bumGenius Organic Cotton Cloth Diapering with Cotton Babies (Review with Giveaway, Ends 02/16/14, Contiguous US Only)

Disclosure: We received a free bumGenius cloth diaper in exchange for our honest opinion about it.




In conjunction with my second Blogiversary celebration, Cotton Babies has generously provided a bumGenius "Mirror" elemental organic cotton all in one, one size, cloth diaper (RV $24.95). 



 
 
Let me tell you about the cloth diaper that Cotton Babies sent us for this review. We received it towards the tail end of Daniella becoming potty trained. We primarily used it for overnight diapering. We never had any leaks. It fit Daniella very well.
 
 
After specifying that we preferred gender neutral diaper prints, we were excited to receive the Albert print of Cotton Babies' bumGenius Elemental One-Size Cloth Diaper. This print is adorable !
 
 
A lot of gender neutral prints that we already had are just solid colors so I was excited to have a patterned one.
 

 
 
I love that it is made of organic cotton!

 
It is very roomy. It has lots of space and is a snap closure. I love that you can add extra inserts if needed!

 
Look at how much absorbency it provides...but it isn't a super thick diaper that barely snaps closed in order to provide that much absorbency.

 
I love how all of the inserts work so well together.

 
Isn't the print really cute? Think Albert Einstein!

 
Cotton Babies even provided me with enough detergent to do the initial washing to prep the diaper!
IMPORTANT: Prewash dark color diapers six times separately before washing with other diapers.
Before First Use: Wash hot (100F/40C) 3-5 times for maximum absorbency.
Use: Do not use rash creams.
Dirty Storage: Store in dry pail/bin.
Wash: Wash darks separately. Pre-wash cold. Wash hot (140F/60C) with bumGenius detergent. Extra rinse. No laundry additives. Tumble dry - low. No fabric softeners. Use 1/4 cup or 60 mL bleach in the hot wash once per month.

 
Here's my Cotton Babies bumGenius diaper in the washer!  
 

 
The bumGenius detergent worked fantastically!

We tried many kinds of cloth diapers before Daniella was potty trained. We primarily used pockets and covers with inserts. I have to say that I really liked not having to stuff this diaper and knowing it would still be absorbent enough without being extra bulky.
