    Capri Newborn Diaper Cover and Blueberry Mini Coverall Newborn Diaper Cover Comparison Review

    Blueberry makes both the Capri newborn diaper cover and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper cover. While putting together a small newborn stash for my son last year, I purchased one of each to test and review. How do the two similar newborn covers compare?

    Price

    The Capri newborn diaper cover currently retails for $16.95 and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper cover for $15.95. The only significant difference between the two covers that accounts for the price difference is the “stay-put” flaps on the Capri that help keep inserts securely in place. I consider both newborn diapers more expensively priced compared to other similar brands of covers.

    Prints

    Blueberry currently offers both the Capri and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper covers in almost a dozen colors and prints each. Many of the prints and colors overlap between the two styles, with only a few limited to one cover. In terms of variety, I rate both the Capri newborn diaper and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper cover very highly.

    Design

    The Capri newborn diaper cover is a smaller version of the Capri one-size cover, and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper cover is a smaller version of the one-size Blueberry Coverall. Both covers are made in the USA from 100% polyester. The Capri is recommended for babies between 6 and 16 pounds and the Blueberry Mini Coverall for babies between 6 and 18 pounds. Double leg gussets on both diapers help contain wetness and messes, and both covers fit over a variety of diapers and inserts including fitteds, prefolds, contours, and flats and can be wiped clean for multiple uses between washings.

    Because I prefer snaps, I purchased the Capri and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn covers with snap closures. The covers also come in hook and loop closures. For both versions of both diapers, the torso features three rows of two rise snaps that adjust the diaper to small, medium, and large rise settings. For the snap version, the newborn covers feature two rows of eight waist snaps with two rows of one snap on the hip flaps.

    The only different between the two newborn covers is that the Capri features “stay-put” flaps on the interior of the diaper that help keep inserts securely in place. The Blueberry Mini Coverall lacks the flaps. Otherwise, the design of the two diapers is nearly identical.

    Laundering

    Because I am rather lazy in the laundry room, any new diaper that I add to my stash must fit into my current laundry routine. Both Capri newborn diaper and the Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper easily fit in my routine. Between washes, I keep the dirty covers in a diaper pail with the rest of my cloth diaper laundry. On laundry day, I wash my Capri and Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn covers with the rest of my diapers using a warm wash with detergent and OxiClean followed by two cold rinses. I then allow the cover to air-dry on my drying rack in front of a fan. The polyester material dries very quickly.

    Note: Using OxiClean or other additives on the Capri or Blueberry Mini Coverall covers may void the manufacturer warranty.

    Performance

    As with the other covers in my stash, I primary use a Buttons Diapers or Best Bottom Diapers insert in my Capri and Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn covers. The small insert fits perfectly inside the medium and large rise settings of the covers. I also used my Imagine flats in the covers on the smallest rise setting when my son was first born. I therefore rate both newborn covers very highly in terms of versatility.

    My son weighed 7 pounds and birth but could wear the Capri and Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper covers on the smallest waist and rise settings. The diapers fit snuggly, so I agree that slightly smaller babies down to 6 pounds could wear the covers without any problems. My son could still wear both covers comfortably on the largest rise setting at four months. The Blueberry Mini Coverall runs a little bigger, so I agree with the 18 pound recommendation for the Blueberry Mini Coverall versus the 16 pound recommend for the Capri. Both covers fit the average infant well past the newborn stage at two months.

    I consider my son a fairly heavy wetter, but the Capri and Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper covers work on him both day and night. When wearing a high quality diaper, he goes two to four hours between diaper changes during the day and up to 12 hours overnight (although usually only 9). I particularly appreciate the double leg gussets on the covers, which help form a snugness around the legs to prevent moisture leaks.

    The double leg gussets of the Capri and Blueberry Mini Coverall newborn diaper covers also help to effectively contain the messes associated with exclusively breastfed newborn poop. Despite some of the nastiness that my son has thrown at the cover, I have not had any problems with poop leaks or blowouts.

    If I had to chose only one of the covers, I would pick the Capri because of the “stay-put” flaps on the inside of the cover, which help keep inserts tucked securely in place, preventing the insert from peaking out the front or back of diaper, which can cause wicking and leaks. Because the “stay-put” flaps help keep inserts in place, very little poop gets on the actual cover as well. My personal preference is for the Capri, but, other than the lack of the interior flaps on the Blueberry Mini Coverall, both newborn covers perform almost identically.

    Final Verdict

    Among higher end newborn covers, I highly recommend both the Capri and the Blueberry Mini Coverall. At $16.95 for the Capri and $15.95 for the Blueberry Mini Coverall, I consider both covers priced on the higher range. However, both covers are made in the USA from high quality materials that minimize irritation for sensitive skin, are available in a wide variety of colors and prints available, and feature double leg gussets effectively contain wetness and messes with a snug fit around the legs. The two main differences between the two covers is that the Capri fits babies between 6 and 16 pounds while the Blueberry Mini Coverall fits between 6 and 18 pounds. The Capri also features stay-put” flaps on the interior of the cover help keep inserts in place, both preventing leaks and protecting the cover from poop. I personally prefer the Capri because of the interior flaps, but I highly recommend both newborn covers to any parent putting together a newborn stash.
