Cloth Diapers for Baby Dilly?

Jill Duggar Dillard shared an Instagram photo of herself and her husband… and shared that they were considering cloth diapers for Baby Dilly.

Cloth Diapers for Baby Dilly?Let’s be honest: I’m thrilled.  I can’t think of a better way to #makeclothmainstream than for them to be a regular staple on a reality show.  Of course, there’s more to it than just that.  Cloth diapers for Baby Dilly is the way to go, and that’s largely because I’m quite certain that there will be dozens of siblings for that little one.  (I don’t watch the show because I don’t do reality TV, but I’m not living under a rock.)  However, the young Mrs. Dillard’s family members used cloth at one point and quit because it was “too time consuming.”  When you consider that the young Mrs. Dillard grew up in a house with so many siblings that an in-home laundromat would be required to keep up, it’s not surprising that they’d give up on it.

New BumGenius Color! Hummingbird!

I LOVE when new colors come out in any diaper.  The last new bumGenius release made me deliriously happy with Carroll, Jules, and the Chelsea Perry series.  Now?  We get a brand new solid bumGenius color.  The last time we got new bumGenius colors was when Mirror, Sassy, and Dazzle were released.

Since a whole lot of people were unhappy when the bumGenius color Ribbit was discontinued, they had to do something to make us feel better.  I think they’ve done it. [Read more…]

BumGenius Freetime vs. BumGenius Elemental – What’s the Difference?

BumGenius Freetime vs. BumGenius Elemental (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Not too long ago, I was on a local cloth diapering Facebook group.  I saw a mom ask about the difference between BumGenius Freetime cloth diapers and the BumGenius Elemental.  An answer was “I think one is Velcro only and the other is snaps.”  I politely explained the difference.

On the outside, BumGenius Freetime and the BumGenius Elemental are nearly the same.  They both have the same shell that Cotton Babies uses across all of their lines.  Both are available as a snap closure and a hook and loop closure.  Either diaper can be purchased in the full rainbow of Cotton Babies colors.  The only difference is in the leg elastics.  You hardly tell them apart on the outside at all, and even then you’ll only know if you’re looking for it.  The real difference is on the inside.

BumGenius Freetime vs. Elemental (Cloth Diaper Addicts)BumGenius Freetime has two flaps for their absorbency.  The great thing about this flap system is that they are quick to dry.  The Freetime dries faster than a lot of my all-in-one diapers.  The absorbent pads are microfiber topped with a wicking micro suede, which is great for keeping baby’s bottom dry.

The BumGenius Elemental is the organic diaper.  Of course, the outer is synthetic with PUL, which keeps it leak proof, but the organic aspects come from the inside.  If you love the BumGenius design but don’t love synthetics, this is the diaper for you.  The fabric inside is organic cotton.  The layout of the diaper is similar to that of the GroVia hybrid organic inserts: you’ve got two sheets of organic cotton to do the absorbing.  The downside of the Elemental is that it does not wick moisture away.  Because both ends of the absorbent cotton are sewn into the diaper, it takes far longer to dry than the Freetime.

There’s your differences in the Freetime and the Elemental in a nutshell.  Both are great diapers in my stash and are backed by the Cotton Babies warranty.  Do you have a preference?
