Never EVER thought I'd like flats... some questions! *added pics

So I got a tye dyed flat from Diaperware, wow! I actually really like it! I just finished snappi'ing it on DD, it fits so trim! She is a light wetter so I don't really worry about the absorbancy, since once folded (origami fold I think it's called?) it has like 4 or 5 layers.

However, the one I have seems to fit small, she's 16mos. Do they come in different sizes? Is there anyone that uses them that can tell me the "best" ones? I'm interested in buying some more (especially to dye!!).

*Here are some pics, Mandy looks like you got yours from the same place I did.

DD was so mad, she turned around and crossed her arms, LOL!! What an attitude!


I re-did it since I thought it looked funky in the first shot:


Now THIS is what I call an "action shot" ... in mid-jump!

Re: Never EVER thought I'd like flats... some questions!

The beauty of flats is that they are great for all sizes. I honestly don't know if anyone makes them smaller, I kind of like the fact that they can be used for multiple sizes (15 months and 3 yo who is not night time PL all the way). Super fast to wash and dry, limited build up if any (unless you're on well water which I used to be, blech).

I love flats too.
Here is a great web site for different folds.

I now have 2 in diapers so I have thought about using flats on both of them. I love how trim they are. I have not played around with it yet since I am still recovering from my c/section but when I am feeling better I will have fun and play around with the different folds and what works for dd and ds.

Your daughter is so cute crossing her arms like that. AW

My flats I got from the last prefold co-op from the diaper pin and it was like 7.50 for one dozen. I aslo have 6 thirsties. They are both great quality. I think they are 27x27.
