I'd suggest using this method versus they method you're suggesting. If I understand you correctly you are basically making a prefold size but as your LO grows you won't be able to adjust the length. If you sew them the long way you can adjust the length as your baby grows. I did something similar to it. They will quilt a little bit like a prefold but not as much because they are likely so well prepped.


Mom to LO#1 born 1/7/2010 (Cloth diapered since day 1; Part-time EC since 9 months; Daytime PL since 29 months; Nightime PL at 5.5 years) & LO#2 born 12/1/2013 (First diaper was cloth! Part-time EC since 12 months & Daytime PL at 26 months) Checkout my absorbency tests. Thoughts on how long a cloth diaper REALLY lasts. Thoughts on Yeast , here, here, here & here.

I'd choose B. I didn't do a lot of flats, but when I did pockets I preferred to stuff with (usually) an organic cotton and microfiber mix of inserts that I don't believe are made anymore.

That being said, I really don't think that saves all that much time from folding and stuffing. I think any time saved would be minutes a week and that may or may not be enough for you to invest either time or money into sewing the flats or buying new diapers or inserts, on top of hoping everything still works as well. If it were me in your place I'd just find a way to add a few minutes to the day. I have six kids and CDed four out of six including two at once. I totally understand not feeling like you have time to sit and stuff/fold 70 diapers (BTDT!!) but finding a few minutes sounds easier than changing a routine that's working well for you.
