Bummis Super Brite and Newborn Prefolds

When my friend Nikki had her tiny, tiny little girl, she found that a lot of newborn diapers were just plain too big.  That meant I got to problem solve: I came over to help her get the right fit.  Nikki had plenty of newborn size Bummis prefolds to work with, and she’d already decided that she really loved the bikini twist fold for containment.  However, her covers (which were mainly Blueberry Capri newborn size) were far too big for Small Fry.  I came over to experiment with some diapers and we started with the Bummis Super Brite.

About the Bummis Super Brite

The Bummis Super Brite newborn cover is smaller than other Bummis covers.  The Super Whisper Wrap, Super Whisper Snap Wrap, and Super Lite newborn covers fit newborns starting at six pounds.  The Bummis Super Brite starts at four pounds.  It was the perfect size for Small Fry.  Even better?  Bummis covers are made in Canada.

As you can see, the Bummis Super Brite fit Small Fry without any weird tugging or adjusting.  It simply went on and fit.  Granted, because the Super Brite newborn size cover is so small, it will be one of the first things that Small Fry outgrows.  However, during this time, it’s perfect.  Even better?  It has double gussets to contain the messy of runny newborn poo.

Would I Recommend It?

If you’ve got a tiny newborn and you really want to start cloth right away, Bummis Super Brite is your best shot.  It’s absolutely worth it in the newborn stage, and when you’re in the bigger sizes, you’ll get more longevity out of those covers as their growth slows.

Pros: Perfect fit, reasonable price.

Cons: Shorter life span, doesn’t have great resale value.
