Flats vs prefolds

Postby rleash » Fri Mar 25, 2011 5:38 pm

I'm just curious what the advantage is of flats over prefolds.

Flats you have to fold them into layers to make them work. Prefolds are a little easier to go on while they are sized (unlike flats) They have all the layers all ready to go for you and all you have to do is get them in the fold that works for the LO.

I never found the love for prefolds, but flats was more overwhelming for me.

I would say flats are a little more tricky to use but are inexpensive and more trim. Prefolds are just easier to use.

Buy a few of both and try them...you may be surprised to find you actually like them both :D

I think flats are more versatile.
