I am wondering if they are as absorbent as birdseye, or more, since they're kitchen towels. How many do you generally have to use with a toddler? One, with another folded up inside? Could I use one and place a microterry towel trifolded between the dipe and the cover (or is that still too close to baby's skin?
I feel that they may be the best thing for me to get since the 27" x 27" size of a basic flat may be too small for my 33 pound 2 year old DD, and the larger ones I've seen are still only suggested up to 31 pounds.
Can anyone help me with this?
Desperate for assistance; I've spoken of nothing else but cloth diapers to DH for a few weeks now!
Have you tried a flat yet? I use pfs, but I've found that the weight ranges don't necessarily apply. My ds has a tiny little bum, so we can still use the premium size, even though by weight he should be in toddlers.
homemaker mama to and due in March
Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
If you can sew (and I mean just a basic hem around something, nothing fancy) you might consider buying birdseye pique from OSDS...it's a 36" width, so you could buy a few yards of it and cut it in 36"x36" squares. That should be plenty big enough, even for a toddler. It's not expensive, either: http://www.diapershop.com/index.php/...d/17/subid/22/
only $3.00 a yard, with discounts for more than 10 yards.
But if you already have a bunch of sack towels, no harm in giving it a try!
