Diaper Covers!


Thirsties Duo Wrap diaper covers - Size 1 - This cover is getting a lot of use.  It's currently one of three covers that we're using daily over our fitteds.  In this pic, it's snapped down as small as it'll go over a Kissaluvs Size 0 fitted.  It fits well and so far we haven't had a single leak.  The gussets work well to contain everything inside the cover.  

Bummis Super Brite, Extra Small

Bummis Super Brite cover - Extra Small - I've posted about this one before, but I'm doing it again since this post is all about covers.  The XS fit our little guy perfectly from day 1 and at 3 weeks and 9 lbs, it still fits pretty nicely.  This cover is also in our daily rotation and I don't think it's ever leaked. 

Thirsties Cover - Extra Small

Thirsties Cover - Extra Small - This cover is their original sized cover...not the Duo Wrap.  If you compare the Duo photo at the top to this one, you can see the XS fit is very similar to the Duo fit snapped down to the smallest setting.  Great cover, dependable, started to fit really nicely around 8 lbs, though it didn't leak when he was smaller.  This photo was taken yesterday when he's a little over 9 lbs.  


Bummis Super Whisper Wrap - small - long the standard in cloth diapering, the Bummis Super Whisper Wrap is durable and dependable.   We've sold these covers at Cloth Diaper Outlet for about 3 years even though I didn't like them on my daughter (who is now 5 years old).  I do, however, like them on Colby.  The fit is great, the width is roomy enough for bigger fitteds, and the velcro is top-quality.  The only thing I don't like is that you can't wipe out the cover.  After a few uses, it really needs to be washed.  

I think this concludes my trial of covers.  I do have other covers in our stash.  Some are too big (onesize covers mostly) and some are part of a hybrid system, like the Flip cover, and thus are reviewed elsewhere.

I love Thirsties too and found both duo and one sized are great fits.

Funny - I didn't like the Bummis on my girl but they fitted much better on my boy - I wonder if this is true for others?

I love both the Thirsties duo wrap, and sized cover on my newborn daughter. I also really love my swaddlebees capri size 1 cover and my newborn Rumparooz cover. I have 3 Bummis super whisper wraps in size small that I am planning to use next, and really hope they fit her!
