Flip organic night insert vs. Thirsties prefolds

How do these compare as far as trimness and absorbency?

Almost exactly the same, imo.

Really? I thought the absorbency/trimness was comparable between the daytime insert and the Thirsties. Was I confusing the two?

Yep. I would say that the Flip organic nighttime insert is slightly more absorbent but it is also a bit denser. Both are very nice products.

I think the thirsties & the flip are about the same but the thirsties wash & dry better. Also the flip organic gets stiff when soaked IMO

Re: Flip organic night insert vs. Thirsties prefolds

When I tried these with DD, she was fine in a flip and could pee right through a thirsties. Thirsties were SOOOO trim I wanted to love them, but they just weren't enough for my super soaker!

Were you using the prefolds or the inserts? The inserts are not even a comparison to a flip. Pretty sure it's the size 2 thirsties prefolds everyone is talking about

I was using these: http://www.thirstiesbaby.com/products/cloth-diapers/duo-hemp-prefold/ are those the right thing? And the Flip Organics.
