SoftBums Review & Giveaway



SoftBums is an amazing company creating some pretty freaking amazing diapers. They have an amazing set up where you can order aplix or snaps. They also have a Dry-Touch diaper system or an organic bamboo diaper system. They also have a wide variety of packages that can help you try them out or purchase a whole system with big savings.

SoftBums has a lot of your cloth diapering needs covered! Not only do they carry diapers, but they also carry a wide variety of inserts, wet bags, pail liners, cloth wipes, diaper cream and more! I'm sure you can find something you'll love with Soft Bums. Sarah was wonderful enough to send me a SoftBums Basic Pack in their new Chocolate color!! My SoftBums Basic Pack came with one SUPER DryTouch insert, one Organic Bamboo insert and one doubler. I do have to say, however, that their standard SoftBums Basic Pack does include 3 inserts and 1 doubler which is enough for 3 changes.

Likes: Everything. Yep, that's it. That's all I have to say. These diapers have become my new favorite. If I would have tried them out sooner, I would have purchased a system of 24 without thinking twice about it. They're amazing. My husband even loves them and that's say a lot, for sure! To go into detail, though... I love the drawstring leg adjustments. It's super easy to use and amazingly versatile for each and every child and each and every leg. I love how long the inserts are and the fact that you can double them over for 8 layers of protection! I also love how soft they are and the fact that they're designed to reuse the liners and replace the inserts, when needed. I do have to say that They're wonderful. I love the softness of the inserts and it's great to know that my son will be comfortable when wearing this diaper. They're luxuriously soft and I honestly want a bed covering made with the bamboo fabric because it's divine! I also love the ultra trim design and even my husband noticed a difference. When I brought my son out in this diaper, he said, "I don't know if it's just me, or what, but that diaper looks like it fits him really well! All the other ones look bulky and way too big but this one is perfect!". The great thing is that I know it will stay perfect as he gets older, too. Oh and I also have to comment on SoftBums customer service! It's just about as amazing as the diapers themselves! I chatted back and forth with Sarah for a while because I really didn't want to try the velcro but not only did she convince me what a great product it was, she also assured me that if I didn't like it, she'd replace it. Now I can't guarantee that she'd do that for everyone, but I will say that the customer service is PERFECT. I couldn't have had a better experience working with them. *If you aren't sure whether you'd like velcro or snaps, I'd suggest buying one of each to test them out before making a commitment to either style.*

Dislikes: As I've already told Sarah, the ONLY thing that I don't like about this diaper is the aplix/velcro. I am 100% a snap girl so I love my snaps and kind of wish this one did, too. However, I will say that this aplix/velcro is better than other aplix that I have seen. By far. It's just my personal preference that it have snaps. I know some don't like snaps so I'm okay with that.

Rating: 9.9 out of 10

Would you like to have a SoftBums Basic Pack for yourself or someone you know? Here's how you can!

Buy It! Visit Sarah and purchase a SoftBums Basic Pack for $36.95! Remember, that also comes with 3 inserts and 1 doubler. That's 3 changes!

This contest is CLOSED!
Congrats to the winner, Katie!

I would like to send a special Thank You to Sarah at SoftBums for providing the review and giveaway items! I was not compensated in any other way and the statements within this post are of my own and honest opinions.
