flat love

So just in the last few weeks I'm seriously loving flats. Anyone else have flat love? Maybe some tips or tricks to get a good tight fit? Also what are your favorite folds for your baby?

Re: flat love

ive been in a serious relationship with flats for a while now i wish i just started off cd'ing with flats rather than trying every kind of dipe! i only padfold them because my babe is too wiggly but when she was younger i loved the origami fold.

eta- i love both of your daughters names!

I very recently found the flat love. It almost makes me want to convert my stash to flats and wool. I think I'll keep my AI2 stash for family to use when watching her, and primarily use flats/bamboo terry prefolds with wool.

I love how they are super soft (using Bamboo Imagines) and wash/dry easily. I also like the simplicity.

Re: flat love

Love flats. I use the diaperbag fold if the flat is big enough (DR larges) or stretchy (bamboo, yum) and usually a jo-fold for smaller ones (Imagine, receiving blankets, fst's).

Love flats! I usually do the neat fold. The best tip I read from someone on here was to position the boingo/snappi/pin closer to the top of the thigh rather than up on the hips for a tighter leg.

I recently found a love for flats too! I really like the diaper bag and airplane folds, as well as padfolding. I'm still working on getting a nice tight fit around the legs. I always roll the legs in after its boingo'd/snappi'd on and I'm going to try the tip about keeping it closer to the thigh - thanks
