Geffen Baby Prefolds Review

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

img_0113Geffen Baby is a Los Angeles-based company that is passionate about their work for babies and the environment. Their products range from cloth diapers to nursing pads. Most of their products–95 percent–are made here in the U.S.A. Their website is super informative and also a great place to shop. (This is dangerous when you’re pregnant and still working on the baby’s cloth diaper stash!) I got the opportunity to try out one of their prefold diapers and tell you what I think. Here’s what I discovered.

Quality

This is by far the softest prefold diaper I have ever touched. When it arrived at my house, it was packaged neatly and beautifully. I was sent a extra-large jersey prefold with navy blue trim. The color of trim is different by size. The age suggestion is 18 months to potty trained. My son, Levi, is 25 months old, so this was perfect. The prefold is made of 60 percent hemp and 40 percent organic cotton. I seriously could touch this thing all day! I can imagine it has to feel amazing to my little guy’s bottom. The prefolds cost $10.30 a piece, which is a reasonable price for the quality.

Experience

Levi is a squirmy, opinionated 2-year-old, so getting this prefold on was not the easiest process. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t video tape the drama, but we did get it on his little bottom. There was plenty of extra fabric. I folded the prefold down in the back and did a newspaper fold with a snappi. I then used a econobum diaper cover. The fit worked well for Levi and it was absorbent for his diapering needs. I can’t say I would use this prefold all of the time, just because he is getting to be past the cloth diapering stage for us. With baby number 3 arriving in a few weeks, I am working on getting him used to the potty. However, I will definitely keep it and use it for the baby.

Overall Opinion

I am not an expert on cloth diapers, but I would definitely give Geffen Baby prefolds two thumbs up. Compared to other prefolds I have used, this prefold is much more absorbent and better quality. I think they are affordable, and the stitching is done well on them. I am definitely going to look into the newborn quick absorbers for my newest squish. They come in a 3 pack and are only $11.07!

So momma, if you are into cloth diapering and like prefolds, I definitely recommend trying Geffen Baby. I’m just warning you, these things are so soft!
