I am updating my previous 5 star review. I still think highly of the prefolds, but would like to update our rating for the diaper covers. We have had issue with the snaps coming out of the cover when unsnapping to change a diaper. We have followed washing instructions and care to a T, have made extra caution when unsnapping these covers, and since purchasing them have had to return 2 different covers for the same issue while still under warranty. We do not unsnap the covers for washing as the company asked that we do not to help prevent this, so that is not the issue either. Since receiving a new cover under warranty, I have payed extra close attention to the snaps, very gently unsnapping for diaper changes and it still appears that we will have the same issue the future. I believe that the quality of the cover/snap is just not very good or durable. We have not had this issue with any other brand of snap diaper covers that we own-- only Econobum. If it happens again, we will eventually just be out our money and diaper covers as will not be purchasing this brand again and the warranty is soon to be up. I feel sad that it didn't work out as I like that this brand is economical and simple which were both selling points for us, but unfortunately I do not believe the quality of the covers are worth the investment. I don't care if something is $10 or $50, if I purchase it with our hard earned money, I expect it to work as it should, and unfortunately these covers have not worked for us!

We purchased this kit when we began cloth diapering for our older baby/toddler. The cotton prefolds are my favorite prefolds we purchased. They are absorbent for day and night. At night we would add in 1-2 cotton/hemp inserts, and that worked best for our toddler heavy wetter. These wash well, fold well, and are soft. They seemed to have the best fold/fit inside not only our econobum covers, but also in our FLIP covers. They were easy to rinse clean of BM before putting in the wash. As for the covers, they are simple and also have worked just fine for us. The BM stains have always come out for us after putting in the sun for a little bit. We never had leak issues unless we did not put on correctly. We used these diapers exclusively for a walker/toddler, but soon will be transitioning our 5 month old infant, nursing baby into them. I'm unsure if they will work well with nursing BMs as they do not have the double leg gussets, but I am going to see how it works!

The prefolds cannot be used with the covers provided in the way they are designed to be used. When you trifold them in the econobum covers, they slide around a lot. There are no flaps to contain the prefold, therefore they often stick out of the cover and get baby's clothes wet. Since they don't trifold well, I tried to use them as a normal prefold with pins or snappis, but they really weren't wide enough for my older son. They are about the width of an infant prefold, but are considerably longer. I eventually had to sew my own pockets out of old flannel sheets to put the trifolded diaper in and then used the econobum cover. This worked ok. I recently got them back out to try on my 7-week son (who is large for his age). I trifolded shortways and put them in a flip cover (which I love!!) but they are too bulky for a small baby. It was way too wide between his legs. Overall, I think the Econobum package was a good idea, but it really does not work from birth to potty learning as advertised. In my opinion, one would be better off investing in Flip covers and Chinese prefolds of various sizes. It really would not cost much more.

We have been using BumGenius 4.0's and Freetimes for 2.5 years now. We needed more diapers to help with having 2 in diapers. I cannot believe I didn't buy these sooner! I actually think I like them better than our other more expensive diapers and I definitely LOVE them more than Flips (which we sold). These are so simple and I love the cotton inserts. They are a little more bulky on our little girl (13ish lbs) than our other diapers but they are much more absorbent than the 4.0's and are our go-to diaper now. You don't need a snappi or anything for the prefold. Just fold it in thirds and lay it in the cover! I feel like the cover is less likely to get poop on it than the Flip cover. If you are hesitant to try them because they are cheap so they probably are not good you are in good company. It took me over two years to get over that fear! Best diapers we own. Thanks cotton babies for a great product!

I received this as a present to try on my daughter who is 19 months now. The cover is very thin, but durable. It has an easy to wash inside and it is very stretchy. I wish it came in Aplix, but only the newborn size does. The prefolds are easy to prep. My daughter sleeps for 12+ hrs a night, so i use a prefold plus an insert like a babykick brand. That gets her through the night with no leaks. I pad fold the prefold and it works great.
