A prefold is a really basic and economical nappy system. A prefold is simply a rectangle of absorbent fabric, folded and placed in a waterproof nappy cover. Petit Lulu prefolds are made from soft bamboo viscose and organic cotton and a layer of super absorbent cotton terry. This makes then soft and comfortable, and absorbent too.
They are simple to use, just fold in three and lay in your reusable nappy wrap. Great teamed up with a Petit Lulu wrap, they will also work with most other wraps too. If you are feeling adventurous, try out some more traditional folds, for greater containment. A Snappi fastener can be used to hold the nappy in place.

Petit Lulu offer lots of choice when it comes to waterproof nappy covers. With standard wraps in a choice of popper or hook and loop closure, pull up covers, and wool covers, there really is something for everyone!
Perfect for using with absorbent fitted nappies, snap-in-one boosters and prefolds. Made from robust PUL with super soft fleece bindings all the way around the edges, these are a super gentle and comfortable nappy wrap.
The pull-up wraps are great for wriggly toddlers. With a wide fleece leg hem and waist band they are so comfortable, contain everything and the fleece prevents wicking onto clothing. These are a top choice for night time pared up with a Maxi Night nappy.
Wool covers have a strong following with experienced cloth nappy users. You may wonder how these work. Thanks to the clever nature of natural lanolised wool, moisture evaporates through this highly breathable layer. The lanolin prevents moisture leaking through the nappy. As a result, these wraps have amazing moisture regulation.
These are wonderfully reliable wraps for heavy wetters, but do require some additional care. You will need to lanolise them when they are new, and then re-lanolised every 4-6 weeks. Lanoline has some fantastic qualities, including being antibacterial and self-cleaning. Simply hang up to dry between each use and washed every couple of weeks. Made from 100% pure Merino wool making these covers super soft on sensitive skin. Most importantly, they form a reliable, antibacterial, odour and water resistant barrier.
If that wasn’t enough, Petit Lulu also have a great range of reusable accessories. These include nappy bags, extra boosters, cloth wipes, breast pads, make-up remover pads, and period pads. All of these great accessories come in fun prints and quality fabrics that you expect. Are you ready to check out the Petit Lulu range?
