Are these worth anything?

A friend of mine sent us 12 Gerber Flatfold birdseye cloth diapers. We're not doing prefolds or anything. Mostly pockets. But you know how the outside world views CDing. Anyway...Are these helpful? Can I stuff 'em in my pockets? Or use 'em as burp cloths or something? Do they soak up well? Maybe I'm underestimating them...but I just hear how gerber's not that great on the CD front.

I was given one with flannel down the middle and it makes a good burpcloth. Plus, it's pretty cute.

Re: Are these worth anything?

I've got about a hundred things that I can use for burp cloths. heh. Seems like everyone's like, "What to get? I know! BURP CLOTHS." (You could replace that with receiving blankets and pacifiers too...) I wish they'd send a book or something. That'd be much cooler.

We used them as burp cloths for years with our other children before cding and also used them as a make-shift changing pad for under their bums in a pinch but we now use them in covers as is for a super soaker and we like them.

You can layer like 2 or 3 together and then fold like a trifold and see how it works in a pocket. I have used 2 layered together with a snappi and a cover for short periods and they do fine.

they work great in pockets, but you might find you like them as dipes too. flats are nice and trim. great for glass and other cleaning too.
