A woman asked on a forum recently, “The Bummis Dimple Diaper. I’m intrigued, but scared by the price. Worth it?” While every budget is different, I can definitely tell you that a great overnight solution is priceless. When it’s a soft, trim overnight solution that is also absorbent, it can save you on extra inserts and bulky overnight solutions in the long run.
In my Bummis Dimple Diaper Review, I’ll discuss why I see it as a great overnight solution, but at $31.95, probably not a budget-conscious day time solution for most babies.
A Trim, Absorbent Night Time Solution
- Quality – This Made in Canada cloth diaper is made with quality components from the US and Canada. Why does this matter? As a consumer, we are purchasing a high quality product and helping to provide jobs in North America. We’re also supporting a company that pays their workers a fair wage – meaning they can purchase the products they help manufacture.
- Comfortable – Soft, organic cotton interior feels great against baby’s skin. There is even a layer of cotton between baby’s belly and the snaps, important as baby begins to roll on her belly.
- Superior Fit – This diaper uses a similar pattern to the Simply Lite. Elastic in the back and sides create a snug, comfortable fit on different body types. The cotton provides a natural stretch and is simple to use with a single row of snaps.
- Trim and Absorbent – This can be an elusive combo in cloth diapering. The Dimple Diaper has an absorbent core of 100% natural fibers and comes with a removable, double-sided booster made of stay-dry polyester on one side and organic cotton on the other. When using this one-sized fitted on the smaller size, the booster does need to be folded in the front or the back, adding a bit of bulk. You certainly need the booster to maximize absorbency, but you could use it as a super trim daytime diaper without the fitted (although the price might be a bit prohibitive).
- You Just Need Three – If you wash cloth diapers every day like me and your baby makes it through the majority of the night in one diaper, then three of this higher-priced diaper should work for your stash. This means you’ll always have one available at night.
There is something refreshing about natural cotton look of the Bummis Dimple Diaper. If you love bold colors and patterns like I do, however, it’s a bit plain. Keep in mind, though, that a fitted isn’t usually the star of the show and you can cover it up with a fun waterproof cover that suits your style.
The Dimple Diaper is one-sized, but comes with 2 snap down rise settings relatively close together. I tried the Dimple Diaper on a small baby between 2 and 4 months and he has quite a bit of room to grow. I believe that the settings look a bit different than the Bummis cover because of the side elastic. I will certainly update this review as baby grows.
While this diaper can be used during the day, the price makes this prohibitive for many budgets, especially because it requires the use of a cover. I’m reluctant to use it during the day because I want it available at night to keep my baby comfortable and dry.
