But I haven't tried it other than this one time. I'm going to try a few more times to see it if was just a fluke or if it will reliably work for nights.
How old is your DD? How much does she weigh? I was wondering what size we would need to tri-fold.

Flips are 100% organic cotton.

Wonder if the imagine bamboo pfs are as absorbant as the flip org or thirsties hemps

They are more absorbent than either one and by far softer.

Flip Organics are 100% cotton knit - like a t-shirt material. I don't know if it is jersey or interlock, but it is a knit material, not a woven like birdseye.

My DD is almost 8 months old and I'm guessing around 20 lbs. The Size 2 fits nice in the middle Flip setting.

Once I wash diapers I will be trying the prefold at night again.

I remember Grovia or Nat Baby Company asking if testers thought a Grovia bamboo was night worthy on their facebook page. A lot of people said it was not quite night worthy, though very absorbant.

I haven't used GroVia's, but I'm sure its a great product. I do like the Imagine's better though for trifolding because of the shorter length. If I was going to pin snappi I'd go with GroVia because I believe they are the standard length. I heart my imagines.

My DD is 18lbs, very tall, 10mos. If I get the imagine bamboo pf's strictly for trifolding or inserts in pockets, do you think the mediums would be good on the middle setting in flips and bg pockets? Im debating those or the bamboo flats. Im thinking the bamboo flats will lay flatter but the folding, ahhh the folding

I use medium imagine bamboo prefolds on the middle snap rise of flip & BG 4.0. Perfect fit. Testing the imagine bamboo flats in there now. But yes the folding. I'll admit though after just a dozen, I was fast!
