Bummis Super Brite

It's been seven long years since I started this blog as a place to look for cloth diaper reviews.  In that time, my family has grown to a party of five.  For a variety of reasons, we didn't do a lot of cloth diapering with our middle child, but now #3 is here and the cloth diapers have come back out!  With so many new options for cloth diapering, I thought I'd take a look back at my original reviews and update as needed.

So, let's start with the Bummis Super Brite!  I am still a big fan of this diaper cover.  Not only does it provide excellent coverage to minimize blowouts and leaks, but it is also easy to use and stylish in it's super brite colors and new designs in Cactus, Tampa and Circus.

However, there is one point to note.  My baby #3 is not a tiny baby as my previous two children were.  He likes to eat and his size shows it.  So, as we've re-begun using cloth diapers, I've noticed that they don't all fit like they did on his siblings.  The Bummis Super Brites run small compared to the small-sized covers from other brands.  At 12 lbs, he has reached what I consider to be the top range for the Small diaper covers (important to note that he has also outgrown - in output - the newborn-sized Clotheez prefolds we have underneath the covers).

The other thing to note is that, as I searched online to find the current pricing and other information on this diaper cover, I could not find anywhere that sold anything but newborn-sized Super Brites.  Thankfully, I still have all of my original covers in small and medium, but it's disappointing if Bummis has discontinued the larger sizes of this amazing cover.


ORIGINAL POST:
Coordination is important.  I am constantly trying to convince my husband that brown shoes do not go with black pants.  The same is true with my baby.  While she may not recognize the need for this skill yet, I continually try to implant it into her mind so that she'll be the fashion-forward child that I wasn't in the 80s.  With this in mind, Bummis Super Brite diaper covers offer a unique opportunity for teaching color coordination skills while preventing leaks and providing a high quality diapering option.  

They're called Super Brite for a reason...the diapers are SUPER BRITE!  They come in four different color designs (green, blue, pink, and orange) with multi-colored, dotted circle design.  White is also an option but, in my opinion, why go for white when you can have Baby stylin' without anything on?  This cover has leg gussets which, in my family, are proven in preventing leaks.  They also have Velcro that covers the entire front of the cover, allowing for a secure fit as Baby grows.  The cover is waterproof and thinner than some other covers - which can be felt when trying to squeeze Baby into some of those pants that say they're one size when, in reality, they aren't.

I'm also a big fan of the edging material.  Some diaper cover manufacturers seem to skimp on this aspect of the cover - causing a greater degree of leakage when you have those "shoot-up-the-back" moments that always seem to happen at the most inopportune time.  The edging on the Super Brites has never left me disappointed (or covered in you-know-what).

This cover is slightly more expensive than other diaper cover options, but it is tried and true.  At $12.25 each, you can still diaper Baby on an affordable budget.

If you give a mom a coffee cup

If you give a mom a coffee cup, she'll say "thank you" and immediately go to the coffee pot. 

At the coffee pot, she'll start the coffee and pour herself a cup...noticing the full cup of cold coffee that she poured herself yesterday.

She'll take the cold cup of coffee to the sink, dump it down the drain, and go to put it in the dishwasher.

She'll open the dishwasher and realize that it's full of clean dishes that need to be put away.

She'll put away all of the clean dishes and then will put in the dirty - now empty - cup of coffee from yesterday.

She'll notice that there are other dirty dishes in the sink that need to go into the dishwasher, so she'll put them all in the dishwasher.

She'll then realize that there may be other dirty dishes other places in the house and will go looking for them...finding them in bathrooms, on the coffee table, under beds, and in the sandbox outside.

While looking for dirty dishes, she'll notice that ther…

Where has the Golden Rule gone?

You would have to be living in a cave or some extremely remote location with no access to satellite or wireless reception in order to not hear or read about American politics and the upcoming elections.  It's everywhere...and it's an all out war.  Or, at least that's what it seems like to me.  I usually try not to say too much about politics because I was taught that talking about politics in polite conversation was rude and uncivil.  Today's state of social media and 24-hour news has proven to me that this lesson is, sadly, true. 

As a parent, I am trying to instill a sense of respect in my children.  Yet, how am I to do this in a world where everyone is out to get anyone who thinks, speaks, looks, or acts differently than they do?  No, this isn't always about politics.  But, let's face it, we've politicized everything.  There has been no subject left untouched in this year's political race.  There's no topic deemed to be out of bounds.  So, where …
