Some people love all-in-one cloth diapers and others enjoy pockets, but for some, they know cloth diaper covers is where it’s really at. Covers are extremely versatile and make cloth diapering easy. That’s why when Lalabye Baby announced a cloth diaper cover in 2017, I was excited! We can always use more cloth diaper cover options.
Earlier this month, Modern Bottom Babies published her review of the Lalabye Baby Cover and it reminded me I ordered this pretty little cover to try out and share with you. So here’s my scoop on the situation.

Lalabye Baby currently manufactures an all in two (AI2) diaper. It’s a versatile diaper with options. With two bamboo inserts, you can use it how you wish. Lalabye Baby is very similar to Funky Fluff in this respect.
Lalabye Baby Cover Design
The Lalabye Baby cover is very similar to the AI2 version. There is a minor discrepancy between the two products with the pocket/ AI2 being a smidgen larger. I don’t notice this impacting the overall fit of the product.
This is a one size cloth diaper cover. It is estimated to fit insert weights with a 4 rise setting and two rise snaps across. Along the waist, the Lalabye Baby Cover features the same rainbow snap setting and a double waist snap with crossover.
Inside the diaper, the exposed PUL is adorned with front and back flaps of PUL. Tuck in your inserts (or not) to keep the mess better contained. Similar diapers with tummy and back flaps are the Flip Diaper and the Smart Bottoms Too Smart Cover. Under each flap is a snap at the front and the back of the diaper. These snaps are for snapping in Lalabye Baby bamboo inserts (or really anything else that would fit could be snapped).
What’s to Love
- Fits over a Fitted: This cover is roomy enough to fit over fitted cloth diapers such as the Nuggles Fitted Cloth Diaper.
- Rainbow Snaps: These are amazing for other caregivers of your children as it’s easy to remember for the best fit.
- Interior Flaps: I rarely ever use the flaps, but I love diapers with flaps. In my experience, this offers the best protection for keeping clothes dry and messes in.
- Interior Snaps: Snap-in whatever you like and this cover goes from just a cover to a no-fuss cloth diaper (could even use it as an all in one). These are generic every-day snaps and almost anythign will snap in from Funky Fluff Inserts to Best Bottom, and most importantly the Lalabye Baby Bamboo Inserts.
- Crossover Snaps: I might never use the cross over snaps on my babies (I just don’t make them that tiny) but I do love cross over snaps for rolling up messy cloth diapers and snapping shut for leaving the house with cloth diapers.
- Fit: I mentioned the smaller size than the Pocket diaper but its still a great fit for all of my kids fitting my toddler beast and my one-year old.
Take it or Leave it?
I’m not sold I need more of these diapers. I’m not really sure what it is, but this isn’t a diaper that brings me a ton of joy, or is a cover I reach for regularly. I don’t think I’ll be buying more.
I’ve been slightly concerned with the overall quality of the Lalabye Baby materials because I’ve noticed minor wear on the cover. I purchased this cover over Black Friday sale and the PUL seems to be showing minor wear signs quicker that I feel comfortable with. The PUL is very stretchy and uncomfortably so.
