Boosters add extra absorbency to your diaper. Some of our boosters are a mixture of hemp/bamboo, therefore it is important to layer them inside the cotton prefold. Hemp material is slower to absorb, if you are laying it against baby's skin the urine might not absorb. If you layer hemp in-between cotton, the cotton absorbs, then the moisture sinks into the hemp material. Boosters are good to use for overnights/ long car rides/ or longer naps. Your can tri-fold the prefold over the booster, then lay it into the diaper cover.
If baby is getting too big, and the snappi is getting tight- you can use the same tri-fold as the above photo. You tri-fold the prefold, and lay it into the diaper cover.
When should I move to the toddler size prefolds?
Toddler size prefolds fit from 20 pounds +. You can fold down the top of them, then trifold into the diaper cover. If you child is currently 6months and up... and is going through 65+ diapers a week, then you should look at moving up in size. Going to the toddler size will also increase absorbency as there is more material, then in the infant prefold.
How many diapers should I expect to go through?
Newborn 10-14 diapers a day
2-6 months 8-10 per day
6months-12 months 6-8 per day
1 year plus 4-6 per day
