I got these covers because we were struggling with leaks from my 2 year old son’s diaper most nights, even with an insert. Ta-da! No more leaks! Very pleased.
Blow out after blow out
We tried multiple configurations of the snaps at multiple different weights and the diaper never fit. The elastic at the leg opening does not go all the way around the leg, so we had multiple leaks and blow outs at the leg openings. The elastic around the back was too tight and doesn't extend to the front. Even when there was a large gap at the front, it cut into my daughter's back. The polyester that holds the insert in place is quite large, so when my daughter poops, it ends up mostly on the polyester cover and not on the insert. We had to wash the cover and her clothes almost every time, defeating the purpose of getting covers.
I was pleased to purchase the Blueberry Capris, they have a wider variety of designs than some other places. My diapers came faster than was promised, so don't be surprised if the mail service gives you a farther date and you get your package way sooner. GMD was good at stating the packages might come sooner. Also I had some trouble with my diaper wash routine and GMD responded well, they also gave me some additional instruction form that was really helpful. I was doing some mistakes like washing natural fibers with synthetic diaper pads, all in all washing routine doesn't have to be that difficult and keeping it basic for me was best.
Definitely smaller than the coveralls
Karen notes and writes an excellent description about the capri being smaller than the coveralls (which are up to 40lbs) and deserves 5 starts for awesome customer service, heed her advice. The 4 star review is based on the product and my own fault (and vanity) for not realizing how much a 5 pounds difference makes since these only go up to 35 pounds. The Capri is definitely bigger thirsties size one (I was buying the capri to replace the thirsties size one thinking the Capri was almost identical to the coveralls.) I went with the Capri over the Coveralls bc there were cuter print options (vanity). I don't have a thirsties size two to compare fairly, but I was hoping to buy another cover that would fit over a greater span. I am left thinking I could have saved a few dollars and just upgraded to a thirsties size two instead of the Capri or better yet just purchased the coveralls which are my personal favorite- they are huge on a newborn but they get the job done so I don't mind. The capri prints are cute though and they bigger than the thirsties size one so I have useable covers that were needed to make laundry easier.
Disappointed with new design. Bring back the old style!
I had bought Blueberry coveralls a year back and I just fell in love. The fit was perfect on my chunky baby and it kept the poop and pee in perfectly. But... I recently bought the new style in the Capris and the fit was just awkward. It really gaped big time in the front and the front part is just awkward. I can't tell you if it does it's job perfectly or not. But the fit is weird and I much prefer the older binding style. If you're not concerned about major gaping in the front, then buy this. Otherwise, go for Sweet Peas or another brand like Flip.
