The Flip hybrid diaper system by Cotton Babies

I am now the proud owner of a Flip day pack by Cotton Babies, thanks to a very generous mama I recently met online! For those of you unfamiliar with the system, the stay-dry day pack includes: 2 Flip one-size covers (ion your choice of colors and closures), 6 one-size stay dry inserts and one pack of disposable inserts. Now I will say right off the bat that my favorite diaper so far is the BumGenius 4.0 also by Cotton Babies, so I was anxious to try out this system. I love how stretchy the tabs are, just like the BumGenius pockets, I always get a perfect fit on G. No ebf blowouts so far, so I don't know how they hold up to those yet, but I love how trim they look!
If these continue to impress me, I think these will be come my go-to diaper when I need something that fits better under those "special occasion" outfits. I love that the inserts are super absorbent microfiber with a stay-dry cover, and that they really do cover the whole inside of the cover! I also love how Cotton Babies widened the insert and seems to have thinned it a bit, instead of the narrower and thicker insert with the BumGenius pockets. They work great in the pockets, don't get me wrong! It's just nice to have a wider option to hold up better in just a regular diaper cover, so you can re-use it, unlike a pocket where you have to wash it after one wear. You'll be hearing an update once I know how these hold up to blowouts and with a disposable insert.
Even Venus seems impressed :)


We had our first (ah hem...) poopie :) lol
I'm very pleased with these liners. It is wide enough to hold most of the poop, but a little gets in around the gussets. I will say though that it is very easy to wipe up with a wipe and reuse the cover. But I suppose that's why the pack comes with 2 covers lol. I did do a quick load of laundry, and the liners are about the same thickness as the BumGenius one size liners, but when paired with this system they still seem trimmer. I'm very happy with this system, and have a very good feeling that I'll be purchasing more :)
