You Voted,

and we listened.

We have braved the world of cloth diapers.

And it is a lot less horrible that I have been told.

Gone are the days of the wet diaper pail. Gone are the days of pinning diapers together.

Say hello to BumGenius!, and yes they really are.

I thought it was a little presumptuous of the company to call themselves genius until I got my pack of diapers in the mail yesterday and tried them out today.

These bad boys are so soft I wanted to snuggle my own cheeks into them, and I am not talking about my bum.

They are expensive at $18.00 each, but before you crap YOUR pants, take these things into account.

1. These cloth diapers are adjustable. They will fit your baby from 8 to 35 pounds.

2. You only have to buy them once and they have a year warranty.

3. They are super easy to use. Just like disposables except for two extra steps. Dumping the yuck in the toilet and washing them each evening.

4. A box of 244 diapers costs $48.00 at Costco. That is $0.20 each. I buy about one box every three weeks. That costs me $832.00 a year. Wipes run me about $200.00 a year. Kids are in diapers for about 2 years.

That is $2064.00 per kid.

5. I need only 12 diapers a day.

$216.00 gets me a daily supply of cloth diapers. FOR LIFE! They may even make it on to the next kid. We will see how gross they get over time. And yes I am doing cloth wipes too.

So why pay that much money for your kid to sit in uncomfortable rash giving, chemical filled diapers. That is just nuts.

Ronan took two uninterrupted 3 hour naps today for the first time ever. Coincidence? I think not. I mean if I had been sitting on one of those hospital maxi pads 24-7 for the last 7 months my butt would not thank me. So imagine how babies feel. They wrap up just like disposables. So if you have a poopy diaper you dump the solids into the toilet, and chuck the diaper in a DRY diaper genie.No gross wet pails here. No smell either thanks to the air tight diaper genie.

At the end of the day you chuck them in the wash. I throw them in the dryer right before bed and wake up to a fresh batch the next morning.
So non-believers, give it a try. You may save yourself a bunch of cash, and your baby from a bunch of rash. You may even get some better sleep in the process like me!


  1. Great!! Now that we are finished having babies.

    You go girl. . . .

    Can't wait to see what you find with the cloth feminine hygiene products.

  2. I agree with Mom#1! Mom#2
