Set on lowest rise setting over a small yellow edge prefold diaper. Newborn orange edge prefolds are most often used at this rise setting, but as baby gets older, the small prefold provides more absorbency.
Newborn prefolds are used the smallest rise setting but sometimes novice or small can be used at the smallest rise setting. Small or novice prefolds fit under Flips on the medium rise setting also. Usually intermediate or medium red edge prefolds are used at the largest (unsnapped) rise setting but sometimes, depending on baby's shape, you can use either of those (intermediate blue or medium red edge) on the medium rise setting, but most commonly those are used at the largest rise setting. Some babies need the absorbency of size large prefolds but they are too long to trifold into Flips at the largest rise setting but they can be smooshed down in there or fastened but the brown edge size large prefolds really are longer than fits into a Flip when trifolded. It is ok to fasten prefolds under Flips if you want to do that, but the design of the cover is made for trifolding so that can be the best way to use them. Baby shapes vary so this is a just a generalization of the fit.
Which size prefold to buy if pad-folding? At largest rise setting Intermediate blue edge fits great. Medium red edge can work too. At middle rise setting Novice, Small and Intermediate work. At smallest rise setting Novice and Small work best, though Newborn also works. Size Large prefold is too big for this cover.
Great trim fit. Mirror shown over a birdseye flat diaper.
Babies grow at different rates. Often babies get wider before they get taller. Flip has a soft and flexible fit without "digging in" as some hook and loop style covers might, for comfort as baby grows and changes shape. Stellar Blue shown on a 99% percentile 22 pound baby who is 6 months old.
