We are now open. We are so excited to bring you such a great cloth line. I have been listening to what parents are wanting in a cloth diaper- no leaks, good fit, soft on the baby's skin, easy to clean, easy to use, and $$ efficient. I know you will find these qualities in our product line. No leaks - The diaper has elastic in the front of the diaper rise as well as the back. This helps tailor the fit and eliminate gaps on the top of the diaper. Soft on the baby's skin- The shell is lined with micro fleece and our Bum Pads are made from an organic cotton and bamboo blend talk about soft. Easy to clean- Our Bum Pads snap in the shell with 2 side by side snaps located in the front of the diaper. Simply snap out the dirty and snap in a clean (no more trying to get an insert from inside a soiled pocket diaper)The snaps are discreetly placed in the front of the diaper (no worry trying to unsnap from the back of a soiled diaper) Need extra absorbency- snap 2 Bum Pads together and then snap them into the diaper. Easy to Use- Aplix closure makes for a quick change for babies on the go. The Aplix (Vecro) does not come onto contact with babies skin and is secure enough to prevent siblings from snatching off the diaper. $$ Efficient- Using cloth diapers will save you at least $1800 per child. WOW- Using Bum Essentials will save even more since you don't need as many shells just extra inserts. Just think of what you can do with the extra $$$. Buy our A-Z Kit today. It is a great way to get started and save.

We are open.

To Cloth or Not to Cloth that is the Question?

YES Cloth, Cloth, Cloth- That is the answer. I am questioned daily from new users or want to be users about WHY CLOTH. There are so many reasons to use cloth diapers on your baby. Some are concerned it will be hard or messy. I can completely understand where you would think it is hard and messy but truth is it just isn't hard and messy. I do believe if you are used to disposables it is a little different. If you do use disposables I am willing to bet you tried several kinds before you found one that worked for you. If you have more than one child you may have repeated this process and used a different diaper brand for each child. Cloth is the same. You will discover one fits your baby better and you will like certain features of other styles. Still it is well worth exploring. Today's styles are easy to use with out mastering the pin to keep them in place. This is one of the features I like about our diaper. Snap in an insert (2 quick snaps) and you are ready to go.
Now lets address the "messy" part. Did you know you are supposed to "shake waste into the toilet before disposing" for all disposable diapers. So cloth is the same. Then you put your diaper into the diaper pail instead of the trash until wash day. This is where I say "I love our diaper line". I don't like mess either. The easier it is to clean the happier I am. Once again the 2 snaps make it easy to remove from the diaper. Our Bum Bag fits into any 8 gallon trash can or diaper pail. So put your soiled diaper or bum pads in to the reusable bag. The Bamboo bum pads are mildew resistant so you don't have to rush to clean.
Newer (past 8 years) washing machines make washing your own diapers easy. It is way back when that made washing your own diapers difficult.
So if you haven't already done so - try a modern cloth diaper. Actually try one of our cloth diapers. I am sure you will be glad you did.

Bum Essentials: Health

Bum Essentials: Health


I will say from personal experience. Cloth Diapers greatly reduces/eliminates diaper rash. So my personal testimony that cloth is healthier for your baby when it comes to diaper rash. Now I have been doing some research about "dioxins". There is a lot of info about the harm that can come from this chemical. The ? that remains is how much of an impact does this have on the health of our babies. Here is a borrowed statement-

"The latest buzz in child-care products to hit global news is the link between dioxins, disposable diapers, and health care issues. Could that diaper you're wrapping around your baby's bottom be one that increases the risk of skin irritation and diaper rash? Even worse to consider is the question whether the dioxins disposable diapers contain cause cancer or immune system depression. Those are scary thoughts for a new parent wanting to give baby the best."

If you are wanting more information there is a link to where I picked up this statement.

Environmentally Friendly

"It is estimated that roughly 5 million tons of untreated waste and a total of 2 billion tons of urine, feces, plastic and paper are added to landfills annually. It takes around 80,000 pounds of plastic and over 200,000 trees a year to manufacture the disposable diapers for American babies alone. Although some disposables are said to be biodegradable; in order for these diapers to decompose, they must be exposed to air (oxygen) and sun. Since this is highly unlikely, it can take several hundred years for the decomposition of disposables to take place, with some of the plastic material never decomposing."
I borrowed this statement from another website. I have found many statements that are similar. I had never really thought about just how big of an impact disposable diapers make on our environment. Babies aren't going to go away but the choices we make can impact our world.
