Flats in BG 4.0s?

Hello! I'm not loving my microfiber inserts lately and I have heard a lot of talk about using flats as pocket inserts. My son is currently on the highest rise setting. Should I buy small or large flats to use inside of my BG 4.0s? I am thinking Diaper Rite. Also, any cons for those who use flats in their pocket diapers? Thanks!

I use LL flats in mine and love them! DS is 30lbs and 2.5yrs old. They hold great.

I use OsoCozy ones in mine. Flats are definitely trimmer than prefolds in pockets.

Re: Flats in BG 4.0s?

I think they are trimmer but still just as absorbent. I honestly have no cons for flats in pockets. I thought I might eventually but my DD is almost 17 months and we have been using them since she was about 2 months old. We never, ever have leaks and they are super easy to clean. Throw in a couple hemp doublers for nights and it's really reliable.

ETA: We use Osocozy unbleached flats.

I have BG 3.0 one size and use flats to stuff. With the mf I always had leaks and now never do. I use cheap flour sack towels from target. They fit fine if I dry in the dryer. I have to fold over a bit when I line dry.

Re: Flats in BG 4.0s?

definitely trimmer and very absorbant. Flats are the only inserts I put in my pockets. I use large GMD unbleached.

I fold them the long way, then in thirds the long way, then I take the "snake" and fold it to the rise I need then the extra just gets folded over for an extra 6 layers wherever you want it, in the front or back.
