I'd say 27x27.

Yep 27 x 27. It's a touch big on a newborn, but it's still functional for them, and when they're closer to 25 they're a tad small after 4 months (for us).

I don't tend to try to fasten those, they were pad folded into gDiaper covers (size medium or large) or into a Flip this way.

Oooooh. Awesome info! Thanks so much!

Thanks for the tutorial on how to fold it too. Really appreciate that!

But is that 27x27 before or after washing?

Because there are some (like osocozy flats) that are 27x27 inches before washing and they shrink up to be a lot smaller...

bigger than 27x27 AFTER washing.

small flats start at 27x27, then usually shrink to 24x25 (GMD smalls are one of the few exceptions). large flats start 32x32-ish, then shrink to hopefully no smaller than 27 etc.

btw, LOVE my diaper rite flats, 28x30 or so, great for pad folding and easily kitefold/jelly rolled to fit my DD at 10 lbs.
