OsoCozy Bleached Indian Prefolds Review
This Prefold IS included in the OsoCozy Giveaway.
Size Premie 2x6x2 - Fits 4-10 pounds (white edge)
Size Newborn 4x6x4 – Fits 6-10 pounds (yellow edge)
Size Infant 4x6x4 or 4x8x4 – Fits 7-15 pounds (blue or green edge)
Size Regular 4x6x4 – Fits 15-30 pounds (white edge)
Size Premium 4x8x4 – 15-30 pounds (blue edge)
Size Toddler 4x8x4 – Fits 30-45 pounds (green edge)
I was given these prefolds in both the Premium and Toddler Sizes to review.
Premium Size – 20.5x13.5 inches washed (blue edge)
Toddler Size – 21.5x15.5 inches washed (green edge)
Price Per Prefold: ★★★★☆ The price per dozen is approximately $30 for the premium size and $39 for the Toddler size. This makes the price per prefold $2.50 and $3.25. Most places offer deals that the more you buy, the more you save. So as you buy a larger total of prefolds, the price per prefold goes down.
You can see the size difference between the Premium size and the Toddler size.
Absorbency: ★★★★☆ OsoCozy warns that it may take a few washes for the prefolds to gain absorbency, but I did notice that it took longer for these prefolds to gain absorbency. Even so, over the weeks that I have been using these prefolds, the bleached prefolds just do not seem as absorbent as the unbleached. This prefold is still very absorbent, but I do see a difference between the bleached and the unbleached.
The blue/green stitching to differentiate between the sizes.
Ease of Use: ★★★★☆ As with most prefolds, these come with a learning curve. If you trifold them into a cover, each cover is a different size and you may have to fold differently to fit each cover. The Premium size is great for during the day and for naps because it is a little smaller and more trim than the toddler size. I used the toddler size mostly for naps (when I knew it would be a long nap) and at night as it is larger, can absorb more, and is bulkier. On my skinny 24 pound daughter, I did prefer the premium size. However, I love that OsoCozy has made a toddler size for larger children. Many other kinds of diapers only fit until 30-40 pounds. The toddler size prefold is designed to fit up to 45 pounds. This is great for larger kids and for kids that do not potty train as early as others.
