Prefolds or flats?

Is one any better than the other? How difficult are they to get on a wiggly baby? What kind of covers work best? Thanks!

Re: Prefolds or flats?

I like both. I love falts for hte days. They are trimmer but not quite as absorbant as prefolds. I fodl them with instructions form some website i dont remember. I do the kite fold. ( i think that is what it is called) And i use pins on my flats. On my prefolds I use snappis or pins. and any kind of cover. Or non at all in the summer. I love for my baby to air out. Flats also dry a TON quicker than prefolds. and they make good nursing cover ups when all else fails LOL

Re: Prefolds or flats?

I can't help you with a wiggly baby. We use prefolds and flats everyday but it's really getting hard to get them on my wiggle moster 14 month old so I'm putting them aside for now and headed towards pockets.

I like to use 2 flats together. For PUL covers I like Bumkins, Proraps and Bummis. For wool I lOVVE MaiMaiBB on Hyena cart.

I use both on my wiggly 18 month old... I use a lot of distraction techniques LOL I love flats for the quick drying time and I love PF's for the absorbancy...Oh and I pin mine... I had a Snappi snap and now I dont trust them... plus they were harsh on my dipes.

I like prefolds for their absorbancy but flats are so cute!

I've never tried flats, but prefolds we love and once you get the hang of using them a wiggly baby isnt really a issue, you can get the dipes on pretty fast with practice
