Bamboo inserts, flats, or prefolds in a pocket?
I'm wanting to replace all my MF inserts for my pocket diapers with bamboo. I'm also going to start trying flats/prefolds with a cover at home (pockets would be for daycare).

I'm wondering what inserts/flats/prefolds might work best for my pocket diapers. I measured the width of the ones I am replacing and they are about 5" wide. On the medium rise settings (which my son is currently at as a 4month old), it'll need to be about 13" long.

Any suggestions?

So far, from seeing what other folks have posted, I'm going to look into
Alva baby 3 layer bamboo inserts
Imagine Bamboo Flat
Grovia Bamboo Prefold (what size?)

I'm leaning toward flats/prefolds because I'm planning on using trifold/padfold and covers at home.
Also, I'm looking for the trimmest possible solution! Thanks a bunch!

I have Bg 4.0 pockets in the medium rise and love the size 2 grovia bamboo prefolds!

I just ordered the bamboo flats for this very reason and felt they would be the most versatile and inexpensive. The Grovia prefolds are definitely soft though! I just or a free one with my Kissed by the Moon order and was amazed by the softness!

I say flats.

Flats will be more versatile & trimer. We use small or medium imagine bamboo prefolds inside pockets on the middle snap rise. Work great too.

So from a trimmness standpoint, pad folded flats would be the trimmest? Then bamboo prefolds would be a little bit less trim?
Would a pad folded flat still be just as trim once stuffed into a pocket?

Pad folded flats are awesome in pockets.
