I have tried other cloth diapers before, but none I love as much as Bum Essentials! It’s such a great concept- the diaper shell can be used more than once! Which means less laundry, and that makes everyone happy. And what makes me even more happy? Harrison never had any leaks! Yay! As busy mothers we all know how important it is for diapers not to leak. There are snaps in the front so you can adjust the diaper to fit babies from 8-34 pounds! This will save you big bucks because you won’t have to buy all kinds of diapers in all kinds of sizes. Harrison seemed comfortable and happy in his eco-friendly diaper, and it wasn’t as bulky as I thought it would be. It works like this: there’s a diaper shell, which can be used more than once. Then you snap in the Bum Pad, which comes in two sizes to use separate for different sizes, or together for extra absorbency. And it’s that simple! Washing is really easy- Bum Essentials has great diaper pail liners and cloth diaper bags to hold the soiled diapers, then just throw in the wash! I would definitely recommend Bum Essentials Bumbino diapers to all new and experienced mothers! A big thanks to Bum Essentials for jump starting my cloth diapering!
Things that are Brag Worthy:

- Cost efficient, especially since the same diapers fit babies big and small
Here’s a few tips of caring for your Bumbino Diaper from the Bum Essentials Blog:
1- ALWAYS Fold back the laundry tabs. This will prevent the daisy chain from coming out of the washer. It may make less work if they are all tied up and one long chain that lifts straight from the washer to the dryer BUT it will damage the tabs over time and it can also pick the diapers.
2-Use the Snaps Carefully– Don’t grab and pull as hard as you can on the material to unsnap the Bum Pads from the micro-fleece. The snaps are there to help stabilize the inserts to make it easy to put on. Micro-fleece is a durable material that does not tear easily but that doesn’t mean you can use brute force and rip the Bum pads straight out of the diaper. Hold as close to the snaps and then unsnap.(this is why there are no snaps in the back of our Bumbino- I really don’t want to get that close to poop) The same is true for the adjustable snaps on the front of the diaper. It is best you hold closely to the snaps when unsnapping. This is good info for any diaper.
3-Detach Bum Pads from Bumbino prior to Washing and Drying– You will have those heavy wet pads pulling on your diaper as it tosses around your washer and dryer. This will become even more of a mess if you haven’t secured the laundry tabs.
4-Bleach and Fabric Softner will breakdown Material overtime– I use bleach on my Hubby’s T-shirts and after a few months they are see thru so Just imagine what it could do to your Fluffy Stash. Fabric softener also eats away the material plus it is usually loaded with perfumes that could irritate your baby.
5-Carefully select your detergent– you want to avoid a lot of stain removing properties and enzymes. Click here for a laundry chart guide.
6-Don’t dry on Scorching Temperatures– When possible line dry. This not only saves your diapers but it saves on energy and there is nothing like a good ole sun bleaching. The sun can naturally bleach your inserts and kill bacteria.
