How can I tell if the diaper is adjusted to fit my baby properly?

To observe fit, pick up your baby's legs after putting the diaper on and observe how it fits around the legs and bottom. Is it snug? If you can see air between the diaper and their skin, then you need to refine the fit. Trying a smaller snap setting and fasten the tabs snugly. When you child stands up, notice how the insert or soaker is positioned relative to the back elastic. If the insert or soaker is higher than the back elastic, lay your child down, release the tabs, pull the diaper slightly towards the front and refasten the tabs. If you notice that the front of the diaper is positioned low over your baby's thighs or that it is difficult to fasten the diaper around your baby's waist, try using a larger snap setting. This will increase the rise of the diaper and improve overall fit. Remember, babies change shape frequently as they grow up. You may have times when your relatively young baby is using their one-size diapers on the largest setting. The same child may be on the medium setting several months later due to increased mobility.

Are diaper rash creams ok to use with Flip?

Diaper rashes should be treated according to your physician's recommendations. If you need to use a rash cream, use a stay-dry liner between your baby's bottom and the diaper to prevent the cream from transferring onto the diapers. Rash creams containing fish oils will make cloth diapers smell fishy. These should be avoided.

Need extra absorbency overnight?

Try using 2 inserts and setting the diaper cover to be one size larger than you would for day time use.
