Old School cloth diapering like our Grandma's used to is still alive and well. In fact, some families prefer it! It's simple, economical, and pretty darn effective.

What types of diapers does Diaper Junction offer that would be Grandma approved?

These ARE your Grandma's Cloth Diapers!

Prefolds and Covers

  • Diaper Rite prefolds! For as low as $1.79 each, you can't go wrong! Perfectly simple and absorbent. Use as a diaper, burp cloth, changing pad, extra insert and more! With out popular Diaper Rite prefolds you CAN make Grandma proud!
  • Diaper Rite Birdseye Flats! Another popular and VERY old school cloth diapering method.

Also unique, they're sewn in a loop which makes them faster to dry. Use with any cover you like or pair them perfectly with a Thirsties cover!
  • Flip Diaper Covers! These are fast becoming one of the most popular diaper covers on the market. First, they're really inexpensive, one-size and effective.

So have you used prefolds and flats yet? I bet you were surprised at just how much you liked them, am I right?

We have used prefolds since day one--and wouldn't do it any other way! The few times I tried an all-in-one or pocket diaper, we had leaks and I just didn't understand the point of all that extra laundry! We've tried Thirsties covers but switched to Flip covers when my daughter was about 6 months old--still using the same covers a year later, they look great!

Love my Diaper Rite prefolds with a Thirsties Duo cover! Been using them since she was a week old. Only use pockets for overnight, and one of them I received FREE from DJ from ordering more prefolds - can't beat that!

My stash is almost completely flats and prefolds. I'm not going to be buying any more prefolds, I'm sticking to flats from here on out. I love them! So easy to use and so many ways to use them! I'm keeping my prefolds, I've been using them more for changing pads and to stuff my pockets. And we have another little one on the way, so I have an excuse to expand our stash! Yay!
