Newborn flip?

I noticed on cotton babies they have newborn flip inserts now (stay dry). Has anybody used these? I like the stay dry inserts with econobum covers with ds now that he is almost two. I didn't like them when he was crawling because of the shifting. What covers do you use with newborn flip. I'm assuming the regular flip or econobum covers would be too big on a newborn wouldn't they? My babies were both in the 7 pound range when born.

Yes, I think a flip would be too big for a newbie. Have you thought about just getting some bg nb aio?

Flips aren't too big if you roll the back twice.

They worked on my baby at 2w but he was also 9lb at birth so not exactly tiny.

I haven't tried their stay dry only organic inserts and they are massive on smaller babies.

Re: Newborn flip?

I got flip organics when ds was about two months old and yeah they were huge. Still are bulkier compared to other things we have actually.

I wonder if there is a better way to hold the organic prefold to make it less bulky. It would be nice if they made the organic in an insert like shape. Similar to the trainer inserts! Hint hint BG!

You can fold the flip organics one way that makes it longer and another way that makes it a little shorter, but it is still going to be bulky on a newbie I have wondered though if you could in fact use the trainer inserts and fold them? I might have to try that because I don't like stay dry at all.

Re: Newborn flip?

Good question. I have a couple of their trainer inserts when we were using them as nighttime protection from dd.
