Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I read all the comments about these diapers, and I am amazed at how many people have complaints about their quality as a diaper.
I have triplets, and my husband and I are using these for our diapering. The Chinese and Indian prefolds are significantly more costly and with the amount of diapers we need for triplets it would be overwhelming to consider buying them; however, that being said, we used a diaper service for the first three months of our babies being home from the hospital. Of course they provided DSQ (diaper service "quality") Chinese prefolds. Immediately after we switched over to these my husband asked what I thought. We both agreed that while these become soaked SO DID THE CHINESE PREFOLDS! I don't know whose babies do not soak any cloth diapers, but our babies go through both types of cloth diapers with every feeding.
Maybe some people are not wanting to change as frequently as cloth diapers require, but coupled with plastic/vinyl overpants these work great for us. We change our babies every three to four hours, and we have no leaking and no diaper rash issues. At night we use a home-made insert as a doubler, and my understanding is that any cloth diapers require this at night. My babies make it through the entire night without leaking and no diaper changes until morning.
As one other person mentioned, I did pre-wash these diapers the typical recommended five to ten washes to prepare them for use.Read more ›
These diapers are low cost, fast drying, and if you double them up and fold them - you can use them like an insert in a diaper cover. Yes, Indian prefolds and Chinese prefolds are more absorbent - but they also take a lot longer to dry in the dryer. The more absorbent something is, the longer it takes to dry it in the dryer. And when you double them up and put them on baby- they are really not that much bulkier.
Yes, microfiber is more absorbent too, but you don't want microfiber on your baby's skin because it will cause a rash. I wrap a Gerber prefold around my microfiber inserts because the cotton in the prefold is so breathable and it is so much better for my baby. When my microfiber inserts are being "stripped" because they are not working right I had to use my Gerber prefolds as my regular diaper and they did great. Two Gerber prefolds folded in a diaper cover like an insert worked great (will last about 2 hours - which is how often I change my little one). For naps I added 3 Hemp Babies hemp doublers(made by Hemp Babies or Cotton Babies - they are super thin and super absorbent little doublers that you want in you stash) and that worked fabulous for my heavy wetter and lasted several hours.
Furthermore, when I first started cloth diapering, my little one had gotten a rash from a generic brand of disposable diaper - and I could not get rid of that rash even after I switched back to a premium brand. The first morning that I tried cloth diapering I put 2 Gerber prefolds in a diaper cover - and by the afternoon my babies rash was gone!
Second, I don't use them as diapers but more for spit-ups, burp cloth, etc.
Now, to my comments ~ I really liked the size. They were larger than the premiums (size of dinner placemats, lets say). This would be great for placing the cloth over my shoulders. But, I washed and dried (normal cycles) them and boy did they shrink!! (Now, they look like magazine size.) It's all shriveled up and looks pathetic.

I used this burp clothes to embroidery and crochet it to sell. All my clients like this to share with their relatives that are expecting babies.Published on July 1, 2013 by Nivea De Jesus
Definitely not absorbent like real cloth diapers are, but we bought these for the sole purpose to use as burp cloths. And for that purpose they worked just fine.Published on February 13, 2013 by Mary
First of all, these things are like a giant square of gauze with some cotton stuffed in the middle. Everytime baby pees or poos it soaks right through everytime. Read morePublished on December 3, 2011 by Rivershere
