One mini human is ready to take on the Chennai summer, flashing his airy, breathable Bumpadum fitted dipe OTB. Many thanks, Bumpadum for sending us this for review. For those of you who don’t know my MCD spending patterns, I must mention that, this is THE brand that has a big share of my wallet section for cloth diapers. Such is the awesomeness of this Indian company that manufactures a wide range of products that are all eco-friendly options for the cloth diapering folks — from wipes to wetbags to different types of CDs. Not to forget, the prints are really unique and very cute. Check out my ‘London’ fitted from their ‘Around the world’ series. ❤
Fitted diapers, commonly referred to as Fitteds, are brilliant cloth diapers (CDs) which combine ease of use and flexibility. They closely resemble the size and shape of disposable diapers. Though, with the variety of super absorbent and breathable fabrics to choose from these are hands-down one of the best cloth diapering options available to suit your little one’s individual needs. They are considered a breathable option especially suited for babies with sensitive skin and are prone to rashes. Although Fitted Diapers are not waterproof and do require the use of a diaper cover, herein lies one of their advantages! You decide: wool, fleece, or PUL covers; some parents even opt to go coverless (usually when indoors or when trying to clear up a diaper rash).
Packaging: I like that they have a zero plastic packaging. The dipe comes packed in a lovely velour cloth that can be used as a baby wipe.
Bumpadum’s fitteds look similar to the duet range they have recently release, but the only difference is that the outer shell is non-laminated making it breathable. That also means the shell isn’t waterproof and has to be used with a cover on top when used for longer periods such as night time.
Shell: Oh so soft microfleece. It has 2 snaps to put in the insert of your choice.
The insert: The signature ‘buttery soft’ tongue like insert if you have chosen the night time insert, else the 2 part one, if you bought the day time one. These are lined with micro fleece on the side that touches baby’s bottom to provide stay dry effect. Both the inserts have two layers of hemp fleece and two layers of cotton terry, providing 8 layers of absorbency together. The inserts need 8-9 washes to be fully prepped.
Because I couldn’t wait to try it on the little, this went OTB after 2 washes, and it functioned really well because for someone in a heavy wetter category, it held up for almost 5 hours. 😮 I can not imagine how long this will hold when it is fully prepped.
We also tested once for night time so far and it is working brilliantly. My LO sleeps about 9-10 hours straight and this worked well. There was only a slight dampness in the early morn. i used without the cover – maybe I will use a cover for night time.
This has been tested on my 19 month old son who is a heavy heavy wetter.
- Most absorbent and leak-proof diapering option
- Excellent solution for a heavy-wetter (particularly when combined with a wool cover)
- Extremely Trim
- The extra snaps in the front, allow it to be used for newborns as well, I would say.
Overall, a must have CD for a summer stash.
