    The ones from big w are much better than the ones from Kmart/target, they are a lot thicker. The brand is Dickies. I love terry flats! I also have a selection of MCNs though (my little ripple are great and so cheap), I find them much easier when out and about but always use flats at home. I prefer the flats as they NEVER leak and they can be pinned to fit different ways. So cheap and so easy to clean/dry. MCNs were useless for us when she was a newborn. But very easy to clean and dry also.

    I use PUL covers though, much prefer them to the plastic pants. And I use wool or fleece covers at night.

    I got a whole heap of terry flats when I had DS but hated the plastic pants. I bought 10 my little ripple MCN's and hated the inserts. Now I fold a terry flat and stuff it inside the MCN. I pull it out before I wash it. Super quick to dry. Never had a problem with nappy rash because the fabric in the MCN wicks moisture straight into the terry.
    I also have a lovely stash of itti bitti MCNs (which I love) but with regards to leaks and drying time, my MCN+terry is superior!
    All the best for your baby making!!

    I used terry flats. I bought mine I think from kmart or big w.

    I also like prefolds, they're a good in between flats and mcns (like these)

    What is the measurements for the old flat nappies ?
    I am seriously considering just making some out of a flannelette sheet, then I can make them any colour I like :-)
    I remember just using a wollen over nap, instead of the plastic over nap, the plastic ones always use to leave marks on baby's legs.
    I wonder if polor fleece over naps would work out just as well too

    My bestie's Mum was devastated that she couldn't get them for me - she even went into Myer and asked and the shop assistant laughed at her when she asked for "old fashioned flat nappies". Oh well! The Dickies have held up really well and felt considerably thicker than the Big Softies brand.

    I use a couple of polar fleece covers that I made myself - they work really well.
