Covers and All in Twos #3: Blueberry Capri and Coverall Review

Blueberry Coverall and the Blueberry (formerly Swaddlebees) Capri 

I am pathetically excited about these diapers. I keep making excuses as to why I need to buy more of them, its possible that I may find the cuteness factor reason enough to make another purchase. Basically both are absolutely awesome, and probably are the cutest diapers I own (all of the diapers by Blueberry are equally as cute). It was hard to pick a print let alone which type of diaper cover to buy (or be like me and buy at least one of each).

Coverall: This cover comes in two sizes, the mini and the regular coverall. The Regular, which I purchased is a 10-40 pound cover size. So this means this will swallow your tiny baby whole and probably won't fit well until 15 pounds (in which case buy the Blueberry Mini). It has awesome double gussets for containing EBF runny poop and is cut so wide in the derriere that it is amazing over a snappied prefold or over a fitted diaper. I often run into needing to tuck in the back sides of a prefold but not with this ample cut beauty. The picture below is a prefold snappied, and even with as wide has I had it fit perfectly underneath. I daresay in cloth diaper terms it was actually quite trim. However, I primarily use these overnight over super stuffed fitted diapers and my super soaker son wakes up dry. I highly recommend them for someone who is new to the world of fitteds.

Capri: After having such a good experience with the Coverall I excitedly ordered a Capri cover  to try as well (any excuse to buy some more cute cloth right :). The Capri also comes in two sizes, the 1 and the 2. The first fitting 6-18 pounds and other from 15-35. I ordered the size 2 and I honestly don't consider it too much smaller than the Coverall.  It too is cut just wider than most covers and is great for over a snappied prefolds or over fitteds too (although maybe not the absolute biggest of fitteds like the Coverall). To me the biggest difference is that it is and All in Two system with  awesome flaps for holding prefolds or inserts laid in the cover (I have not purchased the Capri inserts I have only used trifolded prefolds). As you can see from the pictures I am able to have my son wear the Capri on one setting large than on the Coverall but he fits the same snap setting on the rise.

Ultimately, both covers are totally worth the money. They are quality made diapers that I know will last a long time (they sure will fit for a long time). But just remember if your baby is itty bitty or has tiny thighs you need the smaller sizes or possibly a different cover altogether. You see these thighs? Not tiny:)
