The only catch was that they asked a buyer to spend $25 on Bumgenius, Flip or Econobum products if you wanted Abby’s Lane to clip the coupon for you, rather than the $10 stated on the coupon. Not a big deal since they weren’t charging for the coupon (other sites were charging for the magazine/coupon, then crediting you a bit if you didn’t want the magazine) and shipping is always free at Abby’s lane. Basically, I got a lot more from them for just a couple bucks more than $10 in product, shipping and the coupon cost would have been from somewhere else. For the record, no, I don’t work for Abby’s Lane, just love them!
Anyhoo, my order came at the speed of light at usual.
The packaging had a sticker saying to wash the cover separately 6 times. I was a little confused, since I didn’t think this needed to be “prepped.” I called cottonbabies and it turns out that they had some issues with the covers running. So, I dutifully washed just the cover 6 times! You do have to hang the cover to dry.
The Flip cover has an easy snap closure.
The inside is PUL, easy to wipe clean during changes.
Same leg casings and outer too.
They make inserts in organic cotton and disposable too. The price per disposable insert seems similar to disposables, but instead of chemicals, fragrance and gel, they contain Non-woven bamboo viscose, Wood Pulp and SAP fillers, and starch based glue. They would be a nice compromise for road trips and such, since you could really just wipe out the covers and even hand wash them if they really needed it.
I prefer a stay dry liner, so I chose the stay dry insert, which has 3 layers of microfiber, and has stay dry suede on the side that touches baby’s bottom. Very soft.
The snap closure was very easy, and this seemed as trim as the Bumgenius 3.0.
We had no problems, no leaks. This was great!
I’d like to get one more cover and a few more inserts. I think this would be excellent for being out and about. One extra cover and a few extra inserts would take up a lot less space than several pocket diapers for sure!
