Actually, I don't think I used Flips on my girls as newborns - their legs were too skinny! But they worked great from around 3 months. I used them with DD2 until she PT'd at 2.5 and I'm using them with my nearly 10 month old too. A friend of mine had a baby who was 9 lbs 7 at birth and chunky so she was able to use Flips with him straight away.
I prefer the organic cotton insert to the stay dry because I prefer natural materials. But both would be bulky on a newborn TBH.
Mothercare Smart Nappies work in a very similar way to Gnappies now I think of it and are sized too so they wouldn't be too big on a newborn. They are not the prettiest nappies (and they only come in white) but I was given a few preloved and have found them a good workhouse option for DD2.
