I like this except for the covers. I prefer my thirsties covers over the Bummis. The reason is that there are buttons to make the thirsties wrap shorter, but no way to adjust the length of the Bummis. I haven't even touched my roll of liners. Also the OsoCozy prefolds were not wide enough for my baby. Even when she was very young. She was born 8lbs 4 oz. I'm not sure if that makes a difference. We ended up tri folding them in the covers. But I originally intended to use a Snappi with these. They are very soft and easy to clean. Overall, I love the prefolds and dont use anything else
I am a first time i went cloth, they were very user freindly. The patern is soo cute,and it goes on pretty much, like a disposeable. They aren't the most luxurious nappy there is but, they practical and no nonscence. I throw everything in the washer when it piles up and they still come clean. No fuss.
I love these diapers! We use them for EVERYTHING - not just diapering. My son is pretty small and the covers were too big for the first month and a half, so we started using the smaller diapers as burp rags and the larger ones as changing pads when we went out. He's finally fitting in the covers, but we still use the diapers for everything. They are so convenient and easy to use and clean! And you really can't beat the price for what you get with this package. I recommend this package to anyone that is considering cloth diapering and wants to use prefolds.
The cloth is of excellent quality. The covers are ok to start out with but you may later want to try other styles of diaper covers. Yes, cloth diapers can be bulky on babies but you and the baby can get used to it. Overall it's a good buy and I'd purchase these again.
Overall, they seem like good quality and absorbent. The infant size was huge when my baby was under 3 months, but she was born at 6 lbs 13 oz so that makes some difference, I'd say. She's 8 months now using the premium size. I have to double it in the back and front so its not too long, which makes me think the infant size may still fit length-wise. At 5 months, I was using the infant size prefold and there wasn't enough material to snappi so we moved up. Some other people commented about these not being the greatest for snappis, and I would agree. I trifolded them into the cover and while that was easier than using a snappi, I always found that the prefold was bunched up when I changed her. Now that I've had experience with these, I think I would rather go with sized prefolds. The fit is better, and I've read that other brands, like green mountain's prefolds, have more material for using snappis.
I am also not a fan of the covers... I have a couple Rumparooz and Thirsties covers- those are much nicer! They have double gussets which makes a big difference with preventing leaks, and they have adjustable snap settings whereas these Bummis covers don't have any adjustment features.
Aside from all that, the prefolds themselves are very soft and feel thick to me, they absorb well for my moderate wetter and quality is great. Been using them for a few months now and they are standing up well. OH I should also say that I was using some pockets with microfiber inserts, as well as some fitteds with microfiber, and I had the HARDEST time getting the stink out!! Microfiber is known for that, wish I had known! So on that note, prefolds are all cotton and do not have issues retaining smells so I love that they come out smelling clean and fresh without having to do any extra steps!
