What a fabulous idea! Do you make inserts for them at all? I adore the fit of the Flip covers but I hate all the options for inserts. I've been wishing I could have something like Softbums (but cotton or hemp) that snapped in a Flip cover. My BGEs take forever to dry yet BGEs or Flips are all the fit my kids for some reason.

Re: Adding snaps to my flip inserts to stop shifting...??

I've been trying out the best bottom diapers recently - so far I love the inserts but can't get a good fit with the covers. I've been thinking about adding snaps to my flip covers to match up with the snaps already on the best bottom inserts. I just need to order order a couple of large inserts (using mediums now) to see if that affects the snap placement. I also have a couple wahm inserts as well as some prefolds - the idea of customizing all of those with snaps so they won't shift around in the Flip cover is very appealing. I just might be spending some birthday money on a pair of snap pliers very soon

Oh BuggaBuggaBoutique... You are super talented! When dd starts crawling I might have to message you about doing this to my flips. Right now they are fine but I'm not sure about how they will be when she is crawling/running around...
