I have not tried flats, but plan to with this baby :)

Elizabeth J. said...

I haven't tried flats yet but I recently watched Calley and Kim talking about the flat's challenge and heard that some people use them in pocket diapers. Now that interests me. I like the idea of them washing well with the simplicity of a pocket diaper.

Amanda Temple said...

I have prefolds, but no flats. Open to trying anything!

Candace said...

I love flats!

Jessica said...

I have some FST I've used, mainly padfolded!

Candace said...

I love flats!

Jodi Armstrong said...

We use prefolds but just never thought of trying a flat since prefolds were working so well. But would love to compare :)

Amy Lumley said...

I would love to try flats, but hate to purchase anything else. Use prefolds and covers all the time currently!

Rachael said...

I haven't yet, but am definitely going to with the next baby. Not sure why I haven't, probably because I love prefolds so much.

Sam C said...

I love flats! That is what we started cloth diapering with and I frequently go back to using them, especially on wash days!

Kat said...

We have our first baby on the way and I'm planning to do mainly prefolds and covers. I thought about flats but I'm not sure about all the extra folding.

Elena Kinny said...

My first baby is due in July. But I plan on trying flats since they are the most economical, and I think, the easiest to wash and dry.

jaynar R said...

I'm so excited. I would love to try new things and I love cloth diapers.

Katie S said...

I have not tried flats yet but have wanted to! I just haven't been buying anything new for quite some time now. I have a Geffen Baby prefold that I love though! My son actually wore the Geffen Baby prefold and a Flip cover last night to bed!!!

Jessica said...

I haven't tried flats, I love our prefolds and Flip covers. When I was building our stash I honestly thought that flats and prefolds were the same thing. Now that I know the difference I would love to try flats for their versatility and decreased drying time.

supermadchen said...

I don't have any 'real' flats, but I do use flour sack towels and I love them.

jaynar R said...

I love cloth diapers. I'm so excited for this giveaway!!!

rhiannon353 said...

No, I've never tried flats. I guess I just got carried away with all the cute pockets & AIOs available. Flats sound like a great option though, which I've been thinking of trying for my baby due in June.

CrabbyAbbie said...

I'm not sure what you mean by flats. Shoes? Yes I have.

Jennifer Y said...

Baby hasn't arrived yet so haven't had the opportunity :)

Loretta said...

I love flats! They are surprisingly absorbent and really versatile. I pad fold them or stuff them into pockets, and they M's she great bibs.

jaynar R said...

I love cloth diapers. These giveaways are great.

Andra Johnson said...

I have heard they are so much easier to use than people think and they are cheap!

Talia said...

I've only tried flats as an insert in pocket diapers before. With my new baby coming, I think I'm going to take the plunge and try flats and covers, though!

Rebecca Cantor-Williams said...

I haven't tried them. No reason, just prefer my prefolds and pockets.

Sandra Ambroise said...

I don't see a problem using flats. Just follow tutorials on the internet and find out what works best!

ashley jordan said...

I haven't tried flats because they seem difficult, but I'd like to!

Love using flats! Seemed scary at first but once I tried I realized how awesome they are!

I haven't tried flats yet because baby #1 is due in August!

I want to try flats, I've heard they're amazing.

Mama Blamer said...

I intend on buying flats but have not purchased any yet.

T Websie said...

I really want to try flats, I've heard they're amazing and easy to keep clean.

Rachel R said...

Love flats!

Elizabeth J. said...

We love flats!

Stephanie Craig said...

I have some Gerber Flats-but I feel like they gave flats a bad rep for me. I need to try some GOOD flats because I love my prefolds!

matope said...

Veronica Bohan said...

I haven't had the money to buy any flats yet so I have not tried them

Christine said...

i have used them a couple times, but will a lot in 2 says when the challenge starts!

rosemary said...

i'm definitely brave enough to try them, but already bought a full stash of pockets and aios. i can't justify dropping the money on flats but would love the chance to win some!

Esther Gagner said...

I have not tried only because i don't have the money to buy any flats and my receiving blankets are too small to fit around my baby.

jenn mcclearn said...

I have tried prefolds but not flats

Krista Baker said...

Haven't tried flats yet afraid of all the folding but would love to give it a try..

Krista Baker said...

kim worrell said...

Just tried my 1st hemp flats & I absolutely love them

I have heard good things about flats but have not tried flats. We just have used prefolds and microfiber inserts.

avirtuouswife10 said...

I'm just about to try flats and covers- I've got six, and have been using them as burp cloths until I reach enough washes for maximum absorbency. I'd love to add this bundle to my stash!

Colleen Maurina said...

We love flats and covers! They are so easy for even dads to use.

Sarah Hayes said...

i love flats. I wish I had more of them

Emily Reed said...

We use flats probably once a week :) daddy is still learning so keeping it simple

Anna B. said...

I have some flats to try for when my little one joins the world to July!

Tara said...

I love flats! I think folding them is fun, they wash and dry really quickly and easily, and they are nice and trim under covers. I wish I had more!!

Diane said...

I love flats!

Jill said...

I love flats! I use them in my pocket diapers for a dual pupose- cleanliness and stay dry!

Laura Vara said...

Haven´t tried them yet, but I will. I don´t see how a little mess can be the end of the world. Our moms and grandmothers used them and we are all still here right? It saves a ton of money, and it is good for the little ones. Better than any chemicals right?

Leah CW said...

I've tried pad-folded flats in a cover. Haven't been brave enough for fancy folds yet :)

Lauren McCray said...

no not yet. i think i have the basics as "back up" but have never done it. just kind of nervous it will be a mess!

AgKB said...

I have used flats a couple of times when trying to get rid of a rash. I am always surprised at how easy they are to master.

kay said...

NEVER TRIED FLATS i UNSURE ABOUT ALL THE FOLDING

Stephanie Larsen said...

We use flats padfolded in a cover - I love how they dry so quickly and stay soft, even without throwing them in a dryer! For our next baby, I want to use flats the "real" way, fancy folds and all. ;)

nikki lynn said...

I use prefolds but have not yet tried flats.

Sophia said...

Yes! I like it! :D I'm about to take the Flats Challenge starting this weekend and I'm pretty excited!

Haven't tried flats yet, all my diapers were either given to me our bought used when I found them really cheap

jennifer NL said...

we were not brave enough when my son was in diapers, but now that we are preparing for the arrival of baby #2, i'm stocking up on them!

Brie Drumm said...

Not yet. Just starting :)

Erin B. said...

I have never tried flats, no reason really. I think I would try them if I were looking to buy something different.

Sara Heffner said...

I have not been brave enough to try flats! I would love to take the journey though!

Maggie said...

We LOVE flats!! They are so easy to use, wash, and dry! We use them as inserts, or simply wrap them around baby.

Sara Heffner said...

I haven't been brave enough to try flats. I would love to take that journey though!

Danielle D said...

I have one flat, but haven't gotten a chance to try it yet! I think that they can be great options, and I hope to use them more often!

Michelle Tamasa said...

I have bought any groats, but we use some burp cloths and fabric squares as flat diapers.

Becky Marie said...

I have not used flats yet. I want to, but we have a lot of prefolds and so have been using those instead. I'd love the chance for flats and the greater variety of fold options that come with them!

Rachel said...

No baby yet, but i'm definitely planning to give flats a chance!

Jutta Pearce said...

Yup, our stash is mainly flats. We LOVE them!!!!

JLJMommy said...

I have one flat and have only used it pad folded in a pocket. I've heard great things about geffen baby and would love to try one! Thanks for the chance!

kg said...

I have not been brave enough for flats yet!

Melissa said...

We padfold flats in a 4.0 at night

Stephanie Slavy said...

I love using flats while at home. They're a little too inconvenient for the nursery at church or while out.

Loren Soltish said...

So excited!!!!!!

Loren Soltish said...

LOVE Geffen Baby flats and inserts!!! They are so soft and absorbent:)

Jennifer said...

I haven't tried flats, but I'm intrigued.

Sarah said...

I plan to eventually try out flats. I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Unknown said...

I'm grateful to have an opportunity to enter this giveaway. I would love to try a Geffen baby flat!

Tiffany said...

Not yet. I got prefolds and haven't needed more yet. But now with a second on the way, I'll have 2 in diapers. So I think it's time to give them a try!

Amanda said...

I haven't tried flats but I love prefolds. I haven't bought any flats because my favorite local diaper shop doesn't sell them.

Marina Kawina said...

Yes. I do use flats on daily basis. I staff them either in pockets or trifold in the cover. Very easy!

Ashley mw said...

I've used flour sack towels trifolded, but would love to try traditional flats!

Delacey von Busse said...

We haven't tried flats yet as my husband is not supportive of it.

Monique said...

Would love to win these to see how I like them.
I only have pockets so far, because I'm too scared to spend money on flats. Lol

Susan s. said...

I have yet to try flats. I actually am waiting for an order to come in the mail to get my first flat! I'm excited to try them!

Katy@TheOpenDoor said...

I've only ever used pocket diapers, but I'm looking to possibly branch out and try some other things with my second baby on the way!

Team Oberg said...

I actually just got some bamboo flats. So light and breathable for summer :)

Weng Rodriguz said...

I have tried flats and cover with my first child around 2009. It was then more for the breathability and comfort that took me to cloth diapering.

Ladeana said...

Not yet we are ttcing!

Keri Huck said...

I haven't been brave enough to try flats yet, something about having to fold/fit them myself and clip/pin them on just turns me off them. I've seen a lot of people who love them so I'd like to try!

Martha said...

I LOVE flats! They're all I use when traveling and I wish I had known about them before I started CDing because I would have gone just with them and covers.

Angela said...

I have used flats but tend to use trifolded prefolds more.

Julie G. said...

I have not done flats yet but we definitely like prefolds!

Jessica said...

We are just starting cloth and I haven't tried flats! I'd love to win one to try!

Anonymous said...

Amanda Felton said...

I haven't used flats yet, but really want to try them with our new baby due in 7 weeks

Shalaina Simmons said...

I have only use fst flats and converted t-shirts. However, I love them. I'll be adding receiving blankets to our flats stash so that we have enough to completely participate in the flats & hand washing challenge.

Amanda P said...

Love hemp around here

Shalaina Simmons said...

I wouldn't mind switching to all flats for our stash, and just keeping a few inserts. I like flats in our pockets better.

Elizabeth Crabtree said...

Nope, never tried them. Not really sure what the differences are between prefolds...?

Sweetpetunia said...

I wasn't brave enough to try flats till my third cloth baby. I wish I'd tried them much, much sooner! I now way prefer them over prefolds. :)

Sarah PSMomReviews said...

YES! I just started using flats after almost a year of cloth diapering. I wish I'd discovered them earlier. One of my favs now.

Sew What said...

I prefer flats. I have a few and I am trying to replace my cheap microfiber inserts with them. They was easier. I dont have to worry about stinkies.

Sweets_t01 said...

I like to pad fold flats and use them in my pockets
-Patricia B-

Sheridan Nicole said...

I have never had an opportunity to use flats but I would love to try them. I currently use prefolds with Flips and they are great but flats would dry quicker and that is a huge draw!

Kirby said...

We use flats because that is what the diaper service has. They are intimidating at first, but I've got it down now!

Robyn said...

I want to try flats and covers

aperry said...

I've used prefolds... not flats. I'd love to try them.

elisesmom922 said...

I love flips, and econobum flats, use them all the time!!

Heather N Hess said...

Would love to win

Kelsey Farver said...

I haven't been brave enough to try flats yet, but the more that I've read about them, the more that I think it's time to take a dive. They are cost effective and seem to be one of the more absorbent options out there.

Kate Record said...

I've yet to try "real" flats but have used receiving blankets folded like flats. They were WAY too thick though and didn't work. I'd love to try a real flat!

Vicki Hall said...

I love flats pad folded in a cover.

Tracey Nichols said...

I haven't tried flats yet, but I have 2 that I ordered that should be here soon! I'm excited to try them!

Jennifer Anderson said...

I used this combination today, padfolded (I don't own any snappis) & it was great! I'd love to own another flat & get better at folds!

Ashleigh Krawll said...

I would love to try flats and a flip cover!

Ashleigh Krawll said...

Jennifer Anderson said...

We used this combination today (without the snappi because we don't own any) padfolded & it was great! I'd love to own another flat (we only have one)!

ryan kiesh said...

We stuff our pockets with flats. I prefer them they are easier to deal with.

Hey Jen said...

I'm new to cloth diapering so I'm gonna try everything! Flats included! Excited to even. :D

Amber Dunn said...

Not yet!

Anonymous said...

I would love this!

I have not tried flats, other than just pad folded in a cover. The whole origami thing intimidates me!

Nicolle Starnes said...

Love flats. Excited to do the flats handwashing challenge this year!

Jes said...

Haven't tried flats yet! I fell in love with AI2s and never tried them.

Ainee Ramos said...

I have been using 2 fst stuff in applecheeks as my son's overnight diaper for awhile now

Ivy Osornio said...

I love flats! I don't know I didn't try them sooner. They're trim and so easy to care for.

Amy said...

I haven't tried flats but I want to!

Christina McBrayer said...

I was not at all interested in trying flats (after finally realizing they were not the same as prefolds), until I saw a video showing how easy they are to over fold. Now both my husband and I love them!

Rachel Z said...

I just ordered my first flats, they should be here tomorrow! Looking forward to trying them. :-D

On Eagle's Wings said...

I've used an organic cotton flat with cover and really liked it because it was very trim fitting.

Rebecca Azer said...

We love flats! Flats/ prefolds with cover make up about half of our stash. We have never tried a hemp flat though.

Rachel F. said...

I am just researching more into flats and wondering why I haven't tried them sooner! I think I was just too afraid of folding, but I do want to try some. I keep hearing about the Flats Challenge in May and might need to get my hands on some flour sack towels to start.

April M said...

I haven't tried flats. I'm not really sure why not.

Charla Tinsley said...

I have not tried flats yet but that is what I plan on using since it will be more economical.

Charla Tinsley said...

april H. said...

I haven't started cloth diapering yet, but want to try a number of different types of diapers including flats once the baby gets here!

judi said...

I've use flats as inserts in my pockets all the time. I've also used them pad folded in covers and pinned on.

Hannah Avery said...

No, I have not tried flats. But I am not adverse to it either, as long as they work well. I am a little scared of the folding part.

-Hannah

Desiree Young (Lexi Wright) said...

Only coupled with a prefold they don't seem super absorbent on there own to me

freshsamanthaaa said...

Haven't tried flats yet, but they appeal to me on an economical perspective.

Danielle Stephens said...

Love flats and love Geffen Baby products. I need this for my stash!

Stacy Erickson said...

I would love to win. I really, really, really, want to try flats.

Stacy Erickson said...

I really want to try flats!

Cookies From Heaven said...

We already use flats and love them! However my little guys bum is very sensitive to 4.0s and we've been dying to try sine flip covers!

Dawn McIntosh said...

I can't wait to try out this flat!

Carrie L said...

I havent yet...mainly because i like to be able to use everything at daycare. However....we are planning to go camping this summer and i need to stock up for that!

Erika Summers said...

I have never tried flats because we use pockets and a few aio but I'm curious about flats!

Lori said...

Yes! We use pad folded flats

Brittani Webb said...

I would love to try out flats! I'm due with my first born in June, so I have yet to begin cloth diapering, but I'm very excited!

qtflirt said...

Have not had chance to try these kinds of flats. Have tryed other types that are more of a terry cloth material and some gerber prefolds but they seem to feel soggy rather than wicking moisture away. Would love to try these new ones out.

susansnotes said...

I use flats mostly at home. It saves on laundry as I don't have to wash the cover every time.

Sara R. said...

im very interested in trying flats.the only reason i havent is because i have a super heavy wetter and good flats arent cheap and i dont really have money to spare if they dont work

SarahN said...

We love flats! Easier to wash, easier to dry, more customizable, lighter for travel and packing. Flats are the best!

Ally E said...

Nope, I've done prefolds, but not flats

catie said...

Our LO isn't here yet, but I can't wait to try flats!

Marya Mann said...

Yes I have b/c they are cheaper

Asha Evins said...

I haven't tried flats yet, I've only been cloth diapering for 6 days. I plan on getting some when she gets a little bigger though. I'm excited to tie-dye some!

Ashley H said...

I would love to try this. I've heard great things about Geffen Baby!

Amanda Baker said...

I have never tried flats, I just started using cloth diapers a few months ago. I would love to give flats a try!

Amanda Baker said...

I just started cloth diapering a few months ago and have not tried flats yet. I after watching a video on flats ( from Kelly's Closet) I decided I should give them a try!

happy family said...

:/ Not brave enough with a snapi! Only folded so far.

Britni Bradford said...

Yes, I love flats for my newborn because the EBF poo washes so clean from them.

happy family said...

:/ I've only folded flats, not brave enough to do a snapi yet!

morganehman said...

I have been using flats on my son and I love them. I even have a Geffen flat that I got in a fluff fairy one month. It is a great flat! I was tempted to participate in the flat challenge but with a newborn and a toddler I just don't have the extra energy to hand wash :(

Jerrod's mommy said...

I've tried flats that are trifolded, but that's about it!

Carly Tea said...

I have a few flour sack towels that I've tried using as flats, but I've never tried actual flats and I've heard they're much better. I'd love to try some.

Aksana Yas said...

I've tried flats before, the birdseye cotton ones, and found them ok. I like how versatile they are, and one size. But I have recently found these hemp jersey flats, and I so want to try them!!!

Aksana Yas said...

I have tried flats before and love them. Love how versatile they are. But I have recently discovered the Geffen baby flats, and oh so want to try them. They look so very comfortable. I'm planning my stash for my 5th baby (just dreams now, but will hopefully become reality one day)

danielle rikalo said...

Would love to try flats. Never tried flats or pre folds yet.

Melissa Roberts said...

I have tried flats and I love them

Misa said...

Right now I'm only using flats - they seem to be the most economical option and easy to take care of.

Julie Bartlett said...

Yes, I use flour sack towels as flats to stuff pockets.

Lisa H said...

I've never tried flats!

Michael n said...

I have not tried flats,but i would like too :)

Jena said...

Are Applecheeks bamboo inserts considered flats? I love them! They're probably too small to fold into anything other than pad fold, though. I want flats--I'm so sick of my microfiber OS diapers...

Shan said...

I hope I'm brave enough! This will be our first child to cloth diaper. And during the Newborn stage we would like to try flats.
