I have too many flats, so I'm seriously considering cutting them up and sewing into inserts for when I don't feel like folding. Blasphemy, I know, but I have over 72 flats and only 1 in diapers!

I used to use FuzziBunz minky inserts in my BG 4.0s and really loved how trim it made them!

I could try to sew something, although I'm not great at it. LOL He's been peeing out of a flat/flips combo, so I think I need something a little more than just a flat. I could maybe get some bamboo and try to make some inserts out of that, though. If I can't find anything I love, I may do that! Although, they won't be pretty! LOL

No stink, ever.

I used the newborn inserts that came with my Elites in 4.0s until my dd potty-trained. She never let herself pee in a diaper more than once, so that's all the absorbency she ever needed. I'm not a good person to ask about absorbency; we never had leaks because she was such a diva about being changed immediately and was like that from birth.

But my friend replaced the minky in her Elites with the organic cotton linen inserts because she didn't find the minky absorbent enough for her son.

Thanks...DS can be a heavy wetter, so if I go the FB route, I will get the organic ones.
