Cotton Babies

June 22, 2010
The last couple of years has been a wild ride for Cotton Babies and the brands we created. We started out on our product venture with a tiny shipment of diapers that sold out within hours on December 21st, 2005. Since that date, the production lines haven’t stopped and our most popular brand, bumGenius, has gone on to be sold all over the world, winning awards and accolades from media nearly everywhere it goes.

In keeping with our long standing tradition of excellence, we have been working on something new for quite some time. I’m not very good at keeping secrets, so news has gotten out here and there about what might be new. Speculation from you and your friends has been quite literally all over the map about what the new product might be. Up until today, we weren’t 100% sure of when we could tell you, but finally, we have a date. I am excited to announce that a new bumGenius product will be born on June 29th!

We’re confident that you will be just as excited about this new product as we are. So, immediately following my announcement, we will open up to preorders. We begin actually shipping orders on July 14th.

Something fun and new is coming. But that usually means that we have to say goodbye to something else. So, it is with slightly heavy hearts that we have to announce that we have discontinued our highly acclaimed bumGenius 3.0 One-Size Cloth Diapers. If you’re in the midst of building your stash, we still have a limited inventory available at the awesome Buy 5, Get 1 Free deal (while supplies & coupons last). Shop now or forever hold your peace! 🙂

We’ll email you soon with details of when and where the new product announcement will be made…. have a great Tuesday everyone!

Kindest Regards,

Jenn, Owner

I got this email, just as I was working on a giveaway for a few of my favorite things, including Bumgenius 3.0’s.  I am very worried, to be honest.  It may sound crazy but OMG!  Don’t tell me something is discontinued and then make me wait a week to find out about the new product!!
Here’s what I’m hoping for: a 4th snap setting for smaller babies, a snap closure option, more colors and prints, a hemp insert/microfiber that doesn’t end up reeking and better/more durable velcro closures/laundry tabs.
I’m taking some deep breaths, I didn’t know I would get this worked up over a diaper.  I’m not going to include the BG in my “favorite things” giveaway, since I might have difficulty finding one in stock.  However, definitely count on a review and giveaway for the new Bumgenius in July, as long as it looks good when I find out what exactly it is next week!

    >I am definitely voting for snaps! I have all my bG's converted anyway, but I'd love for them to already come with them! 🙂 I look forward to seeing the new product!!! 😀

    >Why even say anything if you're going to keep us waiting for another week? My whole stash is CottonBabies products between Flip and bG's, and I was planning on adding OS 3.0's after the sized AIO's she's in get outgrown. Ugh 🙁

    >I'm just worried. They didn't say "new Bumgenius 4.0 is coming, everything you love about 3.0 only better." They said they're saying goodbye and something new will be released. What if I don't like it? Auuggghhhh!

    >oh no! I didn't even get this email… sadness! I love my BG's too and was slowly building my stash (as they can be a bit pricey)… I might have to cough up the dough now though! Maybe the new thing will be better? Hope so!

    >OMG that is INSANE! I Love my BGs. Okay I'm crying now.I can't wait to see what is going to be released though.
