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.

Below is my cutie modelling it when she was around 7 months old (so, 18ish pounds).What I like:great microfiber liner – it’s never leaked and it’s quite absorbantthe pocket opening is in the front of the diaper which is good for poopy Read more […]

My Cloth Diaper Biases

I figured I might as well do a quick post on my general feelings about cloth diapers before I post my first review. There are two major decisions you’ll have to make before you make your first cloth diaper purchase: snaps or Velcro and one-size or sized diapers.Snaps vs VelcroI prefer snaps. Lots of other people prefer Velcro. It’s going to be something you have to figure out for yourself, unfortunately. It’s easier to explain why I don’t like Velcro:the tabs can get ratty looking really quicklyif Read more […]
