This post if for what cloth diapering mamas most and least favorite brands of prefold diapers.

So what's your personal most and least favorite brand(s) of prefold diapers?

Pre-Fold Cloth Diaper- Pre-folded cloth diapers, often referred to as pre-folds, are rectangular cloth diapers that are divided into three sections (left, middle, right). While the number of fabric layers varies by brand, all pre-folds have the thickest layer in the middle, where the absorbency is needed the most.

My least favorite that I have tried would have to be Gerber prefold both the regular and the diapers service quality.

My favorite would have to be Green Mountain Chinese Prefolds they work great hold up very well (2nd child in them). However I must admit other then Gerber prefolds and some that I got off ebay (don't know the brand) I haven't tried any other kinds. I would love to try a Indian prefold. I may just order 1 off the site to try. LOL

Side Note: I use a Prorap velcro cover with my prefolds they work super good with any diaper fitted or prefold and no need for pins. You only need about 4-6 covers for a washing every other day stash.

I used the Gerbers prefolds for months, but didn't think they were very absorbent.  My LOs were always sitting in wetness unless I checked them every 30 minutes.  I like both the Indian and Chinese prefolds that I got from  I don't know the brand name.

I use microfiber inserts for naps and stuffing into pocket diapers for overnight, and I have some cotton inserts that I use, too.  My favorite covers are the Bummis SWW.  I've been happy with the results.  DS's bottom is staying nice and dry, even when the diaper is wet.

I use Little Lions and GMDs (Green Moutain Diapers) I love them both. My LL are softer but GMDs have a lot more ranges in sizes, which I like.

GMD is by far my fav. We loved the reds and now we're into browns. Best I've ever used.

I LOVE LL prefolds.  The Gerber's are good for an emergency back-up, but the LL hold wonderfully.  I have been using them since my youngest was a new born and love them.  I've bought more for each stage through coops, and the current set should last him up through potty training.

i am new to cloth diapering and only have gerber prefolds so far, i have the organic ones and the birdseye ones and some other ones i have to double up on them at night to keep from leaking, which i forgot to tonight so we are going to have a middle of the night diaper change...oh well!

  We ALWAYS have to use a good doubler in a PF, no matter what type or brand. So I prefer the regular Gerber birdseye ones - they fit DD the best. They may be a touch less absorbant but since she wets right through every PF anyways we use the ones that fit perfectly. IMO the Gerber ones also wash up better too.
