Interesting! I've never seen terry flats.
Recently DS has been doing well in a pocket stuffed with 2 bamboo inserts and 1 hemp insert underneath those. Sometimes it's soaked (but no leaking), but most of the time parts of the inserts are still dry. I've thought about trying prefolds overnight, but I'm too lazy to cut out a fleece liner to keep him from feeling wet. lol.
We've used flats all day and they've done really well! I can see myself wanting to use flats when out out of the house because they'll take up less room in my purse and wet bag. It's hard CDing when you don't carry a diaper bag!
Teagan's never leaked in a prefold but she gets super fidgety if she starts feeling too wet.
Yay for flats success! How do you CD without a diaper bag?! I also have a serious over-packing disorder. I'm using the two pockets I got the other day as on-the-go diapers to cut down on the bulk in my bag.
All I have on me is my wallet, keys, cell phone, small thing of eye drops for my contacts, a onesie, small wet bag, one diaper (usually a pocket but man a flat will take up less space!), small travel wipes, disposable changing mat (somebody gave me a package of these and I reuse till dirty), and my pocket point and shoot camera. Sometimes I'll throw in my nursing cover depending on where I'll be (I'm not a big fan of Mexican men staring at DS nursing). I keep an extra diaper or two in my car where I have more wipes, a fancy mat, etc.
What else do people drag around with them?! I couldn't fill up a diaper bag if I tried! lol.
