Believe it or not, Booroi covers are the first covers I have reviewed that are side snapping. This is not the only unique feature of the Booroi covers, however, as you will immediately notice their 360 degree inner leg gussets. These serve as leg gussets, added protection from leaks in the back and font, and lastly, a sort of pocket for your prefold or inserts. It is designed to be used with prefolds, however, can be used as a cover over fitteds, contours or with inserts. Just make sure that the fabric touching baby’s bottom is suitable (no microterry).
To use with multiple changes, wipe down the inside of the cover, let it air out between uses and wash on laundry day or when soiled. The only downside of this prefold cradle is that it will soil more easily with BMs than other covers on the market, because it covers more surface area, but you should not have much of an issue with formed stools. I liked how the caps of the side snaps were covered with fabric so that only the softest fabrics were against my DD’s skin and the fold over elastic and gusset design seemed to be gentle on her thighs.
All in all these covers fit well, were highly adjustable and easy to use. Their bamboo prefolds are thick and thirsty and I loved the light pink hue on the top layer of the prefold (available colors are natural, green, blue and pink). I also received the wipes case that enclosed my samples and although they fit a diaper for a quick trip to the store I now store all of my extra wipes in it. I use a wipes warmer, however, you could store wipes in their cases if you use a spray bottom cleaner or even put your solution in the bag. If you choose this method I would recommend changing the solution regularly and wash the wetbag with your cloth diapers throughout the week. Their bamboo prefolds come in a larger version of this wetbag, which I am eyeing to store my prefolds in!
