I never imagined, when I first started thinking about using cloth diapers with Little Miss, that there would be SO MANY OPTIONS. One of the most popular diaper lines on the market is the bumGenius line. Thanks Mama carries them all and recently sent me a bumGenius 4.0 snaps in the Lovelace print (also available in hook/loop closure) for review.
Anyway, as a pocket diaper, the bumGenius 4.0 requires stuffing. It comes with a Cotton Babies one size insert and a newborn insert/doubler. The microfiber inserts are made of 3 layers of the thick microfiber terry. You can use it with or without the newborn doubler, or use the newborn insert by itself. The one size insert can be snapped down to fit smaller babies. It is designed to fit babies from 7 pounds all the way up to 35 pounds. Little Miss was born at 7lb 2 oz. Our bumGenius 4.0 didn’t fit her without gapping until after she crossed the 8lb mark. She does have a tiny hiney, though, and chunk free thighs. Now that she is over 8 pounds and filling out, the bumGenius 4.0 fits her beautifully.
So far, I have to use the newborn insert by itself, as the one size is a bit too bulky between the thighs for Little Miss. I’m sure it will be perfect once she hits the ten pound mark, though.
This diaper washes well, dries easily, and fits perfectly. Who could ask for more?
Stay tuned for my Cloth Diaper Derby where you’ll be able to win a bumGenius 4.0 diaper from Thanks Mama!!
