Favorite Things: Flat Diapers

Welcome to the 2013 Favorite Things Giveaway! Each day I will be showcasing one of ten products that have been a favorite for me over the last year! After the last post has been published, a giveaway post will follow! You will have a chance to win a prize package that contains everything from the 2013 Favorite Things Series, valued at over $200! You can see what was up for grabs last year and read about the 2012 Favorite Things here.

Favorite Things No. 1
I fell in love with flat diapers last spring when I participated in the Flats Challenge. I decided that if I was going to write a blog about cloth diapers perhaps I should experience them every way possible! So I jumped on board with the Flats Challenge and quickly loved my flat diapers.



I have a stash of about 20 flat diapers. I go through phases where I only use my modern cloth, but there will be weeks at a time where I only reach for my flats! They really are easy to use, particularly the way I like to use them. My favorite way to use flat diapers is to pad fold them and lay them into a cover. No fancy folding on a squirmy, busy toddler or worrying about pins or a Snappi.

Why I love them:
Flat diapers are one of the cheapest ways to cloth diaper! They are less than $2 a diaper! You could create a whole stash of covers and flats for less than $75. They are easy to care for, dry quickly, and less prone laundry woes. Flats are also great stuffed inside pocket diapers as an alternative to microfiber inserts! No compression leaks, inexpensive, and trim! For more information on flat diapers, check out my Back to Basics post.

OsoCozy is giving you the chance to win a package of flat diapers! One lucky winner will win a dozen unbleached OsoCozy Flat Diapers along with the rest of the prizes at the end of the Favorite Things Giveaway! Be sure to follow along with this series so you don't miss out!

Can't wait to win it? You can purchase a dozen OsoCozy flat diapers from Kelly's Closet for $23.95.

Have you given flats a try? Is using them easier or just as hard as you expected them to be?

  1. I haven't really used flats yet - I have a dozen I still need to prep. I'm excited to do the flats challenge! I was still pregnant at that time last year and was bummed I couldn't participate.

  2. I really like using flats! I use them at home and send MF inserts to daycare as those are easier for them. I think flats are more absorbent, too!

  3. I have maybe 3 flats and I love to put them inside a pocket diaper at nap time. It gives my LO the dry feeling while being super absorbent. I will sometimes use one inside of a cover.(It's good for changing when running errands) I'm planning to use mostly flats for little man when he arrives this summer.

  4. I typically use them inside a pocket. I am excited to use more in the spring with our new one. But they are definitely something that I should use more since they really absorb well

  5. I am excited about flats, I talked to my mom this morning and she said she had fun folding flats when I was a baby. The Service she used brought Flats and prefolds but the flats were more adjustable! Because I have no way of knowing whether our Newbie will be chunky or skinny I think they will be good to have!
