Sweet Iris Flats on a newborn

I started reading the rave for SI thread and it's quite overwhelming. For the mamas that have used SI flats on a newborn- what did you prefer? the small or the half flat? On the thread I mentioned above everyone seems to love the half flat but is that for a brand new newborn? If youve used them share your experience and pics if you'd like.

I will bump the thread from Holocene she just had her little girl a bit ago and loved the half flats so much she paid a crazy price to get even more.
Honestly when they are folded in half they are a good size for common prefold folds for bigger babies. And from the square of folding in half you can do the best or kite fold and end up with a nice small newborn diaper too. I'll be using mine on my girl due in two months.

Yes I'd read her thread too (with pics!). So- are any mamas using the smalls?!

Re: Sweet Iris Flats on a newborn

Good point! I'm about to pm halocene to see if she can take a pic of a padfold size next to a padfolded preemie or NB GMD pf or even a GMD flat. Do you have any of these combos? I'm thinking padfold the long edge in 3 then the short edge in 4 for 12 layers (assuming I calculated correctly).

I have gmd nb prefolds. Yellow prefolds. And I think I've got some smalls too. I can snap some pics and email them (easier on my phone than sending on here) if you'd like.

Great! To clarify- you have the si half flats, the si smalls and GMD NB & GMD yellow? I'll pm you my email address in case it's easier to send pics that way. I was thinking that maybe an SI small folded into a square should work as a "pf" measuring roughly 10x10 which would be smaller than a NB of but with the stretch factor may be just right.

No sorry only have sweet iris in xl and half flat. I thought I had a Gmd small flat but can't find the box with those. I'll email you the half flats compared to the prefolds.
