Question HELP! I think I want to switch to FLATS :)

I think that I want to make the switch to mostly flats, but I am lost! I am really wanting a more trim diaper  What are some good brands, and where can I get them? Will I need the smalls, larges, or both? What are some good folds? TIA

I have always been a fan of the OsoCozy unbleached flats. How old are/is your baby/babies and are they heavy wetters.

I am a GMD large flats fan. Smaller babies would do better in smalls though.

How big is your LO? If under 15 pounds I'd say for sure smalls. If over 20 pounds larges then larges. The between pounds you could probably still do smalls if you want a trimmer fit. My favorite fold is the kite fold fir fastening by I usually just padfold and lay it in a cover. Some good brands are GMD, Diaperite, Imagine, OsoCozy, and Swaddlebees. OsoCozy are a small size and Swaddlebees are Med/large size and the other brands have either small or large to choose from
I love flats!

I would go with a larger size flat in that case.

Does OsoCozy make a larger flat?

Do you want to use the flats as lay-in diapers under a cover, or fold them into a diaper shape under a cover?

OsoCozy doesn't make a larger flat. If you just want to lay them in covers than you can get away with smaller flats like this. I used these flats on my daughter until she was 3, I did need a doubler with them if I was doing anything other than the pad fold. They were great for daytime.
