My two flip covers, one hook and loop (Velcro) in the color noodle, and one snaps in the color grasshopper. I prefer snaps because at ten months old Tempe learned how to take the hook and loop off. So we don’t use it at night, as she sleeps I just a diaper over the summer that could be messy. But hook and loop has perks as it is very fast and easy to put on.
Both have the same flaps to hold the prefold or flip insert in place, which ever you choose to use. I prefer a trifolded prefold. The hook and loop has laundry tabs so it won’t eat other diapers in the dryer. They work fairly well,I have had them come undone before and attach to the fleece inner of a pocket diaper.
Here is a flip ready to go on baby with a trifolded prefold, see its tucked under the flaps at each end. And on the left is a 4.0 Bumgenius pocket. As pocket diapers go I love the 4.0 I like the flap at the back to keep the insert from touching baby, and I’ve used this 4.0 for a year and it still looks like the day I bought it!
Compared I really like both diapers equally. They Are both by cotton babies, just two different options. The 4.0 has a micro suede inner which some babies have a sensitivity to. So a flip with a 100% cotton prefold may be a better option.
The 4.0 is 17.95 and the flip is 14.95, so the flip may be a little easier on the wallet, though you will have to add in the price of prefolds. Both can be purchased at cottonbabies.com
