There are only a handful of cloth diaper companies that can claim to have been around for over a decade. Bum-Ware is one of them. They have been in business since 2003. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of cloth diaper brands that have come and gone. Having the longevity to be around for over a decade says a lot about the quality of Bum-Ware cloth diapers.
I received this diaper for the purpose of review. I did not receive any other compensation. All views expressed here are my honest and true opinion.
Bum-ware cloth diapers are made in the USA by a mom that is originally from Canada but now calls Pennsylvania home. Much as I did, Izsbela says that she fell in love with cloth diapers even before her own daughter was born. She says that Bum-Ware was born of her obsession of environmentalism and her passion for entrepreneurship. Those are two things that I can also personally appreciate.
The Bum-ware Extreme All in One or BWX comes in sizes small- extra large. This is part of why it is so trim. You buy the size that fits your baby best and that cuts back on the excess fabric that can sometimes be found in one size diapers. I received a large to review on Sophia. She is now almost 2.5, 32″ and 30 pounds. I’ve had the diaper for about 6 months now and about 5 pounds ago for Sophia. It’s still a good fit for her. The diaper has also worn really well. Everything is still in great condition. The only sign of wear is a little pilling on the stay dry inside layer.
Things I really like:
The hook and loop on this is some of the strongest you will ever find on a cloth diaper. It’s up there with Ragababe and Tots Bots (my other two favorite H&L cloth diapers). It really is SUPER trim. The materials and workmanship are excellent which allows for easy washing and drying and also makes it a durable cloth diaper. Finally, I have the large which still has a good rise for Sophia. So the Xlarge is probably great if you need it for even bigger children. There aren’t all that many big size options on the market, so it’s nice to know this is available.
The Things I Wish I could change:
I found that Sophia, who is a heavy drinker…of water. Geesh you guys, what did you think I was going to say. Anyway, I found that I needed to add a doubler or insert on top of the soaker to make it absorbent enough for 2-2.5 hours of use. Nothing serious or unfixable. I just wish that maybe the attached soaker maybe was a little bigger allowing it to hold a touch more liquid.
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve ever tried Bum-ware cloth diapers. What did you think?
