This giveaway was originally part of the FluffMas Giveaway Hop.
For the last month I've been trying out a new cloth diaper that I've heard about for a few years but haven't gotten a chance to try in person. What's the brand? Lotus Bumz!
Lotus Bumz is family owned by Lorain and the diapers are ethically made in China. The diapers that I got to review are a one-size pocket diaper. If you are new to the cloth diaper lingo game, "one size" means that the diaper is made to fit most babies from usually 8 - 35 lbs, and "pocket diapers" means you stuff an insert inside the cover.
it's very very handy to be able to use the same diapers between the two girls. All I have to do is adjust the rise. I love pocket diapers because the insert always stays in place and they are the easiest to get non-primary caregivers on board with. From the changing diaper standpoint, they go on just like a disposable (with the exception of snaps versus velcro). I just prep them in one big load after I'm done with my wash and they wait patiently in a basket until it's time for a change. Grandparents, aunties and uncles don't have a problem changing them because there's nothing to it.
Besides the cute prints that you can only find on Lotus Bumz diapers, I really like the quality of the PUL material. The PUL (polyurethane laminate) is the exterior part of the diaper and is the printed fabric. It's the waterproof layer. If you have gotten to feel different brands of diapers, you might notice that some PUL fabrics are slick versus kind of "sticky" on the inside. I don't think there is a benefit either way, in my experience one is not more waterproof than the other. But what I have found with a "stickier" fabric is that it's a little harder to stuff them because your skin gets caught on the sticky PUL or the insert does. Lotus Bumz have a slick PUL interior, which makes it easier and quicker to stuff. It's all personal preference, but when you've got a TON of diapers to stuff and two girls begging for you to play...well, let's just say that I take whatever shortcuts are given to me and I appreciate a quick stuffing diaper! The material the touches the baby is fleece, which is soft and hasn't caused any irritation on either of my girls. The diapers come with a standard microfiber insert.
In trying these out on both of my girls (Penny is 32 months and Ruby is 8 months) I've had no problem with fit or leaking, which is what everyone wants to know when buying a cloth diaper!
