Re: Flats vs prefolds

1. Cheap. Getting back to CD'ing to save money.

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.

They are cheaper, wash and dry sooo much easier and they are more trim than any prefold I have tried. I DESPISE stuffing pockets but I like folding flats
ALL THIS!!!! AGREE COMPLETELY
