Fluffdom Express: Better for Babies: Little Beetle Prefold {Review & Giveaway}



When searching for cloth diapers and special needs, you sometimes come up at some, well.... 'different' places. Some of which make you wonder how that has anything to do with cloth diapers or special needs. But some of those searches turn up great places. That's how I found Better for Babies!

Better for Babies: natural, organic, and uncompromising baby products. It's a great description for them.


I never thought that I would like prefolds, after the fiasco with them several years ago when we used them with one of J's sisters. Granted, I had no clue of how to use them... and, most importantly, wash them. But, no matter all the things I did wrong, it was evident that prefolds weren't something my dad had any interest in, even now. That all changed when we got to review the Large/Toddler organic prefold from Better for Babies. Made with soft organic fair trade velour on one side, beautiful and heavy duty Hemp French Terry on the other, with a hidden soaker layer of 3 more layers of hemp french terry. It's a thick prefold, but since it's made out of hemp, it's also more absorbent.

When I got J ready for bed the other night, I put him in the Little Beetles Prefold, held it with a snappi, and covered it with our polar bummi. Daddy wasn't real optimistic about the whole situation, but agreed to let J wear it.... as long as I changed his diaper and washed the bedding if he leaked. The next morning, J was still wearing the prefold and cover, even though he'd wet way more than he usually does at night. An added bonus was his diaper rash was looking much better as well. Because there is no PUL or TPU, the air is allowed to circulate around the baby's bum and allows any rash to start the healing process. That's why even when J wets more or poops during the night, if he's in a fitted diaper or a prefold, his rash always looks better.

Prefolds are different than diapers. They're a rectangular piece of absorbent fabric and like a fitted diaper, they need a cover. Plus, the sizing for prefolds is different. You won't find a prefold with a weight range, but with the actual measurements for the size of the prefold. 

Little Beetles prefolds are more expensive than other prefolds I've seen. Running from $11.15 - $12.45 each. It's still less expensive than buying pocket, AIO or AI2 diapers in larger sizes. The Large/Toddler prefold is a less expensive option for special needs kids or for any little one who suffer from constant diaper rashes.

The only thing I wished was different about the prefolds was instead of cotton velour, it was bamboo. Understandably, it would increase the cost of the prefolds, but if you have a little one who gets constant and repeated rashes, it's much better.

J thinks it's a great diaper, but it would much better served if he got to carry it around and rub the velour on his face! {smile}. As for the rest of us? I think most have gotten over the assumption that if it's a prefold, it leaks. I'd love to get some more prefolds for J to use for night-time.
