*Action shots*Mamas that use/have tried the IKEA burp cloths as flats-a few questions

***I got them and added action shots on page 2! They are so cute!***

I will be going by the IKEA today and am interested in their burp cloths to use as flats.
Before I get them I was curious about the absorbency compared to LL, GMD, or Osocozy flats. I have a pretty heavy wetter but those contain his pee as long as I change soon after he wets.
Also, are they snappiable?
Anything else you think I should know about them?

Thanks ladies!

I have some I like them. I use a thin hemp liner in mine just like I do with my osocozy flats. They make it just as long as the osocozy do imo.

I was wondering about these as well, thinking about having someone pick some up for me from CA before they come here to visit. We aren't getting our IKEA until fall 2011 :P and it is still going to be an hour away! I was spoiled living in L.A. and having 4 within about a 30 minute drive :P

I looked for them at my Ikea and couldn't find 'em. Where are they? Or does mine just not carry them?

Oh no, I hope mine has them! It wouldn't be nice to drag all 5 kids though there and then not get what I went in for! I think I'll call before I get there!

i have some - they are nice at first but dont hold up over time as well as my gmd's. i would buy some for fun, or to try flats before buying a bunch, but i wouldnt recommend more than that. they are cute, but they are also smaller than the standard LL and GMD size.
