This is a rectangular knit organic cotton diaper. Because it is a knit, it does have some stretch to the fabric. It feels like a nice, soft tee shirt. It washes and dries very easily and fits for a long time. Like birdseye flats, there are many ways to use these. Before shrinkage they measure 29 x 17 inches and weigh 2.5 ounces. They do shrink quite a bit. This is suitable for newborn diapering and will fit all the way to potty learning, but more absorbency will be needed as baby grows of course, which you can achieve by adding a doubler or later, by double diapering.
The more cotton a diaper contains (indicated by how much it weighs) the more it will absorb. The more it weighs, the bigger and bulkier it is, too. That is always the trade off. Bigger is bulkier and bigger is more absorbent. Trimmer diapers are always less absorbent, but trimness has it's benefits, too. This is a trim diaper. For comparison, this weighs the same as a Cloth-eez newborn prefold at 2.5 ounces. A Cloth-eez small birdseye flat weighs 3.0 ounces and a large birdseye flat weighs 3.5 ounces. The washability is great. The fact that it is organically grown cotton is wonderful. And its a knit so it is soft and stretchy but we don't recommend pinning or fastening it because doing so could make holes in the knit fabric. The shape makes it easy to fold. It is squishy-soft. On older babies, this makes a substantial doubler for nights or naps. The trend is to call diapers "inserts" these days but that is just a name. A "diaper" or "insert" is the part that does the absorbing. A diaper cover goes over it. You can call them anything you prefer. You can use these in any diaper cover, including of course the Flip Cover. Made in USA.Diaper Cover sold separately here.
