Best flats, and why?

And I'm talking flats you can actually FIND for purchase. Tell me your faves and why. Also, are they a perfect square?

My favorites are imse vimse and gmd, the imse vimse are square, the gmd are not. I like them cause they are very absorbent and I got both in organic so no chemicals

Re: Best flats, and why?

I have osocozy, diaper rite large and imagine bamboo and the osocozy are my favorites. Because they wash and line dry the nicest. My dr and imagines edges are all stretchy and wonky but the osocozy ones are still straight and fold super nice. The osocozy is the smallest out of the three. None of the three are square and they all have turned and hemmed edges.

Diaper Rite Large Unbleached are perfect on my Toddler, and the Small Unbleached worked great on my newborn. They are very absorbent and soft.

Re: Best flats, and why?

I have

LL- only available used. You can buy mine if you want I have 13. They are not square. Size wise they are medium I think.

Diaper rite- not square cannot tell them apart from my Osocozy

Imagine- cheapest, smallest, and softest except for my gerber. not square

Osocozy-look and feel just like my diaper rite. Not square.

Gerber-smallest of them all, softest of them all. I typically use pad folded to add absorbancy to my other flats. I have however pinned them on my 33" 28lb toddler. I did need 3 total though. Not square

Hemp baby- my most expensive and the ones I like the least. They are by far my roughest flats. They developed holes within the first month. I have a stash of around 200 flats so it isn't like thy got a lot of use. I have considered pitching them but at $7.50 each I hesitate. Not square.


Receiving blankets- best for toddlers, cheap, locally available, cute prints, square, soft, absorbent, durable. Quality depends on brand.

If I had them to buy again I think I would do imagine for smaller sizes and receiving blankets for toddlers. I also wouldn't bother with the hemp flats. They were so totally not worth it.'$30 down the drain.
