Swaddlebees Flats

I like the looks of these, but are they just basically standard receiving blankets or is there a difference in shape/absorbency? I want to try some flats for padfolding, but I'm wondering if there is a difference between flats & cotton receiving blankets?

Re: Swaddlebees Flats

These flats are made of birdseye cotton so they're a different weave than recieving blankets. I really like how durable birdseye is! It's also trimmer

I actually really like the swaddlebees flats. The edges don't curl as bad as my other flats. I do have some receiving blanket flats and they're not as stretchy as the birdseye flats.

Re: Swaddlebees Flats

I'm not sure but I can't find them anywhere except Amazon. I guess because they had that issue with the first batch where the ink smeared a little. ??? Just a guess. I wanted elephants. Not that I need flats. Or use flats. Or even particularly like flats this particular month. LOL.

Mombecks.com has them! It's funny; I JUST ordered the blue set. I had the hardest time deciding between elephants & giraffes. She has free shipping, too, and a discount code SWAPPERS gave me 10% off I think. I'm going to use these to padfold in my covers. I have entirely too much fluff on the way...time to sell some more diapers!
