The covers are available with Aplix closures, while the one-size diapers are not (newborn diapers are).
The cover has a wipeable inner, so it can be reused for multiple diaper changes.
The diaper cover has 5 rise settings. That combined with the waist snap adjustment and overlapping tabs, gives you a lot of options to find just the right fit.
That said, the cover is quite large overall, considerably larger than the smart sleeve diaper.
I do not think this cover would fit newborns or small babies. The smallest setting seems similar to the medium setting on one-size diapers. For simplicity, I’m labeling the size settings 1/smallest through 5/largest.
Here is the smallest setting (first snap) folded and stretched:
Setting five/largest setting/fully unsnapped:
While the cover can be used with inserts, it seems to be sized to better fit over bulkier systems like fitted diapers.
Here is my 21ish pound son in the Smartipants cover, smallest setting (waist and rise) with a Flip stay dry insert:
It also fit over my fluffiest fitted, my Heartland Dreams.
If you are looking for a highly adjustable cover, that will fit your larger baby for a long time, this is it!
