Remember several weeks ago I had the Bumbino at the Beach. Well here is the picture after use. If you recall or read a previous posting I had used my Rockin Red Bumbino at the beach. I do know there are swim diapers (we currently don't make one) and truth be said there is a difference between a swim diaper and a cloth diaper. However we were showing off our Bumbino at the beach. For beach use I would still likely use my Bumbino simply for the fit. Let me remind you that after hard play in and out of the water and throwing sand I knew my little fellow was going to be covered in sand inside the diaper. He certainly was covered in sand outside the diaper. Much to my surprise when I took the diaper off only maybe 2 grains of sand. He had been a happy little fellow playing and he should have been. He was totally comfortable. Now look at this picture. See the sand is around the elastic- that tummy elastic kept the sand from going in. That tummy elastic does a great job at contouring the tummy. You can also see the rest of the diaper. That day I had left the inserts in -maybe not the best idea but oh well. They are white with a couple of specks of sand. The proof is in the Picture! Bumbino keeps sand out and potty in. lol Truly a leak free diaper.

A Bumbino is making it's way to LA. This is not the first person in LA to have a Bumbino but it is the first actress that I am aware of. "Mrs. Knight" is the character that Challen Cates plays on Nick's show "Big Time Rush". If you have not seen the show yet it is cute. It is a little out of the ordinary in a nice way and well worth the watch. Well anyway she was wanting to try out a Bumbino for her daughter who is just about a 1 1/2 years old. She is familiar with our line but had not actually used cloth diapers before. She is well aware of the health impact and is very concerned about environmental issues and this is what has led her to try Bum Essentials cloth diapers. She had been using sposies but as natural as a sposie can get. She has promised feedback on her cloth experience. Well be awaiting her review. I am glad to be a part of her cloth diapering experience as I am any new parent who makes the change. I am also excited to know the Bumbino will have a face in Hollywood. Cloth Diapers Rock.

Our family had a great holiday weekend. We spent 3 nights away from home. For a family of 6 can you imagine packing. Yes it was a chore and a whole bunch of clothes. You have to have a few extra of everything just in case. We did use some of our just in case too. Typically we would take trash bags for all the dirtys and for 3 nights and 4 days that would be 2-3 trash bags (kitchen size not lawn size-lol) Well why use plastic when you have the Bum Bag. I took 1 laundry size Bum Bag with us- just in case you want to know it was the Giddy- up- Green and Sunshine Yellow. What was I thinking just 1 Bum Bag. There were 2 adults and 4 kids for 3 nights 4 days. Oh well each day I put all the dirty laundry in there. Each day there was still room. On our last day there I picked up the rest of the laundry spread out through the hotel room and headed for the faithful Bum Bag. That one bag held all of our dirty laundry acquired during our trip. I was impressed. I could even draw the string closed enough to prevent any from spilling out. I think my husband was even impressed. He was at least thankful he only had to carry that one bag out to the car. Keep this in mind while traveling this summer. It makes an awesome laundry bag.
