Flip Cloth Diapers ~ my personal review

The Diaper:
Flip One-Sized diapers. They are a “diapering system” that has 3 different inserts that you can buy to use inside of the covers (stay-dry, organic cotton and disposable). Below is Ashlyn at about 11 months and 21 pounds in Ribbit.

What I like:

  • very trim diapers – almost as thin as a disposable on the bigger settings
  • super easy to use since there is no pocket to stuff; you just tuck the insert (which you fold down to the right size using the stiched on markers) inside of the cover.
  • the stay-dry inserts are incredibly absorbant
  • I love that there are disposable inserts available for the times that cloth diapering isn’t feasible. I haven’t tried them myself yet but I really want to find a pack!
  • they are an economical choice since you can buy a few covers and a bunch of inserts to use since you can reuse the cover until it gets dirty
  • haven’t had a single pooplosion in them!

Not a fan:

  • the inserts bunch between her legs, which doesn’t seem to bother her in the least but can lead to some messes on the cover (but we’ve never had a leak)
  • no cute patterns
  • limited colour selection – when I bought mine a few months ago, there was only Moonbeam (left), Ribbit (right) and Zinnia (bright pink). There are now more options but there still isn’t a great deal of selection

Overall Opinion:
I think the Flip diapering system is great for older babies and an excellent way to cloth diaper without breaking the bank. Because of the insert bunching, I’m not sure how well they would work with a new baby who has the super-messy breastfeeding poops but we’ll certainly try it out on our next (eventual) baby. I will definitely be purchasing more inserts and another cover or two!
