Made in China.
I ordered these in the newborn size. I have them as backups in case all my Thirsties get pooped on. :) The Dappis didn't fit right at first because the leg holes were a little too big, but she grew quickly. She was born tiny at 6 lb 14 oz, and the Dappis fit by the time she was three or four weeks old. I also have them in medium for my 26-pound toddler who is potty trained but needs some backup at night. They work if she has jus t a tiny accident, but of course panties are not meant to absorb huge amounts of pee, so they leak if she releases the cracken. I have had no leaks when using them with diapers. If they get pooped on, they're a little tricky to get off without smearing, but it can be done.
I have mixed feelings about these diaper covers. They are great insofar as preventing wicking and containing messes, and I can rotate 2 throughout a day by having one air out and dry off while my daughter is wearing the other. My major issue is with the sizing, which seems to be a recurring problem among other reviews, although my complaint is about a different aspect. My daughter is in the 40th percentile across the board, so she's not a strangely sized or proportioned baby. I had her in the newborn size at 9 pounds, and the waist and leg elastics both left red marks on her skin. I put her in the smalls to see if she was just too big, but then had the same problem with the waist while having too much extra room in the legs. After getting several of the econobum snap covers, I really wish I'd just gone for those in the first place! I don't see myself using the Dappis except as an extreme backup until I can afford a few more of the econobums.
I am giving these covers a middle-of-the-line review because of size issues. As for the durability of the covers themselves, I do like them and they hold up well. I use them as backup covers when my others are in the wash and always carry them in my diaper bag when I am out and about in case I need a cover. When my baby finally grew into the sizes and the leg holes fit nicely around the leg they have worked great, rarely any leaks, and they dry very quickly which is nice. So they would get a full 5 star rating for quality and durability. I'd give them a 1-2 star for fit. I read different reviews on these before purchasing them and some said the sizes were accurate, others said the sizes weren't and I really think it comes down to luck and what you end up with in your packages. I bought one of every size, newborn, small, medium, and large and the newborn size did not fit my newborn, in fact the newborn ones were actually 2 different sizes, one was larger than the size smalls, the other was barely smaller in size than the small ones I had ordered, so they did not fit my little one until she hit about 15 pounds, and the package and tags on the covers both said newborn. I haven't gotten around to using the larges yet, and not sure if I will ever even need them, they are gigantic, they are larger than the underwear I wear and given that my little one is a skinny girl, I don't think they would ever stay up on her. But the small and medium sized ones seem like they will fit the poundage range listed. Like I said above, love the covers they do their job well and are easy to use, downside is that the sizing is not great and I really think that just comes down to luck and what you end up with. I wish they would come out with a premie size that might actually fit newborns.
I just received these yesterday and I can say without a doubt that they are wonderful! They do make a bit of noise when my daughter runs around but nothing like the disposables sound like. Most of all, These are truly leakproof. I had her wear one as soon as I received them and they only whicked slightly around the leg just once when the diaper was touching the spandex leg of the cover. As far as over night is concerned, I love this cover because we woke up with a dry bed and dry clothes. I wish I would have gone with these rather than PUL a long time ago. I wish Dappy made these in a wrap style cover.
These really really work! They are almost leak free 99.999 % of the time! I have used quite a few of these, To save money, make your own Ritas Rump pocket diapers with flannel, purchase a snappi or two and use these. They work, and they are cheap! I also buy these and use them to waterproof my cloth pads!
Just purchased these to replace Econobum diaper covers that were not longer waterproof/leaking. After a full day of use, I am pretty pleased. This review is primarily to remark on the size. My son turned 2 today and is 28 lbs (I just weighed him) and the mediums are plenty big on him. When in doubt, go a size smaller.
I have used the Newborn sized Dappi nylon pants for two months with my third child. They have been wonderful! They contain poo much better than disposables. I had to stitch up the legs a bit because my newborns have skinny legs. The only other thing I didn't like about them was that when we did have a blowout, no poo would escape the pant but if it came out of the prefold onto the pant, my little one would still get poo all up and down his leg. This is just due to the design- you have to pull them off like you do pants. I still love them- no issues with leaking or stinking so far!
I love these. I've tried bumGenius, Flip, and Econobum but have been unsatisfied for various reasons. These, with a prefold pinned, are our favorite way to diaper. They are very trim under clothes, even on my 6 mo baby. They allow for great ease of movement for both baby and toddler, and I've had essentially no leaks (any I had were the prefold's fault not the Dappi). Plus, you can't beat the price. That said, there are a few cons. They have stained around the legs where bf poo has leaked out the prefold. While everyone else says they run large, I find they have much too short a rise for my tall kids. If I get a size that is tall enough, it's not tight enough around the waist/legs. such is the problem with a pull on. Even so, this is a great solution for us. I can bulk and fit a doubled, even tripled, prefold under these for bedtime or use a super trim flatfold. They work for everything, super thin yet indestructible. I'm very pleased and will be ordering more!
I bought a size medium for my 9 month old 21 pound son, but they are just too big. I have ordered the size small and hope it fits well. They are nice and soft and I am excited I found these.
With my second son I used cloth and it was Chinese prefolds, a snappi and Alexis Featherlite pullup nylon pants. They do not make those pants anymore, so this was the next kind I bought. They work great! They never leaked, or allowed a blowout and the prefolds never caused a diaper rash. I didn't like the Bummis pull up pants because the bindings on the legs DID wick moisture and so then my son's clothes would be wet. Back to Dappi I went. So glad to find them again for this baby!
If I knew 15 months ago, what I know now, I would of just bought these, prefolds, and a couple of snappi's and saved myself even more money! This is all you really need to diaper your baby. These keep everything in, are easy to clean, and dry quickly. As my daughter has grown, these are what I keep going back to as she moves up sizes- time to purchase the larges!
I picked these up as a cheap option for my newborn, since I knew he probably wouldn't fit the OS covers for a few weeks. They worked just fine, though definitely aren't as cute as the fitted covers. Now I keep them around as backups, and they have held up well.
Dappi is a wonderful basic diaper cover. We have been using these pretty regularly for about a year now and find that they are sturdy and very water proof. Nothing exciting about this cover but it's cheap. We now use these when we don't have any clean Thirsties covers which we prefer because they come off like a disposable diaper and avoid the slide down mess. If you are on a tight budget and want a quality diaper cover to put over pinned prefolds for less cost, this "nylon" cover is it! We have never seen one of these covers tear like the Gerber vinyl pants that get weaker with each wash, and we wash them on HOT!!! They are bulletproof and I like the fact that they are nylon, much stronger material. Regarding sizing, if you plan on putting these over doubled prefolds for nighttime use, the size chart is right on, and we have slender children. These are worth the money saved!
You can't beat these covers for the price! Sure, they may look a little funny, but they are soft and they work well over almost any diaper! I loved these for a tiny baby because they are so soft and don't add any more stiffness or bulk to the diaper. They also work well over underpants for potty training.
I bought all kinds of expensive things for overnight, spent hundreds. All I needed to do (and what works the best) is to bulk it up with prefolds and hemp (do a regular sized prefold and a hemp doubler wrapped in a flat or newborn sized prefold inside of the regular prefold) use pins and pull on pants. It's old school but it works. And it happens to be the cheapest option. It can be hard to get a good fit, and baby might be inbetween sizes at times. But when it fits, it works great. I found that for overnight, baby tosses and turns too much for a snappi, so I do need pins. But I made it 12 months before ever pinning a diaper. For daytime we use flip and econobum covers, but for nights, naps, and whenever we're feeling like it, we use these. Also, they don't stain so they are great for mealtime. I have food stains on all of my flips, econobum, and prowrap covers.
I bought the newborn size to supplement my Econobum covers. They fit my 12lb (yep, she's a chubby all over baby) 6 week old daughter great. No leaks, though they are a pain to take off when BM poop explodes out of her flat- or prefold. They have stained a little bit around the legs, but that doesn't really bother me because no one's going to see them. I think the bubble butt they give baby girl is cute and they do squish down flat under clothes. Really, the only thing that I don't like is having to take them off when she's exploded, but it's not really a big deal. These are especially great if you're on a tight budget like me.
They run a little big as others have pointed out, but if you buy a size down they work pretty well. I like that they dry quickly and are easy to wash by hand. They are light and seem comfortable since it's not too tight around the legs or waist. I'm not sure if I like these better than the Bummis Whisperpant. I think these don't fit quite as well and might leak a bit more. They are the same price so I suggest trying both. They are cheap so having extra can't hurt.
I have used these for years they work great, they do run a little big but to me that doesnt really matter. they dry fast and they are easy to clean.
I bought these for my 22 months old who is potty train during the day but not at night.I'm still nursing him 3 times a day and because of this he's diapers are still wet at night (but not always).They look and feel great but have one major problem:too big on the legs.Even though my son is almost 26 lb,he's got really skinny legs and small butt. Because these pants feel so good we are still gonna try and use them,plus they are rash free.
I love these, but they're not perfect. Pros: they are cheap, hard to destroy, make for a thin, trim, and comfy fit. Clothes fit over them so well. But cons - for newborn poo, you end up pulling runny poo down over the legs, and once the baby gets older and needs shoes, they can make diaper changes while out and about a pain since you need to remove shoes and all to remove these. You can make do leaving the cover on for a pee dipe, but it's still somewhat akward compared to a wrap. These + prefolds makes for a super cheap super effective diapering system and some of both have a place in everyone's stash IMO - but they work best in between when baby has runny poo and is walking with real shoes, or for home use with no shoes.
I have only had these Dappi pants for 2 days and I'm already in love and wondering why I ever wasted my time on any of the other expensive diaper covers!!!! These are great! The newborn size is fitting my 12 1/2 lb. 7 week old great with room for probably at least a few more weeks. They're not bulky, just fluffy but that flattens under clothes. Completely leakproof and I love the soft, elastic waistband. I bought these because we were using the bummis super brights and the strip of fabric above the velcro strip would often get tucked under the velcro and thus put the velcro in contact with my newborn's skin. I would take off his diaper and he'd have a red, irritated line across his belly from where the velcro was rubbing against his skin. Not a problem with these great Dappi Nylon Pants! I HIGHLY recommend them!
I like the little marshmellow bottom these give. I've been using them for the last two weeks on my newborn, in the newborn size. True they seem big, they still hold everything in and i know that they will grow with her. I also use these on my two year old at bed time over his diaper and wake up to dry sheets in the morning, its a wonderful thing.
bought a few of these because they were cheap. i got the newborn size and they still dont fit on my 12lb 4month old! not sure whose baby they think has legs that big! i hope to use them in a few more months with my baby. however if you have a messy pooper these may not be what you're looking for because then you have to try and slide the cover down your babys legs without getting poop everywhere. these are probably better for older babies and kids esp if you're potty training. otherwise just get a thirsties cover!
-No leaks, cheap, quick drying, no fasteners, not bulky -The #1 thing you want in a diaper cover is NO LEAKS, right? This is it!I've tried dozens of other diapers and covers and this is the ONLY one that I have NEVER HAD A LEAK with. I've read the other reviews about leaks and fit and I think what is important is that you do find the right fit. Perhaps size down or buy two sizes (they are cheap enough!). The most important thing with any cover is to make sure the entire diaper is completely covered by the diaper cover. -The other thing is it is a bit voluminous but the fabric is very thin and light so squishes very easily under clothes and is not bulky. I like the Bummis WW cover too, but it is way bulkier than this. -I have used this with my 8.5 lb newborn over snappied prefolds and he's now 11 or 12lbs and i"m using them over a few different fitteds too! I'm thinking the pull-on style with be good for those stand up diaper changes that will inevitably come later. -Another plus: no velcro to snag everything --oh and if they get a little poo on them I just take them to the bathroom with me when I wash my hands and wash them out and hang it on the towel rod there to DRY IN NO TIME- otherwise I just let them air out and put em on next diaper change. -Only drawback (besides they don't come in cute colors) is that I may leave him in a wet diaper longer than I would if it leaked to remind me he needed a new diaper. -You are wasting your money if you Don't buy some of these!
I find that these are not waterproof at all -I have changed countless outfits because of leaks in the legs. I will be going back to the Bummi Whisperpants asap.
I love these pants!! I use these with prefolds and pins and they keep my son dry wonderfully! They stain a little, but they keep breastfed poop in without leaking. They are true to size and the price can't be beat! I used Thirsties, Bummis Wrap and Prorap and these are my favorite. I do use BG at night, though.
These are SO great! They exceeded my expectations, as a mom of three who is just starting with cloth diapers. I have a skinny one-year-old in diapers now, prefolds with Dappis as a cover. She's 21 pounds, so I got one small and one medium. Both fit, so I'm on here to order a couple more mediums -- I figure I'll get the one she'll keep wearing longest. These covers don't leak at all, even with messy diapers! I don't care the tiniest but about stains on them, or about the puffy look they have. (Who's going to see or care?) People who say they're too big must mean they puff out, but that's fine with me. The elastic bands are soft but leak-proof, and that's all that counts in my book! I heartily recommend these!!!
I've used these nylon pants for 2 months now with my daughter, and I love them! I'm using the small, and she still has plenty of room to grow. I agree that they are a little voluminous, but I usually put something else over them (a onsie, diaper cover from her outfit, etc.) and don't think twice. The elastic isn't too tight on her legs, and the nylon is very waterproof. And the price is WONDERFUL! I would highly recommend these to any cloth diapering parent, even if just as a backup cover during washing day.
Pluses: lightweight, stretchy leg elastics do not seem to bind. They do seem to be waterproof - we got them to put on over training pants worn around the house. They can be pulled up and down by the child. They are "airy" and provide for good circulation. Minuses: these are big enough that a slender adult could wear them. We got the ones that are supposedly for 32-35 lbs kids (my son is 32 lbs), but they are voluminous to the degree that my son thinks they are MY underwear. We could fit him into them in a diaper twice over, and the leg gussets hang down around his knees (or I could pull the waistband up to his armpits). There is so much extra room, you could fit a loaf of bread in his pants without squishing it at all. That's how huge these are.
I LOVE these covers. My daughter was 8 lbs 4oz at birth and she wears the newborn size. They fit good. I like that they are roomy, because I think it helps with ventilation. I use with cloth diapers and have never had a leak. These are great for the money!
I LOVE these nappy covers! They work PERFECTLY! I use organic fitted cloth diapers underneath and my son has NEVER has a leak of any kind. I even put them over the fitteds and a wool cover at night so the wool won't wick moisture onto his pajamas. Works like a dream.
These covers are ridiculously big! My tall, yet proportionate 2 1/2 year old daughter looked like a caricature of herself while she walked around in these. Images of baby new year with an enormous diaper instantly came to mind. I decided to let my daughter put these covers on her dollies. If I could give this cover a 0, I would.
By looking at these pants, I'm sure they would work if you have one that would fit your baby. However, the sizing is ridiculous. I have the newborn size, and my baby who is 9 and a half pounds still cannot wear these. They are huge around her waist and thighs.
These are by far worth every penny! Why: 1. They dry super fast 2. They wash super easy 3. They are super cheap 4. No need to worry about snaps or velcro 5. They do not stain badly, like the Duo which stains terrible on the gusset trims--I am so surprised moms are not bothered by this I am giving it a 4 star because they only come in white and because they are cut a bit weird (from the same package, one cover is much tighter around the legs and belly than the other cover. Nevertheless, it works great with prefolds and I am getting lots of use out of the NB. My daughter is 2 mo and I have been using them every day since she was 2 wks. I wish they came in more colors. I will definatelly buy them in bigger sizes, if I need them. So far, these and the econobum and the flip are my favorite covers because I can use them with 100% cotton prefolds. I LOVE the BG 3 and I use it at night, but during the day, I want to put cotton on my baby.
I am really pleased with the dappi pants. I got the newborn size and after reading the reveiws I didn't expect them to fit when dd was born. She was 8 lbs and 21 inches and they were a bit big around the legs, however they did work without leaking. Now she is 12 lbs and the newborn size still fits her, still without leaking! I am very happy with these covers. They are easy to wash, very fast to dry and easy to pack extras in the diaper bag without bulk. They also fit nicely under clothing. Very compact even though they look baggy. They do wick a little bit at the waist and leg bands but only after a soaking wet diaper. So you just rinse it out and lay it out to dry and get another one out. In 20 minutes the first pair will be ready to go again! They do stain a bit but honestly I don't care because they are so inexpensive and work very well. I have not had one leak with these.
Really the best diaper cover I have tried. Don't hold smells & wick like Bummis covers after many washings. Stitching holds up. And they are cheap. So very happy with these.
a waste of $5. i had the premee sized for my 12lber and they were still too big! by the time she didn't have leaky gaps in her legs the rise was too short. not worth the aggravation of the messes.
We only have a couple (they came w/ the Kissaluvs diaper package) of the newborn size....and they are Huge! We would surely experience a great deal of leakage if we were to use them on our newborn. Much prefer either the Thirsties or Proraps covers. Maybe they will work okay once we finally grow into them... ??
We have used these for the last year, and love them! My son is chunky, and they fit great- he is in the mediums and larges (depending on the size of the prefold underneath) at almost 22 lbs. We use these all the time, and occasionally at night. No leaks over snappied prefolds and they fit well under clothes. They are gentle on his thighs and there is no aplix to rub when sitting. You do have to fasten the diaper underneath, we also have bsww for trifolding or use over snappied prefolds.
These are great for potty training; my 2 year old wears these over undies. When he wets it holds in the liquid. This is much cheaper than buying training pants!
I just love these covers....they hold up well and they are inexpensive. I have washed them over and over again and been using them a year and a half and they still look great. I just ordered new ones...just to have extra. Great purchase!
I love these covers more than any of the others I've tried and the price is GREAT. In fact, I just got online to order more. My daughter was 6 and a half lbs at birth and I started using these a week after she was born. They are a little big but I have had surprisingly few leaks. They are soft and they fit nicely under clothes, not adding much bulk. Another thing I love about them is that I can rinse them out quickly with hot water and a tiny bit of soap, if needed, and put them in the sun to dry. They dry very quickly and the sun takes out every single vestige of a stain.
These leak moisture at the waist and thighs way too often. I hate putting these back on after a diaper change with wet elastic. The elastic is also very loose and the diaper will come out of them leaking all over my baby's clothes. Definitely not recommended overnight as they have leaked every single time. These are my last resort covers. Thirsties are a much better buy.
I got these in the newborn size and she was awimming in them...when she could finally wear them they worked well, but I prefer the bummies to these..although for the price of these you can't complain to much.
I got these in the newborn size and she was swimming in them...when she could finally wear them they worked well, but I prefer the bummies to these..although for the price of these you can't complain to much.
The newborn size in these is ridiculously large. They wont fit my baby for a long time. Also, they look silly and uncomfortable. I bought a bunch of these after reading the reviews thinking they would be perfect and it turns out they are a complete and total flop. I wish I'd gotten more of the thirsties covers, which aren't just cute, but they actually fit my newborn and they work wonders.
LOVE these! There was even a point where I loved them more than the thirsties covers. My baby seems to be between sizes right now though and I do have occasional leaks as his thighs, the diaper bulk, and the rise aren't quite right. I still have less leaks than with disposable though and my baby is unusually proportioned. 7 months and 25 lbs, tall but very chubby too.
I got some of these in Large, which is the correct size for my 18-month-old boy (30 lbs), and have been using these about a month now with pre-folds and a Snappi. This combination is a little bulkier than a disposable, but I've been able to get my child's clothes on him fine anyway. There have been NO leaks, even with some horribly icky-runny messes and a super-active toddler. (This is better than I can say for the leading brand of disposables, which I previously used.) Easy to wash -- in fact I accidentally washed some in hot water and it didn't seem to do them any harm. One stained a little, but I used Biz on it. These were leaving some red marks on my son's thighs, but I was able to eliminate this problem by making sure the leg holes are high-enough up on his leg & the diaper is completely inside. The one huge problem is getting them off when they're soiled with a stinky mess, since they have to come over the feet. With a particularly nasty "job" to clean up that didn't stay inside the cloth diaper, this can mean washing the changing-table cover and possibly the baby, too. With a toddler, I can predict pretty easily when he's going to do # 2, so I will probably get some Dappi diaper covers (the kind with Velcro-style fastners that wrap around -- wish Cotton Babies would start carrying them) to use at those times of day, and use these the rest of the time.
I am new to cloth diapering. I just got these a week or so ago but I love these. I was using some newer gerber ones and some older gerbers that I had gotten from a friend. The Dappis are so much nicer, I love the waistband and legs the material around these are so soft. These also keep him totally dry we haven't had any leaks yet. He actually had an explosive poopy the other day and these kept it all in no leaks his disposables would have leaked. I am planning to order more of these soon. Ps. cottonbabies were very quick to get the order out to me, great doing business with them
I recently purchased several of these Dappi nylon diaper pants. My son has worn them everywhere- and I mean everywhere; he has sat in the dirt, tussled with the dog, and ridden his little trike in nothing but his Dappi pants covered diaper- and they have held up beautifully! I have not had a single leak, even overnight. Yes, they do stain, but so do his other clothes that go where he goes. They are soft and light, and do not make his skin hot like other diaper covers, even the expensive pul ones. And I love the way I can get several uses between machine washes just by swishing them in the sink and hanging them to dry. I should have gotten some long ago. They are the best combination of economy and performance/ quality that I have come across in the diaper cover world. -_a href="http://cheapdiaperlinks.blogspot.com/"_Cheapdiapermom_/a_
I love these! I had gotten some as a gift when my son was born and then I actually got a pair off diaperswappers recently and they are still awesome! I like my Thirsties, but these are just as good and so much cheaper! Perfect over my fitteds!
I haven't gotten to use these yet and I will write another review once I have, but the newborn size is huge! There's no way these will fit on any normal newborn! I couldn't believe it when I opened them. =(
These are great!! So soft, you can use with more than one diaper change. Easy to do a quick hand wash and hang dry...and affordable!!!!! Go Dappi pants!!!
I've tried a lot of diaper covers & these by far hold up the best as far as leaks are concerned. don't be fooled be the other dappi covers out there because there is a cheaper version they make & they are no good for the washer & dryer!
I've tried several different style of diaper covers, and Dappis are definitely the best value for I've found for the money. They do everything they say they'll do!
I am not impressed with these! They are the first covers I've gotten, and they leak all the time, even leaking poop. They're also hard to get off when the leg holes are covered in poop, as they have to go over the feet, and my son winds up getting poop all down his leg! I'm going to go for a different style of cover next time-- one that doesn't have to go down the legs to be removed!
I bought these to go over the Indian cotton prefolds. Since I've always had to size up for disposable diapers (my 16-month-old ways 29 pounds and is pretty chunky), I got the XL / Toddler size. It's too big around the waist; I probably should have gone with L. However the leg holes seem tight enough that they are still usable.
Another thing - easy to handwash these, hang them to dry, and by the next diaper change, they're done! That saves money because you don't have to buy a ton of these to get you through the day. I do fine with 4 a day.
These are excellent for the price. In 3 months I have never had a leak, and I can't say that for BumGenius. Don't waste money on expensive covers when these work well. I have even thrown them in the washer/dryer, and have caught them on zippers. They have done well!
I LOVE these covers! I use them over the prefolds, regular diapers, the AIOs (because my daughter learned to undo the velcro), and am now using them over my daughter's training pants! I've had them almost a year, and they're holding up GREAT. I'm buying more because they're so economical and I just want more around while I have both kids in diapers.
I love these covers! They are very effective, and make it so that my baby's clothes fit over the cloth diaper...the other covers make it so that I have to stretch her clothes over them and I don't like that. I really recommend these.
These are definitely a CD'ing staple for me, they are convenient, easy to use, easy to clean, and take up very little space when balled up in the bottom of my very cute purse (haaaate diaper bags). My 2 month old is 15 lbs and still able to wear the NB size, when he was first born at 6.5 lbs they were a little loose around the legs. He will probably be using the small size in a week or two. Anyway, I much prefer these to anything else because they are the trimmest. However at night I often use the BG 3.0, just so I don't have to wake my son up for a diaper change in the middle of the night.
These are just like the covers I remember my mom using 17 years ago on my sister. I bought them as back up to my super whisper wraps but I end up using them the most. I love that they are easy to wash and they dry quickly. They look puffy if they baby has no pants on but they fit under clothes the same way my BG 3.0 did when I use a prefold. I am ordering more for my daughter and my new baby!! (Note: you always need to size up clothes to fit cloth diapers under them but these seem to add the least bulk)
My son is in these full-time and I am very happy with them. He was in the infant size til around 14 pounds, is currently in the small size, and we have the mediums for when the time comes. You can't beat the price, we wanted to do cloth diapers, but can't afford to be in the fancy ones full-time. We use the Bum genius diapers for night time. We use 6 dappy covers, 30 cloth diapers, and 3 bum genius. We've been happy with this quantity.
I bought these just to have as an inexpensive backup when my expensive covers are all dirty. But now these are the first ones I reach for! I just love that they don't leak, breathe well thus reducing diaper rashes, and most importantly, they don't pinch or bind or leave nasty red marks on my son's back or legs. I love these pants. Too bad I didn't buy them until my son was 9 months old, but I'll definitely buy newborn sized ones when we have our next baby! By the way, though, these are TERRIFIC for my son now that he tries to crawl away while I diaper him. I just Snappi on a prefold and then pull these onto him as he's crawling off into the sunset! :) (Oh, and I haven't had any stains on them, either.)
these work great, my son has been using the size small for 8 months now (they still fit even though he is 20 pounds) and they are still in great shape. very easy to clean. although they do stain pretty easy. they are definately well worth the money
Love these covers! Do not leak, comfortable, easy to wash, not bulky, and CHEAP. I have been very careful about washing and soaking any messes from solids and so far no staining either!
I almost gave up and went back to disposables because every cover I tried leaked...then I tried Dappi's - they are AWESOME!!!! They don't leak and I love to wash them in the sink and re-use them...you can't do that with most of the expensive covers.
I've beeb CD my 4 month old daughter for 2 months now. I've tried just about every different kind of diaper and covers out there. I bought 2 of the NB Dappi covers before she was born, and didn't try them until now. I wanted to try the other cute ones first. I have to say that these definately are not cute, but they are trim, and I don't have to worry about leaks at all. These are the only covers I can say that about.
I really like these covers. They are trim, soft, and easy to clean. I like the fact that they don't add any bulk at the waist, or strangle my baby's waist. The other PUL covers that I tried were bulky and stiff, and the velcro tabs at the waist cut into my baby's tummy. One word of caution: if your baby has chubby legs, always buy the next size up. My baby is average, I think, but the size recommended for her weight was borderline small. She is now 22 pounds, and I would definitely get the extra large size. Also, just fyi, if you're looking for other diaper covers. I LOVE G DIAPER covers. THey are the absolute best! I stuff them with doublers - some that are lined w/ fleece and w/ microterry on the other side. I also made some w/ organic cotton velour (wicking property), microterry, and hemp. I use a small doubler w/ 2 layers of microterry under these. They work like wonders!! I REALLY recommend checking these out. You can see them at Whole Foods, in the grocery section. Their new kit costs about $23, and includes 2 pants + + 4 plastic liners + 10 flushable inserts. Otherwise, if you order from their website, new pants are $17 each. I love these covers because they have the TRIMMEST fit I could find. They are soft, pretty, and hold SO much better than anything else I've found. I'm a CD mama at heart, and have tried many different kinds of diapers (AOIs, fitteds, etc.) The G diaper combo of doublers (day time) + inserts (night time, traveling outside the home) works best for me. My baby is a HEAVY WETTER (sometimes her morning diaper weighs 16 ounces - yes, I weighed them!) So I needed something that could absorb this wettness. Cloth never holds so much, but the inserts do the trick. Give them a try! And if you want to stick w/ the typical CD, definitely choose Dappis. I want to buy a few extra pairs to keep on hand. Happy CD-ing!
I'm not really sure how these pants are because we haven't been able to use them yet. Our son is just about 6 pounds and his legs are far too thin for the leg holes! Wishing there was a premie size (even though he wasn't a premie!).
I really liked this cover. Its cheap, comes 2 in a pack and holds in leaks pretty well. It does give my daughter the "fluffy butt" look but I do not care. She was in Rumparooz and had a big badonkadonk with those, I really like these coverrs. Totally worth the money.
These are good standard diaper pants. No red marks! We use these at home only because they are just too crunchy and bulky for cute outfits. I prefer Thirsties colored covers for outings. They make a great night cover and at-home cover for us. And the best part - THEY ARE CHEAP! :)
I bought the newborn size for my son when he was about 9lbs and they were still alittle large. Now he is about 10lbs and fit better he should be able to use them for some time. they work great and don't leak most of the time. However the trim stains very easy.
We got this for our new baby girl who weighed 6.5 pounds. The newborn size was way too large with an excess amount of room in the leg holes. Because of this we have been unable to use them until she gains weight. At this point we are unsure of how good they are and are disappointed that we can't use them yet.
I have nicer, more expensive covers, but for some reason I always reach for my Dappi's. They do a great job of keeping everything dry. I even put these over his pockets at night just for extra protection. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because they stain horribly. I have a couple that have light brown stains at the legs from poop getting on the cover, obviously they're clean, but I wish the stains would've come out (even won't come out in the sun).
These are by far my favorite cover I've been cloth dipering for two months... these are the best, they are trim( thats important CD are bulky) hold in poop and wont leak all night... the only cover that has ever done that and they are comfortable, they dont leave red marks. I bought the gerber ones before I found these and those are terrible they left deep marks. I have a bunch of these in the house and in the diaper bag. bummis are good too but still bulcky under clothes and wool... but those are more for letting them run around with just their diaper on... these are the best for under clothes... hands down and I love the price!
I got these as part of the Kissaluvs NB package I bought on Cotton Babies and I turned my nose up at them but figured, hey, since they're free they can be back ups. I'll put my foot in my mouth now, because these are the only wraps I use on my DD with her NB fitteds! I found that these work perfectly and aren't bulky at all over the fitteds. The BSWW are a bit bulky, leave red marks on her legs (next size up doesn't fit just yet) and the velcro irritates her sensistive NB skin. I'm sure I'll be able to use the other covers a bit later, but these are just perfect for now. The one leak I've had was my fault - I didn't tuck the top of the diaper in at the back (in my defense, it was a 3am diaper change!). I highly recommend these. I'll also add that I am a first time cloth user... :)
I'm surprised at how much I like this cover. Very economical, trim, and easy to use. Size S fits my 3-month 15lb DD very well w/ room to grow. It also fits my slender 3-yr old perfectly to use as a training pant cover. It has only leaked when I forgot to use a doubler overnight w/ the fitted diaper.
I bought these when my 6 month old started leaking through everything at night. They are absolutely bullet proof. I have never, ever had a leak with them. They don't leave red marks on her legs, and they are very trim. I put them over prefolds, fitteds, and sometimes even pockets at night. Sometimes simpler is better.
I bought these diaper covers in two sizes, one for each of my children (6 months & 2 years) and I really liked them for my 6 month old son, but I didnt care for them for my 2 year old. I am not sure what the difference is, but I still use them for my son and I really like them! The are much more comfy for him to move around in especially when he tries to sit on his own. The other diaper covers seem to be too tight around his waist, but these allow for some movement, while still giving great protection against leaks. Would def. reccomend for a younger baby!
I'm new to cloth diapering, and these are wonderful! No leaks for 2 weeks. When the pre-fold didn't keep the poo in, the dappi did and I have tested it overnight and it has worked perfectly as well. It can be a little tricky when trying to remove these with a mess within, but I would rather clean that mess than have to do a whole outfit change because a cover didn't work. I have a 6-mo. old as well as a 2 y.o. and both are using them with no problems. I do highly recommend these for the budget-minded family.
Good ol' Dappis! I've used cloth diapers on two children for over four years...in that time, I've tried everything! You name a style of diaper/cover/aio and we've tried it. Although I've enjoyed the experience, we're a prefold and dappi cover family now. Can't beat the price, they're super easy to use, no leaks at all (even overnight)....simple, efficient, and best of all, fits under every style of clothing we have. Our new baby (due in Feb. '08) will spend his whole cd'ing career in pfs and dappis! BTW, I don't wash mine that frequently; unlike PUL, nylon rinses clean very easily. I just rinse 'em every couple of days, hang 'em up for a few hours, and reuse. PUL doesn't rinse as easily and retains odors more than nylon. Good ol' Dappis!
Great stuff! It looks like regular underpants but it is actually a diaper cover. Very lightweight, breathable, and soft. I always alternate this with the proraps one. And this is great to teach her how to pull in and out of the pants (hopefully would inspire her to potty training when she is ready). Other than that, there was a time when my daughter was a baby, she moved around so much when I changed her diaper. Rather than putting her on the wrap style diaper cover which requires her to be in the right spot (so that it wont skewed to right nor left), I could imagine this would be the possible way out to a quick changing by pulling and putting it back in pants style. This would definitely seem easier to put on the moving around baby. Anyway, LOVE THEM!!
You cannot beat the price on these! Lightweight, breathable, and soft, these are nothing like the vinyl pants of old. No red marks or heat issues. Great for around the house wear when I am laundering her regular covers. I keep a couple in the diaper bag for emergencies, too.
I absolutely love our dappi nylon pants! We have 2 medium, 2 large, and 2 exlg for all 3 of our girls. We use them at night over fitteds with NO leaks! Our older 2 girls wore disposable pullups at night for awhile and we had leaks all the time. We switched to absorbent fitteds with dappi pullon covers and they are DRY every night. I love these. Super soft, no red marks, easy to use, and just a very reliable cover. I also love slipping them over fitteds or prefolds during the day for our 14month old. :O)
