This is not something I readily admit in mixed company, but in this forum I can let my cloth diaper obsession shine: the clothing I choose for my daughter is heavily influenced by her cloth diapers. I’m not talking sizing and fit, that’s just normal common sense, no I’m talking colors. Does this item match her diapers? Are there multiple diaper color options to go with this item? Will it only match the solid diapers or will it work with her patterns as well? Crazy? Maybe. Fun? Oh, yes! So you can only imagine how excited I was with this find…I have found, what I call, the Bum Genius dress!
If I didn’t know any better I would have thought this dress was designed, manufactured and sold by Bum Genius. It has stripes of four different colors: light pink, dark pink, green and orange, but they might as well be called Blossom, Zinnia, Ribbit and Clementine. The stripes are exact matches for the Bum Genius colors. I so look forward to the warmer weather when she can wear just a sundress and a diaper and this dress is exactly why. I am guaranteed throughout the day with multiple diaper changes that she is always going to match perfectly and adorably. I wonder if anyone at Bum Genius has noticed this dress and the striking color resemblance.
I know this sounds incredibly silly and ridiculous, and I admit it is, but it makes diapering fun. Before I used cloth, diapers were obviously necessary, but incredibly boring. Now I just love putting them on her and showing them off. On a more practical note, though, showing people how cute they can be is a great stepping off point for talking about cloth (something of which I never tire). I’m always so surprised at people’s preconceived, old-fashioned ideas of cloth and love dishing out the truth. Having them in plain sight shows people how user friendly, modern and adorable cloth diapers are now. And it doesn’t hurt to make a fashion statement while saving the planet one diaper at a time!
