help me choose: thirsties duo vs. flip covers

I'm having a hard time deciding between the two.. do you think the thirsties with its elastic in the front waist is more comfy than a flip? The flip *seems* like everything about it is more gentle. Which one have you found to be more gentle on your little ones? Less red marks ect.

I haven't tried the flips, but the duos are awesome! No red marks here. My favorite PUL cover is Fluffy's, though, if you're looking for other options. You can search for "Fluffy's diapers" on Etsy.

I've tried both and the flips work best on my boys! Both have chunky legs.

I found Flips softer against skin. Hated Thirsties for my newborn, was rough against skin...

We couldn't get a good fit on skinny legs with the flip until about 12 mos. Love the Duo with the gussets, the legs had a tighter fit on our skinny minny.
