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.

Why can't they just be friends?

Why can't my kids just be friends?  I must ask myself this question hundreds of times during the week. 

I thought that having kids relatively close together was going to be great.  They'd have a playmate and an automatic friend.  However, the truth is that - most of the time - they don't get along.  It's not that they're enemies...it's that they drive each other crazy. 

They each want the other one to do what they want to do.  Then, when the other one does what they want, they get mad at them because they wanted to do it themselves.

They don't want to share their toys.  Then, they play together only to then get mad and purposefully break the other sibling's toys.

They want to get the other one in trouble so that they look like the "good" child and get more rewards.  Then they get upset that the other sibling got them in trouble when they *tattled* on them.

At mealtimes, they want to sit where the other one is sitting.  They want the cup the ot…

Portland's Rose Summit

I have a great passion for working with women to become stronger leaders who are making differences in their communities.  It is with this in mind that I share with you an amazing opportunity for Portland women: the Junior League of Portland's inaugural Women's Empowerment & Leadership Summit.
