I'm thinking of adding a few flip covers and inserts into our stash. We have a lot of success with our BG 4.0s....any opinions on the flips? Thanks in advance!

I like to use flips over a snappied prefold. Its one of the trimmer options we have right now. I also have a few stay dry liners that I like, but they get bulky folded over to fit the small snapped down size. I like that I have the flexibility to put in a disposable liner for traveling, but we haven't actually done that yet.
Sometimes the stay dry liner will catch all of the ebf poo, and sometimes it gets on the cover, but I don't mind since DS generally only poops once or twice a day at this point. No matter how I fold and snappie the prefold, poo leaks out of that too. But nothing has ever leaked out of the cover.
Haley.Beth:I liked Flips until dd got mobile. Between the inserts bunching up when she started to crawl and her trying to escape during diaper changes, anything that wasn't one piece was impossible. I really liked them until then, though! I enjoyed reusing covers, it made my diaper bag slimmer. They fit very similar to the 4.0's.
That was my experience. I prefer GroVia's AI2s because the inserts snap in and stay put. I still use my Flips, but they're some of the last diapers I reach for.
