We've used the umbrella term 'flat nappies' to include terry squares, prefolds, contours and tie-on nappies.
Although terry squares get a bad press and are seen as being old-fashioned - a remnant of the 'bad old days' of cloth nappies they are incredibly versatile and we've sourced some lovely unbleached cotton terries that have a multitude of uses...
Prefolds are ideal to use with a close fitting wrap and can be used pad folded in a close fitting wrap, or alternatively as a folded pad with a pocket style nappy.
Contours are really just shaped prefolds, a little easier to use, maybe a bit less versatile.

junior joy - supreme terry squares - pack of 12
Great value basic terry nappies.
This pack of 12 white terry towelling squares are a great budget choice and can be used on babies from birth to toddler - though they may be bulky on babies under 3 months.
With bound edges to keep their shape, Junior Joy terries are approximately 60cm square. Use with nippas or pins to secure and cover with a wrap of your choice.
Due to the heavy weight, we don't ship this product outside of the UK.
These are great quality prefolds made from 100% cotton.
They consist of 3 panels - the central panel comprises 8 layers (6 in the small size) and the outer panels are 4 layers. Use folded into a simple pad inside a wrap - no pins required - or in a pocket style nappy.
Easy to care for, wash at up to 90 degrees and quick to dry. Less absorbent than a terry nappy but changing slightly more often deals with this.
Makes for a very efficient and economical nappy system.
