The Swaddlebees Capri is a cloth diaper cover that serves as a trim AI2 with the available inserts, or can cover a prefold, fitted etc. The covers are available in hook & loop or snaps (they have the same “offset” snaps as Blueberry) and come in 7 solids (including the “marina” I received) and 8 prints. 95% of Swaddlebees/Blueberry items are made in the U.S.A.

The Capri is a “two size” system, with size 1 fitting approximately 6-16 pounds and size 2 fitting 12-35 pounds. The size 1 retails for $16.95 and the size 2 retails for $19.95.

The cover is pretty trim with the Capri inserts which are sold separately for $12.95-$15.95 per 2 pack.

Whether you choose size 1 or size 2 (I received size 2), you have 3 rise setting options via a snap down rise. The cover is reusable with its wipeable PUL inner, and has true leg gussets. The Capri has front and rear flaps to keep your insert or prefold in place, and it is very sturdy and appears quite durable.

The Capri inserts are all natural birdseye cotton, but have microfleece on one side, so whether you prefer natural fabric, or stay dry fabric, you have both options in one insert.

The long style allows you to fold it to get the absorbency where you need it, and since it’s not all sewn into a single thickness, it’s also easier to get clean.

Keep in mind this is the size two cover, and my measurements aren’t exact!

The size 2 fit my 13ish pound 4 1/2 month old:

As well as my 30ish pound almost 3-year old (with room to grow!)

The birdseye inserts absorbed very well, and I’ve used the cover over flats also. It will definitely be the first cover I grab during the flats challenge!

What a great looking diaper. Very informative review. I am a big fan of the diaper cover system in general. I would love to see how this cover works with prefolds instead of the inserts.
