Sizing the Flip One-Size Cloth Diaper System is simple – just adjust the front of the cover using the 3×3 snap arrangement on the front of the cover.
The bottom row of snaps is for the small setting. The middle row of snaps is for a medium and fully unsnapped, your cover is sized for a large.
Children change in shape as they grow. You’ll probably find yourself unsnapping to either accommodate your baby’s higher rise or enlarging thighs. So your six-month-old may need to be fully unsnapped to accommodate chunky thighs. But your eighteen-month-old may be back on the medium setting because he has thinned out after learning how to walk (run)!
When adjusting Flip cloth diaper covers to fit your baby, you may need to use one snap setting smaller than you would normally use on your bumGenius branded products.
There isn’t a lining to add bulk, so Flip cloth diaper covers will accommodate more stuffing and larger children! This also means that you may prefer to snap your covers down by one snap setting to get that good, snug fit around your baby that you enjoy in bumGenius branded products. This will be especially true using ultra-trim inserts like Hemp Babies or the Flip Disposable Inserts.
Let us know if there is anything we can do to help!
do these questions every get answered?
How do I correctly size the organic insert? Also, will the flip be coming in more colors?
I am having fit issues. My 17lb. 9 month old daughter is the middle setting. The diaper is not getting tight enough around her legs. I tried snapping it closed a little more which helped around the legs, but then she had a red mark around her back because it was too tight. I have also tried snapping it down to the smallest setting, but is way too small in the rise. Help! I think I would really like these if I could get a better fit. Also, we are having trouble with the liners bunching as well.
I was having trouble with the stay dry and the disposable liners bunching, but that suggestion solved my problem. I put my 16 month old, 24lb son on the smallest setting and now everything is working great!
