If you have been following this blog, you know that I love cloth diapering my children! I’m always happy to share my experiences with products, especially with new mamas! This time, I’m reviewing a “Bummis Dimple Fitted Diaper.” I received this diaper for free, courtesy of Bummis, but my opinions are my own.
I’m a two-time cloth-diapering mama. I’ve used almost every system out there, from old-fashioned birdseye flats and dritz pins, prefolds, bamboo fitteds, china cheapies, and (my favourite) pocket diapers by Applecheeks and AMP (annie marie padorie). I know what I’m doing, and tend to be an evangelist.
Is 13 months old, 32″ tall and about 21 lbs (tall and slim with normal thighs). She’s always been an extremely heavy wetter (12-15 diapers a day, close to 40 a day as a young baby), and is VERY sensitive to wetness and tight elastics.
Bummis Dimple Fitted Diaper Review
Bummis Dimple Diapers are fitted diapers, meaning that the entire diaper is made of absorbent material and contoured to fit baby. A separate cover (we were sent the “Bummis Whisper Wrap” cover) is put on top and is required to keep your baby’s clothing dry. This diaper is made in Canada from soft, organic, American-grown cotton with a waffle-weave texture, and comes with a separate booster (small absorbent liner) that you can place on top to keep baby dry. The Bummis Dimple diaper is a one-size diaper, made to fit 10-30 lbs.
What I love about Bummis Dimple Fitted Diaper:
- Trimness! Some fitted diapers can be quite bulky
- Strong but simple snaps, easy for caregivers
- Soft, waffle-weave texture
- Natural fibers instead of microfiber means fewer potential stink problems!
- Washes well
- Absorbent enough for nighttime use for our heavy wetter
- I felt that this diaper was a little stiff for my liking. It was hard to tell if it was because of the thickness of the fabric (which makes the diaper so absorbent), or the elastics around the waist and legs. It kind of felt like putting a soft-textured but stiff shell onto my baby, perhaps because the wings weren’t very stretchy when pulled around to snap. I am used to stretchy wings on my pocket diapers (which are made of stretchy PUL), so this may be a personal “con.”
- The “stay-dry” side of the included booster was not clearly marked.
- VERY expensive for a fitted. Currently the Dimple Diaper retails for around $33 Canadian before tax.
Would I recommend these to others?
Yes, if budget allows. These diapers are very well made, and absorbent.
Would I recommend someone to make a whole stash of just these? Maybe a couple for night, but not for an entire stash. If you are looking for a fitteds, there are softer, more absorbent and affordable fitted diapers out there to base a whole stash upon (try Mother-Ease!)
