    Default MCN Question - Prefolds & Toddlers

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if some fellow MCN mums can help me out.

    Our youngest is almost 2. We've found a pattern with the both of our sons that once they reach size L, they pretty much out-wee it in an hour or so. We've tried many different brands and types - AI2 & Pockets (with extra boosting). I'm so tired of leaks.

    We only cloth during the day. I am getting rid of a whole heap of nappies we've not had much luck with and seriously considering prefolds and covers (or even terry flats if I have to!). Did anyone use prefolds with toddlers? How did you find it?

    Thank you.

    Terry towelling flats full time here. Still using the same 3 dozen we bought for DD1 over 4 years ago, though we only use them at night now. In 4+ years of full time use with two kids there's only been a handful of leaks. The folding takes the same amount of time that stuffing in inserts or doing up snaps does.

    We use PUL covers.

    Thanks @GreenMama. Your response fills me with confidence, I'm going to buy prefolds and try them for DS2 until he TT and for #3 too.
