Well, on the first 2 tries she pooed within 10mins of putting the nappy on, so couldn't get a good test of absorbency! Containment was good though
3rd try, we got a good 3hrs with no leaks.
As for the fit, it comes up smaller in the rise than the V4 and flip, so on my lo it had to be fully un-popped. It's not as trim as the V4 or a stay-dry flip. Also, if the front soaker is stuck under bubba's bum, it pulls the front fabric inwards which can cause it to rub.
In conclusion, I won't be buying another freetime, it's not one of my fav nappies. However, it is now one of my stash staples and it's v pretty, (I hope bumgenius bring out the 'lovelace' design in flips)!
