    I blogged about my BumGenius Freetimes a few months ago with the birth of my baby girl!

    Hi! My great-aunt has been suffering from not being able to control her bladder for many years. Actually, this problem runs on my dad’s side of the family for the older generation. So I found the best Incontinence Products online with good quality at eversures Incontinence Products

  3. Tiffany says:

    I linked to you on Facebook. I love my Bumgenius 3.0 and would love to try the 4.0s!

    I always share info about my BG’s! Here’s the most recent:!/profile.php?id=1411771633

  5. I show off my son in nothing but his BG elementals or flips with matching babylegs Henry or William. For me it is a lifestyle as well as fashion statement. Just yesterday at the mall and today at church I got lots of comments/questions. Here a pic of MY cottonbaby:

    So, I have a question. My comment/story posted on here after your deadline, but I am in Oregon and it is only like 10:30. I am praying that it still counts. Its not past the deadline where I am. Please! It was the only time I could get on here. Thanks.

    I will tell you, I am from Portland, Oregon. I am somewhat of a hippie and believe in supporting local businesses, but when I was introduced to, things changed. You guys are great! I didn’t believe in cloth diapering until I did it. One of my friends just had a baby and she didn’t even know that we used cloth diapers. I had to let her in on the whole thing and it felt so good. She couldn’t believe how easy it all was. She has now told everyone she knows and gives them my number and I tell them all about it and direct them to your site. Nothing could be greater than being able to share something so wonderful with others that will help them and their babies. We have used like every different kind of cloth diaper, but love Bumgenius the best. Thank you Cottonbabies!

  11. I hope I’m not too late! I’m an expecting mom (due date is in 5 weeks!) and very enthused about using cloth diapers for the first time!

    Here’s my blog post about my experiences preparing for baby:

    I tweeted about your giveaway ttp://

  13. MightyMighty says:

    I always have tons of people ask me about cloth diapering, so I have a cut and paste email that I use. This link is to the text that I’ve sent to lots of people:

  14. Trish Jenkins says:

    A couple months back my family (including my one year-old) went shopping for a new recliner. The salesman, upon seeing my son, mentioned that he had a baby due in just a couple weeks. He also mentioned that his wife was hassling him with decisions such as what diapers (disposable) to use. He said he didn’t know anything about it and didn’t know what to tell her. “Well, I know what you should do!” We spent at least 10 minutes telling him all about Bum Genius diapers and how much we’ve enjoyed using them. We are full of praise for them based on our personal experience, so it’s easy for us to go on and on and on about it! He asked for more details and we gave him Cotton Babies’ website and he was so excited! We didn’t end up getting a recliner that day because we spent our time being the salespeople for bum genius! :)

  15. Mariannita says:

    Our four month old Mariannita loves her Bum Genius and Flips so much that we had to stock up on these before venturing south of the border. Here are a few shots of the road trip to Southern Mexico. Oh yeah, everywhere we go folks are all about asking bout these fine pañales/diapers and we tell them that we are flipando para nuestros Cotton Babies, we`re flipping for our Cotton Babies. So we`ve put some shots on PicasaWeb to get friends and family jazzed about Coton Babies too…!!!

  16. Katrin says:

    So excited about the econobums! I’ve been tracking my first order daily…should be here Thursday. Already told 2 friends about them and I haven’t even used them! Also posted my excitement on facebook:!/profile.php?id=10006866

    my idea for a bumper sticker :) we influence everyone we come in contact with. and we come in contact with a countless number of people while on the road.!/profile.php?id=839090432

  18. Trish Jenkins says:

    I was keeping up a blog on my son when we lived in St Thomas as many of our family and friends were still on the mainland. In one of my entries (link below) I bragged about my preemie son finally being big enough to wear his bum genius diapers that we were so anxious to try out. Using the bum genius diapers has definitely been one of our favorite choices in products for our son!
    -Trish Jenkins

  19. Barbie says:

    link to a post about bumgenius back in June 2010

    Aside from that I have convinced my sister to cloth diaper!! She was really worried about the poop aspect , but in comes the Bumgenius diaper sprayer and she is on the wagon!!

  20. Jolynn says:

    Posted on my blog:

    Thank you to Cotton Babies for this week and the giveaways. It’s been fun!

  21. Sarah N says:

    In honor of Free Cloth Diaper Week, I did a really fun amateur photoshoot with my baby boy Rhys (pr. “reese”), and a few kiddos & mommies from my neighborhood this weekend! Got lots of shots of different babies all wearing CottonBabies diapers. Here are the few that I’ve edited so far. There are a lot more that i’ll be posting throughout the week, so keep checking back!

  22. Tammy says:

    Here’s another one, we had a great time! My son says he wants to do this every Sunday night!

  23. Tweet about why to cloth diaper & that Bum Genius is the best:

  24. I just mentioned how cloth diapering is going on my blog in my baby’s 4 month update.

  25. Acerbica says:

    I wrote a quick post naming the women I’ve helped to convert to cloth diapering, and tagged them, and Cotton Babies in it.

    I would love to win this for my daughter!



    My husband and I welcomed Madeline Sabine into this world 3weeks ago today. She has been such a blessing to our family. We want Only the best for her, so we choose, natural child birth, breastfeeding AND cloth diapers.

    We couldn’t be happier with the performance of our small stash of CD. Thanks Cotton babies for the GREAT website! Very insiteful for new families like ours, learning the in’s and out’s of CD.

    Thanks again for the opportunity to win great prizes! Much baby love.

  33. Ginger C says:

    I posted a note on my facebook page about a couples baby shower relay race game that featured bumgenius diapers. And highlighted it in my status.

  34. Mama Carvell says:

    I think people are probably getting a little tired of me talking about CDs :-) It is one of my favorite subjects and I like informing people of all of the benefits. I recently borrowed 8 of my different dipes to my neighbor so she could try cloth and she loved it. Her favs by far are the BGs!

  35. I posted my resolution to use only cloth diapers now that we have 2 little ones in diapers on facebook. Hope this works.


  36. Courtney says:

    I blogged about our switch to cloth diapering on my blog here:

    I tweeted about cloth diapers @cottonbabies. Whoo-hoo! I love Bum Genius cloth diapers by Cottonbabies!

  40. Eleise F. says:

    I have influenced several of my friends to start using CDs, specifically BG 4.0s. We are all in love! I also tweeted about my love of CD!

  41. raesalley says:

    I reviewed the BG’s and my love for them here:
    Pt 1:
    Pt 2:

    I wrote these because my cousin was curious about what to put on her daughter who’s three months younger than mine. The cloth, and their ease of use and how adorable she looks have gotten us many compliments. My friends who are thinking of having kids in the not-to-distant future were saying “no wai!” until they saw the little amount of effort required. They’re even jealous of our changing station made out of a wine box we keep in our living room.

    Another fun moment was the “diaper snob” conversation I had with my online girlfriends – three of us independently with children less than 6 months apart all are BG gals.

    My cousin, btw, has already put them on her registry and is in love with the small starter set I sent her!

  42. Vanessa says:

    I’m not sure you will be able to see this or not since my fb page is private, but here is a picture I posted of our youngest in an XS BG Diaper. If I would win-I can let you in to my page on fb so you can verify:!/photo.php?pid=7140061&id=735547418&ref=fbx_album

  44. I also posted on my FB since I have a different group of followers there. If I win, let me know and I will add you so you can see the post. I have everything friend locked. :)!/rblomer

  45. Sara says:

    I belong to a local Mom’s forum called “Anti Drama Mamas” and while I don’t think you can access the threads without being a member, I’ve been helping some of the newer moms (including my BFF) convert to cloth, specifically BGs. When I joined the forum before my first son was born, 2 years ago, there were 2 girls using cloth. Now there’s at least 10 of us and we all help each other out with troubleshooting and various cloth diapering support. I link to cotton babies all the time to help the other moms out!

  46. I am new to clothdiapering. I tried BG XS & BG 3.0s first and loved the fit of XS so much I expanded to get BG 4.0s and Organics/Elementals.

  47. Patsy Fincher says:

    My professor in school today posted that she and her husband are going through an adoption process to adopt a little girl that will be born in October. I wrote her an email about cloth diapering and gave her the link to your website, I hope she doesn’t mind :) I’m not sure if this counts as an entry but I would have emailed her about it either way. I am a cottonbabies advocate all the way!

  48. Hope Patterson says:

    I posted a picture of my son wearing his BumGenius and wrote a short poem that I posted on my newly created blog site. I’m not very technically advanced so hopefully I’m doing all this correctly. My site is I love your company! Thanks for all you do.

  49. Here is my blog about why cloth Diapers are better and how we LOVE Bum Genius more than other cloth diapers:

  52. Courtney says:

    I was trying to sell some used diapers on craigslist, and someone contacted me about cloth diapering. She had a ton of questions and was considering cloth, so she and I emailed back and forth several times and I was able to tell her about my favorite diapers, the Bum Genius Organic All-In-Ones made by Cottonbabies. They are not only super absorbent, and super trim, but super cute=the perfect cloth diaper! And. . . . they fit my 20 month old as well as my 2 month old! Amazing!!!

  53. Mama Carvell says:

    I tweeted about it though I’m not the best at twitter yet and don’t know how to post my link. :-)

  54. ShortyRobs says:


    with an awesome pic :)

    Have u joined the revolution from @cottonbabies? MUCH hotter than the Garbage Bag Dress if ur watching #VMAS

    I just commented on another post, I hope that works! I love Cotton Babies and really want to try the 4.0!

  58. Robertsons says:

    Because my personal FB profile is private, it’s hard to share stuff there. Also, my blog is private, so that won’t work either.

    But my start-up business could use all the “Likes” I can get. Nursing Covers, Wet Bags, Carrying Slings, Blankets, and even Curtains!!

    I did post on my personal FB page, but I really don’t know how to share it here.

  69. Christine says:

    I am a mother-to-be, due in late October. I have been researching cloth diapers for the past month or so and have enjoyed the information I found on Cotton Babies. While I am not interested in traditional cloths like my parents used on my brother and I, I am very interested in using hybrid cloth diapers. The Bum Genius is one of the brands which I am interested in trying. I posted a comment on my Facebook profile.!/profile.php?id=1148487335

    I do not have a blog or truly interactive website. My husband and I are missionaries in the Argentine Patagonia.

  70. Kelsey Wall says:

    i honestly can’t say that i have influenced anyone into cloth seeing as i am waiting on my first order to arrive so that i can use them for the first time but i was turned on to them By my friend Victoria! she and i are both die hards when it comes to the best for our babies anything from carseats to feeding and now diapers! i think its very helpful to have sites like yours so mom’s can get the information and not feel so alone when disposable diapers fail them as they have my friend and i and i just wanted to say THANKYOU!

  71. I posted this on facebook :!/profile.php?id=1216165951

    In May we took professional pictures of our daughter Mira. Some of which in her flip diaper. I posted them online on facebook to tell my friends about them. Even if I should not win, the pictures are cool. :)

    That’s the way aha aha I like it aha aha, that’s what aha aha you should wear aha aha! :)
    Cotton Babies is having a contest. They carry great products and as you can see Mira REALLY LOVES them!

  72. I wrote a poem specifically for this contest. I posted it on my blog. I hope you will read it, regardless if I win, because I think it’s pretty cute! Thanks.

  73. Amy Walker says:

    The thing I like best about Cotton Babies, even more than the bumGenius which is so far my most trusted pocket diaper, is the Missionary Grant Program. I think it’s the coolest thing ever!
    Tweeted about it here!

  74. Angie says:

    I’ve talked to many people about how great cloth diapering since we started with it a few months back. But to have some “proof” :) I also posted a picture of my fluffy butt baby and referenced Cotton Babies on my Facebook wall …

    “Our cloth-diapered Kendall! For all you mommies & and mommies-to-be, check out and see how EASY and CUTE cloth diapering can be. There are so many options now — no more diaper pins & plastic pants! Cheaper in the long run and better for the environment … and it’s not as gross as you might think :)”!/photo.php?pid=5455413&fbid=423038416145&id=508026145

    Also posted a pic of my daughter in a bumgenius on facebook with an announcement for this contest! :)

  77. FordeFam says:

    Just blogged about the contest and cotton babies! :)

  78. Melanie Egge says:

    I replied to a blog posting about cloth diapering at daycare. I just started cloth diapering and my BG elemental diapers are just as easy as disposable diapers and work great. I couldn’t be happier with my diaper purchases from cotton babies.

  79. Amy Walker says:

    A few weeks ago, I found that the BG makes an awesome swim diaper and posted about it for Wordless Wednesday with an adorable pic of my daughter in it (under her bathing suit) on her first trip to the beach! :)

  84. Heather says:

    Hi! I just posted the link to your blog and about the final hours of the contest in my status update on Facebook.
    Here’s the link:

  85. carlee.henry says:

    The above is a link to the Facebook profile of a pregnant friend of mine! On 9/1/10 she posted about having seen an actual cloth diaper and I chimed right in about how we’ve just finished converting our daughter to cloth! If you scroll to the final comment on that status, you will see where I recommended as a great place to buy diapers and supplies. :)

  86. Bruny Dubon says:

    Im not a blogger but recently met with the Lactation Consultant at the hospital I work and she was interested in CD. I explained how easy/convinient it is. I directed her to the cotton babies website for more information. She called me the next day that she was interested in adding it to her birthing class. I offered to borrow her some of my diapers while she purchased some for demonstration. It would be awsome to win some and donate for her birthing class and hopefully get more mommas out there CD.

  87. carlee.henry says:

    I shared on my Facebook profile about Cloth diapering week!

  88. we were just at a preschool bday party today, and one of the moms commented on my baby’s cute bloomers under her dress… well it was a cloth diaper, so of course i had to give a whole “diaper demonstration”… a few moms with really little ones wrote down diaper names, websites & seemed pretty excited about entering this giveaway! :)

  89. Heather says:

    I think this week/contest is amazing. I’m originally from south of New Orleans and cloth diapering there is almost non existent. I now live in Portland,OR and am raising our first child. I am so thrilled that we use cloth diaper. My husband was rather resistant in the beginning, but the BumGenius Elementals changed him for the better. Now we are both HUGE advocates for using cloth. We always recommend the BGs to people who think that it’s a pain. We decided to make a little movie for our entry.

    Regardless of the outcome of this whole contest, I’m just glad that you’re here to be a source for our diapers!

    Heather and Paul Dalton

  90. I don’t know if this will count as an entry or not, but I am going to share anyway. :o)

    I have now been cloth diapering our son for over a year now, and it has been a wonderful adventure! It brings me such joy knowing that I am putting something so soft and comfortable on my little one’s tush, helping our planet, and lowering our expenses all at once. I have enjoyed our “fluffy world” so much, that I am now in the process of opening up my own little online cloth boutique, and I am SO EXCITED! I have been sharing my love of fluff with all of my friends and those that happen to see me out with my son in his adorable fluff! It has been a joyous adventure! :o)

    I also have this posted on my blog @

  91. Bethany says:

    Last, my cousin is green/crunchy, but afraid of cloth. After she watched me use cloth for more than a year, she is going to at least try cloth diapers for her next baby!

  92. Bethany says:

    I also talked to a lady at the gym, and about got her convinced to use cloth!

  95. Heather says:

    Okay, I just tried to post and can’t find it, so if this turns into a duplicate entry, please, please disregard.

    I have just posted a new Facebook profile picture (that is a duplicate of one in a photo album that I limit to my friends/family list). My little daughter is sitting on the sofa surrounded by books and some of her cloth diapers. My little sister commented on the photo asking if my daughter was wearing leg warmers… and she is! She’s wearing her Baby Legs! Originally I didn’t think that the photo was that creative, but another friend commented on it saying that my daughter was doing yoga. Yoga and reading at 8 months! Wow, that is creative on second thought. I tried to tag Cotton Babies in the photo and caption, but it didn’t work. Here is the link to my profile (is limited to only my friend’s list).

    Also, I have another friend who is due with her first in November. She knows we CD and is wanting to try as well. I gave her a mini-workshop on CD’ing at my dining room table one day when she was over for tea. She asked me which ones were our favourite and I HAD to say BG! We love our pocket 3.0’s! It feels great to share the knowledge with friends that I have gained by just trying things out. My friend is thinking of asking her family to get her some BG4.0’s as shower gifts!

  96. mrsdanigirl8 says:

    I’ve also blogged about cloth diapers in general here ( and specifically about your awesome seconds sale here (

    I am constantly trying to spread the word about cloth diapers to friends and family and have successfully helped at least one mama see the light and start cloth diapering when she welcomed her little one into the world. I’ve even asked a local shop who carries BGs (Agana Baby in San Diego) if they’d carry MORE so more CD mommas could buy locally :)

I love to craft, sew, and research the best for my little boy. I would be so thrilled about winning. I am posting/ following your blog as of now!

  103. Heather Dempsey says:

    I posted on my wall about the contest…

    mostly we just share with our kids though, or when someone gets prego =) when I sister got prego with my nephew I told her she needed to CD, he’s almost a year old now, and in cloth diapers, I have a friend who is prego with #3 that’s going to cd for the first time also, after seeing my youngest in cloth

    I think the easiest way to share is by example, I’ll be cloth diapering my #3 when he/she is born (in April)

  104. CFG says:

    I wrote a bunch of posts about cloth diapering, the system we use, and the accessories we have. Cotton Babies and BumGenius are prominently featured – actually, I mentioned that my ideal diaper would be a BumGenius AIO with snaps!

    Here they are:

    Posted on my facebook letting people know about this contest!!! :) also posted a pic of my daughter in a bumgenius! :) My profile is private, but we “like” you, so…

  106. I did a demonstration at our local pizza parlor when our family went out for dinner with my extra bumGenius. My husband even got involved and talked about how great they are. It wasn’t even planned, someone just asked us about them!

  107. Kevin says:

    I was very against cloth to start with, and now I am a fan. My wife would be so excited if I won these for our daughter~

    Thanks for being great Cotton babies!

  111. Ivy Freimuth says:

    I sent out multiple tweete

  115. Honey says:

    When I first decided to go with cloth, I was so excited I started a family blog to share with all of our family and friends.

  116. Lindsayp22 says:

    I “Liked” you on facebook !

  117. K. says:

    I tweeted about cottonbabies and bumgenius a few days ago. Not the first time and won’t be the last! I also regularly mention cottonbabies and bumgenius on facebook as well as shown my 3.0s to people at the pediatricians office and in restrooms during diaper changes. People are always so amazed at how *simple* they are to use. I’ve mentioned cloth diapring to anyone who will listen, I can’t imagine ever going back to disposables! THANK YOU cottonbabies for making cloth diapering so easy for every parent!

  118. Miranda says:

    Blogged about it…

    My old blog posts include write ups on my fav. diapers (BGOS of course!) but I guess that’s duplicate so I just entered this one.

  119. Kate says:

    In addition to cloth diapering as much as possible, I love to make quilts for new babies. Here are links to two examples.

  120. LuvsDevil884 says:

    I’ve posted on a parenting forum known as Baby Gaga. I wanted to help others inform themselves with simpler terms and explanations about cloth diapering and how exciting it can be. I referenced Cotton Babies as a great site to inform themselves on more and to start their diaper stash and added the link!

  121. Mamahen says:

    I give cloth and accessories as baby shower gifts

  122. Super excited. I spoke with a woman today at a farmers market and she decided to buy 2 diapers from me that I was going to list on diaper swappers. She is new to cding but saw my son and thought how cute he looked. It was something she wanted to try but she was not sure how. So I had 2 rainforest babies that were too small for Seamus and she took them. I also told her about all the different styles of diapers, showed her some of mine and the websites to check out. She is not on FB, but is thinking about joining so she can learn more. Anyway. I showed her what my wash cycle was, what I used, how I changed Seamus. The works. Her name is Jen. She was already making her own wipes! I am so excited!! My first real convert!

  123. Three weeks after my son was born (July 4th) I posted on Facebook how much I loved my cloth diapers. Quite a few friends commented and hundreds of friends saw the post. I even mentioned the Cotton Babies website!

    I’ve got my profile locked down so you can see the post my checking out the following image I captured and uploaded to my web server.

  124. keea says:

    Here is my tweet by Designbykeea: Are you following @cottonbabies yet? You should be! Cloth diaper is never easier or economical than with BumGenius!

    The pic should be in a public album on my FB until Tues.!/photo.php?pid=34354484&id=51906048&ref=fbx_album

    This was a fun post. Congrats on so many supporters and buzz for Cotton Babies! :)

    Hello, I am currently pregnant with my first baby. I am very interested in using cloth diapers and will probably start out with some of the new BumGenius 4.0’s. I have posted about this contest on my FaceBook page and have let all my friends know how much I love Cotton Babies!

    One more entry-here’s my post from my own blog, with my poem about Cotton Babies and our CD experience!

  129. plainjaymes says:

    I also uploaded an album of a few favorite shots of our bumGenius 3.0 diapers to Shutterfly and shared on a blog. Thanks,!

  130. plainjaymes says:

    Here’s a little poem I wrote about our CDing experience with bumGenius 3.0s! :)

    “I’m going to use cloth!”
    I announced at my baby shower.
    And the looks that soon followed
    Nearly sent me to the corner to cower.

    “Are you crazy?” “Don’t you realize?”
    Many of my guests said, mouths gaping.
    “You’ll be up to your elbows in stinky diaper water!
    “You’ve most certainly gone crazy!”

    But despite general shock
    Over our diapering decision,
    When baby Meredith was born,
    We set out on our cloth mission.

    After starting with prefolds,
    Complete with diaper pins,
    I started thinking maybe we WERE nuts
    And almost threw the towel in.

    But alas! After some research,
    And a visit to Cotton Babies,
    bumGenius pocket diapers
    Were exactly what saved me.

    With Daddy-friendly velcro
    And cleanup that was a breeze,
    Our new 3.0 diapers
    Meant we were soon cloth diapering with ease.

    Now, two years later,
    Those same diapers we bought
    Will be used on our new baby
    What a wonderful thought!

    So thanks, Cotton Babies,
    For proving this new mom’s not nuts
    To try diapering a bit “old school”
    We really love your products lots!

    Love the BG 4.0s! Here is my post on FB:

    and this is what I said:
    Cloth diapering is much easier than you’d think. If you haven’t considered cloth diapering because you think of folding fabric and using pins, think again. :) I use bumGeniusfrom Cotton Babies and love them! Super easy and much cheaper than disposables. Yes, you still have to wash them, but changing them is just like changing a disposable.

    btw, I am using my husband’s google account to post. :)

  132. David says:

    My entry… I have my daughter’s pic posted as my profile pic wearing a bumGenius. In the album & my status update, I reference Cotton Babies as well as provide a link to the contest. Here’s a link to my profile page…

    I posted a review a while back for a retailer —

    jenn0350 (Friday, 06 August 2010)
    These are my favorite, so far!! I’m new to cloth and have tried only a few! But I have the most of these by far! They fit my little (well my 16 pound
    2 month old) man very well! With lots of room to grow with him! Highly recommend this CD! Only complaint…they need prints!! :

    I added what I thought about Cotton Babies to this Momma’s site, she is trying to help people who are just starting to cloth diaper and newbies!

    Way to go Momma!

  136. I’m so glad a friend told me about cloth, and that I made the switch! BG’s and Flips diapers are my very favorites :)

  137. Patty says:

    Just today I had a friend over for lunch and she is interested in natural parenting when she has children of her own. I shared with her our love of BumGenius Diapers and gave her a little tutorial about how they work! She is super interested and hopefully will do it one day!

    “Cotton Babies has been the most helpful to me in my search for cloth diapering success. Advice, reviews, great products, free shipping, and wonderful customer service are combined together on one great website. Basically a one-stop shop for everything I need for cloth diapering and more. They are fantastic! Cotton Babies has contributed greatly to my cloth diapering success for our first child, and I look forward to doing business with them as my family continues to grow.”

  142. MissTeddi says:

    I had a whole conversation with a couple of moms in the bathroom at Downtown Disney yesterday!! They saw me changing my son’s BG AIO organics and asked about it :) I told them about my 3.0s and how much I love them all! They were so impressed and said they were going to look into them!

  153. I took a picture of our son in his cloth diaper and mentioned cotton babies in the caption.

  154. zoliepup says:

    We blog and post pictures on our blog of our Bum Genius! My husband is the real Bum Genius evangalist. Every time he changes a diaper when we’re out, he’s got to preach it to someone.

    Here’s one of the pictures he’s blogged!

  156. Here’s our real life influence: My husband volunteers for a local disabilities organization. The organization has caregivers that go into the homes of disabled children/youth to provide care for them and training for their parents. Many of these families are extremely poor and disposable diapers cost them a huge chunk of their monthly income. Often times they want to conserve diapers so they leave their children in dirty/wet diapers for an extended period of time. My husband (a physical therapist) gives weekly seminars/trainings to the caregivers. He recently took a BumGenius 3.0 into a seminar he was giving to the caregivers and gave a demonstration on how they work, how they need to be washed, etc. We are now putting together some preliminary information and a survey for the families of the disabled children as we’d like to see if they would use cloth diapers if they were provided for them(the survey is to see if they have washing machines, electricity, etc.). We hope to provide them (through donations) with cloth diapers and wipes. We are not only educating the caregivers and families of the disabled about cloth diapers, but will also educate others about cloth diapers by asking them to donate to the cause.

  157. Britney says:

    I posted a review on Bum Genius 4.0s on store!

  158. Britney says:

    We live on a corner and I have a makeshift laundry line in the back yard. Every other day I have my diapers out there and many of my neighbors and friends have asked about them as they have seen them drying. I have been able to tell many people about bum genius diapers this way!

    Not sure how to document it, but I wrote a letter to my senator a while back suggesting government subsidizing for cloth diapers! It makes sense to keep all those yucky disposables out of the landfills!

  163. says:

    I have converted not one, but two cousins to cloth. Here are some conversations I have had with one of them on my facebook wall.

    As you can see, I am a real advocate of the BG’s. I LOVE the 4.0’s and with a second baby on the way, a refresher stash would be amazing.

  164. Carla says:

    I was introduced to old-school cloth diapers by my mother when she had my younger brother, I was reintroduced to them by my sister when I was pregnant with my daughter. I love my BumGenius 3.0 One Size Diapers!

    I intentionally put pics up of my clothes dipes on fb to get people to ask about them . When they ask i tell them all the websites that are great for purchasing from and cotton babies is always at the top of my list! I provide them with info why they are so much better for nenviroment, the baby, and so much fun!

    I allowed Jennifer from one of your retailers to use my son’s picture in his Bumgenius 4.0 for her Photo Gallery for mom’s and dad’s looking to see how a diaper fits. He’s 16 pounds @ 2 1/2 months and we are on the medium setting, which gives a good idea as to how long these last!

    I also recommended a friend to her site, and she purchased 8 BumGenius 4.0s for her son! ‘

  186. I influence my family. I tell they need to use my cloth diapers because I’m not supplying anything else! lol


  187. Becky says:

    I am currently signed up to take an early childhood class at the school my mom works at. When I told her about cloth diapers, she told me that I could make a poster to hang up about the reasons to switch to cloth. So, hopefully I can reach out the other moms in this class and recommend they buy some diapers from Cotton Babies! I LOVE your diapers!

  188. Becky says:

    I reviewed Ecocobums on to convince people that cloth diapering is affordable! I also recommended looking at for more info :)

    I posted on my blog about what a great experience I had with Cotton Babies customer service this week!

  194. Tara says:

    I just bought my first cloth diapers from Cotton Babies, for a baby that isn’t even born yet. I am 33 weeks pregnant with my second baby, and have been on bedrest for 13 weeks, with 6.5 of them being in the hospital. My first son was born at 30 weeks, so I am excited to have gotten farther with this one. I cannot wait to use my new cloth diapers with this little guy! As the mother of a preemie and now another almost preemie, I try very hard to make myself aware of the potential health hazards that many parents never think about!
    I am a Physician Assistant, and was astounded when a friend first spoke to me about the chemicals used in regular diapers! I have quite an influence as a medical provider and am now trying to help other mothers understand why cloth diapering isn’t just important on an environmental level, but also for the health of our children!

  195. I posted to my Facebook page how we’re loving Flips on our son and recommended that my friends give them a try!

  196. Toni says:

    A high school friend remembered my long-ago mention on Facebook that I am cloth diapering my daughter and wrote to me because she is interested in doing so for her second child. I replied with a lengthy message describing how we use and care for our bumGeniuses (sizing, spraying, laundering, etc.). Shortly after, a new acquaintance also asked about our cloth diapering experience, and I sent her the same message. I’m very happy to share our positive experience with bumGenius diapers and encourage parents to try cloth diapering with their children.

    (As my friends and I keep our Facebook accounts private, I am unable to meet your requirement that entries include proof via a link. I would be happy to share the message I composed in an email to you folks at Cotton Babies.)

  197. Jessica says:

    I sent an email to a bunch of my friends telling them about the contest. I then screen shotted the sent email and put it up on photobucket. So a double! If they look at my photobucket which is public or the email! :)

  198. Becky says:

    Can’t find my comment, so I’ll try posting it again. I made a new facebook photo album of my boys wearing BumGenius diapers- I even have one of my son wearing them in the Sahara desert!

  199. Renee says:

    I created a link on my facebook page along with tagging and bumgenius. Not only did I mention how much I like bumgenius diapers, I also said that I’m excited about them and I wanted everyone else to learn about the more modern day diapers that involve no pinning! Besides posting this on my facebook page, I often tell everyone I can about bumgenius diapers because I’m so passionate about them! Here is the link to my facebook page with my post:

    I like to put our diapers out to dry on the clothes line. We live in on campus housing so anyone who drives by can see our cute diapers. It also is a good conversation started for when people see me hanging my diapers up. A picture of our diapers on the clothesline is on our blog.

    I gave a cloth diapering talk this last weekend to a few of my friends considering cloth diapering. I brought my BumGenius 4.0 as the Pocket diaper example so they could examine them.

I love your site and I love my BG 4.0, if I hadn’t lost my job while pregnant and leaving my husband and I bank account pretty small I would use only BG diapers, but ended up having to barrow and use prefolds too which are also great I just like my BUMGENius diapers here are a few of the links to conversations I had on the website. I am Sarah133 I have also verbally told people about your website and tell everyone how great I find cloth diapering to be even though most of my family thinks I am crazy.

    Thank goodnes for cloth diapers. I used them over 38 years ago on my baby. I knew they went out of style for along time …I’m glad they are back!!! A much better than what I had! Keep up the good work on improving a great product!!!

  222. My blog post all about my son turning 1, our trip to the zoo and OF COURSE, our scheduled stop in to cotton babies!

    I took a cute picture of my 15 month old son, Nico, in his BumGenius and posted it on my fb page. I caught ALOT of flack when I decided to cloth diaper and most thought I wouldn’t last. 10 months later we are still going strong. I even convinced my daycare provider to cloth diaper him during the day!

  225. I have posted a plea for moms to research and try cloth diapering on Our365’s community blog post titled “Remember the Pampers Dry Max Scare?” This blog was about the chemicals in Pampers possibly causing diaper rash in many infants. Chemicals – next to my babies skin??? No way!! I asked moms to check out for more information. You can read the blog and my comment here:

    I helped convince our local La Leche League chapter to host a “breastfeeding happy hour” on cloth diapering. Next week we will all be bringing examples of the cloth diapers we use to share with others and introduce new mamas/soon-to-be mamas to cloth diapering. I already have a stack of Cotton Babies products to show off: BG 3.0 and 4.0, and Flips with stay-dry, organic, and disposable inserts! Can’t wait!

  227. LKF says:

    I always forward the emails announcing your Seconds sale to soon-to-be mamas I know who may be open to the idea of cloth diapering! I tell them that BG are absolutely the easiest way to go and make cloth diapering a breeze – for moms, dads, grandparents, and babysitters!

    Here’s a copy of the latest email I sent to a bunch of pregnant friends:

    Hi soon-to-be cloth diapering mamas :)

    Cotton Babies (manufacturers of BumGenius and Flip) are having a huge sale and I thought I’d pass this along in case any of you are planning to use either kind of diaper. $12 for BumGenius is a fantastic deal (I couldn’t resist buying two even though we really don’t need anymore!). You have to act fast – probably today – to get these prices; people snatch them up. But I’ve bought “seconds” before and you can’t even tell what the minor flaws may be that prevent them from being sold full-price.

    Have fun – thinking of all of you as you wait!

  228. I took some pictures of my diaper covers, did a little editing to really showcase them, and posted them to my blog. I also wrote about my reasons for cloth diapering and why I feel it is the best choice for me!

    I liked Cotton Babies facebook page

  230. Tutsy A. says:

    I have partnered up with the local hospital to come in to the month childbirth preparedness classes to teach about cloth diapers and I bring a BG AIO, a BG 4.0 pocket, and an elemental to show new parents how cloth diapers are so modern and easy! I don’t know how to link pictures to posts, but I take pictures of the new parents holding the diapers.

  231. Tutsy A. says:

    I have a made a few youtube videos to teach people about cloth diapers, and I teach and recommend BumGenius in my videos.

    I am very active on the cloth diaper board at and I frequently recommend BumGenius to moms that are new to cd’ing.

    I posted on my blog about the bumgenius diapers I bought before my son was born!

  236. Jill says:

    I recently did a post on cloth diapering awareness on my blog and got a response from a new reader–who thought I was putting fancy bloomers over ‘sposies on my kid. She couldn’t believe I was sticking my kid with pins! I won’t copy the whole email–but here’s a snippet: “You’re yanking my chain, right? Have you even looked at the pictures of my kid on the blog? Does it look like I’m using safety pins? Hell no. Today’s dipes are fastened with velcro and snaps. A lot of them are just as easy to use as disposables… My favorite brand is bum genius. I have links to their store and several other stores on my blog. I can even tell you how to get free shipping, and a lot of times there are certain places that do coupons. Not sure if you have a retail store in your area, but it’s easy to figure out. You could also check and see if there is a diaper service in your area…you could use it to try cloth and see how you like it, and they do the washing..” etc

    I’ve done this many times over, through facebook and my blog. Several people have switched and are so happy!

  237. Jill says:

    I posted a notice on the cloth diapering bloggers ning group that announces giveaways- I’m surprised no one else had yet!

    I linked the giveaway on facebook. “Perhaps my favorite dipe is bumGenius and their crew is doing a massive giveaway of a 6 pack of their new ones-to 15 people! You can get in on it, too, just click the link. Great diaper for dads, daycare, grandmas, or on-the-run, it’s also my go-to overnight diaper for K.”

  241. Patty says:

    Here is a copy of an e-mail that I sent my cousin to persuade her to cloth diaper…success! She is now planning on cloth diapering both her little ones!

    Hey Sophie!
    I definitely understand your sentiments about cost of diapers! It’s CRAZY, isn’t it? Well, I have a lot to share about cloth diapers, so I will just dive right in. First of all, we LOVE them, and are definitely planning on doing it for all of Anna Kate’s time in diapers and for all of our future children as well. You’re absolutely right about all of the different info online, so I’ll just share with you what we do. We use the BumGenius All-in-One diapers that come in different sizes (S, M, L). We started off by just buying 24 smalls (8-16 lbs). AK was in those from 2 weeks old until today actually! We didn’t use them at first because of the umbilical cord (I liked those little disposables with the cut-out for it). Anyway, we just bought our 24 medium diapers which are for 15-22 lbs. Once she gets to 22 lbs, we’ll get 24 larges which are 22-32 lbs. Buying them one size at a time just worked better for us, to separate out the cost. The BumGenius All-in-Ones are one of the more expensive cloth diapers, but they are also hands-down the easiest (both for Mom and Dad, as well as for church nursery, babysitters, etc.). They really do just go on and off like a disposable with super easy velcro tabs.

    Ok, now, about the cost…one of my best friends from seminary did a ton of legwork as far as research goes, so rather than reinvent the wheel, I am going to e-mail you her findings so you can read them for yourself. Just so you know, since Luke is a big budget guy, he double-checked all of her numbers and found them to be extremely accurate! He also looked into consumer reports which says nearly the exact same thing about how much you will save.

    The company that we order ALL of our stuff from is They really do have everything you need and more! Also, just to list it out for you, here is what we bought for our first purchase.

    24 BumGenius All-in-One Small diapers (you can choose your colors)
    24 Kissaluvs cloth wipes
    2 Bummis XXL Diaper Totes (these are for your diaper pail – we just use a plastic trash can from WalMart). The totes are washable, so you wash the whole thing every time you do diapers. You need two so you always have one in your pail even while you’re doing laundry.
    3 Bummis Size Small Diaper Totes (these are for your diaper bag)
    3 Hemp Babies Diaper Doublers (these are overnight inserts that we stuff in the pocket of the diaper so that we don’t have any leaks even when we don’t change her for 10 hours).

    And that’s it!

    Alright, even if you made it through all of that reading, you still might have questions (I had a MILLION questions when we first started), so please feel free to ask! I am a huge proponent of cloth diapering, so I love to share what I’ve learned. Also, make sure you read the e-mail attachment that I send you as it does a GREAT cost breakdown analysis. And like I said, we did decide on one of the more expensive options, but we are still saving tons of money even just on our first child. Then all our other kids will be virtually free because we’ll just use the same diapers!

    I know that was a lot of info, but I hope it helps! Also, you may have fun just looking around as there is a TON of stuff there.


  242. Patty says:

    Here is a blog post I did back in February when we were first starting our cloth diaper journey. In it I mentioned BumGenius and as the cloth diapers we would be using. And I included pictures!

  243. Vered says:

    I think Cotton Babies products are wonderful – especially now that the BG pockets are bigger (I have a chunky monkey). I actually wanted to become the local distributor here in Israel but just recently crunched the numbers and saw it would be too big of an upfront investment for me at the moment. I am hoping I CAN do it in the near future and that nobody snatches it up first :-).
    Oh and I also posted on my facebook page:!/profile.php?id=100001201974230

  244. Becky says:

    I don’t know if this counts, but whenever people ask me about cloth diapering, I always suggest they go to for any cloth diaper purchases. Not only that, but many people in my life have immune problems that I think may be linked to the dioxins in their feminine products and I always recommend that they switch to mama cloth and suggest your site. I know my mom is looking into it and I hope to convince my sister too! I always tell them that Cottonbabies sells good quality products and when I tell them that they would get free shipping, it is a lot easier to convince them :)

  245. Jessica says:

    I recommended Cotton Babies for my favorite online CD store. “I was gonna say Cotton Babies, too.”


    Tweet Blaming CottonBabies for my addiction to cloth diapers :)

  247. Christian Lopez says:

    This was my profile pic on facebook and quite a few of my friends called me or commented to ask about why we use cloth diapers and where we got them. In my family and friend circle nobody uses cloth diapers and for me it was quite a passionate choice! We are so happy that our little babies barely leave a mark on our beautiful earth that God has given us, they are cloth diapered and 90% of our supplies come from cotton babies! It is the first place that I looked for cloth diapers and the last, I am very thankful there is such an extensive resource that encouraged me to switch! thank you!

  248. I blogged about my bumGenius experience and put a link on Twitter to promote the post:

  249. Juana Melendez says:

    I have personally talked to about 8-9 other young mothers that I know, being young my self, when i first started cloth diapering it was received with skepticism because no one in my family or in my husband’s family had cloth diapered but ive managed to make them come around and my mom has given out cloth diapering information to people that she knows because she sees what a great thing it is and my MIL is proud to say that her fifth grandson is cloth diapered. I wont stop at this, i have great ambitions with cloth diapering and i can only hope that one day i can open my own cloth diapering store here in town to educate people and help others embark on this green and wonderful journey. :)

    We’re moving to Korea this week and I can’t wait to take our 8 month old traveling around Asia and documenting as many crazy adventures as I can with my beloved camera. I hope that by exposing her to so many different cultures and experiences throughout her formative years that she will grow up to be a well-rounded young woman with a truly global perspective on life. And of course, to become a chopstick master.

    #FollowFriday hashtag @CottonBabies if you love cloth diapers!

  257. A friend of mine was due to have her fourth child in June. Her youngest was 8 and she had started to green up her family’s everyday life since then, i.e. eating organic, local food, checking ingredients on preducts, etc. I asked her if she had thought about cloth diapering and showed her the wonderful article in Mothering Magazine a couple months ago about cloth. She read it, asked me some questions ( I have now cloth diapered my two kids and plan to do so with #3 from birth). We talked about the use of cloth and what that would mean for her everyday routine. She ended up choosing cloth diapers (yeah!) and choose to use all cottonbabies products! I’ve had great experience with my Cottonbabies products and she wanted a great quality product that was affordable. I might now be reaching thousands of people, but if i can inform my friends one by one, it can make a differnce.

    I have people asking me about cloth diapering all the time now. I always tell them to go with BumGenius first. I love the OS and AIO. I am spreading the word to everyone! My cousin just had a baby and is asking about them now too.

  259. Tanya says:

    Also did I show you who I carry around with me all day wearing your awesome diapers 😉
    My daughter Orion! we NEVER put pants on her because I love when people ask AND it’s quite often what those “fancy pants” are… when I tell them they are diapers they nearly faint! they still have the concept of the clothespin diapers and of course I go on and on about how easy they are and your website. I should get some cards with your wenbsite printed by the way.. I love telling everyone about you!

    I already posted about several times this week.
    I posted a blog yesterday called “I HEART Econobums” which mentions Cotton Babies and several times:

    I also mentioned at least 4 times, that I can remember, on my FB page this week. Once in the caption of a photo I took of my new Econobums. Once to express my excitment about getting my Econobums. Again when I ordered more Econobums and again at my excitment of recieving a conformation e-mail that my Econobums had been shipped. I have been having a love affair with Econobums this week if you couldn’t tell

    I could only find these 2 on my page because the others are burried, but they are there haha

    Christy Reed WOO-HOO, Just got a confirmation e-mail from cotton babies that my new Econobums shipped. Hopefully they will come by Monday!

    Christy Reed I just ordered 2 more Econobum covers, 2 Indian prefolds and 2 Chinese prefolds (wanted to try ea) at! If anyone wanted to try cloth this is the best option! They have Econobums in their Seconds sale for $4.95 ea, the prefolds are $1.75 ea. Buy 2 covers and 6-8 prefolds (enough for 1 day) for the price of 1 package of sposies and if you don’t like cloth you didnt invest too much :)See More

    In my regular, everyday life, I don’t know anyone who uses cloth diapers, except me. I’ve been telling people about what I call “modern” cloth diapers since I starting using them.

    AWESOME! I recently became a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of your flip diapers! It inspired me to write my first blog here: and it took off from there I also switched to cloth wipes and have been raving about it, I got so many of my girlfriends hooked on flips.. I am even planning on doing flip giveaways OUT OF MY OWN POCKET! just so I can get more people to try at least using one diaper a day! ..

    If I win I am not keeping the diapers for myself but I will be giving them out to my blog readers in hopes they can see how simple cloth diapering really is! I am a fan of your company and your products. I hope more people make the change!

    I thought I’d write about this one in a somewhat different forum than I’m used to. I don’t know how the readers will respond to it, but at least it brought cloth diapering and CottonBabies to a place they may not have been talked about before. My post is in the Craigslist Ecology section. lol

    Because I pour over reviews when considering new diapering products, I also take the time to write reviews to help other parents make diapering decisions. I wrote a glowing review for BG 4.0s on the Happy Cotton Tails website, and Cotton Babies is specifically mentioned in the diaper description…so everyone will know just how wonderful CB and BGs are!!!

    I blogged about cloth diapering and linked to!

  283. Lindsey A says:

    I was on the FB Cotton Babies fan page posting a reminder about my Cotton Babies Free Cloth Diaper Week share site on Shutterfly, when I noticed a mom asking about using bleach on her BG 4.0s. I recently had a need to use bleach on mine for the first time, so I decided to respond to her question and help as much as I can. You can find it on your page (!/cottonbabies?ref=ts) on Sept. 10, but here’s the text of my response:

    Per CB, you can use up to 1/4 cup bleach in the hot wash cycle once per month. This is for both diapers and inserts. I just (very reluctantly) did it for the first time last week to combat odor; it worked like a charm, and my dipes are still in one piece!

    I often participate in online diapering discussions with other moms. I figure it’s a great way to influence them and learn more about CDing at the same time. :)

  284. I don’t think my first attempt went through (I can’t see it here anyway), so here it is again:

    I am a cotton babies addict! I am a photographer and I use bumgenius 3.0 on all my clients babies. They are always impressed and get a chance to see a “real” cloth diaper in action…most of the time they end buying a few (or “borrow” mine). Here is a link to one of my photo sessions:

    We talk about our BumGenius diapers all the time and have actually “converted” 3 other families since we started using them 7 months ago (when our first baby was born). To enter the contest, we created a “Cloth Diaper Rap” today and put it up on our blog. Enjoy!

  292. Not sure how this works, but I referred to Cotton Babies in my Facebook status tonight (, and if I can find time, I’ll blog about you tonight, too, at

    I started using bG! OS diapers just after they were introduced to the market in 2006, and I’ve upgraded to each new version with each new child: 2.0 in 2007, 3.0 in 2009 and I’m getting ready to purchase the newest 4.0 for our next arrival, due in late September. I’ve never used another diaper because I’ve never felt the need to experiment with any other brands — I love bumGenius! diapers, and I adore you, Jenn, and all you stand for as a mother and businesswoman. I prefer to only purchase from you, but I’ve had to venture to other vendors on occassion when you haven’t had something I needed.

    Love you, love your diapers, love what you’re about!

    I started using BG3.0 diapers over two years ago. I tell everyone about them and I have converted 5 friends that have had babies since then, including friends who live in Norway, where they don’t even have a dryer.

    Here is my facebook post:

    It says:

    BumGenious gentle enough for your baby’s most tender area, but strong enough to contain the absolute horror that comes out of there.

    And the in Spanish:

  296. I was interviewed for a newspaper story in Fargo, ND when we’d just started using bumGenius pocket diapers (which were a Godsend after starting out with prefolds/covers as a total newbie!!). The article on the Fargo Forum website is found in their archives here:

    Pulling some of the text here:
    Ditching disposables
    Tammy Swift, The Forum
    Published Tuesday, November 11, 2008

    When expectant mom Carolyn Moore announced at a baby shower that she planned to use cloth diapers, she was greeted by a simultaneous gasp of disbelief from her 40-odd shower guests.

    “I might as well have said I was giving birth on the moon,” recalls the young Minot, N.D., woman, laughing.

    Most shocked were the older women, who remember the days of dunking dirty nappies in the toilet, the overripe, Borax-tinged bouquet of the diaper pail and the prospect of trying to fasten pointy safety pins on a wriggling little body.

    But today’s cloth diapers have as much in common with old-school diapers as Supernanny does with Mary Poppins. Sporting cunningly cute names such as bumGenius or FuzziBunz, the new diapers are available in perky prints and trendy colors. They come outfitted with tailored shapes, super-soft fabrics and easy-to-fasten snaps or Velcro. Some have convenient inserts, which can be tossed in the washer or even thrown away. And some high-end diapers contain hemp, bamboo or pure wool – giving them an extra dash of eco-chic.

    Not surprisingly, retailers say more young parents are using them. These parents are motivated by everything from the new cloth diaper’s more user-friendly design to environmental concerns and just plain dollars and cents.

    Moore chose cloth diapers for all those reasons – and also because she believes it’s best for baby Meredith’s tender skin. Her own mother used cloth diapers, so it wasn’t an entirely foreign concept.


    When Moore and husband Charlie first tried cloth, they used the old-fashioned flat diapers. Charlie was completely overwhelmed by the pins and the folding. “In my opinion, they make good burp rags,” he says, smiling.

    Now they’ve switched to easier-to-use pocket diapers, although Charlie still gets frustrated by the tiny snaps.

    And, even if Moore advocates cloth, she understands it isn’t for everyone. “I know I have the flexibility to be able to do it because I stay home with her. But it’s a decision everyone makes, and either one is not wrong.”

  298. A friend asked me about cloth diapering, and the following is my ridiculously long response (and link to the post on my facebook wall)! I’m just excited about getting into cloth diapering and am loving sharing it with friends!!/profile.php?id=507044224

    Hey! Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you!! I kept typing out a response and then the internet would go down, or my hubby would somehow navigate away from the page and loose my whole response! Lol ok, so I use Fuzzi Bunz and BumGenius pocket diapers, GroVia hybrid diapers, and I have Thirsties and Bummis covers that go over the regular cloth diapers.

    The pocket dipes are really nice, you just stuff them with either the insert they come with or a prefold (which is the old fashioned regular cloth diapers, like the kind most people use as burp rags now). The prefold works best for me, as Leah is a pretty heavy wetter, although I have new BumGenius on the way and have never tried them but am SUPER EXCITED! (Cuz I’m a nerd :) And one of my good friends has told me that they soak up A LOT….and she has an 18 mo old who is also a heavy wetter…they last her overnight with no leaks.

    The GroVia hybrid is really neat and Erik’s favorite. It’s a shell (like a wrap cover) and it’s inserts snap in and out. You can use 3-4 inserts with each shell before needing to wash it, and it’s super easy to change which is why Erik loves it. It also fits nice and snuggly on my skinny girl…some people have a hard time with certain brands if their baby is super trim or shorter. You just have to try out different brands (which is why I have so many lol) and see what you like best!

    I tend to use (at least right now) 2 hemp inserts plus an extra soaker overnight with a regular cover, though I”m excited try the BG overnight!

    2 websites that I’ve bought from and like a lot are and And actually, all my FuzziBunz I bought off ebay used. I just look for the ones that look like theyre in good condition, not stained, etc and they’ve worked great for me! Not all of those come with inserts but I already had all the prefolds (I started out just using prefolds and covers, which worked really well when she was newborn because she didnt wiggle around when I changed her lol now is a different story!)

    I also bought a trash can to use as a diaper pail (cuz you do laundry every other day, and we were going through diaper genie refills like crazy!) and bought a reusable pail liner for it. You just take the pail liner out of the can, dump all the dipes in the wash and throw the pail liner in too! Works great! My friend just got an industrial bucket, like that you find in the hardware section that theyd use for paint or something and she uses that and says it works fine! Neither of us put the diaper covers/pocket dipes in the pail though, just the inserts/cloth diaper. The websites can also give you lists of the right types of laundry detergent to use (you cant use soaps with enzymes, dyes, perfumes, etc.) You can also do cloth wipes that just get thrown into the wash and reused as well!

    It can be a bit spendy when buying everything at once, but then you never have to again! I do have to say, i havent had any more leaks than I would have with disposables, and actually the cloth tends to hold it in better. They also get less diaper rash!! Which was a big reason why we switched in the first place. I did find a great diaper cream thats all natural that actually clears Leah’s up, but she had kind of a perma-rash going on from the gels and such that are used in the disposables. I hope this helped some, sorry if it was more than you were looking for lol

    My best friend Megan S. influenced my decision about starting cloth diapers. Whenever I have a question I always ask her first. I feel that the knowledge she has given to me I have been able to share with so many. I talk to moms everywhere, in grocery stores, baby stores, and while out even shopping for clothes. Sometimes someone strikes up a conversation with me about the diapers I am using because they can see when I change my son, that they don’t look exactly like disposables. So it is nice to be able to influence others even in the most unexpected ways. Still other people I come into contact still think reusable diapers are still in the dark ages. It is nice to be able to at least make someone think about this new but old option that is out there.

  319. Mary Beth says:

    Here’s a blog entry I just posted today on how and why I started cloth diapering! I often mention cloth diapering on my FB status.

    With BumGenius diapers you just can’t go wrong.

    They’re easy to wash, and they dry really fast.

  335. I made another review at Amazon,this time for the 4.0, because I notice there’s a lot of Bumgenius stuff there without reviews yet, and personally reviews are a really important part of my buying decision.

  338. Jenn says:

    When I first had my son I had no interest and really didn’t know much about cloth diapers. I had some online friends have babies after I did and they started from the beginning with cloth. One of them showed me a photo of her little girl in a bG 3.0 and I was really intrigued and wanted to know more. The more I researched and the more I learned the more I couldn’t wait to make the switch. While it took me until my son was 17 months old, I know now that I will start with cloth from the beginning with my next child(ren). And honestly, it’s never too late to make the switch! When people asked me why I switched one of my first comments is always “I wish I would have done it months and months ago!”

  339. Jenn says:

    I just had a nice long talk yesterday with my son’s daycare provider about switching to cloth. She has never used cloth with any of the kids she’s watched. I brought the bG 4.0 I have with me to show her what they look like and how super easy they are. Once she felt how soft it was and how easy the snaps are she was totally on board! She said, of course I’ll do it! Stop buying disposables to use here and start bringing these. I was beyond excited that she’d do it for me. Yay for spreading the good news about cloth!

    We had our little one’s newborn pictures done in a BG AIO.

  349. (I apologize if this is a duplicate, didn’t see the first one being posted…)

    I started making our own cloth diapers after about 10 months of using them. Our stash was mostly consist of BumGenius 3.0 along with few other brands. We loved our BG, however wished there was more variable styles to choose from, and that was why I started making them.

    Everytime there was someone pregnant at work, my husband would ask me to put together our stash and bring it to work so he could show the cds to the expecting moms and hoping they would use cloth diapers :)

I update my blog for friends and family back in St. Louis so they can see what’s going on with my daughter. I also have links on the side of my blog to my favorite websites, and the Cotton Babies blog and a link to the BumGenius 4.0s is on there. I also posted about the BumGenius diapers on Facebook and posted pics and had lots of people asking questions so I will post that link when I get home from work since FB is blocked here.

    I for sure mentioned bumGenius in the photos captions.

  357. I reccomended to my older sister while she is trying to potty train her 3 year old. I talked to her about the benefits of cloth diaper potty training pants as opposed to disposables. She bought some waterproof covers and is trying it out!

  359. I’ve had several FB status upadtes the past month on cloth diapering my 18 month old. We started cloth diapering again after one too many blow outs of disposables. I have had several people comment and ask how I do it. I’m always happy to give tips!

  360. I am a military wife and mother of 2 boys (ages 2 years old and 8 months). I used disposable diapers on my eldest son until he was 1. I won a Fuzzi Bunz diaper from a blog giveaway and this event changed my whole world. I had always thought of myself as being green and frugal, but just could not fathom how I could make the switch to cloth diapers…. the mess, the cost, the difficulty in caring for cloth. My mind was transformed when I tried that first cloth diaper. My interest sparked and I began my journey to cloth. I devoured information about cloth diapering. I researched brands and cost. This is where Cotton Babies comes in. I scoured your website for information! Once I had enough ammunition (information) to back my reasoning behind wanting to cloth diaper (it really was affordable, not as difficult as I had thought to clean and care for) I set my sights on him… My beloved husband of 7 years. As a military man, my husband is a matter of fact kind of guy. When given the choice, he chooses the most logical one. At first mention, he was TOTALLY against cloth diapering! I printed out several articles, and discussions that I had found on Cotton Babies, and with my hopes high and my new-found passion for cloth diapers, I approached him!! I argued that cloth diapers were so much more affordable than disposables. (I actually calculated our disposable cost):
    Pampers = .25 each, we were using on average 7 diapers a day, which came to a whopping $630.00 a year! My husband and I had just recently been trying for baby number 2 (which added more value to my argument that cloth diapers were so much more economical). With two babies in diapers, I respectfully argued that we would be spending at least $1260.00 a year on diapers. After digesting the words from my mouth, he came back with “well, who is going to clean up all those messy diapers, and what do you do with them anyways, you don’t wash them in the same washing machine that we use for our clothes, do you??”
    This is when I turned to the BumGenius website. I showed him the following information:
    “How many diapers do I need?” “How do I wash my new diapers?” “Do you have any other washing tips?” found on the BumGenius Customer Support page:
    I convinced my husband that we could get by on 24 cloth diapers that could cost us anywhere from $250.00-$350.00 depending on the quality and style of the diapers we bought. I then pulled out a printed article from Time Magazine titled “Diapers go Green.”,9171,1702357,00.html
    It was this article that sealed the deal. My, oh so analytical husband poured over this article and after reading and re-reading it, and looking again at my figures, he looked up at me and simply said “you win.” I could not believe it, I had convinced him to let us cloth diaper our baby!!
    The article in the Times gave a direct quote from the founder of Cotton Babies, Jenn Labit. She stated “They don’t leak or sag or get stinky” when talking about modern cloth diapers. This statement supported my argument that caring for cloth diapers (and the children you love that wear them) is not so difficult. We then made the switch. Our stash consists of a mix of Fuzzi Bunz, BumGenius, and a few Econobums. All of the information given on the Cotton Babies website, the article in the Times, helped me gather the tools I needed to convince my soldier that making the switch to cloth diapers was not the battle he thought it would be!
    One month after going all cloth, we found out we were expecting our second baby. All I could do was to look up at my husband and say “these diapers are going to save us another $630.00 a year.” He just looked at me and smiled!
    Thank you Cotton Babies!!!

    Im a youtube mommy vlogger and just started cloth diapering not to long ago. I wish I would have started sooner because its amazing! I made a video on cloth diapering basics and linked cotton babies website :) Since posting I have received several emails from moms switching to cloth! Here is that video! I also convinced my close family members to try it out :) they are hooked! I love my Fuzzibunz and plan on trying out some Bum Genuis soon!

  383. Mary says:

    I am also organizing an event in my moms group that will be a cloth diaper buy/ sell/ trade, and learn about it!! We don’t have a date set yet, but I hope to educate and convert some of our moms group to cloth!! It is a passion of mine!! I can link you to our group but it’s private so I don’t know that you will be able to see it.
    I also have a friend that is thinking about cloth for her 10 month old and wanted to see if it was too late. I told her no way!! You can still get your $$ worth if you switch now.

  384. My daughter is currently 7 months and is a BumGenius baby, through and through — thanks to Cotton Babies. We displayed pictures of her wearing them on our blog. Whenever we take her to the pediatrician and her specialists, they all comment on how wonderful her diapers are. We have converted many of my Indian friends and family to try them out….Thank you!!

  385. We love our Bum Genius. The decision to start and stay in cloth was easy for us. When we use the occasional disposable when traveling we can’t wait to get back into cloth. Always reliable and never smells like disposable. What I love most is the ease of use. When we started I thought it would take forever to wash and put together but now we have the process down and by morning we have a fresh new supply.

    I love my BG’s so I do a number of things to promote them. I work part time and whenever someone at work is expecting I make sure and share my cloth experience with them. When we are out with other mom’s and babies I like to let other mom’s see me use my BG’s. They usually asks questions and it gives me an opportunity to give my little speech on cloth without being pushy.

    I like to support other cloth moms by answering questions on the cloth board. I also will post pictures of my son Karsten in his BG’s on my facebook page. Having Karsten show off his BG’s usually gets some questions from my facebook mom friends and gives me another opportunity to share our experience.

    Here is one of many examples:

  399. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    Oh yeah, and my kids are wearing their BG Organic OS AIOs and Babylegs in my profile picture on Facebook (as well as throughout each of their photo albums):

  400. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    Last, but not least, we have Cotton Babies linked under our “Favorite Links” section of our blog, where we send everyone to shop :)

  401. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    And finally, here is our “Stash” blog post, where we show off all our BGs and FLIPs! Of course, now we own 2 more FLIPs in Ribbit, 6 FLIPs in Blossom, 6 FLIP Organic inserts, and 2 BG 4.0s. I guess I need to take a new stash picture…

  402. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    This is my blog post where I decided to use FLIPs instead of gDiapers, for 2 reasons: they have zero leak issues (we always had problems with the gDiapers at daycare), and they are less expensive. We’ve all (including daycare) been loving the switch! And they fit well on my 12 lb newborn, who started daycare just this week…

  403. Louise says:

    I have had this post in my head for a while. It includes a pic I took as I was sunning my daughter’s xs BG AIOs before I returned them to a friend. Outgrowing her baby diapers was bitter sweet for me.

  404. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    This is my blog post where I talk about how we had to switch overnight dipes. We went from FuzziBunz to BG 3.0s and we’ve been leak-free and dry-skinned and happy ever since :)

  405. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    This is my blog post where I sweetly asked my friends and family NOT to buy us any sposies for baby #2 because we would be cloth diapering her as well, starting from day one. It was also my not-so-sneaky way of telling them I wouldn’t be registering anywhere, but that I wanted BG Organics in pink for my baby girl!

  406. VirtualM says:

    Here’s the blog post about it. I talk about Bum Genius diapers because they are my favs. :)

  407. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    This was my first blog post about cloth diapering, back when we switched to cloth when my son was 5-months-old (he’s 18-months-old now). He’s been in the BG Organic OS AIOs since day one, and surprisingly, he still wears them on the same settings (tiny waist, but big belly)! This is the post that helped me convert 3 friends and 1 family member to cloth diapering, so I’m pretty proud of it!

  408. The Shindels says:

    I commented a few times on a friend’s picture of her cloth diapers line drying. Commented on how soon we wanted to start with our newborn, who will be a month old in 2 days. Also commented referencing Cotton Babies and the website and our favorite diapers. A mutual friend who was considering cloth diapers wound up purchasing some Flips per our recommendation! The comments were left on a friend’s FB page, who happens to be a fan of Cotton Babies. Hopefully this link will get you to the picture with the comments.!/photo.php?pid=6402406&id=736735627&ref=fbx_album

  409. TEAM LINDSAY says:

    I blog about cloth diapering ALL the time! One of my more recent posts was about how my newborn outgrew her prefolds and I was finally able to move her into her BG Organic OS AIOs, the same dipes that her brother uses. They are so cute in their matching dipes:

  413. I blogged about my love story for Bum Genius diapers today. I’ve been meaning to do it for a while, and you gave me a reason to do it now!
    Enjoy! I have posted on FB about diapers a few times, and have had multiple friends ask me questions about getting started. I’ve converted a few! I’d say that’s success! Hopefully my blog will convince a few more!

  414. I blogged the beginning of my journey with cloth diapers about a week ago!
    I have encouraged several of my friends to give cd a try, and have always mentioned that is my favorite website! At least one of my friends has chosen to start using cloth diapers!
    However, the most important people that I influence on a daily basis are my husband and my son. I am a stay at home mom, and loving every minute of! I am hoping to be the best mom that i can possibly be, and I feel that using cloth diapers is a great start. Not only am I contributing to his health, but am also helping keep the landfill from filling up. It has taken me awhile to get the hang of things, but every day, I find myself using them more and more! Thank you Cotton Babies for influencing me so that I can influence others!

    I wrote a poem about my love for bumgenius and I posted it on my wall on facebook. Here’s a copy of it and the link to my wall is below it:

    Fluffy butt, oh fluffy butt, What would I do without you? Oh how I love my bumgenius 4.0, I want the whole world to know! is where you should be, they have great prices and the shipping is always free! With color choices like bubble, noodle, blossom & sweet, You’ll love your bumgenius so much, you’ll be dancin in the street!!

    the link to my facebook wall is if it doesnt work Im also a fan on the cottonbabies page on facebook so you find my page by clicking on my name under your fans list.

  418. When we started cloth diapering, I spent countless hours searching for reviews one what to buy, and my head would spin with all the cloth diaper lingo and trying to understand what all the different styles were. I’m part of a local board on and there were only a couple of mom’s who cloth diapered locally when I started, so I spent most of my time on a national Eco Friendly Board. Although I got tons of information from there, it’s nice to have resources close to home and other local moms who are supportive of something you are passionate about. I’m proud to say that there are now tons of moms on my local board who cloth diaper, and cloth diaper questions are now occur very regularly! There are many responses and people we can rely on when we have questions. So happy to have such a supportive group of women and for us to be making such an impact on cloth diapering in our area!

    My sphere of influence is mostly my circle of friends, family, and the Luna Moms Meetup group I’m a part of. I’ve successfully shown 5 Moms how easy it is to cloth diaper… and 4 of them have found Cotton Babies to be one of their favorites! Recently, my group of friends gave one of the Moms a big package of Flip Diapers (her favorite) – she got 4 covers and 10 inserts! :)
    I also love to share cloth diaper info via Facebook and Twitter.
    I have also written articles for The Cloth Diaper Whisperer Blog!
    I may not be super creative about my means, but I try to influence the best I can! :)

    I have shared info via word of mouth and facebook numerous times as well as the blog post I mentioned in a previou comment…Here are some of the things I mentioned on FB (these were done through messaging, so I’m not sure how to link them or if that’s possible. If this doesn’t count, oh well!)

    “I think I like customer service better, though to tell you the truth. I ordered my flips from cottonbabies…”

    “…the Flip stay-dry inserts are excellent at pulling the moiture away. The stay-dry insert with the flip actually does feel dry when you touch it, but the back (the part that touches the cover) is soaked. So the baby’s bottom does not collect moisture/wetness. Same with fuzzibunz- the fleece pulls the moisture away and the insert feels soaked, but not the part that touches the baby. I’ve never had any issues thus far with rashes…”

    I think the two woman who were asking qestions went on t order from and I noticed her fb status a few weeks ago was “stil excited about my decision to cloth diaper!” – That made me excied just to see I had positively influenced her! : )

    I’m always willing to share any input on cloth. People who once thought I was crazy for using cloth quickly chane their minds when they actually SEE the diapers. Word of mouth and first-hand experience go a long way!

    Thanks again, cotton babies for a fun week!

  429. Rachael W says:

    Growing up as a child, I remember my mother using cloth diapers on my younger siblings. I thought it was the regular way to keep baby bums tidy and clean. I have one memory of walking down the diaper aisle at the grocery store. I looked around in awe of shelves filled with disposable diapers. I remember pondering important questions such as- Why would you throw a diaper away? What are they made of if they aren’t made of cloth? Why would someone spend $10 on diapers they can use once, when they could spend $10 on a toy? I am now pregnant with my first child, impatient to try the next generation of cloth diapers that are now offered. I hope that my children will grow up asking the same questions I did as a young child.

    I’ve convinced 3 friends (so far) to cloth diaper. One of them I gave our newborn stash. All 3 are still going strong That’s how many diapers out of a landfill??

    I don’t have a blog but I do love and promote BG all the time.
    I have convinced alot of my friends to try cloth using the BG’s as a great example for how easy, cute and just plain wonderful cloth diapering can be. I had one friend who was in search of something thin for her daughter to wear under jeans so I showed her my BG AIO and she fell in love and ordered around 20 of them. I have a few other friends whom I convinced to try cloth by lending them a few new BG OS diapers to try because I find that they are the easiest to stuff and put on. They could not believe that you could just put them on like a disposable minus the stuffing and washing. They were hooked and I gave my Mothering magazine code from a few months back to one of them who ordered 24. My other friend ordered a few as well.
    A friend and I might be starting an online CD/natural baby store in the near future and we will most definatly be carrying the BG 4.0, elemental and sized AIO. I only want to sell brands that I love and trust and that I can give true reviews about and BG in #1 in my books.

    I blogged about my decision to cloth diaper a while back. I referred to Cotton Babies, flips, and bumgenius in the post. I got quite a few comments and emails from the post and know of two people for sure who switched to cloth (spcifically bumgenius & flip) because of the post. Since then, I have had several people approach me with quesions about cloth to which I’m always happy to share any info! I openly admit I am a bit obsessed with cloth diapering! But it’s a pretty good addiction to have (my sweet babies think so too!) : )

    Here’s a link to my blog post:

    “(My name): I know I’m on a cloth diaper kick today with my updates but seriously, all you fellow grad-student (or any income level, really) families with kiddos in diapers… consider cloth!

  440. And how funny that this morning my friend just emailed me that she had her baby! Her name is Suzannah and I asker her if she thought of CDing? So I asked her to enter this giveaway, which would be great for anyone just starting out. I also am mailing her all of my newborn diapers. I really hope she tries them, and she said she would. Her mom is staying with her for a month so hopefully she will not feel like laundry is an issue. I am a little sad, I had to get rid of my itty bitty diapers. I hope she has the time to enter your giveaway and I really hope she makes use of the diapers. I also mailed her my glass bottles that I never really needed. She wont be bfing :(

    I was determined to breastfeed my daughter and cloth diaper her since I was unable to with my son. I unfortunately was unable to breastfeed my daughter any longer then three months and was about to give up on cloth diapering too because I couldn’t find the right diapering solution for her. In a last effort to keep my cloth diapering dream alive I found and tried bumGenius pocket diapers. These diapers were the answer we were looking for…awesome fit, super comfy, stay dry inner, no leaks and to top it off they are super cute!

    I know tell everyone about bumGenius and how wonderful of a product they are. I even lend out some of my diapers to friends with new babies and have converted a few to cloth diapering.

    Thank you for making such a wonderful product and allowing me to keep one of my dreams ALIVE!

    I also have a cousin interested in trying cloth diapers with her daughter due in January. I’m passing to her the part of my stash too small now for my four month old, and plan on getting her two bumGenius 4.0 OS for overnight use. This six pack could go a long way in helping those of us that CD without a lot of money :)

    We have a combination of Flip systems and bum geniues 3.0, and I prefer the bum genius by far. The FLIP is a cover and a stay dry insert but when my 13 month old has a poop explosion it can leak, that does not happen with the bum genius. Once you get used to it, they are really not that different from disposables. Two things you will need though if you are going to cloth diaper, is a diaper sprayer and a carbon bin to put the dirties in!

    I wrote a couple of posts on my blog about Bum Genius. I have now converted 5 people to cloth and a couple more are saving up for them. I also posted a couple of pics of my son in his bg 4.0 on fb.

    Our daughter was born at the end of 2008, and we had just moved to a new city, and were trying to get settled. Prior to her birth, I thought about using cloth diapers, but just didn’t have time to do my homework. Two months after her birth, I was sickened about the money we were spending that was just ending up in a landfill! So, we took the plunge into cloth diapers, and have LOVED it ever since. I blogged about the switch, in February of 2009, and referenced Cotton Babies as the very first link of resources! Check it out:

    I am always trying to convert :) Here is my latest facebook pic along with my comments…. plus if you scroll through my page, you’ll see my husband make reference to my diaper addiction every month or so.!/photo.php?pid=1023591&id=1635854455&ref=fbx_album

    I’ve been using bumGenius cloth diapers for almost two years, I give you free advertising all the time! :) Here are a few recent examples.

    After seeing our diapers at family events and hearing us rave about them, my sister-in-law converted to bumGenius diapers for her youngest daughter earlier this year. She loves them, too.

    I posted the video link of the Today Show activities on my Facebook page. I included a note stating that these were the diapers we used and that I’d be happy to share more information with anyone interested in learning more about cloth diapers. Two of my friends who were expecting their first children asked me for more information. I emailed them links to Cotton Babies and shared many tips about cloth diapers.

    Another pregnant friend just ordered her first three cloth diapers when I sent her a link about the seconds sale. She’s very excited. We’ve been chatting about diapers since before she was expecting. I received her baby shower invitation in the mail this week, and they’ve included a link to Cotton Babies asking people to purchase bumGenius instead of disposable diapers.

    I post about my diapering experiences on parenting message boards and I tell everyone I know how much we love our bumGenius diapers. My second child was born this summer, and I’ve posted several photos of him at various sizes in cloth diapers on my Facebook page to help my pregnant friends and new mommy friends see the diapers in action.

  489. Sara says:

    I have personally influenced 3 other moms (one in Arizona, one here in Iowa, and one in New York) to cloth diaper, and have recommended BumGenius to all of them! My cloth diaper blog isn’t widely read, but several people have used it to help them get started, and it is linked from my personal blogs, which has a lot of visitors. I blogged about BumGenius specifically today!

  491. Here, I wrote an article a few months ago about why cloth diapering makes sense and I broke down the different types, washing, environmental studies etc. I also said that my favorite place to buy was Cotton Babies and I referenced Bum Genius as well. Love Cotton babies and Bum Genius!!!!

    Anyway, I had SO many emails of people wanting to switch or who read my post and decided to switch. That is an awesome feeling, knowing that I’ve influenced someone to do something good for their babies and the environment!

    I also like to comment on other people’s blogs about cloth diapers. Here’s one I posted over at when there was talk of buying new diapers or having BumGeniuses converted to snaps because the velcro wore out:

    “Guys! You can buy BG refresher kits for A BUCK FIFTY. You get new velcro and elastic pieces. If your velcro wears out before it’s been a year (another good reason to wait to buy them until you’re actually going to use them), SEND THEM BACK AND GET NEW DIAPERS. I just had 15 of my BumGenius 3.0s replaced for FREE because the velcro wore out. And I do mean replaced: soft, sparkly, brand new diapers. For the two diapers that I couldn’t find the receipts for I bought new velcro (and it’s their New velcro) for THREE DOLLARS total. Guys. One hundred and fifty cents per diaper to replace the velcro and elastic is way cheaper than new diapers. And it comes with really detailed instructions and a template for sewing. Sorry for all the CAPS LIKE WHOA; I get a little emotional about cloth diapers.

    I do not have a blog (yet), facebook, or twitter, but I did write a review on the Cotton Babies website for BG 3.0s. I hope this counts…I really do love BG 3.0s from Cotton Babies, and can’t wait to add the BG 4.0s to my stash.

    I love my BG 3.0 so much that I cringe at the thought of using disposable diapers now. I used disposables on my first two children, but with my third baby I really wanted to try cloth diapers. She is now 8 months old and there is no turning back. We use them all day everyday, even at night and just add an extra insert (she sleeps 12 hours). My husband is even on board. I have converted my sister too, who is due with her first baby in December. Now I have my eye on the BG 4.0. Can’t wait to add a few of those to my stash one day.

    I wrote a post about nighttime cloth diapering featuring your sock insert. I think it gets overlooked and it’s a perfect inexpensive solution to making any insert soft and stay dry.

    This is a different way I shared Cotton Babies with people I love–outside of the bounds of the internet!

    I am a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Coordinator for Grace Community Chapel in St. Peters, Missouri. Last year, our MOPS theme dealt with “Life on Planet Mom”, in keeping with that idea I wanted to have a day about how we could go “green” as moms. Part of my idea for the day was to share about modern cloth diapering! I was able to contact Cotton Babies and talk with KC Brandt about sending a rep to speak to our group. On October 13th, 2009, two wonderful ladies from Cotton Babies spoke to our group of 50 moms. They not only showed us the different diapers–including the new Econobum and Flip diapers (I was so thrilled to get to see them!), they also gave out great information, very nice books about BG diapers, and showed us several other great baby products including a wrap and Sophie!

    At the end of our meeting, several moms bought diapers and were really excited to try them! The meeting got a great response, even from our mentors (older women who help with our group), who couldn’t wait to tell their daughters and friends about how different cloth is now!

    I was so excited to share the bumGenius brand with my moms and I think, more than anything, they came away with an idea of how awesome Cotton Babies is as a company. One thing that impressed our group more than anything was how Cotton Babies got started and how they do diaper donations to missionaries, etc. This was really special to several of our moms, as they have served or have families that serve in a missions field.

    I had loved Cotton Babies for awhile, but after that morning, I was smitten! I couldn’t believe that Cotton Babies took time out of a busy work schedule to drive, bring products, and speak to my group–all for free! I truly think that the most effective sharing of cloth diapering begins with one mom sharing with another and Cotton Babies proved that they are a personal, loving company who wants to reach each individual family about the importance and ease of cloth diapering!

    Thanks again for speaking to my group and allowing me to share you with my MOPS “world”!

    I blogged about using cloth diapers while vacationing. I try to encourage and promote cloth diapering wherever I go and it can be done AWAY from home just as easily as using disposables. I wrote this so other Mom’s would not choose disposable just because they were on vacation. I don’t have a diaper sprayer at home and so it was a cinch not using one while traveling.

    I talk about our cloth diapers on our blog, and with everyone we meet with kids in diapers, fairly often.
    blog entries:,,

    (email to a friend)

    I really do love our cloth diapers!… I definitely prefer the bumgenius! … We have the one-size diapers, which means you need to stuff the inserts into the shells after washing, but they still fit Parker, who’s having a hard time potty training. It’s fantastic to not have to ever buy diapers, no matter how the kids are growing. They’re also big enough to fit a few doublers in with the regular insert for extra night time absorbency. … We’ve loved the bumgenius! cotton babies ( also sells a sprayer that you can attach to the toilet to spray poo off of diapers as the kids get bigger. We’ve never had any problems with the diapers coming clean, and our washer comes out clean as well. We bought the additive free detergent at Costco, as well. The bumgenius are just as easy to use as disposables, although they are bulkier in the diaper bag. We just bought a reusable zipper wet bag so that we don’t have to carry a plastic bag around in our diaper bag. As far as how many to get, it probably depends on how often your baby urinates and poos a day… I’d probably recommend 12, so that you have enough to wash and still have some to put on the baby. More diapers also means less wear and tear on them. My kids definitely prefer the cloth to anything else. cotton babies is having a seconds sale right now, selling diapers with cosmetic defects, for $12… ( Bumgenius, Flip, and Econobum diapers also come with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee ( Our only regret with the diapers is that we didn’t switch sooner! I still like the econobum, which are much less expensive, but they’re not nearly as convenient, and are a little less comfy for the boys. The velcro on the bumgenius can leave irritation on the kids’ legs if baby’s just wearing a diaper and the velcro isn’t on straight, but we haven’t had any big problems. Honestly, the boys do spend a considerable amount of time just in their diapers!!!

    I hope I answered your questions, despite the rambling nature of my email. I could talk about cloth diapers forever! We really do love them, and from everyone I’ve talked to, bumgenius are the best! Other diapers have comparable prices for comparable products, but they’re not as good! You can go less expensive, but you might run into more hassle. The econobum aren’t bad, but since you’re starting with a newborn (or still pretty young) you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of the 4.0s, or even the 3.0s on the seconds sale!

    I have been working on my best friend (for a year) about converting to cloth diapers and finally a few weeks ago she called and asked me to bring over some cloth!!! I brought her FLIP covers with organic inserts, Organic AIO’s, and 3.0 pockets! NOW SHE IS CONVERTED! Thanks COTTONBABIES!!!

  509. Fluff Party!

    Just this week I gathered 7 mama’s, either expecting babies soon, currently doing cloth or wanting to do cloth diapering. I made a simple brunch for them, left the children to play in the yard and we gathered around a table in the yard filled with different types of cloth diapers. Everyone shared their love of cloth diapering and what worked for their little the best. The new mamas asked questions and we were able to answer their questions and encourage them cloth diaper. I called it my Fluff Party and it was a success!
    This is a great way to see what all us stay-at-home and working mama’s are really about. Cloth diapers is so much more than just saving the environment and money. It becomes a passion for us. I started just a year ago and knew of one other mama that did cloth diapering. Now a year later so many of my friends have been inspired by me to explore cloth diapering for their little ones. I never set out to convince or inspire others, I just love doing it myself and other mama’s can see that love.
    Here is the link to my invite and our cloth diapering discussion ….!/?page=1&sk=messages&tid=1429133099515

    Thanks for running a great business Cotton babies! We love ya!
