Product Details

Diaper Service Quality (DSQ) Chinese Prefolds (CPFs) and Indian Prefolds (IPFs) are the most reliable, affordable and popular choice for families choosing to use cloth diapers. These diapers have been 'pre-folded' and sewn into 3 panels of differing thicknesses. We offer only premium prefolds, with outer edges of four layers and inner pad of eight layers, except for our Newborn size, which have two outer layers and six inner layers to better accommodate teeny tiny baby bottoms. These diapers are directly imported from China and Pakistan, manufactured under strict standards ensuring no child labor or harsh working conditions, and they have contrasting color-coded edge stitching. Unlike the prefolds found at your local megamart, these diapers are 100% cotton with no non-absorbent polyester in the padding. They will stand up to years of abuse and be only softer for the wear. This is a product where quality matters, and these are the best you can buy.

Bleached white diapers use a peroxide bleaching process, which means no dioxin. Using hydrogen peroxide rather than bleach, preserves the fiber quality and ensures your diapers will last longer than chlorine bleach counterparts. When your prefolds arrive, they will look rather flat and stiff and large. Do not be alarmed! With prewashing, they will fluff, shrink, and "quilt" up beautifully. We particularly recommend extra hot prewashes and drying for the unbleached diapers to remove the natural waxy coating on the cotton not removed in the bleaching process. 2-5 prewashes is normally what it takes for these diapers to reach maximum absorbency and softness.

A washing tip: During the initial washes, avoid completely filling your washer with soiled diapers. Keeping your load size to a minimum will reduce friction and thereby prevent unwanted pilling. This tip is especially important for natural (unbleached) prefolds as the textile used to create our natural prefolds is a high quality, minimally processed cotton. You may slowly increase your washer load over time. Any pills that do happen to sneak-up on you will eventually release from your diapers with continued use.

Diaper service quality prefolds, such as ours, are wildly popular for there affordability, durability, and great absorbency.  Simply fold into thirds to form a pad.  Place the pad inside of a waterproof cover and wrap around baby.  Your cover will fasten the diaper around your baby, but if you'd like an even more secure and snug fit, we recommend using Snappi diaper fasteners (see photo to right). Basic folding and washing instructions are included with your prefold purchase.  Click here for more detailed folding directions.

I LOVED these. Very absorbent, easy to use, very economical cloth diapering option. I did have some issues also with the width with a small child. I think I would also have ordered it one size up, but I definitely got my money's worth! And they double as burp cloths, clean up rags and as stuffers and doublers. I got the unbleached, hides all diaper stains. These give you the most diaper for your money.  --Lauren 8/09

Most economical and a great starting point for the first-time cloth-diaper user. We use prefolds with a Snappi and Thirsties covers... easy!  --Katie 7/09

I have used prefold cloth diapers since my son was born almost two years ago. I have found that they have saved us incredible amounts of money, they are not that much work, and I feel good about the health and environmental benefits they offer. They are incredibly durable and I plan to use them for all my children to come!  --Nicole 3/09

These diapers are perfect! I use only prefolds with covers (except for a HH's pocket dipe). I have never had a leak! These dipes are super absorbent, easy to care for and very comfy for baby. Plus, they are a great value!  --Kellie 1/09

The only complaint that I have with these diapers is that they are a little too skinny. The length is just great, but the width just does not fit around my baby boy (who is not particularly big). I guess if you have a really skinny baby they would work, otherwise I would suggest ordering one size up so that they fit around his waist. We only used them for a few weeks (because they did not fit), then ordered the bum genius diapers. These also make great burp cloths and cloths for cleaning up messes. They are very soft and absorbent. For the price, they are a great deal (if they fit).  --Becki 6/08

I love these prefolds! They are soft, and the most absorbent prefold I have come across. I have tried all sorts of diapers, but these are my favorite for dependability and affordability. I've even stopped using the microterry inserts and stuff our pockets with these!  - Shannon 3/07

These diapers are so soft and fluffy and incredibly absorbent. I avoided prefolds for a long time thinking they'd be difficult to use or not as good as a fitted diaper. I was so wrong. They are the first diaper I go for at changing time now. They are also very trim and not bulky making them fit nicely under clothing. The only reason I don't rate them a perfect five is not for performance or quality but because the size I bought first wasn't cut wide enough for his pudgy size (two months, almost 13lbs). My son was well within the size recommendation of what I ordered but I could barely fit it around his waist to Snappi (which also a great product, by the way). Aside from that I adore this product and will continue to buy more.  - Karen 1/07

Although these are the only prefolds I've used, I've had NO problems with them at all. No rashes, nothing. I was amazed at how soft they got after the 'required before use' washes!  - Stephanie 1/07

These natural prefolds are incredibly soft! They were ready to use after 4 hot washes. And they only get softer with every wash after that. They absorb really well, although I do have a super soaker newborn daughter so I might have to move her to infants sizes as I have all NB sizes now. But these are hands down the softest and most absorbent prefolds I have ever had. Love them! - Melissa 10/06

These are the best prefolds I have found so far. They are softer and much more absorbent than the other Indian prefolds I have. The price and shipping were also very inexpensive, making these a great buy all around. I will definitely purchase more diapers from Baby Cotton Bottoms! - Erika 7/06

These are the softest and fluffiest prefolds I've found! I started my cloth diapering journey by order 6 from several different companies-- these by far are my favorite, so much so that I've gotten rid of the rest. - Megan 7/06

These are the softest, thickest, and nicest prefolds I have ever used. I bought 18 unbleached toddler prefolds and they are wonderful. Both of my boys slept in them overnight and they were incredibly absorbent. They fluffed up so nicely after I washed and dried them 3 times. These are definitely my new favorite diapers. I can't wait to buy some more! - Heidi 6/06

I had heard that these prefolds might be slightly more ""Indian-like"" than most available Chinese prefolds, which appealed to me. I like the feel of Indian prefolds but the dimensions of Chinese.

These are the great prefolds. Very well-combed cotton (few specks and rough spots). Very soft and trim, yet extremely absorbent.

I have both the regular (4x6x4) and the infant size (4x8x4) and will be buying more of each. - Kvan 6/06

I give a dozen of these (in TODDLER size) to new Moms at their baby shower! Why? Burp cloths! They are the very best. They are so soft against the baby's face, very absorbent because of the multiple folds in the middle strategically placed under the baby's mouth for those lovely spit-ups, and big enough to stay on Mom's and Dad's shoulder while holding the baby. I don't know what I would have done without them for my own 3 daughters. The last 3 recipients of this gift reported to me "out of all the shower gifts the cloth diapers used for burping was the BEST of all!" They may not be cute and they may not get all the oohs and aahs at the baby shower, but they will get the oohs and aahs at home from the Mom & Dad! A million times over. I just ordered another set for another shower I'm going to. I give these with pride and with knowing that it's the most valuable and useful gift that will last years and years and years, even later when they turn into! dust cloths!! Remember toddler size! It makes a difference. Enjoy! - Jane 2/06

I bought the natural in infant size. I really like them. I like natural because I think they last longer than the bleached plus they hide stains. - Jenny 1/06

Compared to the other cloth diapers I have these are softer, the stitching around the edge is not nearly as irritating. The absorbency is superb. The only time my son wets through is when he is wearing some other diaper.

I would recommend the premium diapers to anyone, and the price is the best on the net for the quality. This is a 4X8X4 diaper which can't be beat. - Tracie 10/05
