Swaddlebees (Blueberry) Capri Diaper Cover Review

Dearest Diapers is an online cloth diaper retailer out of Sacramento, California with a wonderful selection of cloth diapers and accessories. They were kind enough to send me a Swaddlebees Capri diaper cover to review. I am a Swaddlebees & Blueberry fangirl and I was ecstatic to finally try the Capri since I am such a big fan of the Blueberry Coverall and the Weehugger.

When I opened my package I was thrilled with the cover that I received. If I were to have chosen my own color/print it would have been the Owl print! Look how cute and fun it is:

It has great leg gussets, which is a feature that I love in a cover

Gussets in action:

I use fitteds and covers exclusively for nighttime diapering and this cover fits very well even over my Sustainablebabyish snapless fitteds and let me tell you, not all of my covers fit well over those! It also worked wonderfully when I had to use flushable inserts for a few days while we treated a rash that was starting to look yeasty. It was a little baggy in the butt with the flushable insert but it still worked wonderfully. Just like the Weehugger, it has flaps in the front and back to hold any type of insert or prefold you wish to use.

It has a great fit in the rear (this is over a bulky Sbish snapless)

And a nice, flat front. Over the Sbish snapless the rise snaps are all undone (they can be snapped down to the medium rise but the top panel fit better when undone) but over a typically shaped fitted like a Goodmama he is on the medium rise setting. He is 18½ months and almost 26 pounds.

As it turns out, the Capri is the best of both the Coverall and the Weehugger and that’s saying a lot with how much I adore both of those covers! In case you’re wondering how this cover compares to either or both of the others like I was, I have taken some comparison photos:

Capri and Weehugger on the left, Coverall and Capri on the right

These are all set on the medium setting and as you can see, the Capri is in the middle of these two in terms of sizing

I would say that the Capri is cut more like a Weehugger but slightly larger while the fabric is closer to the Coverall but slightly thicker. Since it isn’t cotton knit like the Weehugger it dries much faster. It fits over the bulkiest of my fitteds without a problem at all where the Weehugger would only fit over smaller or more typical fitteds. The Coverall is roomier but sometimes too roomy so I think the Capri is the perfect balance between the three.

  • Front and back flaps
  • Leg gussets
  • High-quality fabric and amazing colors and prints
  • Flat front for a nice fit
  • Fits over the bulkiest of fitteds and the trimmest of disposable/biodegradable inserts
  • Two rows of snaps

Overall, Swaddlebees does it again. I am in love with this cover. It has the best of my two favorite covers to make one, I daresay perfect cover! I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Swaddlebees Capri.

Dearest Diapers offers a great selection and free shipping! So shop away!

I keep hearing every baby is built different, and I feel like these options give more flexibility while getting into the swing of cloth diapering. (Especially for a first timer)!

  10. I don’t like pockets and I have been looking for a cover system that would fit a newborn instead of buying newborn diapers – I think this might be the one! I like that the size one can fit from 6 lbs! I would choose the pink color because I’ve always wanted a pink diaper. 🙂

  11. I love the owls, but I think I’d pick butterflies for my girly girl. thanks for the side-by-side comparisons of the other covers–very helpful!

  15. This is the best blog I’ve read so far about covers and it has the best pictures. As a newbie to cloth I’m finding it hard to understand the differences as most look the same on baby! Your pics really showed how the cover works so thanks! I would chose the Swirls design if I were to get one of these.

  16. We mostly used pockets with our first but I am starting to love covers. These look wonderful!!I would choose dinos or tweet.

  17. I cannot wait for my little guy to be a little bigger so he can start wearing cloth! This cover is very nice.

  18. I love the look of how this diaper fits! If I won I’d choose the Tweets print <3

  20. I like that this is a one-size cover. The only ones that I have are sized. I really like the swirls print!

  25. i lovce the owls and butterflies! i love how well the cover trimly fits over fitteds!

  26. I have a serious love for all things owl, so I automatically loved this on site. But when I read your review, I realized I would love it even if it wasn’t owl print! It would be so useful. I love when companies take two amazing products and combine them into one that just blows your socks off. This sounds like one of those products! And, of course, of all the prints they offer, my favorite is the owls!

  27. I love the idea of a cover with front and back flaps, but not fully lined so it can be wiped down easily and used again! I’d go with the Baby Blooms print.

    I would most definitely choose MONKEYS!!!!

  35. I love Rana of Dearest Diapers! She let me come over and shop a few days ago when I was in Sac visiting my family. I was totally geeking out at her amazing selection of fluff. I was lucky enough to get to check these out up close and they are some great looking diapers. I love the Dino print with snaps.

  36. I’ve just started venturing into the world of fitted diapers, and love them, but would love a couple covers so I can use them overnight! This cover looks perfect for us, especially since my homemade fitteds are super bulky. If I were to buy one, I would choose to get the Monkeys print with snaps!

  37. I seriously love these diapers. The owl print one is my favorite. It’s time to buy my little man some new fluff. Thanks for sharing.

  38. Not only is the shipping free from Dearest Diapers, but when I placed an order I was amazed at how quickly I received it — 2 days!

  39. We’re starting to realize that we like using covers a little more than pockets. It’s exciting!

    1. I am starting to like them a lot too. At first I only bought them as a nighttime solution since double stuffed pockets were starting to leak so I bought some fitteds. That has worked perfectly but now I have such cute covers that I hate to waste them for nighttime only. I may buy some more prefolds (I sold mine a while ago) or some flats to use here and there during the day since the fitteds are too bulky under clothes 🙂
