Ideal Flat size for newborns?

I am wanting to make some smaller flats for my newborns, I will probably trim down flannel receiving blankets and use the scraps left over for pantyliners. I have some flats that are 27 x 27" and they still look pretty big when folded up for a small baby. I plan on preemies (I am preggo with twins) and I am not worried about them growing out of them fast b/c I can always pad fold them or use them as burp cloths....
Would 20x20 be too small?

Re: Ideal Flat size for newborns?

GMD website says their small flats are 27.5 x 27.5. I would think your 27x 27 might be just perfect, but if it were me I wouldn't do anything with them until the little's arrive and you can actually see/try them. You don't want to regret it later if you already umm... downsized them

I just found 2 flats that I have that are 22 x 22", they are unbleached and have hemmed edges, no idea where I got them, but they look perfect for newbies! I think I may make more this size.....

The 27x27s fit perfectly on my newb folded in the mini-kite fold. And they were so trim. I'd leave them alone.
