bumGenius Elemental One-Size All-in-One Cloth Diaper Review

23 01 2012

NOW Family provided me with two brand new bumGenius Elemental snap cloth diapers in Clementine and Moonbeam. It’s organic. These babies retail for in the $20 and $30s a piece.

Baby Sage was the winner of their Santa Baby photo contest; these would be used for him!

Now,  Sage already had several of the older bumGenius diapers, in the touch-tape, velcro-like attachments. We got them secondhand and they quickly became Dad’s favorite cloth diaper, so I was very excited to try the new version.

The old version is a pocket diaper, but the outer layer is waterproof and the inner layer is so thick and absorbent (yet, fit is always trim) that you really don’t have to use inserts or liners at all. I never have to use diaper covers with bumGenius, either.

This new version had a different set-up. At first I thought it was an odd configuration, but then I realized it still allowed for liners to be used if preferred (slip between the slots– but, not necessary!).

So, we put Sage in the first diaper and confidently went out shopping. We’re a family of five and live in a rural area, so shopping excursions with our child, toddler, and infant can take awhile.

Five hours later…

Um, doesn’t Sage need a dipe? Yes…

Daddy lovingly checked it out for me and replaced with a clean diaper. But, what you need to know is, there was NO leakage or problems of any kind, whatsoever. And yes, that was after being in the diaper for about 5 hours! Sage was nine months old at the time, breastfed and trying solid foods. Sage was very content the entire time in his diaper, and his bum’s in good shape.

So, needless to say, Mommy and Daddy both love the new version of bumGenius cloth diapers. Thanks to NOW Family for giving us a wonderful prize, and the opportunity regularly for people to win awesome stuff like this!

I think this diaper would be great for:  newbies who want to see how convenient modern cloth diapering actually is, as well as seasoned vets who appreciate the best dipes on the market. So, pretty much any cloth diaperer. Also great for the bedtime dipe– baby stays content all night, everybody wakes up dry.
