Flips Full-Time?

Does anyone use Flips and stay-dry inserts full-time? Pros? Cons?

I don't but easily could. I really like them they hold up well still fit my 2.5 year old fine with room to grow. I just wish the organic flip inserts weren't so expensive. The stay dry inserts never worked for us they shifted around to much.

I could use Flips full time, but not their inserts. I they just are a pain to wash and expensive. I much prefer flats or prefolds.

I've used them with prefolds before and hated it. So bulky, even with sized prefolds (I trifold, no snappis for me!) DD is super sensitive to moisture, so I need a stay dry option. Sigh. I am going crazy stuffing pockets with sticky PUL!

I use GMD reds and I think they are very trim.

I used something similar (medium diaper rites), and they were super bulky. That's just my opinion, though. And also, DD is super sensitive to moisture and got pretty bad, raw rashes with cotton right next to her bottom.

Re: Flips Full-Time?

Could you cut up fleece and lay that on top of the prefold or insert if you found something that worked? Hemp and bamboo always have worked for us but they are a little more expesnive.
