In keeping with the saying, “necessity is the mother of invention”, all of our products have been designed out of a need for something different, says Jenn, the creator of bumgenius, an american brand of diapers made by Cotton Babies
The Cotton Babies One-Size Microfiber Insert happened one night when I was sewing some inserts up for a customer. I had a snap press in my sewing room and late one night, totally on a whim, I added a snap to the insert to make it shorter. Our design was met with resounding applause and we were off and running. We both thought it made sense to design a diaper to work with our insert. The demands of a growing business and having another baby meant that it took some time for that dream to become reality. When it did though, bumGenius! One-Size Cloth Diapers were born.
Today, bumGenius branded products are conscientiously produced in the United States in their own factory! They are Oeko tex certified, right down to their snaps. They make everything from newborn nappies, organic cotton aio (all in one), bumgenius flip which is a two piece system where you need an outer waterproof cover, right down to their potty training products and accessories like baby wipes and reusable nappy bags..
Bum genius nappies all come in snap fits, and most are one size so no need to keep buying large sizes each time your baby grows. They have discontinued hook and loop (velcro) on their nappies as it is just not as durable as snaps.
Our favourite nappy is the bumGenius freetime, simplicity at it's best. It is super quick drying, just a air dry and it's done (or tumble dry) so no need for a large stash whilst you are waiting on your laundry to be done.
Disposable nappies take 500 years to decompose, we need to change our ways and reduce the waste we are producing and Cotton Babies have made this so much easier with their genius baby products which are super simple to use and wash, and they work!
