Diaper Review and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

My first Giveaway! I am giddy with excitement!

We have been cloth diapering for about eight years now. We don't exclusively cloth diaper, but we use them frequently. During the last eight years, we have tried probably a dozen different types of cloth diapers.

I was so thrilled to receive a free bummis (pronounced bum-eez) diaper to try and review. I received one Easy Fit diaper designed for babies 8 to 35 pounds. What is unique about the Easy Fit is that it has this attached stuffable liner that is SUPER easy to get into the diaper. You literally stuff it into the pocket. Since it is attached, there is no hunting for the liner in a basket of diapers. You can also get creative and fold the liner in the place where your baby needs the most protection. Or double up with additional liners if you like.

The liner is super absorbant since it is made from bamboo fibers that absorb a lot faster than cotton. And the part that touches your baby's skin is as soft as silk. And it keeps getting softer- wash after wash after wash.


The diaper is super cute! Check my two-year-old in her cute new diaper. To see other products from bummis, click here.


So how did the diaper do as compared to the other diapers we use?

AMAZING!

During our review period, Margo went through about a week of stomach troubles. The kind of troubles that mean a lot of diaper changes. As a rule I usually switch to disposible for this time. Since I was reviewing this diaper, I decided to see how it would withstand a true diaper challenge.


Not only did the bummis Easy Fit hold in all the potty mess without a single leak, but is washed out as clean as ever. No stains or smells remained. And I didn't even use a flushable insert! Or additional liners! Now that is impressive.

Now that I know the benefits of this wonderful bummis diaper, you can bet I will be stocking up for the arrival of baby number 5 in the spring. Breastfed babies always have the messiest diapers, but now I know that bummis Easy Fit will manage perfectly!
