muslin flats?

I've seen these used for burp rags here in Germany. But, has anyone used them for diapers?

No, but I usually end up using this 80x80cm size 'Mullwindel' as boosters.

I bet the muslin flats dry quick!

Any particular brand? Or are they all the same?

We use muslin flats for DS. They are packaged as diapers though, I don't know if that makes a difference. They are great for drying quickly even in rainy season!

Mine are from the store Kik, and they were about 3 for 3.99 euro. i do not know the brand anymore. They probably are good on a newborn but maybe not absorbent enough for an older baby.

Re: muslin flats?

I guess that's what I used for my newborn. Great with an origami fold or kite fold and a snappi for day use. They don't hold a lot of liquid, but I was going for changing immediately after every pee and needed cheap and easy to wash. I also like that he could wiggle a bit more than when wearing a fitted that was still too big. I now use the flats for burp rags and in a pinch, inserts for my pockets.

Re: muslin flats?

Yeah, Mullwindeln are what I have. They shrank a lot more than I thought they would but they are very soft. They seem absorbent enough. Dd is only 4 months old. I just was debating buying any more. I don't know if they would be worth it in the long run.
