Does anyone use flats at night?

I'm really wanting to streamline my stash and since I use flats during the day I'd LOVE it if I could use them at night too, maybe doubled or tripled or something? Then everything would dry in the same amount of time, and my life would be easier

Has anyone tried using flats at night for an older toddler? He's 21 months and about 26 lbs. Are there any flats out there that would be absorbent enough for nighttime? I don't mind buying 2 or 3 pricier flats just to use at night.

Thanks

Re: Does anyone use flats at night?

I have a 31 lb, 22 month old. A few times his overnight pockets have been in the wash at bedtime, and I've doubled Osocozy bleached flats (1 padfolded inside a kite fold) with a fleece liner to protect his skin and underneath a wooleybottoms soaker. It lasted 12 hrs, despite the fact he nurses a lot at night.

Padfold or origami laid into a kite or neat fold if they are both large flats it should work great. I love my large GMD flats!

Doubled up they could be ok, I had a heavy wetting toddler tummy sleeper and I folded a flat around a pad folded flat with a doubler in the front. Worked great!

I use 2 padfolded gerber flats inside a pinned imagine flat under woolies. It works great for us. If needed I could even add another gerber flat. We just don't need another one.

I padfold a flour sack towel with 2 Gerber flats for overnight. It works great, and I never have to worry about ammonia buildup

So y'all are actually using Gerber flats?? I've already heard bad things about Gerber stuff for actual diapering, is that just the Gerber prefolds? Are they flats actually good quality?

I did during the flats and handwashing challenge. I would do the kite fold with a padfolded flat inside and it worked fine. DD was about 7 months old.
