Re: Bumgenius vs. Bumkins

I have both and like them for different reasons. I have a super light soaker, so the bumkins have never leaked on DD so they are cute for around the house with their little prints. The BG are her night time diaper and I put them on her if we are going to be doing a lot of running around. I ironed on a few little patches on them so they are cute, too. I can't wait until its warmer here so she can show them off more, lol.

Re: Bumgenius vs. Bumkins

I haven't tried a BG AIO but I used Bumkins on my older 2 with no problems. I didn't find them to be bulky at all and never had leaking problems.

Re: Bumgenius vs. Bumkins

the snaps on the front of BG always dug into my ds' legs

we like the bumkins though, no leaks and a good trim fit for my ds. we have 3 that are dh's stash for ds

we also prefer to use dipes without a stay dry lining since we are nearing PLing

Re: Bumgenius vs. Bumkins

I love the fit of BG's but I don't like the AIO, it just doesn't seem to get dry/clean. The Bumkins do have a soaker only sewn to the other sides so it washes up better but I HATE the fit. Bumkins are stiff and bulky, I think they sell b/c they have cute prints.

Re: Bumgenius vs. Bumkins

I LOVED my Bumkins. At least they held up better over time. And for the absorbancy, i just laid a preemie prefold under the flap, and my DD was a heavy soaker. When she got bigger into the toddler sizes i used an infant prefold. This was the ONLY AIO we usd that DIDNT leak.

I voted fr BG's even though I've never tried them at all. I have tried bumpkins and can't see how it can get any worse
