Versatile and popular!
Better Fit (Tri-folding) prefolds tucked into a diaper cover make cloth diapering so easy. No extra twists or folding. No pins or fasteners needed. Just tuck, wrap, and done. OsoCozy Better Fit prefolds make this popular style of cloth diapering very easy. Add diaper covers for the complete cloth diapering system.
Better Fit prefolds are sized to tuck inside a diaper cover without folding the diaper lengthwise, as required for standard, Traditional (long) prefolds. Better Fit are 2.5 " shorter in the Infant size and 5-6 " shorter in the Regular or Premium than Traditional fit prefolds. This less bulky and easier to use prefold style first appeared in about 2008 and grew more popular in the years to follow. Based on what we sell about 1 in 3 prefold buyers choose Better-Fit instead of Traditional.
Made with soft, durable unbleached Indian cotton gauze. These prefolds quilt or fluff up nicely with the first wash. These cloth diapers are thick, very absorbent, and lint free.
OsoCozy Prefolds are 100% Cotton - Unlike prefolds from more recognized national children's clothing brands which use a synthetic polyester filling between just two layers of cotton. Our diapers are a better value as they are thicker and more absorbent. Additionally, there is often an ammonia odor buildup in synthetics which you won't get in cotton diapers.
Two Basic Sizes - We offer three sizes in the better-fit prefolds but most families need just two sizes. Those two sizes are the Infant 4x8x4 for 6-16 lbs and the Premium 4x8x4 for 14-30 lbs. Don't be fooled by "One-Size" prefolds which will be bulky on newborns and have insufficient absorbency on larger babies.
Prep diapers before using. Unbleached prefold cloth diapers must be washed and dried on hot at least 2-3 times after you receive them before they become absorbent. Test absorbency by making a pocket or bowl of the diaper and slowly pouring in 1/2 cup of water. If the water pools rather than soaking in quickly, keep washing. DO NOT use fabric softener, which would coat the fibers and cause repelling. Despite the added effort necessary to break in these diapers, they are extremely popular and by most accounts well worth it.

Traditional Fit prefold cloth diapers can be secured to baby with diaper pins or fasteners, or they can be placed in diaper cover and trifolded (sides folded over the middle) with the extra length then folded over in front or back for additional absorbency. See the first two images below. Fold these diapers many additional ways, such as the angel wing fold, the bikini twist, and others. These versatile workhorses have been the standard since prefold diapers replaced flat diapers in the late 1960s.
