One size covers are designed to fit babies from 9-35 pounds and have inserts and doublers that snap in (or use your favorite absorbency laid inside).

@Buttons_Diapers #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers 1

Covers have a single row of closure snaps with a hip snap and overlap, a snap down rise and belly elastic.

@Buttons_Diapers #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers 5 overlap

PUL is thick and sturdy and each cover has double gussets to contain messes.

@Buttons_Diapers #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers 6 inserts snap in - thick PUL

I received a daytime microfiber insert which is 4 layers of microfiber topped with soft microfleece. Inserts are available in small (9-20 lbs) or large (20-35 lbs). Need more absorbency? You can choose a 4 layer hemp/cotton blend insert that is also topped with microfleece. Night time doublers are available in small or large sizes and are 5 layers of hemp/organic cotton or 6 layers of microfiber to snap beneath the daytime insert and get your baby through the night dry.

My son is 3 years old and a petite 28 lbs. He wears the medium rise setting of most diapers but I put him in the large:

I’ve never been able to get a great fit on him with any diaper that has belly elastic since he’s on the slender side & it tends to slide down. Even so the diaper worked very well for him and we had no leaks or issues.

Katie tried the diaper on her 27 lb chunky 1 year old. She also used it on the largest rise setting and said it reminds her of another brand with similar snap in inserts, but was a bit bigger and fit her chubby son better. She was also able to swap another brand inserts in. The snap in insert is great since it stays in place as he has started walking.

@Buttons_Diapers #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers 4 (1)

The double gussets keep messes in and the double thickness PUL is nice for a heavy wetter. Katie also received the daytime insert and noted that additional absorbency would be needed for night time. The front elastic is perfect for her tummy sleeper since it keeps the diaper right against his belly with no gap for leaking.

One size covers retail for $11 for solids and $12.50 for prints. Microfiber inserts are $3.50 each and hemp/cotton inserts are $7.75 each.

    These diapers look great! I am “new” to modern cloth diapering and I am so impressed w the double gussets in the cover.

    I have a buttons diaper and it worked great for us. My son is a big boy though so he grew out of it by about 20 months. Until that point though it didn’t leak and is so easy to put together.

    The pictures are very helpful. The double gussets seem great! I’d be interested to know how well the elastic holds up over time.

    the little button at the back is cute!

  • June 3, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    I have tried Buttons diapers and I love them! They are extremely absorbent! I can’t use the nighttime doubler with my son as it’s basically a waste of an insert, he just doesn’t need it even through his 12 hours of sleep at night.

  • June 3, 2015 at 11:44 am

    I would so love to try these, very cute and look like they would hold 🙂

    Loved your review! I don’t typically use covers with tummy elastic, but I do think it would be great for overnight on a tummy sleeper like you mentioned!

  • May 30, 2015 at 1:08 pm

    We have 4 Buttons covers coming in the mail and I can’t wait to get them washed and in rotation. We desperately need them since we only have 3 Econobum covers right now for a 16 month old boy with a baby girl due any day now. Hopefully they perform as well as our Econobum do. 🙂

    I want to try the buttons diaper out. Love the double gussets and that it has elastic in both the front and the back. I am surprised they don’t have a newborn or smaller option for babies under 9lbs

  • Laura
    May 29, 2015 at 9:38 pm

    I have two Buttons covers, and I have to say, I was VERY impressed with the quality. They are thick and feel nothing like “China Cheapies”. I didn’t buy any of their inserts (yet) but they works great over our pinned GMD wide prefolds. They are wide through the crotch like a Flip, and they are generously sized. They were one of the last one size covers my giant 3yo outgrew when she PL, and now they fit my equally giant 13m old great on the middle rise setting.

  • Jamie S
    May 29, 2015 at 9:34 pm

    Definitely want to try these, I love how trim they look! And the double gussets and the ability to swap out soakers for different absorbency – sounds great! Thanks for good review

  • Bethany Sowards

  • Jamie Hammel
    May 27, 2015 at 12:25 pm

    I love the button covers we have for daytime use. I have some of the night time inserts, but to me it made the diaper very bulky and my LO was not comfortable so therefore would not sleep with both inserts in.

  • Sarah Stewart
    May 27, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    Thank you for comparing the fit of the diaper on two large-ish kids. I have had trouble with a couple of diapers fitting my daughter when she was still well below the weight limit of the diaper, so I like to see real experiences with the fit of the diapers. I’m happy to see that there are hemp/organic cotton inserts for nighttime use. Those have worked well for us in the past.

  • Amanda

    I never noticed Buttons diapers until a friend who was new to cloth pointed them out. I actually won one for her in a Now, after reading your review and seeing that they’re interchangeable with another popular snap-in AI2 and that they’re double layers, I’m really intrigued.

  • Rachel B
    May 26, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    I love the little buttons on the back, so cute! I’ve tried a few AI2 systems…I’d love to try Buttons and see the fit on my daughter.

    We have never had a leak with this cover, even without a tummy panel, which I worried about. Super trim too.

    May 26, 2015 at 1:19 pm

    I haven’t tried Buttons but would really love to. I had no idea they use double thickness PUL for their covers. I have a heavy wetter so I bet these would work well for us at nighttime.

  • Anne Sweden

    I love versatile and affordable brands like this! I also don’t care for front elastic on diapers, but our Buttons have always fit and performed superbly.

    we recently got our first Buttons cover, and we really love the fit on our skinny 2.5 year old. The quality is excellent and the pricepoint is fabulous. We’ve used this cover with great success paired with a FST laid in. SO budget-friendly!

    Buttons are adorable, but button on the bum is genius. I love the price point for these diapers! Definitely affordable and I love that they have the tummy elastic – our belly sleeper needs it!
