Flip adjustable diaper covers are made by Cotton Babies. They are lightweight and feature soft stretchy wings with double snaps. There are three rise settings to adjust as your baby grows, and a front and back flap that can be used to hold inserts in place. Flips are part of a hybrid or AI2 system that includes organic cotton and stay-dry insert options (plus a disposable insert I haven’t tried yet), but most families use them as diaper covers with prefolds and flats.

- Front and back flaps inside
- Three size settings via the snap-down rise (8 to 35 pounds)
- Stretchy wings with knitted waist tabs
- Made in the USA
- Retail price is $14.95 for solid colors (and $16.95 for prints)

I first used Flip covers with baby Samuel (8 years ago), and they’ve stayed in our rotation since then.
The first newborn I cloth diapered was Erik, but at just 7 pounds and change, he was pretty skinny. Out of curiosity, I tried Flips on him but they gaped open at the leg openings, allowing #2 to escape (photo below). This is not uncommon at all with one-size diapers. The rise was also very high, so I set them aside for later.
The plus side to Flip’s generous sizing is that it can easily last until potty training, and gives excellent coverage over even the bulkiest fitteds and prefolds.
Here’s my newborn, Camille, at 10 pounds. They just now started fitting snugly around her legs.
Here’s the fit on an older infant. Susanna was about 12 months in these pictures.
Here’s 2-year-old Mary Kate:
In the past, we had some issues with the elastic in our Flip covers loosening after just a few months. Cotton Babies replaced them promptly, thanks to the great bumGenius warranty. Since that time, we haven’t experienced any more problems with elastic. It might have had something to do with the fact that our older covers were made in Egypt, rather than the USA.
As a Cotton Babies product, Flips fall under the same warranty which covers snaps, lining, hook & loop closures, elastic and waterproofing for 1 year from date of purchase. The warranty is for the original buyer and you need a proof of purchase to claim. Leaking, odor and normal wear and tear are not covered.
