I want the good, bad, and the ugly.  Don't hold anything back.  I currently have a 2 month old boy but I don't want to keep buying diapers that don't work.

I liked the Flips on the smaller settings. They seemed to work well for DS, and the suedecloth does a good job of keeping him dry. The inserts are easy to use, and the PUL wipes clean easily.

 

On the downside, I haven't been as impressed on the larger settings. I find that the inserts curl up when they're not doubled over, and then wetness and scratchy microfibre is touching DS' skin. I could put the doubled-over side on the tummy at the medium setting, but I find that makes the cover not fit as well. Plus, he doesn't do well in exposed PUL (or any PUL really) so I barely use my Flips now. They're a great concept and I wish they worked better for DS.

 

On the up side, they're relatively cheap and you could buy one and see how it does.
