Re: My Flip Daytime insert review with pics

I am liking mine padfolded in a softbums cover. I don't like the bunching you get in a PUL cover but I find they stay put in the fleece lined softbums and they are so so trim and flexible, wash and dry awesome and stay super soft.
I find them absorbant enough on my baby girl but she is a pretty light wetter for the most part. I never would have trusted just one on my son though he would have soaked it in half a pee.

Just wanted to update after having these since they came out. I still love them BUT for padfolding in something like a Flip, the Flip is too wide and the insert too trim and I get more bunching than I feel comortable with. I have the same issue with the stay dry inserts too. I use padfolded birdseye flats with some bunching but NOT like this. Baby thong is a pretty accurate description.

However, I LOVE these for my pockets. They make great pocket stuffers by folding them in fourths so they are thinner. SUPER absorbent and flexible and trim. Also I like to use them laid in a pocket used as a cover because then the fleece keeps them from bunching so much and there is no exposed PUL. These are a great alternative to MF and trimmer and more absorbent than a padfolded flat for pockets. So, I still love them, just not for the use they were originally intended.

Thanks so much for updating!!!

I have been using mine for DH for about a week. They are working SUPER for us...in fact, I just ordered another daypack for him which should arrive tomorrow at my parents'...which is where we are headed tonight. It's spring break so he'll be taking care of the little ones more than usual and he likes these.

As for the bunching, it's working pretty well for us to padfold but then spread it out enough to cover all the PUL. Plus I make sure the rise is the right size for DD, and voila, they are working great for us! BTW, DD is 21 mos old and on the second rise snaps. I have also used these in my wool wraps and LOVE the trimness of them!!

I'll keep updating now, too, if that's ok...I don't want to take over your thread! I appreciate your help so much!!

Hah please keep updating. This is everyone's thread!

That could be part of the problem for us. My dd is a freak of nature and at 11 months old the smallest rise setting on the flip is actually a little big. She has got the tinies shortest rise I have ever seen on any of my babies. So even snapped all the way down, its still not as snug of a fit.

Glad you are liking yours! I think they really are great.

Are these Snappi-able? Or pin-able? I feel like someone posted that they were...

Yes I have snappied and boingoed them. I fold them in half and then use them like a prefold. Probably the trimmest cloth diaper on the planet when used that way.

Re: My Flip Daytime insert review with pics

I really want to try these but I keep talking my self out of them - my dd is 22 months, average size and does not wet like crazy but would one of these be too small for her? A GMD small yellow edge flat is too small but two are too big... We use medium prefolds but I would love to try these. What do you think?

Re: My Flip Daytime insert review with pics

I the new organic inserts. We've had some bunching but not too bad. I just padfold and make it wide and kind of fan the back out. My DD is 14 months and busy busy but the bunching doesn't bother her at all.

I've pad folded these in a few Echo covers and they are a nice combo IMO.
