Prefolds and Flats
A Prefold nappy is the modern version of the cloth flat. It has been ‘prefolded’ into a rectangle with increased layers of absorbency in the middle section. This is then folded again depending on the child/situation and placed inside an waterproof cover.
Prefold nappies are generally made of cotton or bamboo. They are an economical option, and dry quicker than full nappies made of absorbent fabrics.
