What do you use with a Flip cover?

What do you use in your flip cover? I have the regular Indian prefold from cottonbabies and they are very effective at absorbing anything and everything, but they are really bulky. My LO is on the biggest size, but I still have to fold the front of the prefold down... So I'm wondering if I should get a smaller size next time. Is there a certain size/brand of prefold that works best trifolded in a Flip diaper cover?

Re: Flip Diaper + Prefolds - What do you use?

Thanks for the feedback! What are the advantages of flats? Are they more trim looking in the diaper? Do they absorb similarly? I'll have to look into some. What brand do you use?

Re: What do you use with a Flip cover?

I voted "Flip inserts", because I think I tend to use those w/ a Flip cover for the baby, but when I use the Flip covers on my 2 yo DD I usually just use an Econobum prefold (which fit perfectly, and fairly trim, on the largest setting). I don't have enough flats to use in my Flip covers too (yet) since I have to use my flats to stuff my older DS's overnight trainers.

I found that GMD Yellow edge prefolds give me the best fit for DD on the Medium rise setting and I plan to try out the GMD Reds when she moves up to the Large rise setting.

Re: What do you use with a Flip cover?

I voted Flip inserts, which I do use and like, but I am now in love with Chelory's fold-to-fit stay dry inserts! I don't like the bulkiness of pf's so I prefer to use inserts... Chelory's are awesome!

Flip Organic inserts, and GMD dk brown edges...DS has been demanding the GMD over the Flip Organic's all of the sudden, not sure why? Maybe because they are softer? Hmmm.
