I have heard so much about the BumGenius diapers so getting the opportunity to review one from Simple Wonders Diapers was great. This diaper definitely exceeded what I had expected from a Velcro diaper. So far this is the closest I've come to using a cloth diaper that's very similar to a disposable.
Right now I'm using this diaper on the medium setting and it doesn't seem to be bulking up all that much and fits well. The stretch tabs are very convenient and even though I'm not thrilled with how they tab down for laundry use (because that's next to your babies skin during wear) it hasn't caused a problem in this house. The tabs actually stay completely down and we've had no curling so far and these seem to be very strong and smaller that my daughter has a harder time getting it off than other velcro diapers. The covered insert opening is a nice feature but doesn't stay completely flat and ends up needing to be readjusted before your finished putting in on your child. I love how the top (where the velcro sticks) is nice and wide, to easily fit around your child's waist, this helps with fit and keeps the diaper where you want it. This also is a trim diaper and doesn't look that bulky if used with the inserts. Once again I'm not a big fan of the microterry fiber inserts, they hold the liquid and give you a trim fit, but I'm more of a prefold girl myself. This diaper does come with an infant inserts as well though for a trim look as an infant and then you can use this as a second insert with the bigger one for more absorbency as the child gets older. I haven't had one leak and have actually been using this at night with a prefold for reviewing, working great. It's pretty similar to most pocket diapers. So far from my use this is a highly recommendable diaper. Be sure to check out the nine available colors as well! Read more about this diaper here.
