Using receiving blankets (flats) to stuff pockets?!?

I'm seeing this being suggested as an alternative to microfiber?! Is this something new? My baby is 5 months and my next child is 4 so a bit of a gap between them.

If you use receiving blankets to stuff, are they a certain size? Are they trim? Please!! Info!!!

Just the cheep Gerber ones. From Walmart (27x27 maybe??) the hospital ones are waaaay too big. They are pretty trim. I like to do a long fold in half, then in thirds, then fold the rise down. Works great for us!!

Re: Using receiving blankets (flats) to stuff pockets?!?

I don't use receiving blankets, but I used flats and LOVE it! SO trim, no stinkies and I find they are very absorbent! I was using Imagine Organic Flats but switched to Imagine Bamboos a couple weeks ago. I always send pockets stuffed with flats to my IL's house because they tent to wait too long to change DS's diaper and flats don't get compression leaks.
