Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
One thing I found I actually really loved about trying to be crunchy, is cloth diapering. I mean cleaning wasn’t fun, but it was easy, I only had to buy them once, they seemed to leak less than disposables, and they were super cute!
Lotus Bumz was started by Lorain Danus-Herder after her son was born, and she saw the need to have affordable/high quality cloth diapers on the market. Thus Lotus Bumz was born.
Lotus Bumz cloth diapers come with a complete out layer of PUL
. There is also three rolls of snaps, so that the diaper can be used in small, medium, large.
Two rolls of snaps keep the diaper extra secure, and the waist closure snaps over lap for babies who have extra small waists.
The inside of the Lotus Bumz diapers are lined with super soft fleece, and has a wide pocket in the back that makes it easier to stuff and pull apart when washing.
Each of the Lotus Bumz diapers come with a three layer microfiber insert that is very absorbent. My only problem with the insert is that it is really really long. I think that if you were using it on a baby who may be using the small size of the diaper, it would either be really bulky or sticking out of the diaper. Please keep this in mind, and consider looking into smaller cloth diaper inserts.
PLEASE NOTE: When I test out a product such as this one, I try and push it to it’s limits. In the photo below, I am testing absorbency, so there will be water around the diaper.
Goose is no longer in diapers, so when I test cloth diapers now I pour two cups of water on the diaper and see how much it would hold. When I did this with the Lotus Bumz diapers, at one cup, the diaper would have probably still been ok with no compression leaks. At a cup and a half, the diaper was still holding the water, but if the baby would have sit on that diaper, then it probably would have leaked out the sides. By two cups of water, the diaper was over flowing, and that is the water you see on the ground above. I think only about 1/4 cup of water actually leaked out with no compression.
I have another Momma testing it out right now on a 3month old.
Over all I think that the Lotus Bumz diapers are really cute, and very well made.
Not only do Lotus Bumz make really adorable and affordable diapers, but they also make MATCHING leg warmers!
At $14.99, the leg warmers are really affordable since they will last so long.
