FLUFF BUTT: Bummis

When I first heard about peopleLink still CDing I imagined prefolds... and I was SCARED! :)
I couldn't imagine using JUST a square piece of fabric as a diaper.
But in keeping with the whole purpose of the Fluff Butt Event I knew that I should try them,
so I contacted Bummis.

bummis

Bummis was SUPER awesome enough to send me a 6 pack of the Organic prefolds in infant size, a medium Super Brite cover, a medium Super Whisper Wrap cover, a package of Bio-soft liners, and a Fabulous Wetbag for review purposes. One thing I really really love and appreciate about Bummis is all of the literature that they sent with the order. I had every bit of information that I needed at my fingertips. I followed the instructions for prep and get them ready for use.

The first fold I tried was the tri-fold. Super easy peasy pie. Just fold the prefold into thirds and place it in the cover. You can also stick a doubler in for night time use. This fold works extremely well for us... especially with the doubler for nights. The only con is that it is very bulky.

The other fold I use is the newspaper fold. Its like a grown-up version of the tri-fold... just folded to leave wings so wrap around babies body to snappi into place! This one is a bit complicated when you have a super wiggly nine month old.

LinkThe Diaper Hyena ::  Prefold Step #5


At first I was very intimidated by the prefolds and stuck to the trifold stuffed into a cover. When this worked well I began to branch out. I've really come to love my Bummis prefolds with Bummis covers for overnight use. I NEVER have leaks with this combination... even if I forget the doubler.

Also, the Bummis Super Brite cover and Whisper Wrap cover are two of my very favorite CD covers. I love the thickness of the fabric. The Thirsties Duo feels very flimsy in comparision.

The Fabulous Wet Bag is everything it's name claims! Its fanflippintastic! I never have to worry about leakage. I love that it has a loop handle. My other wetbag does not feature any kind of handle and I've come to favor the Bummis one over it. I like that I can hang it up if need be.

All in all, I'm so impressed with Bummis. They're products are wonderfully made, fit fantastic, and I love that the covers have print options. I will definitely continue to use my prefolds... and stock up on smaller sizes for future babies <3 hehe.

Not only was Bummis generous enough to provide product for review...
They are also providing one reader the opportunity to try the same products that I received!

I've used prefolds occasionally but they were just the cheap Gerber ones, and my experience wasn't too bad. I'd really like to try some good quality ones, especially in the early newborn stages with baby #2.
I love how cost effective and versatile they are!

I tried cheap prefolds with my son when he was a newborn (before I knew there were better things out there...) like twice and hated it and didn't try cloth again until he was 17 months old. At that point I tried pockets and definitely prefer them. I would love to try prefolds again with my baby due in February, but I would have to have a brand that wasnt the cheap kind!

My mother bought me a pack of prefolds by Gerber and they look very intimidating I'm not sure I'm ready to try them out yet.

Prefolds seem cost effective but very intimidating.

Our first baby is due at the end of February, and we're planning on using prefolds almost exclusively for the first little while. Hopefully we like them! :)

I'd like to try the bamboozle. That looks like it would be very comfortable for the baby.

I have not really used prefolds much. We used disposables that were given to us for the first few weeks. I do have a bambino Mio that is a prefold with a cover and love it, esp. for night time. I would love to get some of these for future baby, as I would like to skip the disposables this next time.

I think prefolds are ok. They work fine when used with a Thirsties cover and changed frequently. They were the main part of my stash for a long time, but I'm so glad that they are on the back of the shelf now!

The first 5 months after my son was born, we used prefolds almost exclusivly. I only have 2 that fit him now as 15 month old, but they are my trusty night time stand by. I will not hesitate to use them again when we have another child.

I love all of the Bummis products we have tried: 2 wet bags, the Super Brite, the Super Whisper Wraps and the Swimmi. The one product of theirs I haven't tried and would love to is Bamboozle. When we were building our stash I didn't know how well bamboo works for our heavy wetter!

I have never used prefolds mostly because i didnt start using cloth with my daughter untill she was 13 months. But i plan on trying them with my son I already have a hand full of them. I am intimidated by them and plan to start with trifolding the and then venture on to other folds!

I've used a few prefolds on friends babies but not very often. I like that you can still use the cover and just replace the prefold on the inside if the cover is not soiled.
