Anyone use Flips Organics on a Newbie???

Just thinking ahead here.....I love, LOVE my Flips organic trifolds in my AI2s....would love to hear if anyone has used them with a newborn. With our youngest we used GMD orange and then yellow.....thinking the Flips are trimmer and more absorbent......but, then again, would they be pretty bulky on a 7 pounder?? Maybe start with orange edge and then move up to Flips?? I would probably lean towards Thirsties XS or Duo size 1....

We all ready have about 2 dozen Flips....so wouldn't have to buy quite as many prefolds...

Any thoughts and pictures would be great.....

They will be bulky. Though maybe not so much if you snappi them??

I used one stuffed in a 4.0 on the lowest setting for nights for awhile and it worked well but was way bulky.

my guy is almost 4 months old and probably 14 pounds and they fit much better now.

No pictures but I don't like flip organics until baby is in medium sized covers. They're just too bulky and overkill IMO.

The flips cut into thirds are great for newbies

I am fine with bulk most of the time, but I also find flips too big on a newborn... I just used as burp cloths until he was bigger (maybe 15? lbs)

Same here. Just didn't seem to fit right until on the middle snap rise. But I didn't try them snappi or on a new baby.

I am holding out hope for a organic sized insert from Flip before my newbie arrives!

I have no personal experience but this is my first inclination. A newb wouldn't be wetting that heavy and they fabric doesn't snappi well. They will be way too long trifolded on a newb (well, they would have been on my 7-lb DS at least). I love my Flip organic inserts too but I doubt I'll use them on our newb for a couple months at least.

This was true for us too. DS was close to 6 months before I got a reliable fit with his skinny little legs.

Thanks for all of the thoughts! They seem so trim on my 21 pound almost 16 month old......I just couldn't imagine how they would be on a newborn.....I will start out with orange edge or Zabi reds.....

I can't remember what was under it (either a med flat or a flip organic), but here is a flip at 4 weeks/~9lb. I think organics work fine on the small setting, you'll just have a high rise.


I think you'd be fine starting in nb/orange prefolds, and moving to flip organics after the first 4-6 weeks depending on how your lo grows.
