Size Half - made of Organic unbleached cotton off-white edge stitch, for preemies or small newborns 4-8 pounds as a diaper, or to potty learning as a doubler for extra absorbency, approximate size 16 x 27.5 inches after washing.
Size One-Size - made of Organic unbleached cotton red edge stitch 6-35+ pounds. 29x29 before washing and shrinks to approximately 28x26.75 inches.
Size Large - made of Organic unbleached cotton off-white edge stitch 13-40 pounds. 33x35 before washing and shrinks to around 30x30 inches.
Size Large is a special custom wide-width fabric sewn to shrink to as close to a perfect square as we can get it to be. All of our square birdseye flats are made to be as square as is possible. Our Size Large may be the biggest size birdseye flats available in the USA.
See this on a baby and find the how-to fold flats video link.
The organic version is tan in color and still contains the natural cotton oils which must be washed off before full absorbency is reached. Doing these initial wash cycles is called prepping. The white version already has the natural cotton oils removed so fewer initial prep cycles are needed.
All measurements are approximate.
100% cotton birdseye diapers. "One-Size" means one-size can fit from birth to potty learning, or is a one-size fits all size.
We also have a special larger size called size Large. Size large shrinks to about 30x30 inches after washing and are 33x35 inches before washing.
Our one-size isn't very small. In fact, our "one-size" is larger than some other brands size large. Our size Large is great if you happen to like doing the origami fold on an older baby but the one-size are good for most other folds on any baby of any age. I think the size large is too much diaper for a newborn and it can be unwieldy to fold. Most will be happy with the "one-size" size from birth to potty learning.
Use size Half as doublers in your flats: You can add the Size Half birdseye to another diaper when you need more absorbency but don't want the bulk of double-diapering. They also are the perfect dishcloths.
Now, birdseye is a variable fabric and they will never be perfect squares consistently with any brand due to the nature of the fabric, but these are usually reasonably square which does help make folding easier and we strive to make them as square as we possibly can. While these are not expensive at all, they truly are better than other brands for both fabric quality and squareness. I hope you love them as much as I do. They are very nice, high quality cotton birdseye weave.
Easy-washing, real 100% cotton. Made in Pakistan. Flats don't get diaper stink. You don't need to strip your diapers when you use flats because they really do wash up nicely and easily.
Please wash several times before first use to remove the natural cotton oils. Link to more washing information.

We used your birds eye flat folds to diaper 4 of our 6 kids-economic, practical and all purpose use. As we are using old GMD flat diapers around the house as cleaning rags they have finally become threadbare, the baby is now 5. I hated the last package of dish towels for drying and thought I'd splurge and treat myself to my favorite diapers for everyday kitchen drying. I love how these flats keep shape, absorb well, and stand the test of time! No fuss or worry with color, these look tidy in the drawer or on the counter, dry quickly in the wash, and handle just about everything we can throw at them. Glad to be past diapers, but glad I can still get my favorites!
My kids are out of cloth diapers now, but I wanted flat diapers for use around the house. I remembered purchasing from Green Mountain years ago, so checked here. Excellent quality and fast shipping from a company I trust. Thanks!
I first found gmd 12 years ago. I bought a mix of flats and prefolds way back then. I still have a few flats that are still in good shape. Unlike other diapers we have used these diapers get softer and softer with age. My 12 year old flats are silky soft.
