terry squares

more absorbant than a normal flat, can be snappi'ed & does everything else a flat does, great pocket stuffers too...

Towelling Flats

Post by bellasmum » Tue Jul 11, 2006 10:18 pm

I love terry towelling flats!!! :smt049 and I just have to have a rave...

I just visited my parents last week and ordered 12 terry flats to keep at their house so I only had to cart with me liners and covers.....and wow!!! they are so cute and functional. I used them as a change mat, a bath towel and of course a nappy!! I used what I think is commonly called the "oragami" fold - the triangle one with the pad in the middle and used a snappi.

I tended to use them coverless, as we hung out a home a lot. I am really surprised at myself, as I have a fairly varied stash, and am pretty attached to my MCN -AND I never thought I'd fall in love with something so "boring" - but now I have found myself bidding on some on TM to use around home.

There is nothing cuter or more nostelgic.....and Mum was happier as she finds MCN confusing.... :roll:

anyway rave over :oops: :oops: :oops:

Cheers,
Kim

anyone got a pic? Where do you order terry flats from? I only see flannel flats in the retail shops, do they sell terry flats too?

I ordered Actil Towelling nappies for $36.95 from Winkalotts

Their website is www.winkalotts.co.nz they do free delivery in NZ.

I don't have a piccy, but they are like thinnish baby towels - quite bulky I guess in comparison to MCN, but great for a toddler imo.

I'm really enjoying using my terry flats. Wow, I can't believe after 18 months I'm actually using them as nappies! I normally put them in my Fuzzibunz, folded with lots of absorbency at the front for my boy. A good way to keep costs down and of course they are so fast to dry!

It's funny how I could love something so simple, but I've been having great success with using a pad-folded terry inside a Bummis Cover. It's great when you can re-use the cover too.
