I first heard about the Meg a Roo’s Extended Tab Prefold on Facebook. There was a lot of chatter about how great they were. I looked them up and decided that they were genius. Why didn’t I think of that? The simple addition of longer tabs at the back of the prefold gives you much more fabric to work with when putting the prefold on the baby. This really gives you a little more wear out of them and make life easier in general. Plus, these prefolds can be purchased in fun prints or colors.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩ For a prefold, these are easy. You can see in my video that it didn’t take very long at all to pull it over my son and secure it. Once the baby gets to prime wriggling stage it might get harder but those tabs will help. Honestly, people think prefolds are hard but it takes less time to snappi these easy prefolds on and put on a velcro cover than it takes to put on some of the snapping pocket diapers.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩ Usually when you hear prefold you expect a very low priced diaper- between 2-6 dollars each. Because these are not mass produced, DSQ, regular plain ol’ prefolds they cost more. They come in designer prints, they are handmade, and they are just a little more special. The infat is 8.00, mid-range is 10, and premium size is 12.
Performance ✩✩✩✩ I loved these prefolds for overnight! They are actually less bulky than many of my fitteds (but bulkier than a pocket or AIO) so they fit a little better under my son’s pajamas. My son is an average wetter and these were absorbent enough for all night without having to add any extra doublers.
Fit ✩✩✩✩ You can choose from 3 sizes. The added tabs give you more width and so you might be able to use your prefold longer than a regular rectangular version. They are bulkier than other diapers and I mostly use them at night but I am not someone who complains about those things.
Overall: There are lots of mamas who love prefolds and choose them above other, fancier diapers. The Meg a Roo’s make prefolds even easier and give you something to look at. I kept telling myself that I could see myself having a stash of these and not minding one bit, and maybe even liking it!
I was sent a Meg a Roo’s Entended Tab prefold for the purpose of this review, no other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own and genuine.
