Tiny Tush OS Diaper Cover Review and Giveaway

Fits – 8-35 pounds

Price Per Cover:  ★★★★☆  This cover can be bought directly from Tiny Tush for $14.95.  This is a great price for a OS cover!  For this price, you are getting a very sturdy and well constructed cover!

Leaks:  ★★★★☆  I did encounter a leak or two around the waist band.  As I have mentioned numerous times, my daughter is very skinny and sleeps on her belly.  These two things combined lead to leaks with many diapers, this wass no exception.  This diaper does feature elastic leg gussets which hug baby legs and contain messes there as well as back elastic to hug and fit baby in the back.

Fit:  ★★★☆☆  This cover does have a nice fit everywhere except in the front waist.  I could not find a nice fit around the waist on my skinny 20 month old.  One snap was far too loose and the next was far too tight.  This cover is very sturdy material, but this also means that it is not as stretchy as some other covers and affects the fit a little.  It also really confused me that the crossover tabs are backwards from many other diapers.  The crossover is usually on the right, this one is on the left. This diaper also features a 4 snap down rise on the front to adjust the rise for different age/size babies.  I do feel that this cover may truly fit at 8 pounds as the manufacturer states as it seems to have a lower rise on the smallest setting than other diapers/covers.  This however, is my guess/opinion as I do not have an infant to try this on.

Ease of Use:  ★★★★☆  As I said above, I could not find a perfect snap waist setting on this cover, that was very frustrating and lead to leaking.  Also, the crossover tabs being backwards seemed strange.  If this was the only diaper/cover that you used, you would get used to it.  But using other diapers/cover, it is strange to have one backwards from the rest.  As for the cover on its own, the cover is easy to use, you can simply wipe clean between uses, and the fabric is very sturdy and I feel this cover would last through many washes and even multiple children.

Washing:  ★★★★★  This diaper cover looks 100% the same as it did the day I received it.  There is absolutely no wear or tear on the diaper and it seems to be holding up perfectly to washing a wearing.  The diaper is laminated polyester so you can simply wipe it between uses and then when soiled throw it in with the rest of your diaper laundry.

Overall Performance:  ★★★★☆  While this wasn’t a great fit for my daughter, I do feel that this is a quality constructed cover and would stand the test of time!  It is well made and waterproof! 

Total Stars:  24/30
