Three absorbency inserts (retail $9.95 for a pack of three)…
and a wet bag (retail $9.95, list price $10.95).
My first impression of the diapers were that they reminded me of Kushies diapers, and that they were huge! Here is one (bottom) compared to some other diapers I had in the laundry room:
The elastic isn’t very tight, so it didn’t get too much bigger when stretched:
Since the instructions said the diapers would shrink, I decided to wash and dry one three times to give it a fair shake. While I was doing that, I took a look at the wet bag.
It measures 13″ x 11″, has a drawstring toggle closure, and has simple construction.
It’s not enormous, but it held three of these big diapers just fine!
So after three washes (drying in the dryer between washes, to make it a little faster)…
It looked exactly the same! The blue diaper had been prepped, the other had not. I went ahead and tried it on my little guy anyway.
It was way too big! With that leg gap, I didn’t dare leave it on him, so I took it off. While I’d certainly use Bumkins (in a smaller size) if that were my only option other than disposables, I’m a little shocked by the price. They do come in cute prints, but they cost as much as Bumgenius pocket diapers, even as much as the Bumgenius Organic AIO if you go based on list price! I can think of at least a half-dozen diapers that have more bells and whistles, for the same cost or less. I was truly surprised when I looked at their site and saw the price, I thought for sure they would be around $10 each.
I don’t want to sound ungrateful, I am very thankful to Knocked up and Nursing for the giveaway, especially getting it to me so quickly, even though she had just had a baby! That said, I think I will be donating these to The Cloth Diaper Foundation, so another family with a bigger baby can pad their stash!
