Flip OS Cover Review and Giveaway

Fits:  7-35 pounds

Price Per Cover:  ★★★★☆  This one of the most economical and versatile covers on the market.  If you are looking for something cheap, easy to use, and/or versatile, this is the system for you!  The cover alone retails for $13.95.  You can buy a package with one cover and one stay dry insert for $16.95 (competitive with most pocket and AIO diapers) or a package with one cover and one cotton organic insert for $19.95.  As you buy larger packages, the cost per diaper decreases and you could possibly by enough covers and inserts for two days for $100, providing that you would be able to use only 2-3 covers per day.  Very economical and the versatility is priceless!

Leaks:  ★★★★★  I did not have one leak with this cover.  I did trial this diaper with the stay dry insert, the organic cotton insert, and the disposable inserts and I did not have a leak with any of them.  This cover has form fitting elastic at the legs and back to ensure a tight fit and to contain messes and leaks.  Also, the inside of the diaper features contour flaps in the front and back to hold your insert and to stop leaks.

Fit:  ★★★★★  I don’t often give five star ratings for fit on a snap diaper or cover.  However, with this diaper, you get the perfect fit every time.  The spandex butterfly flaps are stretchy and there is elastic in the back and the legs so with all of that stretch and give, you can be certain that you will find the perfect fit.  The stay dry insert, the organic cotton insert, and the disposable insert are all very trim, do not add bulk, and do not change the fact that you can always find the perfect fit.  This is an OS cover with a 3 snap down rise feature on the front.  This ensures that from birth to 35 pounds, you can find the perfect rise in addition to the perfect fit around the waist.  This cover is the perfect blend of stretch and firm to give you a solid cover with a perfect fit.

Ease of Use:  ★★★★★  Normally, I would take a point off for snaps.  I just cannot do it for this cover.  This cover is SO simple and the two snaps on each tab are not hard at all!!  This cover is so versatile and so easy to use, that it warranted 5 stars even with the snaps!  Many diapers and covers have lost the star for snaps, but due to the stretchiness of the tabs and the flexibility of this cover, the snaps are not difficult at all!

Washing:  ★★★★★  The interior of this cover is made from laminated polyester which means that you can just wipe the cover, put a new insert in, and put it back on baby.  When it is time to actually wash it, it washes perfectly.  You just throw the cover in with your other diaper laundry, hang to dry, and it is ready to go again.  This cover dries in no time and after many washes, it still looks brand new!

Overall Performance:  ★★★★★  I cannot say enough about this cover!  It is amazing!  I love the versatility.  If you like the stay dry inserts of pockets, you can use the stay dry.  If you like prefolds, you can use the organic cotton inserts.  And if you are traveling or need to use non-cloth diaper safe cream, the disposable inserts are fantastic!!!  This cover also works over any brand of prefold, flat, or fitted if you do not wish to buy Flip specific inserts!  This cover is fabulous!

Total Stars:  29/30
