Bummas Review & Giveaway



We're a cloth diapering family, here in the Giveaways for Mom household. And we love it! We love ALL the benefits of cloth diapers (environmental, budget, & health.)

Did you know that it takes 500 years for ONE disposable diaper to decompose in a landfill?? That means, the very first disposable diaper EVER used is STILL sitting in our environment. Pretty gross, huh?

Did you know that it can cost $1000 a year to diaper your baby with disposable diapers?? $1000 a year for something you're going to be throwing away! We spent $150 on our entire, lifetime supply of diapers. Much more economical!

Did you know sodium polyacrylate, the clear gel-like substance you often find on your baby's genitals after a diaper change, gives disposable diapers their super absorbant characteristic. Its use in tampons was banned in 1985 because of its link to Toxic Shock Syndrome. And most recently Tributylin was found in disposable diapers. TBT is ranked by the World Health Organization as one of the most toxic substances in use in consumer products in the world today. It is completely insane that this is what we put on our baby's skin!

After we started cloth diapering, the next logical step was switching to cloth wipes. If you use disposable diapers & disposable wipes to clean off your baby's bum, you just wrap up the wipe with the dipe when you throw it away. But if you're using disposable wipes with cloth diapers, you have to separate the wipe from the diaper & throw it away. That extra step can really be a pain.

We've tried another brand of cloth wipes. They were flannel, which made them super soft, but I noticed they required several wipes to get the job done.

Which is why I was so excited to try out the Bummas wipes!

  • Bummas are 100% cotton.
  • Bummas won't pill, shrink, or fade. (Awesome, since I love the colors so much!)
  • Bummas are durable, to stand up to many uses & washings.
  • Bummas are made in the USA!
These wipes work great. Since they are cotton, they're a little tougher than the flannel wipes, so they get the job done while using less wipes, yet are still soft enough for my baby's sensitive skin. The true test came for the first dirty diaper change. I was super happy when I only had to use one Bummas wipe instead of three or four, like I do with the flannel wipes. Less laundry!
