    I am using Econobums on my two year old at night time and its been nice because he prefers them to paper diapers, and of course is far more economical. Thanks!

  • Jennifer said...

    I have never used Econobums. I like the idea that it is good for someone new to cloth diapers because I am a total newbie!

    It would help me simplify my diaper routine.

  • Emily said...

    I think econobums would help me cloth diaper more effectively because they would allow me to reuse a cover multiple times.

    I’m looking for a good way to cloth diaper my newborn when he arrives. We have a stash of one size diapers that I think he’ll be too small for to start with.

  • Jennifer said...

    they work over some of the fitteds ive made and bought so they’d allow me to use those more often!

    I can use cd more efficiently with econbum bc they are covers and prefolds so there would be less diaper laundry =) always a win!!!

  • Jennifer said...

    I think econobum will help because laundry will be easier.

  • Joy said...

    Everyone should give a try to a simple, basic cloth diapering system. Either you’ll learn to love cloth or learn to love fancier systems, either way it leads to less disposable trash.

    Honestly? Just winning an Econobum Trial Kit would help us to cloth diaper more effectively. Our first child is due in November so we’re trying to build up our cloth diaper supply. Not only would this give us more cloth diapers to use, but it would give us another example of what’s out there to see what will work best for both of us and our son.

  • Mesha C. said...

    I love the simplicity of diaper covers and prefolds. It’s easy for anyone (grandparents included), this option cost the least, and is the most practical diaper because you can use the cover multiple times. It’s a winner!

  • Jenn Grandlienard said...

    I would love to use Econobum diapers! I’m pregnant and due in January, and my husband and I have been doing lots of research about different brands and types of cloth diapers. We are hoping to save money using cloth diapers, and Econobum sounds like a great brand with the sizing aid to enable you to use the same diapers through potty training!

  • Rachael K said...

    We are stoked to kick off cloth diapering our newborn with econobum covers. So cost effective for those early days!

    Econobum is a great intro to prefolds I’m still new to CDing so I like that it’s not intimidating,

  • Asha said...

    I love how economical Econobum is. Very easy to use.

  • Katie said...

    Econobum covers majorly reduce laundry, which is what sold my on flats and covers. πŸ™‚

  • Caroline Guthrie said...
    August 21, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    Using Econobum would remind me of the original reasons why we started to use cloth. To save money and be more eco friendly, but I got caught up in the rainbow hype! I usually use 4.0’s or FreeTimes but to use a cover and prefold would be more cost effective, being that I can reuse the cover cuts down on laundry and we have an HE machine, I can save even more money and water.
    Thanks CB for bringing me back down to earth πŸ™‚

  • Rebecca A said...

    Econobum definitely helps cloth diaper more effectively by saving on costs by keeping with the basics, and also by being a OS system so that you don’t have to buy multiple sizes as baby grows.

  • Lacey said...

    I have two econobum covers that I bought five years ago and still use. Great for my big babies and no leaks πŸ™‚ with another baby due soon, I could use a couple of new covers for my 16 month old ( and let the newbie use the elementals ) πŸ˜‰

  • Jeanie Payne said...

    My diapers have all been through two or more babies before my newest addition and so are getting very worn. I have a variety of styles and would really like to find one or two systems that will work well for us and get rid of everything else.

  • Carrie said...
    August 21, 2014 at 8:18 am

    Not only are Econobums an affordable option for cloth diapering, they are very versatile too! Besides just prefolds, my covers have been used over flats and fitteds as well!!! They are a great fit!

  • Andrea Merrill said...
    August 21, 2014 at 7:43 am

    I would like to try to Econobum, because we don’t have many diapers, and if these are less expensive or more basic, we could get more than we have..

  • Ashley MW said...
    August 21, 2014 at 7:32 am

    Covers & prefolds/flats are such a cost efficient way to diaper! I love that econobums are so affordable so that I can provide more for my family with the savings!
