Review of bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper

This diaper rocks! I want more in my stash!! End of review. ūüôā

Only kidding! Sometimes that is all I need to hear about a product to try it for myself,¬†however¬†I know¬†more details are helpful…especially when¬†making important decisions such as what cloth diapers to purchase. So here’s WHY the bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper rocks:

First a quick description of the diaper. It’s a one size pocket diaper. For those of you intimately familiar with cloth diapering, you¬†can easily read and understand that sentence. However if you are newer to cloth diapering sometimes the terminology is confusing. Learning¬†a whole new vocabulary comes along with cloth diapering and I know it took me a little while to speak cloth diapering fluently. A one size diaper is a diaper that can be adjusted to grow with baby so essentially only one¬†size of diaper¬†is needed from birth through potty training. The bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper has a 3×3 snap down design that¬†adjusts the sizing to fit small, medium and large sizes. It will fit babies approximately 7lbs to 35+ pounds. Here’s a picture that shows a side by side of the diaper on the smallest and largest setting.

A pocket diaper is a diaper that has an opening in it that you stuff with an insert which creates the absorbent layers of the diaper. The bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper comes with TWO inserts. A small one to use with newborns and a large one to use with growing baby. Or you can use both inserts for an older baby who is a heavy wetter or needs extra protection at night. Currently I use the newborn insert with other diapers and the larger insert folded down with my bumGenius. Here are two pictures to show you the two different sizes of inserts that come with the bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper:

You can see that the larger insert snaps down which is a feature I love because it offers extra protection where needed depending on which way you stuff it; in the front for boys in the back for girls. The pocket opening is large enough to easily stuff the insert, however is cleverly designed to hold in moisture.

Speaking of moisture, that is one of the biggest factors in how much I like a diaper. Does it contain moisture and poop? How well does it prevent leaks and blowouts? One would assume all diapers are created equal when it comes to this feature (because¬†that basically is a cloth diaper’s #1 job; the #2 job is to look cute!) however that is not necessarily the case.¬†The effectiveness of a cloth diaper mostly depends on 1) the design of it and 2) the fit of it. BumGenius has perfected their design to the point where I cannot even think of suggestions for improvement. The 3×3 snap design, hook and loop or snap closure, and two sizes of inserts, allow you a custom fit diaper every time and at each stage of growth. I have had ZERO incidents of leaks or blowouts with my¬†bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper!

Another important feature of a diaper is how trim it fits. A bulky diaper is cumbersome on baby and to pack in a diaper bag.¬†A bulky diaper can impede baby’s movement and impact how clothing fits on a baby. A nice trim fitting diaper is definitely preferred, especially once baby is mobile. Here’s my¬†active 11 month old¬†wearing a bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper on the largest setting. You can clearly see how trim fitting is in these pictures.

The bumGenius 4.0 One Size Stay Dry Cloth Diaper is my favorite diaper for on the go because I am fully confident in it! Plus it is fast to diaper baby with and the trim design packs well. The colors and prints also deserve honorable mention because they are gorgeous. Overall I give it 5 stars!!!

    Just ordered/received one Friday night to try it out. I was looking for an overnight diaper for a heavywetter. I loved it so much the first night I had to wash it the next morning to make sure it was ready to use for the next bedtime. It is so soft and my boy stayed dry! My only concern is that my bumgenius elementals started developing holes after 9 months of use, so I am worried this one will not hold up. Not sure if I should order more…
