Brought to you by Regal Lager, who has brought us great products like the Diaper Dekor, this award winning cotton diaper system from Europe is a modern version of the original prefold system. Prefolds are a more affordable option compared to disposal or all-in-one diapers and these provide an updated alternative for moms who choose to use prefolds. No soaking, pins or rubber pants like days of old.
The first thing I noticed about the diaper covers were how lightweight they were and the deep leg gussets. These gussets are deep enough to have good leak protection and literally cradle the prefold so it doesn’t shift. These gussets are perfect for putting the diaper on with a simple “newspaper fold” (folded in thirds), because you don’t even need to use snappi. The prefolds come in 2 sizes and can be folded to accommodate your girl or boy and size of your baby. This is economical because only 2 sizes are necessary to get your baby through their diapering years.
I highly recommend the flushable diaper liners which can be throw away when wet and flushed with solids. These make the prefold system a breeze and help keep baby‘s bottom dryer than the prefold alone. Another accessory of note is their new miofresh, with is a unique, environmentally friendly, biodegradable diaper cleanser.
Remember not all detergents that are safe for diapers disinfect your diapers, and miofresh is antibacterial and deodorizes the diapers during the wash cycle eliminating the need for a hot water wash or soaking!
Overall Rating: 9
The only thing I would want with this prefold diapering system would be a snap closure option for the covers. All in all, they are the most user-friendly prefold system I have used and have great protection.
Overall Fit: 8.5
The only negative would be that they are a little bulkier than an AIO diaper, but an awesome choice I would recommend to any family going the prefolds route or wanting a new cover.
Weight/Size Range and chart:
Durability: 8 (Cover), 10 (Prefold)
Prefolds are as durable as you can get! The covers seem durable, but will need to be replaced over the years since they do use a laminated PUL like other diaper covers.
Pocket Opening: None
Hugs waist and back well without leaving dents or red marks. These covers are soft yet have a secure fit!
Deep leg gussets allow an adjustable fit for different shapes and sizes. Hugs thighs softly, but securely to prevent leaks.
Deep, contain leaks and cradle the prefold in place
Covers retail for about $14.95
Prefolds are sold in sets of 6 (size 2) and 8 (size 1) and cost around $34.95. My recommendation would be to try one of their Trial Packs (1 cover, 1 prefold and 1 mioliner) to see if you like this system and purchase a birth to potty or larger set to save the most money.

Bambino Mio is just making it’s debut in the U.S. and will have store listings on their website shortly. In the meantime I’d recommend using the search engine Pebble.com to find an online retailer that carried their products. I tried a search and there are a handful of sites that carry some of Bambino Mio’s products.
