My Flip review with pics!

I am a sucker for new products! I really wanted to try the new Flip system. Covers and inserts are my "thing." I started with gDiapers and prefolds. Very easy system and I love using them. Then I ventured into GroBaby and I love that system as well. I use BG3.0's for nighttime and I have a large stash of made by me fitteds.
So I jumped on the wagon and bought a day pack of the Flip Stay Dry.
They arrived yesterday! Wahoo.

I love the fit. I have a skinny boy. He is 9 months and 15lbs. No belly on the kid at all, he has a bit of leg chunk but not much. I love the fit on small gdiapers on him and I find Gro Babys bulky on him. Flip fit PERFECTLY on the smallest setting. I lke how you don't have to trifold the insert - just fold down the top. This gives Luke more absorbancy at the front where he needs it as well.

They fit great under pants, no leaking. We haven't used them over night and we haven't had a poop in them yet. So I can't comment on those.

It's too early to comment on if they are superior to gdiapers or Gro Baby. I don't mind snapping in the liners/inserts. But I like the system so far. I just don't like the lack of colours. Even if you got a green and a blue instead of 2 of the same colour - I find that a bit boring. I like a large colourful stash

Here are some pictures of Luke in his Flip!









I'd post these on facebook but then my hubby may see! haha and I don't want to risk the lecture on me having too many diapers.

Here are some pics of my skinny mini in his Flip!

Very cool!

It is a pretty blue color, though, so at least there's that!

Thanks for sharing pictures of your little cutie!

Re: My Flip review with pics!

I want to try the organics - I might order one down the road
I love how the stay dry really is dry! It wicks away the moisture great. And they feel so soft.
I know a lot of people hate microfiber - I don't really mind it. It's cheap and absorbs well.

Re: My Flip review with pics!

My son poops every 4-5 days now. It's nice - haha so I have yet to clean up a poop in these yet. I never get poop on the cover with gdiapers or gro baby. So it will be interesting to see how they hold up with the poop!

Re: My Flip review with pics!

If its not too much trouble would you mind taking a pic of what the flip looks like with the stay dry insert inside of it? I've seen pics of what the organic looks inside but I haven't seen a single pic of the stay dry!

I ordered one late last night when they posted the sale. I'm thinking about getting 2 more packages of them. It would be much much cheaper than getting another dozen BG 3.0's and then having snaps put on them!
