Speaking of moisture, that is one of the biggest factors in how much I like a diaper. Does it contain moisture and poop? How well does it prevent leaks and blowouts? One would assume all diapers are created equal when it comes to this feature (because that basically is a cloth diaper’s #1 job; the #2 job is to look cute!) however that is not necessarily the case. The effectiveness of a cloth diaper mostly depends on 1) the design of it and 2) the fit of it. BumGenius has perfected their design to the point where I cannot even think of suggestions for improvement. The 3×3 snap design, hook and loop or snap closure, and two sizes of inserts, allow you a custom fit diaper every time and at each stage of growth. I have had ZERO incidents of leaks or blowouts with my bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper!
Another important feature of a diaper is how trim it fits. A bulky diaper is cumbersome on baby and to pack in a diaper bag. A bulky diaper can impede baby’s movement and impact how clothing fits on a baby. A nice trim fitting diaper is definitely preferred, especially once baby is mobile. Here’s my active 11 month old wearing a bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper on the largest setting. You can clearly see how trim fitting is in these pictures.
A pocket diaper is a diaper that has an opening in it that you stuff with an insert which creates the absorbent layers of the diaper. The bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper comes with TWO inserts. A small one to use with newborns and a large one to use with growing baby. Or you can use both inserts for an older baby who is a heavy wetter or needs extra protection at night. Currently I use the newborn insert with other diapers and the larger insert folded down with my bumGenius. Here are two pictures to show you the two different sizes of inserts that come with the bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper:
The bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper is my favorite diaper for on the go because I am fully confident in it! Plus it is fast to diaper baby with and the trim design packs well. The colors and prints also deserve honorable mention because they are gorgeous. Overall I give it stars!!!
