Bum Genius 3.0 Cloth Diapers ~ my personal review

The Diaper:

Bum Genius 3.0. This is the only cloth diaper that I own that has Velcro instead of snaps. It comes with a standard insert and a newborn insert that can be used alone when you have the diaper on the smallest setting, or as a doubler (ie extra stuffing/absorbancy) if you have a heavy wetter or for overnights. My little girl at 3.5 months old and about 13 pounds modelling her BumGenius.


What I like:
  • the microfiber inserts are great, I’ve never had to double it up
  • the Velcro does make it easy to do up
  • it’s very stretchy so it’s easy to get a good tight fit
  • quite trim
  • no leaks!

Not a fan:

  • after only 8 months of use, the laundry tabs are totally worn out and don’t work anymore, so the Velcro tabs get stuck on all the other diapers in the wash
  • The Velcro tabs roll a bit on the edges
  • Bum Genius only does solid colours, no fun prints

Overall opinion:

If it wasn’t for the Velcro, I’d love it. The fit is great, and the diaper itself I have no complaints about, so in the future I’d just get one with a snap closure instead. Bum Genius also makes the Flip cloth diaper system, which I will be posting a review on later.
