Bummis Simply Lite One Size Diaper Cover Review ~Plus~ #Giveaway (11/29)

Finally, a one size diaper cover from Bummis! Perhaps it is the cheerful pistachio dot pattern that adds to its appeal, but it has performed well over our prefolds, which I have been using once or twice a week for an easy diaper laundry day. It comes equip with sturdy snaps, which we prefer at our home and although the 3 X 2 X 3 rise settings threw me off at when I first adjusted the rise, the lack of a center middle snap has not affected the fit. After all, a snug leg and waist keep leaks in and there seems to be a little additional room for fluffy fitteds and prefolds.

Bummis SUper Lite

Baby sister is on the middle setting at 8 months old and well over 22 pounds, and the elastic binding is stretchy and seems comfortable even when it is snapped on snugly. She is pulling herself up on play tables and on the verge of crawling so she is always on the move and the cover has stayed in place. My main struggle with diaper changes lately has been getting one on her or making sure I have it secured properly as she twists her body and tries to scoot and roll away (perhaps they will design a one size Pull-On Pant next!).

This cover has worked on our sized and moderately fluffy one size fitted diapers, but did not fully cover our bulkiest one size fitted diapers. Since I predominantly use this with prefolds this has not been an issue or deal breaker for us, but it is something to keep in mind if you plan to use this with thick, one size fitted diapers. It will work on many of them, perhaps even most of them, but not all of them. The Simply Lite one size cover has a trim fit without sparing room to grow, and does not add significant bulk in addition to the prefold or fitted diaper. The cover dries quickly in between changes and has become one of the first I grab for when it is clean.

  1. Love those thighs! I love the snaps on the Simply Lite but wish it was a bit bigger! It barely fits Finley @10m and I can’t use it over any of our fitteds. I wish other brands would use sturdier snaps.

    • It would be nice to have the option to use them with bulkier fitteds like our Sloomb HLCs, but I have just been using this on “prefold day” where she still has some room to grow. Perhaps a toddler size would be something for them to consider so more families can take advantage of those sturdy snaps!
