Bum Essentials Diaper

20 Sep

The Bum Essentials diaper was graciously sent to us by the company for a review with baby boy who has been wearing cloth diapers since birth and is currently 15lbs at 3.5 months.  He started wearing the Bum Essentials Bumbino at 12 lbs and has been wearing it regularly since.  We own a large stash of cloth diapers, well my husband would probably say a very large stash, so I have seen the fit different kinds of diapers on him.  The Bum Essential diaper fits him well and we have had no leaks or issues to date.

This diaper is not an All in One (AIO) as the soaker pads come off the diaper and are interchangeable, however it is not a pocket diaper either as it is not stuffable.  The one size feature is a great bonus (advertised as fitting 8-35lbs) as it means you can buy less diapers as they one size will fit for longer (please don’t tell my husband I need less diapers 😉 and has a snap down front to adjust the rise of the diaper needed.

It is an Aplix (velcro) closure and I must admit that I am not a huge fan of Aplix on any diaper and prefer snaps.   However, I do know that it can be hard to get a good fit when baby boy is between snap settings and therefore I do like the ability of a better fit with the velcro.  There is also a feature of having elastic along the back and front of the diaper.  On some of the cloth diapers we own there is a gap from babies skin to the diaper in the front but great fit everywhere else. The presence of the elastic along the front top of the diaper allows it to fit snugly against his skin.  One thing I did find is that the velcro never stayed closed while in the washing machine and we always pulled it out stuck to other diapers.  We started to press harder when closing it before placing in the wash but we haven’t had any luck in securing it to stay closed throughout the wash cycle. The PUL outer liner ensures no cover is required.

The soakers or inserts are called bum pads and snap together at the front of the diaper with the inside of the diaper and the bum pads made out of micro fleece.  One of the main features of this diaper is that the bum pads can be changed throughout the day when soiled without necessarily changing the whole diaper.  However, our baby is a heavy wetter and by the time I would change him (2-3 hours) he would have already wet through the bum pads and the diaper not allowing me to just change out the bum pads.  Since the diaper itself was lined with micro fleece I would then wash the whole thing rather than drying it out to reuse later in the day.  The snaps for the bum pads are in the front ensuring you never have to touch baby poo while unsnapping to launder 😉
