Waste of money
This cover started out as my favorite. My son was a couple of weeks old and I was in LOVE with this cover. Well, he’s now 5 weeks old and this cover won’t even last through a 3 hour nap before leaking and soaking his clothes and bedding. For such an expensive cover, I expected a LOT more. Bummi’s whisper wrap is much better, and available on Amazon. Outside of Amazon my favorite brand by far is Thirsties. Check out Nicki’s Diapers (google it) for much more selection and better prices. I got my money back on this Swaddlebees and bought two more covers (a thirsties and a prowrap) for two bucks more, and Nicki’s offers free shipping on all covers.
A bit stiff
This cover was kind of stiff and I didn’t like it. I’d prefer to use something softer so my daughter is comfortable playing. I think I used them once and sold them.
Great cover, and very soft
I love this cover. It is very cute, and nice and soft on the outside. So far, it has held messes in quite well. I have no used it for overnight yet though. I used it over my Swaddlebees fitted diaper and it fit great. I accidentally ordered one-size too large, but that’s ok because you can overlap the Aplix. I High recommend these 🙂
Better than Bummis
We have been doing cloth diapering for about 6 months now. It is not nearly as time intensive as one might imagine. In fact, if you hate shopping, as we do, throwing a load of diapers in the wash is much eaiser than running to the grocery with a baby.That being said, Swaddlebee’s are my second choice; we use wool covers for the most part. We have a variety of other covers for backup, car trips, and sometimes nights.The first couple of months we were changing diapers all day. Our daughter was a two diaper minimum…(she would pee as soon as a new diaper went on). The bummis were huge on a newborn and the swaddlebee’s have been a much better fit. (She has the baseball-in-the-tummy-chubby shape more than a skinny-baby shape.)The colors for Swaddlebee’s are great and they seem to be leak-proof. I haven’t had any fading. I just throw these in the wash with the diapers and line dry. They dry quickly and are ready to go. I also find that these tabs come apart less in the wash than the Bummis. This is annoying about the Bummis as the Velcro gets stuck to everything, including itself.[On a side note: If you are unsure about wool covers, they do have a learning curve. But this is the only real way to go completely organic/ natural with cloth diapering. Other “organic” covers are generally made of polyester fleece.]
Spend your money elsewhere
It LOOKS like a Bummis, but isn’t as leakproof and doesn’t hold up as well. Easy to use, though, and adorable colors.
