Re: The best 100% cotton, trim, size-adjustable absorbant insert (EVEN MORE action pi
yeah, the way its folded over leaves 12 layers of cotton, 18 if you count the little flap folded over to add absorbency where you need it. A prefold would be 4x8x4 = 16 layers. Comparable absorbency but I find flats much trimmer, and folded this way, its size-adjustable ~ a win-win!
