Great New Products for Mom & Baby at #ABCKids15

I’ve been home from ABC for 3 weeks and I still haven’t shared all my photos with you! Check out my cloth diapers at the ABC Kids Expo, babywearing products at ABC and Cottonbabies at ABC posts if you haven’t already, then read on for tons of mom & baby items!

This was my first time seeing the 4Moms Mamaroo and Rockaroo in person so I took a video for you. I wish these had been around when I had my babies!

The mamaroo and rockaroo from @4moms_hq are amazing! I wish I'd had one for my kids! #abckids15

Cloth Diapers at #ABCKids15

Post contains affiliate links. I spent a lot of my time at the 2015 ABC Kids Expo in cloth diaper booths because, well..obviously. I’ve already shared the new Bumgenius/Cottonbabies products with you but there is so much more. Some products aren’t available yet so I’m trying to make sense of my chicken scratch notes. Accuracy not guaranteed. 😉

The Applecheeks booth was a fun place to get a glitter tattoo and I managed to time my Instagram video perfectly to capture their accessory reveal!

I photographed these products with permission at the ABC Expo. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and I paid my own way to the show. All opinions are my own. In addition to cloth diapers and cloth diaper accessories, there were lots of great products for mom & baby at the ABC Kids Expo.

Bumkins Dr. Seuss AIO Cloth Diaper Bundle Review


Bumkins Dr. Seuss Cloth Diaper Bundle

I was lucky and won a Bumkins Dr. Seuss Cloth Diaper Bundle in size large from Knocked up and Nursing!
The bundle came with three AIO Diapers, which retail for $17.95 each (list price $24.95.)

3 Bumkins AIO Cloth Diapers

Three absorbency inserts (retail $9.95 for a pack of three)…

3 doublers

and a wet bag (retail $9.95, list price $10.95).

Bumkins Cloth Diaper Wet Bag

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:

Bumkins Large vs One Size Cloth Diapers

They are very wide, and also had a fairly high rise.  Keep in mind that my measurements aren’t an exact science.  I noticed that I didn’t have it folded exactly in half in the second picture here:

The elastic isn’t very tight, so it didn’t get too much bigger when stretched:

The laundry tab is just a single flap against the right closure tab.  I assume you are to overlap the other tab for laundering.

As I said, I received the size large, which is estimated to fit 22-32 pounds, according to their size chart.  My son was 20 pounds 6 weeks ago at his 18-month checkup, so he’s definitely close to the low end of the weight range.  They also have small (6-12 lbs), medium (12-22 lbs), x-large (32-42 lbs) and youth (42+ lbs).  They have some really cute prints, but the youth size comes in white only.
Like the Kushies, the diaper is pretty simple.  The outer feels like windbreaker material (lead safe, PVC, phthlate and vinyl free) and it has 6 layers of cotton flannel (sewn in an “airflow panel” for faster drying) and simple leg elastic.  The rear elastic is closer to the sides of the diaper.  There isn’t any along the middle of the back.

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)…

after prepping bumkins aio

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.

leg gap

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!
