I really want to love flats, and have attempted to use our huge pile of receiving blankets as flats, which actually worked pretty well. My question is, if you do a fancy fold like the origami or kite fold, do you fold all of them when they come out of the dryer and have them in a folded stack all ready to go? Or do you fold at each diaper change? That is what got me stuck with flats, I couldn't work out a good system that made it seem like anything but a huge hassle. Help me to love them!
Mama to a sweet little redheaded girl, born 11/09; and my HBAC baby, little brother, born 7/12.
I folded them in a stack when they were dry, partially prepped for the origami fold (made into a square), or completely folded for the kite. My wiggly LO would get away if I took time to fold at each change.
For me, other advantages of flats balanced out the hassle of folding. ie, I REALLY liked putting a stack of useless receiving blankets to use :)
