Half size flats

Instead of doublers I've been using half size flats from GMD folded so they are the size of a doubler and add six layers of absorbency. I love that they open up to one layer in the wash for easy cleaning and fast drying compared to a sewn doubler. Does anyone else use the half flats like this? I never see or hear anything about the half flats but I'm so impressed with them for use as doublers. A pad folded normal size flat would just be too huge on my baby as a doubler but the halfs are perfect.

Re: Half size flats

Hi I love gmd and have heard a little bit about half flats. Could you post a picture to compare the difference in bulkiness if you are still using these for doublers? I also just realized Karen probably has some on a baby pictures on the site. I might be interested in trying this. I HATE how HUGE a pad folded flat as a doubler is.

Re: Half size flats

Ive doubled with them too after my DD started outwetting them. they are excellent and when she was super teeny my DH would reach for them (prefolded for him of course) before any others! Unfortunately ive only been using them as doublers with prefolds, but i cant wait to try them added to normal sized flats because ive seen pictures that make them look really sweet.
