Flat muslin cloth diapers are wonderful to have on hand for a newborn baby because they are so versatile. These square muslin flats are traditionally used for newborn babies as cloth diapers, but they also make wonderful burp cloths, newborn receiving blankets, bibs, and pretty much anything else that comes to your mind! Muslin is very absorbent, dries quickly, and can be folded up for a very trim fit because it is a very lightweight material, so it is ideal for cloth diapering your baby. The beauty of a flat of this size (27" x 27" after washing) is that you can use the same diaper on your baby for many, many months. These flats are truly one-size diapers.
There are many, many ways to fold these cloth diapers, and there is no one "right" way; each mother finds a fold that works best for her baby. For newborns, our favorite folds are both the "Jo" fold and the origami fold, both of which require a snappi fastener or diaper pin. The Jo fold is quite adjustable and can be used on a newborn as well as a much older baby.
You may also fold the muslin into thirds and use it as you would a prefold diaper folded into a cover. If you need more absorbency, you can add an extra liner or you can make a double layer by folding two muslin squares together. You can also use muslin flats folded up and placed inside of pocket diapers as quick-drying inserts for older babies.
Size: Each muslin cloth diaper measures approx 36" x 37" before being washed. After being washed, can be stretched out to about 32" x 32". A muslin flat of this size typically can fit babies from the newborn stage through the toddler stage, depending on the fold you choose.
