Are BumGenius worth it?

I am pg with #2 and thinking about getting some BumGenius dipes. I can def use more mediums, and possibly a few more larges so the one size aspect is good, IMO. What do you all think?

Re: Are BumGenius worth it?

I love mine! I got one new in the mail last week and just snagged 4 more from a momma on here. We are expecting # 2 in october and I am getting all BG's so that I can use them with both of my ds's.

Re: Are BumGenius worth it?

Most definately worth it! I have 5 total and would use them all the time, but my son gets a rash if we use them too much in one day. I think he's a bit sensative to suedecloth. They're the only thing I trust at night and they're also my out and about diapers. I NEVER have leaks and I can customize the fit to accomodate different insert combos. I wish they were made with fleece so we could use them more!

I can't decide. I love the look of it on my son, I love the fit, I love that it works well, I just HATE stuffing it! It is really difficult for me. It's so hard that I won't use the dipes. I pulled them out today, thinking about selling them, but decided to try them on him and they are so beautiful. It makes me want to buy more. Actually, it makes me want to rip my hair out, then buy some more.

We have one and I just dont really feel the love for it. Its ok, but I usually grab for it last. I prefer the FB over the BG personally. But I know lots of people like them.

FWIW - I much much much much prefer Mommy's Touch. the BG velcro is a little "snaggy" and it's definitely NOT holding up as well in the wash as the Mommy's Touch. I always reach for my bG last. I don't hate it, but it's my least fav.

Re: Are BumGenius worth it?

I think so, especially if you're going to get to use it from the beginning. You'll want a smaller insert than the one that comes with it for newborn-hood, like a Little Weeds hemp insert, but I do think they're worth it.

Re: Are BumGenius worth it?

i love love love mine! half of our stash is BG and i can't say enough good things about them. i will say it did take a little getting used to on stuffing them. i'll admit i thought about returning them in the beginning, but be sure and give them a chance. they are extremely versatile as far as inserts go, at nite i use them with two microterry or with my bigger weeds and i never have a leak. just wishing i had more white, i want to dye some so bad!!

Re: Are BumGenius worth it?

I have one and like it, but not as much as my SEZ pocket. BGs are a little difficult to stuff, but once you get used to it, not too bad. I also think the suedecloth is not my fav...I prefer fleece.

HTH!
