My 1st Flats!

So after trying pretty much every style out there, I've bought my first flats! I got the Swaddlebees unbleached Cotton. I washed them twice, how many times to get them good and prepped? I prepped PFs once over 3 years ago...I'm forgetting how many washes I did and I thought flats might not need as many since it's one layer. So how do you/did you prep flats?

ETA: That is them in my profile pic.

I just did. Cold rinse then two hot wash and dry cycles.... But mine were bleached. I'd maybe do one more hot wash and dry if time permits.

I bet they're pretty much good to go. I can't remember how many washes I did for mine, but I think 2 or 3 sounds right.

He took a rather long nap in the very first one I put on him yesterday and it was only about half wet! Worked great!!
