Yes, I know it’s not Friday yet, and I’m talking about cloth diapers – I try to limit myself to Friday’s for CD topics otherwise I’d go on all day, and this isn’t necessarily a CD-only blog! But I have a nice giveaway planned to begin on Friday (hint, hint!), and I wanted to get back to my readers on my experience with Flip Disposable Inserts.
On our recent camping trip, I wanted to continue cloth diapering – but what’s a CD mom to do when you’re in the woods with an outhouse and a pile of dirty inserts? I turned to my stash of Flip Disposable Inserts, of course! We used Flip Disposables 90% of time (chickened out for the 4 hour drive and the overnights, but now that I know how the Flip Disposables work, I am confident enough to try them 100% next time).
And the results are in:
- They are just as soft and convenient as my cloth inserts
- No leaks, no mess, no fuss – didn’t even snap down the diaper cover to a smaller size (I have a bit of a chunky-monkey son!)
- No pile of laundry to do when we arrived home at 10 pm (well, just the covers!)
- Just a tiny bag of trash – and don’t forget the Flip Disposable Insert biodegrade, unlike regular ‘sposies
All in all, a good experience, and I’m excited to have 3 more packs waiting for the rest of our summer fun trips. One tip – I was so excited about not having laundry, that I used up ALL my diaper covers, so it threw my laundry routine off since I only had covers to wash and not diaper inserts. So next time I am going to hold one diaper cover in reserve so the baby can get back to cloth diapers while I launder the other covers.
