I recently got the pleasure of reviewing a pretty unique cloth diaper made by Bum Essentials . The Bum Essentials cloth diapers are one size fits all. They have snaps in the front so you can adjust the rise to the babies size. Next while this diaper reminds me a lot of an AIO it isn’t its more like a pocket but its not that either. It is a hybrid of both taking the best features that each has to offer, combining them to create one super diaper! The Bum Essentials cloth diaper does not have a pocket yet you can still choose the absorbency and thickness of the diaper you would like. You can decide how many and which size bum pads you would like in the diaper. Giving you not only the perfect fit but the perfect diaper as a whole for the task at hand. By the way I took out the soaker completely and used these as swim diapers in our little kiddie pool in the backyard it worked WONDERFULLY! Another great thing about this diaper is that the drying time is so fast. One of the reasons I stay away from AIO is the drying time with Bum Essentials the drying time is fast and easy. The Bum Essentials are great diapers the only thing I wish they offered were snap closures as well as aplix. I know you get a better fit most of the time with aplix but I personally prefer snap closures so having the option would be nice.

Here are some tips from the Bum Essentials Blog that really are good for any diaper.
Now that you are experiencing your Bumbino Diaper I thought I would share a few tips on making sure it is well cared for. These tips are also useful for any velcro one size diaper. I do have experience in this department or at least from the other end. LOL I am usually the one that waits as long as possible to do the laundry and I don’t always follow the care directions. Maybe I should say there are others in my household who don’t always follow the care for rules and I don’t realize until I take them (all at onetime) out of the washer. My fluffy stash does survive, however if you want your Fluffy Stash to be looking close to new here are some great tips to keep it lasting.
1- ALWAYS Fold back the laundry tabs. This will prevent the daisy chain from coming out of the washer. It may make less work if they are all tied up and one long chain that lifts straight from the washer to the dryer BUT it will damage the tabs over time and it can also pick the diapers.
2-Use the Snaps Carefully- Don’t grab and pull as hard as you can on the material to unsnap the Bum Pads from the micro-fleece. The snaps are there to help stabilize the inserts to make it easy to put on. Micro-fleece is a durable material that does not tear easily but that doesn’t mean you can use brute force and rip the Bum pads straight out of the diaper. Hold as close to the snaps and then unsnap.(this is why there are no snaps in the back of our Bumbino- I really don’t want to get that close to poop) The same is true for the adjustable snaps on the front of the diaper. It is best you hold closely to the snaps when unsnapping. This is good info for any diaper.
3-Detach Bum Pads from Bumbino prior to Washing and Drying- You will have those heavy wet pads pulling on your diaper as it tosses around your washer and dryer. This will become even more of a mess if you haven’t secured the laundry tabs.
4-Bleach and Fabric Softner will breakdown Material overtime- I use bleach on my Hubby’s T-shirts and after a few months they are see thru so Just imagine what it could do to your Fluffy Stash. Fabric softener also eats away the material plus it is usually loaded with perfumes that could irritate your baby.
5-Carefully select your detergent- you want to avoid a lot of stain removing properties and enzymes. Click here for a laundry chart guide.
6-Don’t dry on Scorching Temperatures- When possible line dry. This not only saves your diapers but it saves on energy and there is nothing like a good ole sun bleaching. The sun can naturally bleach your inserts and kill bacteria.

There you have it- Your Bumbino can stay as good as the day you first opened it.
