite Newborn!)
- Infant: 3 - 9 kg (7 - 20 lbs) - 4x8x4 ply
- Baby: 7 - 18 kg (15 - 40 lbs) - 4x8x4 ply
These cloth diapers should be washed and dried 3-5 times before using to remove the natural oils and waxes. Please expect an approximate shrinkage of about 20-25% after completing the pre-washes.
Each half dozen cloth diapers comes in its own beautiful organic cotton packaging bag with a colourful snap closure.
Our ORGANIC Cotton Prefold diapers are made in Pakistan. We are currently working with our supplier on obtaining SA 8000 certification in social accountability.
I've been using the Bummis prefolds on my newborn and have been quite pleased with how well they work and how much moisture they hold. The only time they have leaked was because I didn't have part of it tucked into the cover correctly! There are many different ways you can fold the prefolds, and you can also use a snappi or pins with them to hold it together. I prefer to just lay it in the cover and secure it on with just the cover. However, if your cover is to big you might find that the prefold slips down below the butt. I typically hang dry the prefolds on a clothes line to dry, mainly for the natural sun bleaching option, which works wonders on EBF baby poo! The prefolds get softer and softer after each wash. I have tried a few different brands of prefolds and have to say that so far the bummis are my top favorite. They seem like they will last forever and not break down over time due to washing and regular use.
