bumGenius 3.0 One-Size Cloth Diapers – An Important Announcement

The last couple of years has been a wild ride for Cotton Babies and the brands we created. We started out on our product venture with a tiny shipment of diapers that sold out within hours on December 21st, 2005. Since that date, the production lines haven't stopped and our most popular brand, bumGenius, has gone on to be sold all over the world, winning awards and accolades from media nearly everywhere it goes.

In keeping with our long standing tradition of excellence, we have been working on something new for quite some time. I'm not very good at keeping secrets, so news has gotten out here and there about what might be new. Speculation from you and your friends has been quite literally all over the map about what the new product might be. Up until today, we weren't 100% sure of when we could tell you, but finally, we have a date. I am excited to announce that a new bumGenius product will be born on June 29th!

We're confident that you will be just as excited about this new product as we are. So, immediately following my announcement, we will open up to preorders. We begin actually shipping orders on July 14th.

Something fun and new is coming. But that usually means that we have to say goodbye to something else. So, it is with slightly heavy hearts that we have to announce that we have discontinued our highly acclaimed
bumGenius 3.0 One-Size Cloth Diapers. If you're in the midst of building your stash, we still have a limited inventory available at the awesome Buy 5, Get 1 Free deal (while supplies & coupons last). Shop now or forever hold your peace! :)

We'll email you soon with details of when and where the new product announcement will be made.... have a great Tuesday everyone!

  1. Dont discontinue the 3.0! WE love the velcro. WE have also have the flip and we don’t like the snaps as much as the velcro. Please, Please, Please reconsider.

  2. Sabrina says:

    I am said to say goodbye to 3.0 I have 18 of them out of my 19 diapers. I would love to see prints it would be so jazzy. Now I am excited for the big news.

  3. Ashlee says:

    Oooh patterns would be lovely!

    I hate suspense! HAH!

  4. Kelli says:

    I hope they have SNAPS and PATTERNS :)

  5. Reanna says:

    What?! Right before my baby shower when I am hoping/depending on everyone buying me a BG3.0…
    Oh my god, I have to go change my registry to a different brand. That sucks so bad, I have researched so many different ones and we settled on them finally. That explains why Amazon went out of stock of two colors without explanation.

    I hope the new dipes are like 3.0, but with a longer rise and an option to get snaps! I’m a BG fan, but I had to replace the aplix with snaps because they wore out after less than a year of use, and now my 18 month old is too tall for them. If I could get snaps and a longer rise my current diaper dilemma would be solved!

    I’m excited to see the new arrivals, but really love my BG 3.0’s. They are the only cloths that we use. I have tried others & immediately stopped using them for one reason or another.
    As stated previously, I’m hoping that you keep the repair kits around for a while because I’m sure I’ll need to fix them before the next one.

  8. Anonymous says:

    I am hoping that whatever it is that is coming is a better fit for larger babies as the 3.0’s really did not fit any baby that was chunky and over about 27 pounds, but definitely not made for chunky babies over 30 pounds!!! I also hope that if they have velcro that there is a significant immprovement in this area too as the current velcro just does not hold up over time!!! Fingers crossed that these improvements will be coming!

  9. This better be good as my 3.0s are the only cloth diaper that fits my skinny baby girl!

  10. Rachelle says:

    My guess is 4.0 as they would be CRAZY to totally get rid of the BG OS. They seem to be in so many more stores than any other brands and most people LOVE them (myself included). In several babies stores around here, they are the only cloth diapers that they sell. I’m guessing (and hoping) that it will be 4.0 with different colours and maybe snap option (but grandparents and babysitters love them soooo much)

  11. IowaMama says:

    I still have and use a few of those VERY first diapers from 2005 and all versions since as well. I love CBs & BGs! Very excited for the next creation! :)

  12. BhimiBlog says:

    No wonder you’ve had this 5/1 deal going on *forever.* My guess: bg 4.0 will be snaps, with no need to stuff somehow. (Here’s hoping for some new color choices though. Hint. Hint. The pastels are SO boring.)

  13. I bought 18 bg 3.0 like 2 1/2yrs ago and besides changing them to snaps they are in brand new shape. I LOVE them and still use them today. My second child to use them is ready to potty learn so I won’t need the new version but I hope it is as great as the 3.0 for if I have anymore babies. I love the micro suede and hope they don’t change that, but I need snaps. Best diaper out there hands down!

  14. Pamela says:

    what is this going to mean about the return policy. I do love our 3.0s but we have nearly replaced both sets of diapers through the 1 year guarantee when the velcro around the front began to detach from the diaper. Will we be able to still return for replacements and just get 4.0’s as replacements? I do really like the velcro but have been slowly been adding the snapping type diapers to our selection (I am too busy to convert ours to snaps)…very interested in what in store…

  15. Stephanie says:

    For all those converting to snaps, snaps would be great, but PLEASE don’t get rid of the velcro. I HATE snap diapers of all kinds and refuse to use them. To me they’re tedious, and don’t fit as well unless you’re right on the snap setting.

  16. i’m devastated! they were my first diaper and after many brands, still one of my very favorites. devastated!

  17. Jen says:

    I too love my BG 3.0’s (converted to snaps). I am excited to see what the new product is like. Change can be hard, but it can be great as well.

    I love my 3.0’s and I just ordered some with the buy 5 get 1.
    I can’t handle the change. I’m scared. It better be a much better awesome version of the 3.0’s.

  19. Cj says:

    Can you just put my order in now?! I have seriously tried every brand out there and no matter what bumGenius will always be our family’s brand!!

  20. Heide says:

    The BG 3.0’s are our workhorse diapers, but had to convert all the velcro to snaps. Please let the next versions (4.0?) have snaps.

    Looking forward to see whats next.

  21. Alison says:

    Wow that is just insane. I love my BGs. <3

    Can’t wait to see what you are coming out with though.

    RIP BGs. RIP!

  22. EG says:

    Wow, I’m kind of shocked that the BG 3.0 is going away! The new “baby” must be good!

  23. Caroline says:

    That’s exciting!

    Like another poster said, please keep selling the bG 3.0 repair kits for a while.

    Can’t wait to hear about the new product.

  24. Oh no! I have a giveaway going for BG 3.0’s. Maybe I’ll have to trade it out for a ‘new’ product.

  25. Anna M. says:

    I’m excited about the new product, but sad to see the 3.0 go. They’ve been the backbone of our cloth diapering system from the day my son was born, and they are bar none my husband’s favorite dipes in the world. He loves them so much that he tells all his soldiers to buy them for their babies. I hope whatever replaces them will be just as good. I don’t know how it could be better.

  26. Jill says:

    Sad to see them go PLEASE keep your refresher kits around for a couple of years at LEAST! I have mostly your dipes in my stash (since I live near STL!) and we’re planning on continuing our ‘stash o’ babies’ in the near future, and the velcro might hold up through this one and maybe 6 months of the next, lol, but not past that and I want to be able to do the ‘fixin’ of it if I can!

  27. I agree with Crystal – I don’t know what to do – wait and see what the new product is or order more 3.0s while I can. Decisions, decisions!!

  28. Bambi says:

    Oh can’t wait to see the new ones. If you’re looking for BGOS check out

  29. sarah says:

    I’ll be sad too, but hope you guys are working on something with snaps-Aplix doesn’t work for us, and ALL of our BGs are snap-converted.

  30. Andrea says:

    I hope the new product is just as good as the 3.0s! That’s almost all that we use right now, and I LOVE them. I’m not sure if I would have stuck with cloth diapering if I used anything else. I’m so sad to see them go :( What will I use for our next baby?

  31. LiL Gigglez says:

    omg that is crazy and amazing. Those dipes are awesome but I can’t wait to see what you guys have in store. & Happy birthday to me on the 28th so I will be buying something on the 29th from you. lol or atleast pre-ordering. Great job everyone.

  32. Crystal says:

    So how do I know if I should order the 3.0’s I’ve been wanting or wait for the new product? I don’t want to wait to find out what the new product is only to find out that the bumgenius 3.0’s are all gone when I want to order them… What can I do? No hints at all?

  33. Oh, duh. June 29th is the day of the announcement. I was so excited I skipped right over that part :)

  34. Amanda says:

    I hope you make something larger than the 3.0’s… my baby was full unsnapped in the rise at 6 weeks! We need a big diaper for our big boy!

  35. Anonymous says:

    But the 3.0s are what got me into cloth diapering!!!! What new product can replace those?!

  36. SCMOMOF2BOYS says:

    Can’t wait to see what it will be, although I’ll be sad about loosing the 3.0!
