Isn’t it cute? Ours looks just like this, and the print made us coo and squeal when it arrived. Even Bethany was pleased, patting her diaper all day to remind us that the cover was new and pretty. We have plenty of simple, respectable diaper covers that do a perfectly adequate job, but the cute ones like this really make cloth diapering a pleasure!
We found our Bummis covers to be simple, well-designed, and effective. We had no leakage problems. They have gusseted legs, which I think are essential with prefolds. They have laundry tabs, which we all should learn to use consistently.
I love the nifty crossover feature, which stretches the sizing by allowing you to cross the velcro tabs over each other. Obvious and ingenious!
We also got a beautiful wet bag to hold used diapers and wet clothes. When not in use, it takes very little room inside the diaper bag. Once it begins to fill up, we can use the snap-strap to attach it to the outside of the diaper bag. The triple seams and zipper closure keep odor, wetness and mess safely inside, and bag itself can be dropped right into the washer along with the contents. For the first time in my married life, I am not using all the grocery sacks that come home with groceries. I just might switch to reusable grocery sacks, a greener habit than I ever expected of myself.
But in spite of the solid quality, features and sheer cuteness of their products, where Bummis really shines is customer service! I was committed to using cloth diapers but getting discouraged by our persistent stinky problem. Even after several washes and rinses, even with plenty of sunning, my diapers still stunk. The ladies at Bummis picked up on this and volunteered their time to help me find the problem. They asked questions, offered advice, sent free PDFs on the subject, and persisted until we found the problem. They are committed to helping their customers and making cloth diapering a pleasure. This takes more than a cute cover, and they are willing to put out the effort.
disclosure: If you must know, I received these products free for review. I requested them myself, because I really wanted them.by
