Anybody out there with a newborn and a Flip cover?

I came up with a new way of putting the Flip on a itty bitty newborn while laying a wake and trying to fall asleep the other night. Why I was even thinking about this is beyond me. I don't have a newborn, I'm not pregnant or planning on getting pregnant anytime soon But I have no idea if this would actually work on a real baby. So if anyone has a Flip cover and a newborn and wants to try this out, please let me know if it works of if I'm just nuts

Anyways, my thought is to fold the back of the cover over twice so you still end up with the snaps facing the right direction, the back flap still kinda works, and with the elastic should work too. This may make it too small, but I don't know...no real baby to play with!

Here are some pictures on a doll with a GMD orange edge laid inside and a picture tute to show what I'm talking about:

Here's what the new small folded size looks like on the doll

Here's the regular small setting

Back of folded small

Back of regular small setting

Leg gap is almost nonexistent with back folded

Regular small had big leg gap

Here's how I did it:

Lay prefold inside with diaper pushed up to the front of the cover

fold the back of cover over once, not covering up any of the diaper

Fold over again making a new back "flap" to cover the diaper.
Then just snap as usual.

Someone please try this and tell me if it works! A picture on a real baby would be great!
