imagine bamboo flats?

Is anyone using the Imagine bamboo flats for padfolding?

As a last effort to stick with cloth for my toddler, I am thinking about trying flats layed in a cover (I have econobums). are they going to be bulky compared to cotton? more absorbent?

They're super nice for folding and padfolding. They're just as trim as cotton, and much more absorbent. So soft, too! I'm really happy with mine.

I have a dozen and only padfold. I do think they are more absorbent...I find them trimmer than a trifolded prefold, they are great!

Just tried them for my toddler as well. Both more absorbent & softer than plain cotton. Flats slightly trimmer & dry faster

Hard to tell because I have just tried the flats a few times. I'll let you know in a couple days. I know DS can nap in a bamboo prefold. usually naps for 2-3 hours & doesn't want his diaper changed until he is a awake for at least 1/2 hour!
I may try a flat tomorrow. Had one flat In a flip cover today during the morning (his heavier wetting period) and it lasted 2 hours when I changed him. It had a dry spot in the very back so that is good - usually any insert is soaked!

Is that cover unsnapped all of the way, or on the midrise setting?
