BumGenius Flip Organic

after loving the other bumgenius brands and having used eenee's that are similar in style to the flip i wasn't too impressed. i found that the insert moved around and the inside of the pul was touching bubs skin and rubbing.
the absorbancy of the inserts was pretty good tho but due to the style of the insert (a straight rectangle) i found that the cover became soiled from each poo. the shell was very quick drying which would be good for a cooler climate.
a better design to help keep the insert in place better and a softer material on the inside would make this nappy better for us.
I bought the non organic Flip Nappy which I don't think is available anymore as I can't find it on any website
This nappy was very good with having no leaks and the fit was fantastic
What I didn't like was that the PUL cover was up against my babies skin
The pads are just a straight rectangle that you replace with another one when that is wet.
I bought a day pack which had 6 pads and 2 covers, the idea is good but the covers really need a soft material cover on them so that it helps with the moisture against the babies skin
I have only used this nappy with the washable cloth inserts, I have not used the disposable inserts yet. I've used it from 4 kilos to 6.5 kilo, and am still on the first size adjustment.
The aborbancy of the cloth inserts are pretty good, and I haven't had any big leaks leave the nappy yet, but there has been some seepage just at the edge. The set up is for each cover you receive 3 cloth inserts, yet the cloth inserts do not contain a breastfed bub's poo, so you need to wash the covers quite regularly. The cloth inserts are just a big rectangle, essentially no different from a folded traditional nappy. Essentially, using this system is as effective as using a traditional cloth nappy folded in a rectangle, with a really good cover.
