My Flip Daytime insert review with pics
 
So:

I finally got them prepped. I washed and dried them three times. I measured them and they are now about 16.5 inches by 29.5 inches. They are very stretchy lengthwise though. edit : after being washed and dried 8 times they are now measuring at 16 x 28 inches.

Folded the long way they make a 16..5 inch pad, and folded the short way they make a 14.5 inch pad. edit: now 14 inch pad or 16 inch pad


Laid out after washing dry 3 times:

Folded the short way: 14.5 inches

Folded the long way 16.5 inches

SHort way Flip small setting:

Tucked in. (this barely works, I used a different fold for the small setting. Because these are so thin though, the bulk was minimal even tucked in or folded over.

Folded short way medium setting on Flip:

Tucked in: This works with a bit of tucking/pushing.

Flip Large setting with insert folded short way:

Tucked in: THis could work depending on how you like your flip inserts to fit. A little short when pulled up but totally doable at this length:

Flip insert folded long way with Large setting:

Tucked in: Requires a bit of pushing and making it fit:

Small setting from the side on my 9 month old: I fasten her waist loosely because she is a refluxy baby.

I hope all that helps! :)

They are also still SUPER soft and lay SOOOO gloriously flat.

I have one on my 9 month old right now and I will let you know how the absorbency holds up.

Eta: I also expect these to shrink up a bit more. The card I got with them recommended 5-7 washes and someone had personally underlined it! :giggle:

6 layers each way mama! :) (short and long)

But you could fold these so many ways besides what is probably the way you are supposed to fold them.

They are so versatile because they are so trim and flat with NO lumpy edges to work around. :)

Oh and just for fun I compared my (eta: Large)DR flat folded the short wide way to the Flip insert the short wide way. Almost identical width but the Flip insert is actually a little bit trimmer. :) I will try to get pics of that when I can. It's a busy day here!

Ohhh....very nice pics. Thanks for taking the time to do this for all of us. :) Large DR flat or small DR flat?

NO problem! I know I go crazy when new stuff comes out wanting pictures in minute detail and I always appreciate those who do that so I just tried to return the favor. :giggle:

Oh sorry, Large DR flat. I will fix that in my original post.
