Infant Better Fit- Purple Trim- OsoCozy Unbleached Prefold Cloth Diapers
"Better Fit" prefolds are sized to fit in the diaper cover without folding length wise in the diaper cover as required for standard prefolds. This less bulky and easier to use prefold style is growing in popularity. It is specifically made and sized to be used inside a diaper cover using a trifold type fold as per the pictures below. The trifold type fold does not require Snappi fasteners or diaper pins. All OsoCozy® prefolds including these new "Better Fit" prefolds are Diaper Service Quality (DSQ). They are sewn of 100% Indian cotton gauze weaved material. This material quilts up nice and thick with the first wash and these diapers are soft, very absorbant and lint free.
Traditional versus Better Fit
Traditional Fit prefold cloth diapers can be secured to baby with diaper pins, Snappi Fasteners or placed in diaper cover and trifolded (sides folded over the middle) with the extra length then folded over in front or back for additional absorbency. See the first 2 pictures below. Many additional ways of folding these diapers can be found such as the angel wing fold, the bikini twist and others. These versitile work horses have been the standard since prefold diapers replace flat diapers in the late 1960's.
Size Unwashed: 12.5 x 13.5
Size Washed: 11.25 x 11.5
Weight Recommendation: 6-16lbs
Better Fit prefold diapers are sized to fit diaper covers when a simple trifold is used. See first picture below. This results in a less bulky and more comfortable fit. They are 2.5 inches shorter in the infant size.
*Note: Unbleached diapers must be washed and dried 2-3 times prior to use. The washing is required for unbleached fabric to achieve maximum absorbency by removing natural cotton oils from the fabric.
