There are so many reasons to use cloth diapers, and then again there are so many reasons moms choose to use disposable diapers. I think one of the things I hear over and over when someone learns I use cloth diapers is that they are fearful of using pins around their baby. In a sense it almost makes me laugh, I cannot remember the last time I used a diaper pin for a diaper. There are so many options now, none of which are any easier or better than the All in One Diaper from Bummis.
They have a reputation all the way back to 1988 as making fabulous diapers, I remember using prefold diapers from Bummis with my first child who is now 28, of course I used diaper pins and plastic pants with him, and I have to say we have come a long way baby!
My first thoughts when I got this diaper in the mail was how trim it was! It is an incredibly well-fitting and no bulk diaper. You do not have to stuff it, no snapping in of anything, no folding, no pins, nothing, it is simply like a disposable diaper in the way you put it on. Slide it under the baby, bring it around snap on the hips and one! You have a perfectly diapered baby in cotton comfort with no waste.
Now, I know some of you are saying that if it’s that trim how can it possibly be absorbent enough for my baby? I was a little concerned myself. It is one thing to have a diaper fit well, but it is a hard thing to find when you are looking for a cloth diaper that is trim, fits well, and absorbs well. I am here to tell you that this Bummis All in One diaper does all of that, and the fabric that is against your baby’s skin is a stay dry fabric so that it does not lead to diaper rash or other skin problems.
One of the great things about this diaper is that you are able to add an insert of any kind to this diaper if you have a real heavy wetter or want to use it for over night. I love when a diaper is versatile enough to use at all times during the day.
This diaper was used during the day with great results, did wonderful with nap time with nothing extra added, and did not leak through even at night with just one extra insert. It washed and dried so wonderfully as well. It dried so fast, most of my all in one diapers take at least two cycles and this one was just amazing and dried completely in one cycle.
There are a lot of cloth diapers out there, from styles to colors, to types and brands, but I have to say the Bummis is one of the best All in One Diapers I have seen and they are perfect for new users to cloth because of their ease of use on the baby and in the washer and dryer.
The organic cotton fabric on the interior of the diaper is designed to shrink slightly during the first washes and create a natural gussets for a secure and leak proof fit.
