prefolds with flips

what size prefolds and what brand do you use for ur flips on med size setting. i have red gmds i use with other colors but i like to use inserts with my flips and i was just wondering what size you use for med setting cause my gmd reds are just to big and i have some cotton babie infants that are to small i use them for my gdiapers. so before i invest in anymore prefolds id like to hear what fits best! please include brand and size thanks so much mamas!

I used to use my red edges folded the "wrong way" and they fit perfectly on the middle setting. Fold them the wide way and they will fit beautifully. Red edge toward red edge.

At least mine did.

Re: prefolds with flips

The inserts for my flips leak a little. Any trouble with that on the PF?

Re: prefolds with flips

I never had a problem with leaking with prefolds with my Flips. What kind of inserts? The Stay Drys? YES plenty of leaks with those. Compression leaks Im pretty sure. The organic insert I never had trouble with though.

Yes the stay dry! That would so be my luck. I have 35 of those! and 0 PF! Maybe someone on the FSOT board will like them.
I think I will order some yellow and red edge GMD to try first...whatcha think?

Re: prefolds with flips

I never had yellow edge but they look like they fit perfectly in the flip. I love GMD prefolds. Just be aware though that it will be WAY bulkier than the stay dry. Like WAY.

Also, I find my Stay dry's work great in my Thirsties duo wraps, (gussets and more of a narrow crotch I think makes the difference). Or as a doubler in flats or prefolds when I don't want to worry about MF touching my babies skin. I even lay them in my wool wrap and they work amazingly for that. Keeps the wool from getting wet and a nice stay dry layer for the baby.

I also still love 2 doubled up for nighttime. Recently I have had to add a bamboo doubler in between them but its still a "relatively" trim and very workable nighttime solution.

So you might want to keep some just in case. I find the 6 I have to come quite in handy. And if I want something SUPER trim, I still use a stay dry with my Flip.

Also there is always padfolded flats for trimness with prefold like absorbency but...I got tired of the folding.

Re: prefolds with flips

The yellows fit well in the Flips. I also remember reading on here that there was some brand of pre-folds that the Flip users were loving because the sizes matched the S, M, & L setting of the Flips perfectly. Can't remember the name though! (I feel like it sounded like a man's name) Anyone?

What about a prefold a little trimmer than the GMD? They just seem so bulky!
