Meet the Bummis Dimple Diaper, Flannel Fitted and Super Whisper Wrap Cover!
Oh, the softness! What was inside was so squishy soft even through the poly mailer! Not one, but TWO Bummis diapers and a cover! I squealed out loud. I have always heard so many good things about Bummis diapers and customer service, but I’ve never had an opportunity to purchase any for myself. I was missing out!
The Bummis flannel fitted is soft and absorbent. This cloth diaper fit my girl with room left to grow. It has 3 rise options and, at almost 18 months, we had the rise snapped down to the medium setting and the wings almost touching in the middle. The left tab has an outward snap to allow for crossover to fit smaller babes. The 100% cotton sherpa inner is plush and kept the elastics from digging into her legs, which made it more comfortable for her to wear.
I was not sure about the snap placement as there are no hip snaps to prevent wing droop, but the fit was so good that there was never a problem. This design also saves the effort of securing extra snaps when your busy toddler is trying to dive off the changing table.
The soaker layer is sewn in between the flannel print and the sherpa inner layer. Because of this, it can take more time to line dry than some other diapers. It took 18-24 hours to hang-dry indoors….still not bad in my book, but would likely dry much faster outdoors! The one-piece fitted also saves the step of matching up soakers to diapers after the wash.
I also received the new Dimple Diaper! Not only is that super fun to say, it’s another excellent product! The Dimple Diaper is made of very soft and THIRSTY organic cotton custom designed by Bummis. You won’t likely find any other diapers like this, it makes a very trim daytime fitted that I think you’ll love. Add the booster with a reverse stay-dry side and the Dimple Diaper lives up to the claims of a “perfect overnight solution.”
The cut, sizing and snap placement is similar to the Flannel Fitted. Once again I assumed the wings would droop but they did not droop as I expected which testifies to the great thought and experience put into their designs. The slightly longer drying time was worth the trade off for a one-piece easy-to-use fitted diaper.
Both of the Bummis Fitteds can be perfectly accompanied by the Bummis Super Whisper Wrap. The hook-and-loop closure allows for a perfect fit every time and the gussets with soft knit binding held in all of Leah’s “messes” without leaving her with red marks. It is generously sized and also fit beautifully over a larger fitted diaper from our stash.
There was a lot of thought and experience put into designing these products. From the wide back elastic adding extra comfort to the array of adorable prints and locally sourced materials, these products exemplify all the quality and innovation we have come to expect from Bummis!
Where to buy Bummis Diapers?
I have been married to Noah for 11 years and I work from home while raising and homeschooling our 3 children, Alistair, Ronan and Leah.
We are “outside-dig-in-the-dirt type people.” (Someone actually called us that once). We enjoy all sorts of adventures like hiking, biking, camping and just staying close to home experiencing all the coastal Virginia has to offer!
I began cloth diapering shortly after my second son was born as a way to save our family money. I set out to learn how to sew and, within a month, I had a start-up stash that would last me 2 days between washing! As I ventured out into commercially available diapers, I became addicted and tried to find as many different fabrics and styles as I could. Many people thought I was crazy when the words “cloth diapers” came out of my mouth, but they were all amazed when they realized how simple it actually was. (And how much money we were saving by diapering this way!)
My obsession has become my passion and I now spend most of my free time talking to parents and other caregivers about the benefits of cloth diapering. I organize community outreach events to help parents sort out the mass of CD information and encourage them to find a system that works for their lifestyle. I also advocate for cloth diaper use whenever possible as a real world solution to ever-tightening family budgets and overloaded landfills.
