I’ve been wanting to try one of Bummis wraps, even though I really don’t need any more diapers. I got a gift card to an online cloth diaper store for Christmas, so I snagged a super whisper wrap in the celery dot pattern, newborn size (7-10 lbs.) The wraps are also available in small (8-15 lbs), medium (15-30 lbs), large (30 lbs) and extra large (40 lbs/white only.)
Bummis has 5 types of diaper covers, and this chart compares them all, to clear things up for confused people like me!
The super whisper wrap has aplix closure tabs that can cross over:
Bummis notes that the newborn size of the super whisper wrap is good for bigger newborns, but the Super Bright (exposed inner PUL, leg gussets, more lightweight, great for skinny babies), Super Lite (1 mil exposed PUL, trim fit, very lightweight) and Bummi Original (coated nylon and polyester mesh, very lightweight, very very trim, no elastic, use with inserts/prefolds only) will fit smaller newborns or preemies, starting around 4 pounds.
Here’s the Super Whisper Wrap Newborn size measured folded and stretched:
I called in my usual diaper model for help:

Here’s the wrap over a Kissaluvs size 0 fitted:
and over a trifolded prefold:
Here it is compared to some other newborn diapers (to compare size):
The cut/shape reminds me of the Bummis Swimmi swim diaper. I can’t put the newborn cover to the test of course, but it is a very sturdy, durable cover, and a great value at $12.95! See fit on my newborn.
