Re: Flats vs prefolds

Why I'm going with flats and covers after trying EVERYTHING else.

1. Cheap. Getting back to CD'ing to save money.
2. Wash super easy. I have soft water. The easier to wash and rinse clean, the better.
3. They are trimmer than prefolds, maybe because they don't quilt up? I always thought a pad-folded prefold seemed bulky, but a pad-folded flat seems much trimmer.
4. They are more customizable. I can fold them to get more layers of absorbency where I need it without completely doubling up like I had to do by folding over a prefold. Also, I don't have to buy multiple sizes like you do with prefolds.

ETA:
5. folding laundry is therapeutic for me. There is something very peaceful about folding flats. The dishes might not be done. But the flats will get folded.
