My switch began when I won a couple wipes off of twitter, but I still wasn't sure what I should be looking for in a wipe- size or fabric. When Bummas agreed to sponsor a review though, I was very excited! I'd heard some great things about their wipes & I couldn't wait to try them for myself.
I received the Wild Ones set. This particular set is one of each color, which is cool, cause they're very bright & cheery! I try to mix up B's stuff a lot by including greens, yellows & oranges, & these wipes mix those in perfectly! Plus, if we have a girl someday, I'll already have a couple pink wipes ... & at this point, with B, who cares if I use pink wipes!
So, here's what Bummas says about their wipes:
The creation of Bummas came about when we had our first baby boy. When your first arrives, you are given all kinds of advice:
"Use the wet commercial wipes, don’t use the wet commercial wipes, use gauze; use whatever is handy to block the pee; use another diaper to block the pee; don’t use that, use this; use powder to dry them off, don’t use powder-it contains talc and studies have linked talc to cancer.”
The one thing that was never mentioned was how to dry our little guy’s “stuff” off after the clean up. Our baby’s bum was just way too wet to put a diaper back on--and blowing down there until you’re blue in the face just wasn’t working. Thus Bummas were born. A soft absorbent, luxurious baby cloth to soak up all the wetness.
Eliminates the use of talcum powder. 100% Cotton - Woven Velour Terry Cloth milled in the USA. Variety of color combinations for nursery themes. Handy 5” x 7” size. Won’t pill, shrink, or fade. Durable. Just throw them in the wash and use again. They will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond! Made in the USA
I love, love, love that these are made in the USA. I think they're a great size- not too big, but big enough that I rarely use more than one per diaper change. One side is very soft & the other is a bit 'rougher' ... (well, not actually rough, but just enough to get everything cleaned up nicely). I totally agree that these can be used even after diapering - as face cloths, or even, once your kiddos are grown up- repurposed for cleaning!
I toss mine in the diaper pail along with diapers & wash them together ... easy peasy! As far as cloth wiping being harder, I was crazy! I repurposed my Peri bottle from the hospital, filled it with water & sometimes, a little soap bit, & just squirt some out on to the Bummas to clean B off. So Easy! Here's a picture for how I store them ... don't you just love how bright they are?!
