Best flats?

Okay, I'm curious now about trying flats. What are the best flats? Are cottonbabies ones good?

Re: Best flats?

I have not personally tried the CB ones, but the best I've found are GMD's cloth-eez flats and Diaper junction's Diaper rite flats. I own some of both, and they are both really great quality. GMD's are a touch softer, but bunch up a bit more because of it. I actually prefer the diaper rite's for padfolding as they hold shape a bit better.

no. I hear cottonbabies & nickis diapers brands are both awful. I have diaper rite from diaperjunction and I like them plus they are reasonably priced. osocozy has good reviews too.

Re: Best flats?

I love flats. I have ikea flats, which aren't super absorbent but they do the job and are very reasonably priced. I also have Blueberry cotton flats and ODC bamboo terry flats. I like them all. The bamboo terry flats are super stretchy and absorbent and lovely.

Re: Best flats?

i just bought flour sack towels to compare to my much loved large diaper rites. they are about same size. at first, DR flats def have more absorbing power but maybe the FS towels will become more so after more use. either way, i like them both padfolded in my kawaii's with front tuck flap and non-slip inside.

I love my Little Lions, but I think they aren't made anymore?

We have Diaper Rite bleached and unbleached. They're super soft and really absorbent

Blueberry bamboo flats are pricey but they knock my socks off.

I don't think fst towels are ever as absorbent. I don't use mine as diapers, though, I only use them in the kitchen. But after years of use, absorbency isn't their strong suit.
