Flip organic "flat" question

So...the new "flat" Flip organics-- can you use them like a flat, and not just a pad-fold in a cover? They seem so soft and absorbent, just wondering...

Like pin/snappi/boingo them? I think they are not square enough for that.

Re: Flip organic "flat" question

if the baby is small enough, you could maybe use it as a prefold if you folded it to size. They are 16x28, so folding in half like a book you would get a 14x16 which is about the prefold size for 15-30lbs.

You could also probably fold the length up to the midway point to get about an extra large fit. Fold 3/4 of the way up in length, then fold the new bottom up to the same place, then fold in 2-3 inches on either side a newborn fit. I think. I'd need to have one on hand, but basically, you can make them into sizeable prefolds for NB through XL but not use it like an actual flat.

My DD is 14.5 lbs & I can do a modified airplane fold & a prefold fold with angel wings. I love the Flip flats.

Great to know! I use flour sack towels as flats when we travel right now. But they get so bunched up so poop gets on the cover, and I have to double up for 21 mo DD. I read that these have some stretch since they're knit. How do you think drying time compares to a regular flat?

Yes I have folded it in half and then used it like an angel wing prefold and it works great!

Here is a pic on my 9 month old. The back is folded down a couple inches to make the rise short enough.
