Flips were the first covers I ever tried. I didn't understand for awhile that they were covers because people kept using the term "hybrid." You can purchase disposable inserts for Flips for travel or out and about. I like that they are a more economical way to get Bum Genius prints. They have the signature Cotton Babies stretchy tabs, which helps me to get a good fit on my baby. This diaper cover does not have double leg gussets, which seems to be almost an industry standard at this point. I don't find that it impacts the performance of the diaper. I have used the Flip over the day time insert, night time insert, prefold, Sbabyish fitted diaper, Work horse diaper, and a few more all with great success. This is a great way to test out Bum Genius.

I have tried 6 brands of covers and some pocket diapers, my favorite ended up being these flip covers with GMD flats, these covers have never leaked and I'm looking to buy a few more now that I know what's the best, oh and the elastic on some well most covers would cut into my babies legs but these don't, their tight enough to not leak but not so tight that it's cutting off circulation, I love flip diaper covers hopefully they come out with a lot of new girl prints soon

This cover fit my newborn at 7lbs 3oz, the first "one size" cover to fit my baby, they also fit my huge toddler great and never leave red marks. I love the flaps on the front and back to keep inserts or prefolds in place and you can stuff these covers with anything. I love them! By far my favorite cover!

I have lots of these covers and really like them for the tiny infant stage. They fit great. I like to use small fitteds or prefolds under these covers. They don't fit bigger toddlers from what I have found and you can't put a big night time fitted under them. Some flip covers that I have had for over 5 years are still holding up great. No cracks in the pul. I did have to replace the elastics once but I expected that since I have used them for 5 years non stop on three different children. I do have other covers that I reach for more often during the toddler stage just for better fit. I personally think the price is just a bit high compared to other good quality covers but it is worth it.

I have 4 of these covers in my rotation. These are good covers with a nice, trim fit. I trifold a prefold in these & the inner faps in the front & back keep my prefold in place. These are well made & the snaps are strong. The fit & rise are just like the bumgenius pocket diapers which I really like.

I already use several of the BG 5.0 and the freetimes. I love that the flip cover has the same BG diaper fit and I can reuse the cover with any insert of my choice. It makes for a wonderfuk choice during the day when I dont want to have to go through a ton of pockets and AIOs. We can take these out and about, and dont experience leaks. However I dont like using them at night. Id much rather use a pocket for the stay dry barrier. However these are a great bang for your buck.

I have Flips and Rumparooz. These are way trimmer than the Rumparooz but you lose quality. My baby would leak out the edge or the cover would feel damp on the outside. Never had that problem with Rumparooz. Flip has cute patterns and if trim is what you want this is it. But we've had plenty of issues also.

My newborn is 4 weeks old and so far these top my best bottom and thirsties covers. They are soft and after learning the jelly roll on the prefolds do not leak breastfeeding poo or urine. They fit the best without gaps and uncomfortable wrinkles. I also prefer the vertical snaps opposed to the two horizontal snaps. I've washed them several times and they still look like new and do not stain. The only thing I wish they had is a double gusset. I will be ordering a few more to complete my stash.

I really love the flip diaper system, you can easily wipe the interior clean, and it fits very well on the baby. I tried a few others, and some have elastic so tight/short it looked painful to put on. The flaps allow easy tuck in of whatever your absorbent material is, I used Flour Sack Towels, and small sized prefolds in mine and it contained everything very well.

I love that these covers can be used with any type of insert, flat diaper, or prefold. The cover fit well on my baby when I first received it, but after only a three wearings, the elastic stretched out. I'm not sure why since we do not use a dryer and all of our diaper covers are dried flat. I wish the elastic was higher quality, at least in the diaper I received.

I've been cloth diapering just over a year now and I have to say Flips are my absolute favorite diaper cover! I've tried many brands and nothing is as high quality and ease of use. If I had to rely on other covers I've used I don't think we would have stuck with cloth diapering.

I've been so happy with my BG diapers that I thought I would give these a try when we decided to use fitted diapers for overnight. These are a great value - they are sturdy, they hold up well, and we are very happy with the coverage they provide over a fitted diaper!

We used these with our baby from about 4-6 weeks old while we were renting pre-folds, when my baby was about 7.5-8.5 pounds. We found that the Sweet Pea newborn covers, while double gusseted and still seemed to fit, were leaking. These covers ended up being perfect and we didn't have a single leak while we used the Flip covers.

These are awesome covers I just started my cloth diaper journey and these are easy to use even for a newbie. The inner flaps help inserts stay in place so changing diapers are not difficult.

Love Love Love the Flip cover. Its very trim and looks so cute on my baby's bum! I have used many types of inserts within the flip - they all work great when tucked under the rim. I re-use the cover until a poopy diaper, then I wash. Its great at holding messy and wet inside.
I always line dry to preserve the elastic. Snaps are a must - I am so over aplix/velcro! I like that they pretty much have stopped even making the flips with velcro.
