Why Choose Prefolds?

Here at Bummis we love all types of cloth nappies – but we especially love our organic cotton prefold nappies. Here’s why!


  • 100% soft and natural, organic fabric against baby’s skin
  • Easy to clean, and quick to dry!
  • Very, very absorbent
  • Less vulnerable to detergent and urine residue
  • Less likely to retain odours
  • Easy investment and big savings over the long-run
  • No stuffing required – easy to fold and place in a nappy cover
  • A great and customizable fit on any baby – simply by folding!
  • Use with any type of nappy cover for even more customizing – change prints and colours, fit and fabric whenever you like
  • Versatile! Use as a diaper, a burp pad, a changing pad, etc. ...and they make great rags when you are finished using them as nappies.
  • VERY durable – plan to use them for more than one baby (and did we mention what great rags they make later on?)
  • Organic cotton IS hands-down the greenest and most sustainable choice in fabrics
  • A tried and true option that is simple and convenient when used with flushable liners and contemporary wraps
