A Birdseye flat, pad folded, is half the thickness of a flip organic on my babe.

I'll be interested if its as absorbant as the organic, but its pretty expensive to me.

I kid, I kid. But seriously, I cannot be held responsible for faces made on the ABC sales floor when a camera is present. I'm a ham.

Re: Flip is coming out with a new daytime insert!

Too funny! As for the insert, I love it and would definitely like to try one. I actually cut a dozen flats in half and sewed the edges to make inserts similar to this for my BG OS and Flips! Folding those can be a hassle but only because of the curling edges and wrinkles that you get with flats, so if these stay nice and flat AND mean less work for me, I'm in .

ETA: Oh man, I just saw that it's made of the same cotton as the organic inserts. That'd make them far more absorbent than my "half flats." Brilliant.

Love the idea, but want to read other reviews first before I pay that much for flats!

Awesome!!! I will most definitely be buying.

Well wait I wonder if they are snappi-able? I remember not being able to snappi a Flip organic when my DD1 was really small. It would not catch. But I may just get them and use pins anyway if not. If it's a flat but made out of that material I am in!!
