If you've been looking for an extra absorbent diaper for your super soaker baby, or you need to know the diaper will make it through the night, you've found THE diaper! Nothing absorbs like hemp fleece!
Made from 2-3-2 layers of luxuriously soft 55% hemp/45% cotton fleece, these prefolds are up to any task, from being pinned, folded in thirds in a snug fitting wrap, or as a pocket diaper stuffer.
Prefold Size Guidelines:
- Extra Small - Preemie to 9 lbs - yellow thread
- Small - 7 to 13 lbs - lavender thread
- Medium - 12 to 20 lbs - green thread
- Large - 18 to 27 lbs - dark red thread
- X-Large - 27+ lbs - slate blue thread
Please be aware that these size guidelines are only approximations. The best Prefold size for your baby may vary based on the baby’s age, body type/shape and diapering style.
I received a Babykicks Hemp prefold as a gift and was immediately struck with how soft it was! It lost a tiny bit of softness in the prepping process but is still softer than my cotton prefolds. It takes a snappi or boingo well, better than many other hemp or bamboo products on the market. It's also suuper absorbant. My super-soaking, night-nursing chubbo wore it to bed one night and woke up happy. The front of the prefold was soaked, of course, but unlike the times I have tried cotton prefolds at night, his bum was dry. I would feel confident pairing this with a wool soaker for a super soaker baby! I have the large size, and my baby is 11 mos and 23 lbs. It's still reasonably trim despite being folded down in the front to use up some extra length. It's not as trim as the Babykicks Premium Pocket, but as far as prefolds go, it's quite trim while still being quite absorbant! If I had gone down a size, it would not have needed to be folded down in the front and would have been trimmer. I would recommend this to anyone looking to branch out from cotton prefolds, or in the smaller size to stuff pocket diapers!
I absolutely love prefolds as inserts and this one is exceptional! Hemp is an amazing natural fiber and these prefolds are so soft and fluffy. I absolutely love them! They work great trifolded and used as a lay in or pocket insert and they of coarse work great as a regular prefold. I love that you can also use a snappi or a boingo with them!
These are the softest, trimmest, most absorbent prefolds we own. They are so soft my daughter tries to use them as a blanket. I love that they have a little stretch to them which makes getting a great fit easy. We use the medium with our 22 lb 17 month old and there is plenty of room to use a snappi on them. They really do hold a ton of wetness without being super bulky.
For those of you that were having problems with the snappi or if your just wanting to know the different folds or getting a great fit, this is a great video about these diapers http://youtu.be/R0l6Wq-iVFM It helped me alot in the beginning! By far the most absorbent newborn prefold out there!
I had a preemie and this prefold ROCKED! The preemie (yellow Trim) fit my baby from birth (5lbs, 13oz) until he was able to fit into his one size diapers. They are practically leak proof, when paired with a Bummis Super Brite cover. There was a learning curve with using the snappi with these, but once I got it, it was a cinch. I watched many of the video's on BabyKicks YouTube channel and they were SO helpful. These were so absorbent, I never had a leak, and OH SO SOFT! My mind was put at ease with these super soft diapers next to my tiny baby's sensitive bottom. I really can't say enough good things about this diaper!
