BumEssentials Review & Giveaway


Bum Essentials, if you don't know them already, is a great company that is bringing some awesome cloth diapers to modern, everyday families. Bum Essentials carries diapers, bum pads, diaper bags, pail liners and they also have some great starter kits for those looking to build their stash from nothing or those looking to bulk it up a bit. Nora was kind enough to send us one of their Bum Essential Bumbino Diaper in Sunshine Yellow.

Likes: While I'm not the hugest aplix fan, I will say that this hook and loop doesn't completely turn me off. It works great and held up great under the few washes it has been in so far. I haven't had to peel lint out of it, yet, and overall, it still looks perfectly new. I love that this is a one-size diaper, which in my opinion, is the only way to go and I love that it fits babies from 8 pounds all the way up to 34 pounds! I also love that with the aplix, you loose that gap that can pose some leakage issues that some other diapers have. I love the BRIGHT yellow color and I love that regardless which diaper you choose, the colors will work for both genders. Makes shopping easy. Especially for subsequent children. I also love the AI2 style of this diaper. I LOVE not having to stuff pockets (who knew?) and I love that you can still add the inserts that you need to provide the absorbency that you need. If I would have known about these types of diapers when I first purchased my system, I would have chose the AI2 style instead, for sure. I love that the laundry tabs work great and I love that I don't have to play with 9 adjustment straps to get the perfect fit. It just works and it's easy. When you have a child who's squirming around and wants to play, something that works and that's EASY means everything. It really does.

Dislikes: I'm kind of sad that this company doesn't have a snap option or even a system that has snaps but what can you do. You can't please everyone.
