The Best Diaper Covers—Affordable, Durable, and Easy to Use

Pros:Very cheap, very durable, easy to care for.

Cons:Have to use pins/Snappi if using flatfolds/prefolds, but that's not that hard.

The Bottom Line: If you're using any diaper that needs a separate cover, I'd recommend these before anything else. They're much cheaper than most, but also very durable and easy to care for.


I’ve used cloth diapers with one or more of my children for four years now and plan to continue to use them with baby #4 due next month. I’ve used Dappi’s nylon pull-on covers for 3 1/2 of those years, and I would highly recommend them to anyone using flatfolds, prefolds, or fitted diapers. These are one of the cheapest cover options out there, but are of much higher quality than the vinyl ones you might see at Walmart.

Sizes
These covers are available in sizes newborn (up to 13 lbs), small (14-19 lbs), medium (20-25 lbs), large (26-31 lbs), and toddler (32-35 lbs). For our family, we have found the toddler size to be unnecessary. Our children don’t end up hitting 32 lb until they are 3 ½-4 years old, and are either already potty-trained, or at least wearing cloth training pants which are much less bulky. So, I’ve never had any need for the toddler size

Fit
These covers have elastic at the waist and legs. The elastic keeps a nice close fit without digging into the skin. I have occasionally had the liquidy poop of a breastfed newborn leak out in very small amounts, but that can happen with just about any diaper, cloth or disposable! However, these are not as form-fitting like a wrap cover. That's not a problem with a fitted diaper. With a flatfold or prefold, you will need to use diaper pins or a snappi to keep the diaper in place (which isn’t really a big deal). Technically, you can just put a flatfold/prefold in folded in thirds, but I won’t be responsible for the results!

Durable Nylon Material
As compared to vinyl covers that were falling apart within 9 months, these nylon covers have lasted for years. We purchased them in all sizes back in August 2003. Three and a half years later, with each size (other than toddler) being used by 2 children, they are all in good shape. I expect them to last for several more years and children.

Care
These are easily cleaned. Just toss them in with your diapers and wash, then machine dry. If a cover is just wet, it can also be rinsed out in the sink and will air dry relatively quickly. What I usually do is start each day with a new cover, and keep using the same cover as long as it only gets slightly damp from the diaper. These covers do not stain!!! I keep them in a dry pail and do absolutely nothing to stain treat them, and there are no stains on them. Overall, they aren't quite as bright white as they used to be, but that's more a slight faded look.

How Many Do I Need?
I have eight covers in each size, and I wash diapers every 2-3 days. Since I usually use each cover for multiple diapers before throwing it in the pail, eight has been enough for me. If you are going to want a new cover for every diaper and don’t want to rinse out between washings, then you’ll need more.

Cost and Summary
These can be purchased in two packs from http://www.babybestbuy.com for $3.99 for each 2-pack, plus shipping. So, if you wanted to order 8 covers in all 5 sizes, your cost would be $79.80 plus shipping. Considering that most other types of diaper covers are $6-$10 or more each, this is a great price, especially spread out over several children. With the low price, excellent durability, and ease of use, I wouldn’t recommend any other cover.
