Re: Flats vs prefolds
I bought the GMD flats because otherwise we spend so much on our electric bill from running our ancient dryer so much. We could hang diapers to dry but then we'd have to spend more on diapers to have enough to use while the ones we washed were drying, because the longer drying time would mean we'd need more diapers to last that long. With flats we can padfold and still have ease of use in pockets and covers, they are one size so no need to buy a ton of different sizes, and they come clean easily and use less energy. We have soft water too so the ease of washing is key.
