Now that my little princess is 4.1 kg (sigh, she’s just reaching her brother’s birthweight at 2 months!), I decided to take out my stash of cloth diapers.
Also, I noticed a bit of nappy rash today Since she poos more frequently now especially after a breastfeeding session, I wonder if that’s the reason?
Bumwear Petite One-Size Cloth Diaper
Anyway, I stopped the disposables today, applied some Drapolene and started her on cloth. I’d received this newborn-sized pocket diaper from Bumwear for review and love the petite size .
This cloth diaper is smaller and trimmer than the earlier Bumwear cloth diapers I got for my boy (read my review here).
If you are new to cloth diapering, you need to be aware that cloth diapers become more and more absorbent after more than 3 washes. Unless stated, it’s really best that you pre-wash your cloth diapers a few times with your regular laundry before you try them on your baby. Or you’ll be blessed by “hot pee”
For my “newborn”, the exact thing happened! Poor Grandma was propping her up one Sunday morning and suddenly felt a warm sensation on her pants. Oops…the little girl wee-ed on her O_O
Today, I tried the Bumwear cloth diaper again as a diaper cover (minus the microfibre soaker) with the traditional white square or kain lampin.
We experienced no leaks probably because the white square fills up the gaping hole in the leg casing.
The Bumwear newborn or petite-sized pocket diaper comes with a smaller version of the standard, rectangular microfibre insert.
Personally, I don’t like snaps but since my baby girl’s not moving around that much YET, the snaps are easy to use and fit her nicely.
3 rows of snaps are on this cloth diaper and she’s currently on the middle row. You can fold down the top of the cloth diaper if your newborn baby’s umbilical cord stump hasn’t fallen off yet.
I am a huge fan of Bumwear’s one-size cloth diapers because my son just loves the super soft microfleece.
When I examined the inside of this newborn / petite cloth diaper, I am pleased to see a new version of inner microfleece – it’s really plush, feels more “cotton-y” and luxuriously soft to the touch! I can’t stop touching it
Previously, semi-solid poo was hard to rinse off Bumwear’s microfleece inner – I don’t really want to want to find out if this new, super-soft and white microfleece will work better. Sorry, I’m just too tired…
Will try and report back later Have you tested the new Bumwear petite with a newborn’s runny poo?
