I like the ease of prefolds but love the trimness of flats, I use them both equally

Re: prefolds & flats

I like the ease of prefolds, but I like the "customizability" (is that a word?) of flats. I don't like folding, so I found my favorite fold and stitched the ends together so there is less folding out of the dryer. I just use flats for pocket inserts.

Re: prefolds & flats

I prefer flats, they are trimmer, dry faster, and they are more onesize fits all.

I prefer prefolds. I trifold preemie or econobum pfs in flip and econobum covers or snappi premium pfs under MEAF covers.

I have done flour sac flats and receiving blankets as flats, and I appreciate that you can cd on such a small budget, but I prefer the ease of pf when it comes to prep/changes

I think I am the only person here that does NOT like prefolds.

I prefer flats.

I prefer PFs... I think they are more absorbent and definitely quicker and easier for me to use on my LO.
