Is there a Flat or Prefold same material as oBGEs?

This may be a dumb question, but I love how soft the organic cotton is on the inside of my old style BG Elementals. Is there a flat or prefold available that is the same type of material?

Thanks.

I was wondering about those. I wasn't sure if they are the same material as the BGEs as it's hard to tell from the descriptions ont he CB website.

Just beware that they can't really be used as a prefold or flat. Better for pad folding. But they so feel soooo nice!

Both the organic daytime and nighttime inserts feel like the same material as the BGE (I have all three). They're different in flexibility based on how the layers are stitched together.

Thanks! Is there a huge difference between the overnight & daytime? Are the daytime ones absorbent enough for a toddler? Dd is 1, but not a heavy wetter. The old style BGEs seem to be about the perfect absorbency that we need for day use. Anyone know if either organic flips are similar in absorbency to the old BGEs? I know the overnights are thicker, but wondering if the day times would be sufficient for a toddler when pad folded in a pocket or cover.

Brown Cow Cotton on Etsy I think are close. They are a true flat also. She is on vacation now, but should come back soon.

For us the overnights would be major overkill during the day and I prefer to go without the added bulk. They daytime inserts are basically done with one huge toddler pee BUT my son often holds his urine for hours and hours and hours (his record was 10). They daytimes do tend to bunch a little in a cover when they're very wet, but to some degree this depends on the cover. Grovia covers decrease the bunching a bit thanks to the mesh (and makes for an extremely trim combo) but I've heard that they slide around a lot and leave PUL exposed in Flip covers.
