Flour sack or Diaper Rite flats?

I'm trying to decide. Money is sort of an issue. I'm adding them to a NB rotation of:


12 NB GMD PF's
12 Unbleached no name PF's (a little bigger than the NB's/smaller than yellow edges)
4 AIO's
6 NB Pockets
6 PUL covers
1 Wool cover
2 snappis


Wondering if Diaper Rite would be better or can I get away with Flour Sack Towels?

Also, is it hard to Snappi a flat because of how thick they are? How many snappis do I need? I want a few more covers too, going to crochet a few more NB woolies and get a few more PUL Thirsties.

I would go with DR. They are really soft and more absorbent than flour sack towels. I always always snappi my flats and I have never had any issue. I only have two snappis and one of them never gets used. The snappi is always on the baby so it never gets lost. I hope that helps.

We use snappis and boingos in our flats. Both work great.

DR flats are softer and more absorbent but I like our FST too. They are TRIM.

Re: Flour sack or Diaper Rite flats?

Flour sacks are just not as absorbent but they are thinner and would be fine for a newbie. But for the long run diaper rite would be a better choice. bUT fs are easy to buy and very cheap so I would get a pack to see if you like them

Re: Flour sack or Diaper Rite flats?

diaper rite is very popular so you cant go wrong. I had 2 snappies and that was just fine. every once in a while I would misplace one but that didnt happen often.
