Meet Mary Pickersgill – the newest Genius Print from bumGenius & Flip

Just released today, bumGenius has a brand new limited edition print. The print is named after Mary Pickersgill and designed to resemble the American flag. The patriotic print is here just in time to celebrate our country’s birthday. Featuring red, white, and mirror, it’s sure to get your little one in the spirit this 4th of July. You can PREORDER this new print from Kelly’s Closet starting at 4pm ET today, June 14th. Mary Pickersgill was an American business woman and well-known seamstress who created the Great Garrison Flag that flew during the 1814 Battle of Baltimore. Her flag, which was the largest garrison flag ever flown at the time, became the inspiration behind a poem written by Francis Scott Key now known as the United States National Anthem. Today, the original 30 by 42-foot flag created by Mary resides in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. Aside from her flag making business, Mary also addressed social issues for disadvantaged women, including housing, employment and financial aid. As President of the Impartial Female Humane Society, she opened a home for elderly women that later expanded into an entire retirement community named in her honor, as was the World War II Liberty ship, the SS Mary Pickersgill.

Flips for the Win

Before I started my cloth diaper journey, I was set on pocket diapers. It’s what everyone seemed to recommend and use, so I bought a small stash and fell in love. We used prefolds and covers during the newborn stage, and I hated trying to figure out the folds. I didn’t like the two-step system and was even more convinced I was a pocket kind of person until a free diaper cover changed my thinking completely. I received a Flip cover as a free diaper cover when I made an order through Kelly’s Closet, and almost forgot about it until I found it shoved in the back of the diaper drawer. I pulled it out one day when my daughter was about four months old and researched what I could do with it. A quick search at KC showed that Flip made several different kinds of inserts, and I decided to try the stay dry inserts and organic cotton overnight inserts. They also make organic cotton day inserts that I haven’t tried, but plan to buy some when it gets closer to my daughter potty training. Disposable inserts are another option as well, and although I have wanted to try those too, haven’t really had a reason to yet. After using the covers and inserts, I was hooked. First of all, no more stuffing! I could quickly fold the inserts …

I Once Threw Out A Wet Prefold

The first time I tried cloth diapers, I used a Gerber pre-fold with a snapi under a size one Thirsties cover. It worked perfectly. There were no leaks and changing was no big deal. What I was not prepared for was the wet prefold. I know it sounds silly, but at the time I was at the changing table with a wet prefold and nowhere to put it. Like many of us, I am a “googler”. Yet for some reason I did not turn to it to answer this question. Was it baby brain? All I knew was that my mother used disposables. My mother in law used a diaper service and I remembered her stories of hauling a wet pail downstairs. I did not like the idea of having to produce a wet pail that instant. I thought: “What is a wet pail? A bucket of water and soap?” In any case, I changed my baby into a disposable diaper and I wrapped the wet prefold in a used grocery bag and threw it out. Yes, people. Guilty as charged. In my defense, I washed the Thirsties cover. Fast-forward one year and I am pregnant with baby number two. Due to many breastfeeding problems and hormonal issues, I know baby number two will be formula fed. Baby number one is a toddler under two years old and not potty …
