For anyone who wants to use the happy flute as found on Aliexpress.. I HIGHLY recommend them.. but just make SURE you don't wash them incorrectly. To avoid the seams coming undone, wash on cold and medium spin speed, and wash on warm. with medium spin speed for the main wash, and dry them on MEDIUM. Drying them on too high a temperature caused a PUL failure.

I had an incident of my bladder going haywire and two happy flutes successfully contained the ordeal with help from flour sack towels and bamboo/gauze insnerts. I really recommmend this system. The diapers themselves don't cost all that much.. they cost 22 a piece, and the manufacturer has offered me a discount. The only downside is it takes a bit longer for the orders to get here from China than they would coming from the United states, but really, its not that long. Some custom made diapers I have ordered have taken at least a month if not more to get made. The diapers I ordered from Aliexpress were here in 2 weeks! Not bad. Very good quality, EXTREMELY comfortable. THe waistband is very wide, and covers front and back. Just make sure you don't have he spin cycle or your wash tempature too high and dry them on a low setting. They work very well for me.
Flour sack towels are very cheap. less than 5 bucks for a package of 5 at walmart. If you fold them together and use a soaker pad made of a superabsorbent material inside. , they work very well with high absorbency with not too much bulk.
Peace out!
