Re: If you had to choose one... and why?

4.0s Flips are nice, but the 4.0s are just better

I'm the same way. Even worse, I MUST have 2 of each color. I have 1 bubble BG, and i don't keep with mine until i can find another because it bothers me lol

In theory I like Flips better, b/c you can stuff with natural fibers or a stay dry insert. Exposed PUL is kind of a gamble though.

In practice though I find 4.0s to be easier to use, i.e. easier to put on.

ETA: I don't like reusing covers, so I almost always throw flips straight in the diaper pail.

Re: If you had to choose one... and why?

I guess if I was forced to choose one over the other, I'd go with the 4.0s, and stuff them with cotton flats. I just hate microfiber, but that's a personal opinion.

Probably 4.0s. I love our Flips but every so often (teething, sick, etc) DS goes on a poopapalooza and I get so sick of cleaning out the Flips. The 4.0s are much easier to spray. So we go to our 4.0s. We have a full stash of both - I bought the 4.0s when I worked FT and DS went to FT DC. Then, he started wetting really heavy so I bough a bunch of Flip organics (which I adore). We stuff them in the 4.0s but I bought a few shells to try and really like them too. I would definitely recommend skipping the Flip stay-dry inserts and going with organic inserts, PFs or flats for what it's worth.

Flips with organic cotton inserts. I can't stand stuffing.

Do you stuff them with flats? Do you have any pics with a little one on with the flat stuffed? Thanks for your continued help with this decision.

Re: If you had to choose one... and why?

BG's are too bulky in my opinion. The mama I bought my flip from on here over a week ago still hasn't shipped it. So, I can't say how I feel about it yet. I'm super excited to try it out though!
