I love that color but I wish it wasn't snaps!

Also I do less padfolding at this stage (my ten month old still has pretty ebf diapers due to barely any solids) I can see this being a great diaper for when she is a toddler but I guess we will have to see about the absorbency. For us right now its EXTREMELY absorbent but it took a good 7 or 8 washes to get them that way.
Are the flips less bulky than the birdseye flats?

Depends on how you use the flats but for pad folding definitely

Yes I found them less bulky in every fold because in a pad fold you are only doing six layers and folding it like a pf is only two layers versus the 12 layers for birdseye padfold and the 4 for birdseye prefold fold.

I have to say that I DO really like padfolding with the flip flats but we don't padfold right now very often. They have been GREAT dh diapers though.

Re: My Flip Daytime insert review with pics

Thank you for your review ReadingRenee! I was on the fence about these for an easy MIL diaper but I think I gotta try some now. Even better if I can figure something out to get DD in cloth at night again.

Re: My Flip Daytime insert review with pics

I've only washed mine once so far and they seem to be kinda misshapen if that makes sense? Has anyone else had this issue? I'm having a hard time folding them to get them even. Maybe I just need to wash/dry them some more...

Re: My Flip Daytime insert review with pics

I wasn't too impressed with the absorbency but now that they have been washed 8-10 times they are working well. I had gotten some leaks before this point but now seems good. I do wish they were two layers though. It would help with stability and be just a tad more absorbent. I think they make a nice day time choice. I like them way better than my Birdseye flats padfolded, much smoother and no bump anywhere. I do wish they folded down to a little wider size. If you fold them corner to corner they end up pretty narrow. I just place them in a stay dry sock inside my flips so there isn't very much pul touching skin..even after it gets wet.

I noticed that too, which it can be folded but makes it kind of wrinkly. Not too big of a deal to me.

Good idea about the stay dry socks! I have some and find flats a little too bulky with the stay dry sock but a Flip flat would be thin enough I think to not be too bulky. Thanks for the idea, Im going to try it for a nap diaper.

yeah, the edges don't lay perfectly even - but they don't roll or curl so it doesn't bug me.
