New Grovia Prefolds vs Flips Organic Insert??

I like the Flip Organic Inserts. I LOVE how absorbent they are. However, mine are showing signs of wear & tear (small holes forming along seams) and I would like to either purchase more or find another alternative. I want something either the same size or thinner - nothing thicker! And would want it to hold just as much pee.

Anyone try the new Grovia Prefolds?

Re: New Grovia Prefolds vs Flips Organic Insert??

I was a tester and have a size 3, i was never impressed with my cotton prefolds, but this one I love. My son can sleep through the night in the prefold alone. I add a booster for peace of mind, but neither are fully saturated.
I have never tried a flip so I can't compare there, but I can say I love the GroVia prefold more than my DSQ cottons.

I would like to know as well. I love my Flips, but need to increase my stash. I was thinking about Grovia prefolds or possibly Imagine bamboo prefolds. I too would like something a little thinner than Flips, but need something for a heavy wetter. Any feedback would be great.

When inserts start getting holes do they need to be replaced? I've wondered this. All my joey bunz hemp have holes. Not sure if I should replace them for #2 go just go one using them....

That would be wonderful. How do they compare as far as absorbency?

Re: New Grovia Prefolds vs Flips Organic Insert??

Okay you guys got me interested. My 3 year old has been leaking out of his night time diaper this week - it stinks he goes a week almost dry - then a week of flooding. We use a BG 4.0 mf and a med jb hemp. Do you think the grovia prefold, imagine med or lg bamboo prefold or the thirties hemp sz 2 prefolds would absorb more? Maybe still with the jb hemp as well?

I haven't used much bamboo. the only doubler I have hasn't impressed me, but it also isn't very big.

Are flips just plain 100% cotton? No interlock or knit?

Re: New Grovia Prefolds vs Flips Organic Insert??

I have a Grovia size two prefold and I used it alone last night. I was planning on changing in the middle of the night, but didn't. There were no leaks in the morning and my DD nursed a few times at night. It was very, very wet though!

But I haven't tried it other than this one time. I'm going to try a few more times to see it if was just a fluke or if it will reliably work for nights.
