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.

Leadership Mom: SWOT Analysis

In business, leaders often analyze our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats through a SWOT analysis.  So, if we are going to look at our role as moms as being the greatest leadership opportunity to us, let's start with analyzing ourselves and our kids.  Here's the SWOT I developed for my family:

As a doting mother, there are hundreds of strengths that I could put up here for my kids.  Their hugs, kisses, bedtime stories and prayers, the fact that they come to me when they're seeking healing from an injury (physical or emotional), the notes and drawings they make for me, their precious hearts when they try to help me or that they've learned how to use the Keurig to bring me coffee in the morning...I could go on and on.

Now, here's the part where we get honest with ourselves.  Yes, we love our kids and we love our family (or, hopefully, most of the time), but we are not perfect.  Nor should we be perfect.  As we analyze ourselves and our families, we hav…

Thoughts from a non-traditional student

It's the end of the school year for many of us.  My kids are thrilled about this and keep telling me that they're so excited to have the summer off...they don't yet realize that we'll have a new family chore chart and lessons on being a "contributor" to the family!

For me, the end of the school year is also exciting.  It is also the end of my first year back to school for a new degree in Cyber Operations, a degree that is almost the complete opposite of my other degree in Communication and Advertising.  It also was exciting to realize that you really can start learning something new at any age, no matter how long it's been since your last time in school.  With this in mind, I thought I'd do a recap of some thoughts I had during my nontraditional year.
Going back to school is scary.  There's new technology. Not every teacher uses a textbook. You're *often* older than the teachers. There's no easy way to balance school-work-family life. You&#…
