Have you heard of Bumbini? If you haven’t discovered Bumbini yet then you were missing out. Bumbini online cloth diaper boutique is based in Ottawa and sells throughout Canada and the US. They have the knowledge and resources to help anyone interested in discovering how amazing cloth diapering can be. They carry a wide variety different styles to suit every budget. They believe in all the diapers and accessories they carry and let me tell you they carry everything!
Not sure if cloth diapering is for you? Bumbini not only has a Newborn Rental Program but they also have a Diaper Trial Program. The newborn rental program is perfect if you want to cloth diaper from birth but you don’t want to invest in a whole newborn stash that will only be used for a short period of time. When they say “try all the diapers” they aren’t kidding! The diaper trial program allows you to try tons of brands and styles . This way you can get a feel for what works best for you and your baby. Unfortunately these programs are only offered to Canadian residents, hopefully one day they will be able to offer these to the US as well. Not only can Bumbini get you started with these incredible programs, but they also have amazing workshops to help you learn all that you need to know. If you live in Canada you can attend these free workshops in person. If getting to a workshop location isn’t a option, then Bumbini offers an Online Cloth Diaper Workshop. Make sure to check their blog to read helpful tips, new product information and more.
Are you expecting? Bumbini has a gift registry option making it so easy for you to build a registry and easy for friends and family to shop from it. Why didn’t I know about this when I was pregnant? Had I used a Bumbini registry I would have been able to pick from so many brands. I feel that people who weren’t familiar with cloth diapers (thinking it’s still flats, diaper pins and rubber pants) would have been introduced to the beauty of modern cloth diapers.

Bumbini gave me the opportunity to review a Bummis AIO diaper as well as a Bummis One-size Swim diaper, just two of the many diapers they carry.
Bummis All In One
This is the first time I am trying a All in One diaper and I must say I love how simple Bummis AIO is. This diaper is perfect for babysitters, grandparents and anyone new to cloth diapering since it takes all the guess work out. Bummis AIO ready to go straight from the dryer, or in my case straight from the clothes line. There is no matching inserts to diaper, making diaper laundry even easier for my husband (yes I know how lucky I am to have a husband that isn’t afraid of diaper laundry). The inside of the diaper does have a pocket like sleeve allowing you to either lay the attached insert on top of the pocket putting the stay dry fabric next to babies skin or tuck it into the pocket leaving the organic cotton next to the skin. Right now I just lay the insert inside of the diaper. This saves me the step of stuffing before using and un-stuffing before washing. The option of un- stuffing the attached insert is one of my favorite features since I choose to line dry my diapers, being able to un-stuff the tongue of the diaper speeds up drying time (drying is one of the main reasons why I was always afraid to try a AIO) .
Bummis AIO is a very trim diaper, fitting 8-35 pounds. With four different rise sizing options and nice leg and back elastics you can easily customize the fit to your baby . My only complaint is that there is only 2 rows of rise snaps. I tend to get a bulge in the middle that I feel a third row would prevent this. As my baby grows this will be less of a problem since we wont need to keep the diaper snapped to such a small size.
Can we talk about how cute these patterns are. I was instantly drawn to Vinyl Records since not only does my husband have quit the collection of records, he loves to share his love of music with our daughter.
Bummis One Size Swim Diaper
Even the families that don’t cloth diaper (I know, it’s hard to believe that there are still non cloth diapering families) have a need for a reusable cloth swim diaper. Bummis one-size swim diaper is our go to this summer, and since it fits 10-35 pounds it will be used for the next couple years. With double gusset leg elastics, 4 rise sizing options and 6 waist snaps you will easily get a great fit. I feel a swim diaper that snaps on is 100% necessary because let’s face it once the your baby gets into the water trying to slide a wet diaper off (god forbid it contains poop) is nearly impossible. Bummis one-size swim diaper is specially engineered to hold solids in but allow liquids to pass through. The inside lining is made of super soft polyester making this not only comfortable for baby but extremely easy to clean. Bummis swim diaper is perfect for swim lessons, public pools and back yard fun!
