Do you love fitteds, prefolds, or flat diapers? There are tons of reasons to chose these types of diapers, but most mamas need covers, especially for night. The options run from PUL to breathable wool and fleece. Love cute fluff? Are you on a budget? Then read on!
Heather Hofmann is a super-mom of five kiddos who started cloth diapering her youngest child in order to save money and eventually started to make her own to save even more. Friends started asking for them, and she has expanded into a full-fledged business. She now makes adorable fleece and wool diaper covers out of her home. She has even started making trainers. I received a fleece cover for this review, but the opinions are strictly my own.
As a mom who got into business to save money, she understands pinching pennies, and so makes her covers very affordable. Bum E Kins covers run from $7-$14 depending on size. Trainers and wool are $12-16. She has a large variety of sizes (S-XXL), but if your baby doesn’t fit any of those (mine doesn’t), Heather will happily make a custom size for no additional cost.
So do low-cost fleece covers work? You bet!! Because you can order custom sizes, they fit perfectly, eliminating gaps. Anna is wearing a custom medium. She is eight months old.
The craftsmanship on these covers is excellent. Heather finishes these seams like the pro she is. Even my mom was impressed. She often asks why Anna isn’t wearing her “cute cover”! I have to wash it occasionally, Mom!
Prints: Bum E Kins comes in several adorable fleece prints, or you can send your own. I mean how cute is this polar bear?? You can check out more prints here.
The night time test: Anna wears fitteds most nights, so we have to use covers. Did I mention she sleeps with us? Leaks are not an option. Heather sews and extra fleece layer into the wet zone for even more protection. We all woke up dry! I’m not a fan of PUL covers at night. I want my baby’s bum to breathe. We have used lots of wool, but wool can be spendy. Which reminds me, I need to try some Bum E Kins wool stat!
Bum E Kins are well-made, customizable, affordable, breathable, lightweight, and adorable! You can’t go wrong!
