I have not tried winged PF's but I tried flats almost 3.5 years ago (about 6 months into CDing) and I fell in love with them.

I love that I can fold them into the perfect size/shape for each child. I also like that I can have a more triangle fold with nice long wings to wrap around baby. I had a tough time with PF's because I had round babies

IMO receiving blankets work, but real flats work so much better. I tried out receiving blankets when my flats were on order but when I got my flats I finally "got it" I have been using the same flats that I ordered 3.5 years ago and they are going strong. My sister also fell in love with flats and set all her PF's aside. The Nappy Lady has great info and folding instructions.

The only winged PFs I've used are Megaroos ETPFs. I loved them! Once DS was mobile though I gave up on PFs. But I'm thinking I might need some for the newbie!

I like flats over winger pf'ds. Easier to get on the baby and IMO just as absorbent. (And cheaper)

I made some faux Megaroos for Chloe when she was little. They were much more flexible than a standard prefold for fastening. Because they're made in knit fabrics, you get a nice, tight fit and the wings increase the range. Despite how great they are/seem, however, I just never really reached for them.

I have some Megaroos extended tab prefolds. They're nice in concept but really hard to snappi so we don't use them much. I think the'd be awesome if I could pin.

My favorite thing for a 4mo is a origami folded GMD flat (size small/or large depending on where we're going or what we're doing). There is nothing that holds the poo in better, or fits their wee little bunz better than that. For some reason I've always been able to get the legs tighter on flats than on PFs too. I do like PFs though, especially for my DH or if I just want to pad fold. I'd say get a dozen on each and call it happiness.
