Flat Cloth Diapers

Flat Cloth Diapers

Flat diapers are one-layer of absorbent cotton, 2-foot to 3-foot square. These are the old-fashioned nappies that our grandmothers washed and folded---and they are still very popular.

CLOTH DIAPER LINGO: Birdseye = light, woven cotton fabric that has small, raised diamond shapes on it. Because of the extra surface area created by the raised pattern, birdseye is particularly absorbent, which makes it a great fabric for cloth diapers.

The Lowest Cost Cloth Diapers

Flat diapers are the least expensive diapering option because you don't need to buy new sizes. Buy a few dozen diapers for a few dozen dollars, and all you have left to buy are simple covers. These diapers are extremely popular for countries that lack access washers and dryers. Also in case of emergencies you can launder these diapers by hand and simply hang to dry.

A Multitude of Uses

Flats are the most versatile of all cloth diapers.  They are a one size fits all option.  If you don't want the hassle of folding these and fastening with pins, you can simply pad fold them and stuff your pockets or use as an insert.  Flats are a much cheaper alternative than other soakers on the market used in pockets or all in ones.  Also, many car detailing companies, optic companies, and cleaning companies utilize these for cleaning.  

Easiest to Wash and Dry

Because flat diapers are only one layer, they are very easy to wash and dry quickly and thoroughly.

No Worries About Size

With a flat diaper you will never wonder when you need to buy the right size or whether you grabbed the right size to put in your diaper bag when you are on the go.

Flat diapers are not sized. You determine the size of the diaper by how you fold it.

Common Around the World

Because these are the least expensive cloth diapers and the easiest to wash and dry, flat fold cloth diapers are still the most common diapers used around the world.
