Fluffy Fridays- OsoCozy Prefold Review and Giveaway! CLOSED





For today's Fluffy Fridays segment we will be talking about prefolds. Prefolds are a diaper that you fold up to fit your baby. Prefolds are used with a diaper fastener (such as a Snappi or traditional diaper pins), and a cover for waterproofness. 

OsoCozy has several kinds of prefolds. We were sent bleached infant prefolds, and unbleached toddler prefolds to try out and review.

The infant prefolds that we received are the PERFECT size for Annabelle. We have been using them for a little over a month, and I love them. When we first started using them she was about 12.5lbs, and now she is 15lbs, and they still fit her well.

If you have never used a prefold before, it is interesting when you get them brand new. They come all nice and flat, but once you wash and dry them they get a quilted texture to them.
see how they wrinkle up?
Interesting, right? Well this quilting helps them become thicker and more absorbent. 
 I personally think that prefolds are one of the most absorbent diapers that you can get, and definitely one of the most economical. 

Here is Annabelle in her OsoCozy infant prefold:

 

OsoCozy's prefolds are made up of two sets of 4 layers of material, that are overlapped in the middle (so that means 8 layers in the middle). This creates an awesome layer of absorbency right where it is needed.

Here is Nolyn is his toddler sized, unbleached, OsoCozy prefolds:


The toddler sized prefolds are pretty big, and I know Nolyn will get a lot of use out of these since I am pretty sure they will fit him all the way until he is potty trained. 

Another thing I love about prefolds is that you can fold them many ways. You just try out the different folding techniques until you find one that works well for you and your child.

Overview from my point of view:

Brand: OsoCozy
Price:  $12-$20/ dozen (price varies depending on retailer and type)
Type: Prefold
Fluff Factor: Moderately fluffy- can be bulky if wrong size.
Containment: Very good absorbency, "explosion" containment depends on fold and cover.
Ease of use: B prefolds take some practice.
Drying Time: Decent, a little longer than inserts, but not as long as AIOs

So, ready to try prefolds? OsoCozy can be purchased at these retailers.

In order to complete the review I received free products from the company. I received no monetary compensation for this post and my opinions are entirely my own. You may or may not have the same experience as I did with this product.
