Soggy Diaper Day
December 4, 2008 12:35 pm | by

Every once in a while there comes a day when you just can’t get a moment to change a diaper. This morning was like that for me. Lily woke up around 6:45 and I changed her into a new bumGenius and put her jammies back on. A few moments later my 11 year old came up to me and pulled up his shirt, revealing a lovely speckled rash. Hmm… that is a trip to the doctor for sure. I already was keeping my six year old home, she needed a chance to sleep in because she had been up coughing

November 14, 2008 7:12 pm | by

The Mother & Baby Awards are organized by Mother & Baby, a large European parenting magazine. We’ve known for several months that several bumGenius products were being considered for the Mother & Baby Awards. The Reusable Diaper category is rather hotly contested in Europe so we’ve been awaiting the results with some nervous anticipation! We were honored to hear today that the bumGenius All-In-One was awarded Best Reusable Nappy. In a category where a gold, silver and bronze award are given, the bumGenius One-Size Cloth Diaper took second place with a Silver medal! Below is the press release as written

Mommy Cereal
November 5, 2008 11:49 am | by

One of my sons cannot eat foods that contain any form of corn, so we buy our cereal at Trader Joe’s on our way home from church every other weekend. The cheaper cereals sold there are made without corn syrup and tend to be priced the same as the cheap box cereals sold in our local grocery stores. Last weekend we ran out of cereal. I am six months pregnant with our third child and, for some reason, I really wanted cereal. The grocery stores close by don’t sell cereal that is safe for Andrew. Trader Joes is a 30

Poo: To Spray or Not To Spray
October 29, 2008 3:19 pm | by

***Update***The wee wiggler finally filled her diaper this morning! I tried out the diaper spraying bottle idea with much enthusiasm! I’m not so sure how I feel about it. It wasn’t a raging success, that’s for sure. I really couldn’t get it to squirt with enough pressure to do a good job of cleaning off the mess. There was alot of brownish splatter left all over the toilet, yuck. I sure don’t want to have to scrub the toilet every time I change a dirty diaper. So, I’ll hang in there and try my idea a few more times…but it

Saving money for Christmas with cloth diapers
October 25, 2008 1:26 pm | by

Over the last year, we’ve seen our family’s expenses rising. Milk is nearly $4 a gallon. Cheese is crazy expensive. Even my farmer’s market has raised prices on fruits and vegetables. And we don’t even have to talk about gas prices, right? So, let’s talk about how much we can spend on diapers. A newborn can go through as many as 12 diapers per day… if you do the math on the cost of disposable diapers at, it works out to around .17 – .25 per diaper or as much as $3 per day or $90 per month. In

Cloth Diapers and International Travel
October 13, 2008 1:08 pm | by

Last month my 8 month old daughter, Marguerite and I traveled to Europe and Africa together. Ordinarily we use cloth diapers for financial and environmental reasons and I had a hard time deciding whether to use cloth diapers or disposable during our travels. I went back and forth for weeks before our trip. There were so many things to consider…it just wasn’t and easy decision for me. I wanted to use cloth because my daughter was exclusively breastfed at the time, which meant that her stools were watery and she was almost guaranteed to have a “blow out” if she

Disposable Diapers are Hot
September 2, 2008 3:30 pm | by

We are in the process of moving from one house to another and the situation has been difficult at best and brain-frying at worst. In the midst of all this I have had Lily is disposable diapers after not using any disposables all Summer. It should make for one less thing to worry about, right? I had forgotten how hot they are! Every time I take one off of Lily it is stuck to her lower back with sweat. Even in the night and when she is in the air conditioning the whole time she wears it, she is still

How Often?
August 29, 2008 10:45 pm | by

How often do you need to change your baby’s cloth diaper? Well isn’t that the question of the century? I think the best answer you can get it just depends.It depends on baby’s age, on how, what and how often they are eating. I depends on how they are sleeping and the condition of their skin. You can see that the answer to this question is one that every family has to work out for themselves. If your baby is soaking through his clothes, change him more often. If your baby isn’t even wet yet, wait a while. That doesn’t

The Wrestling Match
August 23, 2008 10:17 am | by

About the time baby learns how to flip from back to front, the trouble begins. Babies like to practice their skill and when do you want them on their backs more than during a diaper change? Overnight diaper changes go from being a pleasant time to talk and play to an all-out battle with a wet cat or a fish out of water. When they learn how to crawl it gets even worse. Now, not only can they turn over, but they have the potential to actually escape as well. Fun times! This is about the time my diaper changes
