My husband hooked up the BG sprayer today - it seems pretty nifty! I didn't know so many products were made by the makers of BumGenius (like BabyLegs)! Interesting! I'm hoping to convince my husband that cloth diapers are the way to go when baby comes in February...he is skeptical. I'm thinking the BumGenius ones might be easiest for him to use on our baby and figure out. *fingers crossed*

Serena said...

bumGenius is virtually "THE" one-size fits all diaper! I've recently seen and heard from many new moms who have had leaking problems with their newborns diapers but after trying a BG they were amazed at how well it performed!

Personally, I was so heart-set on the BG I had ordered nearly 40 of them from Kelly thus far! It took me awhile to finally branch out and *test* other brands because I truly did love the BG. While I'm happy to have finally taken the plunge with other brands and types of CD- the BG remains my workhorse and is my dedicated nighttime diaper!

Shawna said...

Wow.. thanks so much for all that info! :)

Angela said...

I love these diapers. We have the BG 3.0 and my 9yo son even changes them. I wish I would have found them before baby #4:)

holly christine said...

this is the first time i've read that cloth wipes could be used in a wipe warmer...can you tell me how? is it only a specific kind?thanks:)

team krasean said...

I bought several BumGenius 3.0 for my third baby because I wanted to start cloth diapering overnight (which I didn't do with kids 1 and 2!!). Anyway, the BumGenius have worked perfectly. I would recommend them to anyone starting out with cloth diapering!

Cassie said...

Thanks for all the info on the bumGenius, it helps with finding the right cloth diapers for me.

Kelly Wels said...

Hi Holly Christine,
Basically you fold the wipes in half. We recommend the wipes warmer by Prince Lionheart.

Senior Family said...

BG rock!! I really want to try a OS AIO :) and i did not know their AIO -sized was now stuffable how cool !!!

Sara in Seattle said...

We love the BumGenius, especially at night since you can layer them up so well, and they fit our baby so well!

Leigh Anne said...

Thanks for doing a BG product focus! I've been wanting to use these for a while now. We've been using PFs and Thirsties covers. I've been looking for a good AIO diaper and have heard good things about BG 3.0. I am hoping to purchase some soon.

one day in the life of me said...

I receive my BG diaper in the mail on Friday. I LOVE IT! It fits my dd better than the FB's. It looks like we will be making a switch soon.

Megan said...

I was just thinking this morning that I would like a product focus on BG diapers. That is what we are planning to use when our first makes his/her arrival in February. Thanks!

Angela said...

The wipes warmer is so easy to do... you can fold any cloth wipes in half or if they are larger, in thirds and place in the warmer(you want the ones with the pillow in the bottom, I think mine is EverFresh) I put in about 2 cups of water and one Babybits. It holds about 18-24 wipes and keeps them wet and warm for baby. My daught hates having cold ones now that she has been spoiled with worm wipes:)

Kelly said...

I love my BG diapers. I never have leaks and they are pretty trim. They are super absorbent and very easy to use, and I love there newer colors! I also have the diaper sprayer and it is awesome. In addition to using it for dirty diapers, I also use it for cleaning out the tub, rinsing my diaper pail, and a handful of other things. My next "to buy" item will be Baby Legs for sure! And when I have a second baby, I might buy some of the fitteds.

Katie said...

Kelly,
My husband was skeptical too. I even kept disposable diapers around, so that he could use those. It took him a little, but he loves using the cloth diapers now and even cleans the poopy ones!

Tanya said...

I LOVE my bumgenius one size diapers. They are the best. 'm slowly building my stash as I can afford to. I love that both my newborn and my toddler can use them comfortably. The new colors are very nice as well. Hoping they add even more soon.

mommasboys said...

I love your organic diap, it looks so soft! I actually have a couple of your 3.0 pockets and i really like how your larger flap covers the insert, unlike most others. They were actually the first cloth diaper i ever tried, and I am so glad that it was yours. If I had tried any of the others i have first, i probably would not have decided to make the switch to cloth. 6 mths now and still going strong, too bad it took me so long to figure out how great cloth is! Thank you!

Violet Gonzalez said...

I use BG one size on my 16.5 lb 4 month old on the largest setting. I am have trouble determining what size to get for their AIO. Any thoughts?

Dani said...

bumGenius makes a great line of products, I've tried a few and your post makes me want to spend some of my christmas money! The new stuffable AIO is intriguing, my first CD's to use on B were the BG AIO, so I would love to try their new and updated version.

Their diaper sprayer is by far the best investment (aside from the actual CD's) we made. My husband is quite impressed with it, and I know that he would not be CDing without.

Thanks for the great post today! I'm off to visit Kelly's Closet....

Amanda said...

I missed out on using BG with dd (she's 3.5 and I already had a complete stash by the time they released their first dipes.) Two of my cd'ing converts used them and loved them, though, so I've bought a couple to try with this baby coming soon. I also have some babylegs and had no idea they were from the same folks -- geniuses, I tell ya!

EdenSky said...

bumGenius diapers really are awesome. I'm very happy to see they are branching out into more natural options with the organics and bamboo. I have heard they are coming out with a snap version too, is that true?

Shari & Andrew said...

I love love love the BG one size! This has become a staple product of our stash--it's very "huband friendly" and even the grandparents love using it! It's just as easy as a sposie!

Jess said...

I started out on BG3.0s & LOVE them I also really really love the bamboo fitteds soooo nice! The diaper sprayer is sooooo easy to use! I dunno about the bum spray my lil one gets a rash every time I use it so it sits in the dresser
Thanks for doing a focus on Jenn/CottonBabies & BG :)

Kira said...

I love my BG OS and am really interested in the organic one-size AIO. Does anyone have any feedback? Since they're quite a bit more expensive, I'd like to hear how people like them before I start adding them to my stash...

Erika said...

Wow- thanks for the Product Focus. That's great
to read about ALL their products.

I've already ordered a bunch of BG's b/c of the rave reviews but I'm also trying out other brands as well.

I can't wait for baby to come!!! Who knew I'd be this excited about diapers?!?

the momma said...

I love our BG 3.0 one size dipes and the diaper sprayer! They are fabulous!

MommyCat said...

I was so happy to see this product focus, I'm just getting started at cloth diapering and am planning to use BG 3.0 as the mainstay in my stash. Now that I've received a few, I can't wait for my baby to arrive! I'm also looking forward to trying the bamboo diaper, those look great!

JGRUMET said...

are snaps really available in the organic AIOs?

Amanda said...

We (DH, DD & I) love, love, LOVE Bum Genius OS 3.0 diapers! I started my stash with 18 diapers back in August. 6 Pink, 6 Yellow, 2 Blue, 2 Green & 2 white. (Why did I even get white? I never want to use them because the colors are more fun.) Orange & Lavender were 2 colors I would have loved to have as well but, they did not exist. So, imagine my excitement when I saw that they came out with the Clementine (orange) color! I just ordered 2 last week and I got them on Saturday. Yay Fluff Mail!!!! Now all they need to make is lavender and my stash will feel complete. ;)

Heidiclifton@msn.com said...

I'd love to see some products for the older child w/ bed wetting issues. I'm been spending a fortune in good overnight disposables.

Kelly Wels said...

Hi Violet Gonzalez,
When my son was 4 months he was around 16lbs and we used the middle row of snaps on the BG. For the sized aio you would want the medium. My son is now about 18lbs and 7months and the medium is just perfect. The size large would just be too big on a 16lb baby.

Matt, Sara and Kinsley :) said...

PLEASE make the One Size pocket with snaps!

Chic Mama said...

Don't ya just love BumGenius?! Even though they are one size I find them to be so trim! I can't wait to branch out with this next babe and try more of their product line!

Katrina said...

We love our BG's. My stash includes 24 and while we were on vacation at Thanksgiving and used disposables (7th Generation) even my DH made the comment that he was looking forward to getting home and getting back to cloth. I also have the sprayer, and boy it that a life saver...I hate dunking and swirling dirty diapers!
