Fold down Flip covers for newborn?

Have you attempted or successfully folded down the front of Flip covers to use on a newborn?

I have six newborn covers. I would like 2-4 more, but I really don't want to spend the extra money if I can help it. So I'd like to use my one-size Flips as backups if needed.

I practiced folding down the front on Flip covers with velcro using a "newborn size" stuffed animal and it seems to fit, but it's not snug around the legs. I plan on doing a snug origami fold with my flat and using these Flip covers as a backup. Otherwise I might just get some of these cheap Dappi newborn covers.

I would get the newborn covers I couldn't get the flips to fit properly until my son was at least 2 months old. I tried them on stuffed animals too but my sons leg was half the size of our stuffed animals.

I was going to post this! Thank you! I have to admit that even though I had a new baby 4 months ago, I never remembered to try this out I had so many cute little newborn AIOs that I never even used covers! LOL! I wish I would have remembered so I could have posted pictures!

I got a lot of diapers to fit my dolls but the legs and such were still way way larger than my babies actually were. Flips were jsut way to big no amount of folding down helped unless your having a large NB I'd get some NB covers.
