Since I know you love the soft organic cotton just as much as I do, I know you will love them!

That is great to hear. My 7 month old is still EBF but will probably start solids soon after we get them.

My ds still has really mushy poops and frequently goes during nap or first thing in the am. I've been folding the flat around him like an angel wing fold with a second flat as a doubler and then just using the cover to secure instead of a fastener. It has kept his covers totally clean surprisingly, which is something I could never accomplish even with snappied prefolds. I think because they are such a dense, stretchy fabric they just stay put easier.

Can you post pics of how you do this?

Oh man, he is SUCH a wiggle worm. I will try though! Pretty much I just put it on like an angel wing fold and wrap the wings around to the front and hold with one hand. Then I use the other hand to bring the front of the cover up and fasten one side, and then I fasten the other. I hold on to the wings literally until I am closing each side and you can reach in through the top and pull it a little snugger if needed. Usually it stays nice and snug without needing to readjust. It used to be fairly common back when prefolds and covers were what most people used to use a snug fitting cover instead of a snappi/pins. Clear as mud?

Yes I think so
DS is on strike today from wearing any diapers & it is bugging the crap out of me! I haven't been able to try the new flip flats
Can't wait for new little man to get here - a few months of a baby that will hold still for diaper changes!

I don't think any retailers have them yet, but Cottonbabies has them as part of the "daypacks" which is 2 covers and 8 inserts, or they sell them separately in a 3 pack
Quite a few retailers have them now actually. I know Sweet Pickles does and Abby's Lane gets them in this week.

Good news! I'm out of the diaper buying loop and didn't know who had gotten them already since I am not on FB anymore. I ordered right away and the only option was CB.

I got mine from cotton babies too.

Just pad folded on into a sandy's for night time.

Had one pad folded into a grovia cover for over 2 hours but no review since he didn't even pee in it!
