That's what I've got now and it's working great! I have to wash every other day, but I would anyway. It would be nice to have 3 dozen of each, but 2 works.

Thanks for posting this. The Orange Diaper Co flats looked interesting, so I checked out the site. Is the price on the site ($10.95 for infant size) for just one flat or is it sold by the dozen? Half dozen maybe?

Also, anyone tried DR flats?

I love my 6 SB (Orange Diaper Co) flats. The price is per diaper though. I found mine FSOT and would love more. They are way more absorbent than my IKEA flats and I love the little bit of stretch they have.

Poo! That's what I thought... Would love to try it, but I can't afford - literally - to fall in love with those flats. I guess the bamboo would be more expensive than cotton...

i got my hands on older cotton babies bleached flats EGYPTIAN COTTON! wow, they feel soo nice, size small so i just use them as doublers. they are sewn on all sides, perfect square, so great for cute folds on a newborn/small baby, love that the edges stay flat! otherwise, love my unbleached osocozy smalls.

i bought 2 dz small flats, mostly second hand cotton babies and osocozy, and still use them for my 20 lbs LO but usually with a hemp/bamboo doubler in a flip/bummis cover - love how trim it is!

i have one large osocozy flat that i can 'fold' into a diaper and snappi - debating whether to get more...

I'm only 3 months in to this whole cloth diapering thing and love my prefolds.  Flat diapers look really scary to me and all of the folding seems like just another step when it's time to change a diaper.  

Do you all fold the diapers before so they are ready?

What's the benefit of flats?  People really seem to love them, so I must be missing something.  Fill me in!

So are the old Scuttlebutts and the new Orange Diaper Co. ones exactly the same? And is there any significant benefits for getting bamboo?

I have really been liking my Diaper Rites, but can't get over the cuteness of printed flats from ikea and Swaddlebees.

I would love to know what each of the abbreviations stands for. I really want some bamboo jersey ones but they're very expensive. All I have are 5 Gerber flats and they're quite small. Some of them are getting worn out too.

It would be great to add some of the newer flats to this comparison, like Imagine (cotton and bamboo) and Blueberry (cotton and bamboo)!

I have only one size flat - the large (about 32 x 32 before shrinkage), and use it in the "kite fold" for my 41 month old daughter. CDing is new to us - until Thanksgiving, I used disposables. Switched to the cloth flats out of desparation, when the disposables were always leaking, and it became apparent that potty training was not going to happen anytime in the near future.
We use a second flat which we padfold as an insert.

The large flat fits my daughter fine now, and should fit for a long time to come.

From what I've read, though, the large flat may be much too much diaper for a newborn or small infant. I started using them in January, after I decided that regular prefolds were a tad too small, and the "toddler" prefolds were gigantic - so I don't have any pre-toddler experience with the large flats
