Currently the Flip is my go-to diaper. I use the Stay Dry reusable inserts and find that this saves us so much money. Flip also offers the 100% organic inserts as well for babies with sensitive bums. I own approximately 12 covers (most of which I received off my baby registry). The rest I bought off cottonbabies.com at second sales. I do like the flip diaper system because of it's versatility with inserts. You can use different brands of inserts in the cover itself, not necessarily "the Flip". For example, you can use walmart pre-folds inside the covers with no problem at all! This will increase your cost savings tremendously!
I also like that multiple inserts can be put into these diapers at the same time to increase absorbency. You can also add a hemp or bamboo doubler to help as well! With all of the inserts, these diapers still look fairly trim, especially with the disposable inserts!
The waterproof cover can often be used multiple times before being washed as long as it has not been soiled with poop (or a lot of pee). If the baby just pees, I wipe the cover down and hang it to dry and grab another cover. Then during the next change, I use the cover that is drying! I love a diaper that multi-tasks!
