sustainablebabyish flats

To the mamas who use these do you like them or are there better flats for a cheaper price? Im debating on getting 4 of these or trying there OBFs.

P.S. Are prefolds better then flats or vice versa?

I loved them until he got very mobile. They are amazingly absorbent but when my Ds started super crawling and pulling up they would gap around the legs when snappied. The med fit perfectly into a Bg 4.0 so now they have been repurposed and the larges are used as traveling changing pads. I loved the med though for almost 6 months. Well worth it. They are a great price for what they are.

I love the Mediums trifolded into a diaper for nighttime -- very squishy and absorbent!

I use the mediums trifolded in a GroVia cover. I love them.

Re: sustainablebabyish flats

The larges are really large. My two year old carries it around like a blanket. The mediums are a little smaller than a red GMD.

Re: sustainablebabyish flats

I cannot justify having 24 sbish flats. I have half and half and love them for different reasons. The GMDs clean up easily, are very soft, and are reasonably priced. The sbish are squishy and pretty, but they can be difficult to keep clean and they are tempermental about how they are dried to stay silky soft.

Hmm so i probably should try both? Do you line dry or heat the sbish to keep them soft? I guess same question for gmds as well. Thanks

FTR: Sbish flats are really prefolds. Just in case you're trying to compare them to other flats...
