Another old skool challenge?

Anyone up for an all flats challenge? All flats, all the time? (Except nights...you can keep your trusty night diapers)
We haven't done one in a long time!
I can't remember how long we did it for...a week? A month? I really don't remember.

update:

Ok so according to the previous threads, it was all flats & prefolds all the time except for nights. I think stuffing in pockets would be alright if it is needed...it's really no different than pad folding in a cover. We need to set a time limit. How about until February 1st???


Ok here we go! Now through February 1!

We used to set a certain amount of time and just use flats. We could use our usual night diapers though. A lot of people work hard to get that just right and we don't want to mess that up. We keep up with what flats and folds we are using..,it's fun.

Re: Flats Challenge anyone?

Hehe, I pretty much always only use flats. Maybe I could do the challenge but actually use different folds instead of padfolding.

Re: Flats Challenge anyone?

I'm in but I only have enough flats to do it for one of my kiddos. So flats with wool and PUL is ok, yes?

Re: Flats Challenge anyone?

DDL has hosted the flats & handwashing challenge for a week during May for the past 2 years... but I've seen fun threads like this crop up periodically too. This might be a good warm-up to get ready for the handwashing challenge! ;-)

Re: Flats Challenge anyone?

I'm in! Loving my new flats, although I wish I had the large GMDs instead of the small. I also have tons of receiving blanket flats...cost more per diaper but cute! I figure they're still cheaper than a print fitted or pocket. I also got some flour sack flats from Target today just to try out. Good doubler if nothing else

That seems fun enough. I wanted to try flats because I hear they are easy to wash and can be hand washed if need be. For like going on trips and such.
