New bumGenius Elemental Review October 29 2016 7 Comments

We hope you are enjoying fall in your neck of the woods and gearing up for all the fall festivities.
Here at The Natural Baby we are smitten over the new bumGenius Elemental today and have finally had a chance to prep and use the new 3.0 Elemental on our still-in-diapers baby (aka toddler who is about 22 months old).

Here is a basic introduction to the New bumGenius Elemental for those who may have never tried it before:

- All in One cloth diaper (super easy to use and wash)
- One Size design (fits from about 8 lbs to 35+ lbs)
- all Oeko-Tex certified organic cotton inside
- durable and water resistant polyester PUL outer
- gentle proprietary elastic special made for bumGenius cloth diapers 
- easier access built into design, to elastics when change is necessary
- less PUL touching baby's delicate skin
- increased absorbency (same number of layers of fabric total (6) but a slightly larger imprint/footprint as compared to 2.0)
- durable plastic snaps sure to last the test of time

Our personal experience with the New 3.0 design Elemental and design tweaks:
- increased absorbency (compared to 2.0)
- improved fit with new elastics
- gentler fit around legs with hidden seam

Our 2.0 Elementals have had so much love... and by love, I mean abuse. Literally.
My current Elementals in our rotation are so well loved they were beginning to show some serious signs of wear. They still perform well enough to stay in our minimalist cloth diaper stash (about 30 diapers total and about 40% of that is of bumGenius Elementals (2.0 version)).

The exposed PUL on our 2.0s show definite signs of wear, since I would often find the diaper had flipped inside out in the wash, and PUL was on the outside and cotton would flip to the "inside". This created a good bit of friction directly on the PUL.
My 1.0 version Elemental had MAJOR edge-wear from the cotton directly on the seam and from the sewn insert directly on the cotton liner so that wasn't good either. 

My projections from the newest 3.0 design is that is will wear down much slower. I can imagine that this diaper will be less likely to flip around in the wash and hence show less direct wear on the elastics and PUL. 

Top 3 reasons to try the NEW bumGenius Elemental:
1. increased longevity
2. improved absorbency (surface area and configuration)
3. improved fit (elastics, casing, & cotton inner)

Meet Patch! Newest Limited Edition Print from Cotton Babies! May 07 2015

Meet Patch!

Take Flight with Patch : The latest release from Cotton Babies!

Just like a butterfly, the newest Genius Series print, Patch, is intricate and ethereal. With a monochromatic color scheme, filled with different shades of Dazzle, Patch resembles a monarch's wings through a kaleidoscopic design. Influenced by the work of American Entomologist, Edith Patch, this graceful, captivating motif will take your little one to new heights. 

When she was a child, Edith Patch won a contest for an essay on monarch butterflies. Passionate about bugs and ecology, Patch tried to get a job in entomology, but was repeatedly rejected because she was a woman. Through persistence and dedication, she was later hired by Charles Woods of the University of Maine, where she earned her master's degree, later completing her Ph.D. at Cornell University. In 1930, Patch was elected the first woman president of the Entomological Society of America, a time when few women were in the field. Throughout her long, devoted career, she never lost focus of her love for science and the natural world, which now lands her a spot in our Hall of Genius.

To Bleach or not to Bleach? June 29 2013

The lurking question... To bleach or not to bleach?

My family is always on the go and we have come to stick with using bumGenius Freetime One-Size All-In-One diapers for reasons of simplicity between multiple care providers who even like to help with laundry from time to time. (They had difficulty and much anxiety about matching up pocket diapers and inserts)
Up until now we have stripped diapers...
