Fitted vs flat (pre-fold) cloth diapers

Our modern fitted cloth diapers are easier to use and better at leak protection than flat (pre-fold) cloth diapers

Flat or pre-fold cloth diapers are essentially cloth sheets that must be skillfully folded and pinned or clipped into certain diaper covers. These diapers are the traditional cloth diapers parents had to use in past. But no more! Modern fitted cloth diapers are a significant advancement in cloth diapering. With elasticized legs and back (just like disposables), fitted cloth diapers are excellent at leak protection since they protect from leg and back blow outs. Our fitted cloth diapers have multiple snap closures which allow you to put a new diaper on or take a soiled diaper off with ease.

Our clients sure like the fitted cloth diapers…

While on vacation, we were using disposables and were definitely not nearly as happy as with using your diapers. I don’t know if it was just the brand we bought, but we were dealing with leaks up the back all the time. Made us really appreciate our decision to go with Wonderwear. Great diapers, great service!  Fred S.  Toronto, Ontario

Natalie had several major “digestive events” this week, and we were AMAZED with how the cloth diapers handled them! Every day, we’re glad we made the choice to use your products!  Allyson B.   Mississauga, Ontario

Here are the main disadvantages of using flat or pre-fold cloth diapers…

  • Flat or pre-fold cloth diapers must be properly folded based on your baby’s body type and gender and must be affixed to certain covers with pins or clips to stay secure (without clips or pins the diaper can shift around with your baby’s movement resulting in leak concerns)
  • Harder to put on a standing or running toddler than fitted cloth diapers
  • No gussets can mean messes if you don’t fold with messes in mind
  • Your skillful fold can move around inside the cover unless you use a Snappi or pins
  • A substitute caregiver can be intimidated by folding
