Review: Happy Flute OSFM Cover + VIDEO review!

Description: The Happy Flute OSFM cover is designed to be used over flats, prefolds and fitteds. It is made of a single layer of PUL with a wipe-able interior. Inside there are flaps at the front to keep an insert, trifolded prefold or padfolded flat in place.  The cover fastens with a double row of snaps around the waist and features double leg gussets. This is a one-size cover with three rows of rise snaps on the front to adjust the rise as baby grows.

First impressions: This cover is available in a range of prints and I chose this jungle print for review. It was a good choice as this is probably J's favourite cover in our whole stash - he adores all the animals! I like the colour coordinating snaps and edging and the soft, stretchy PUL. The stitching and snap placement is also neat. [Rating: 3.5/5] 

Ease of use: The flap on the front inside is designed to hold an insert/padfolded flat/trifolded prefold in place which makes the cover a little easier to use without having to fold and snappy a flat underneath. When the insert is wet, simply remove and use another insert. You can also choose to use this cover over snappi'd prefolds or flats or even fitteds. The interior is wipeable and so the cover can easily be aired out between uses. When the cover is soiled, simply place in your nappy bucket, ready for wash day. I have had no hassles with washing these and because of the single layer of PUL they dry super fast. This makes them ideal for hand washing too and I will definitely be packing these in for our December holiday roadtrip. [Rating: 4/5]  

Fit: This cover is very versatile and we get a great fit over a range of absorbent diapers underneath - from trifolded/padfolded prefolds/flats to snappi'd on to bulky fitteds. It is snug enough to hold an insert in place on my toddler (this might not be the case with a smaller baby though), yet the back coverage and stretchy PUL makes it a great fit over  bulky fitteds too. This cover seems about average size compared to other OSFM fitteds I've tried, with an average crotch width and I feel like it would fit a range of sizes well. At 21 months and 11kg, J is on the smallest rise with two rows of snaps showing at the waist. The elastics around the legs are snug, but not too tight and the double row of snaps at the waist makes for more adjustability around the hips/waist which is especially useful if your baby has a particularly small waist or chunky thighs.  [Rating: 5/5] 

Value for money: It's hard to beat this cover in terms of value for money. It is on the low end of the price range compared to other OSFM covers and given the great fit and performance, I think it's a great buy. [Rating: 5/5] 

Performance: We've had absolutely no leaks with this diaper - everything that is meant to be contained is contained. Obviously you always need to ensure you use an absorbent enough diaper underneath, but assuming you do, this cover won't let you down. Runnier poops were also perfectly contained.  [Rating: 5/5] 

Overall impression: The fit, price point and range of prints makes the Happy Flute OSFM cover a winner in my book and I would definitely recommend it as a stash filler.

So what works well for me and J, might not necessarily work well for you and your baby. At the time that these photos were taken, J was 21 months old and weighed approximately 11kg.
