I would personally hate folding flats in addition to stuffing. I replaced a lot of microfiber terry with the absorbent minky inserts in my FuzziBunz, but it looks like those won't be around much longer. I love them so much, though.

I agree with this. Folding a flat to fit in a pocket does not take too long and for how clean it washes up I don't mind. I'd rather that than constantly stripping/trying to get microfiber clean.

I agree with this. Just another annoying step. I replaced all mine with prefolds. There is still done folding involved, but not nearly as much as a flat, and it's not really any more bulky than microfiber, but way more absorbent and way less smelly!

Thinking of replacing microfiber for prefolds as well, but, do they look bulky?

It's really not much more bulky than the microfiber that it comes with, and since I was having to double stuff the microfiber because my kids wet a lot and very fast, it is maybe even slightly trimmer. I have actually been stuffing with smaller prefolds. I have GMD reds, as well as Imagine dark green (smalls?) and Imagine yellow, and I actually like the fit of the pockets best when they have the dark green imagines in there.

Flats folded using the fold in my sig line work great in pockets!

If you don't like folding, people like Babykicks Joey Bunz hemp and cotton. And I live GMD hemp and cotton doublers but you'd need 2 probably.

That flat fold is what I use too
