OK, baby had a good sized poo.... no leaking out the sides of the diapers, but she did leak into the cover.

I hope the file attachments worked!

Oh looks like it would work I think all newbies with EBF poo will leak into the cover if used with a lay in prefold...I think it is a winner!

Great! Thanks so much for posting and sharing the pictures! I'm glad it worked! I think this will make the Flip fit smaller babies much earlier. I guess if you need it to get a little bigger but still fit smaller than the regular small setting you could even move the rise to the middle setting and still fold down the back!

As for poop leaking onto the cover, with newbies, that just happens with trifolded prefolds. Not too much there to keep it only on the diaper. But it looks like the cover did its job! It kept the mess inside!

Re: Anybody out there with a newborn and a Flip cover?

What a great idea!!! I bet this would work to "downsize" the BG 4.0 too, since it's made pretty much the same as the Flip. It might be a little bulkier because of the lining and pocket insert, but worth a try I think!
As for the EBF poo leaking onto the cover, my son is almost 18 months old and his poo almost always gets on the inside of cover!

I thought about it too for the 4.0, but also thought it might be pretty bulky - especially on a little newborn. But it would probably work!
