Costco has always been one of my favorite places to shop, now I love it even more. Now available online and in-store (not sure about all stores or selection) are Bumkins All-In-Ones, Bumkins Bamboo fitteds and Bumkins Covers.
Bumkins All-In-One Diaper Bundle 6-pack with 6 Diaper Inserts: Bumkins All In Ones are not a top performing All-In-One. However, I have read rave after rave from moms who have used this successful with their children. The key is frequent changes (as should be the norm anyways) and the use of a doubler. Bumkins All-In-Ones work super on a newborn/small baby. If you are starting out cloth diapering I would definately recommend this package! At $89.99 for the bundle, that comes out to $15.00 per diaper/insert! That is almost unbeatable for an All-In-One. (RETAILS FOR $109.95 AT BUMKINS)
Bumkins Bamboo Fitted Diaper Bundle: 6 diapers and 6 boosters. $69.99. That is an amazing deal for bamboo diapers. I used Motherease One Size and Kissaluvs with Paisley as a newborn and I was satisfied with the performance. Bamboo is more absorbent than cotton so I expect at least the same if not a slightly better performance from the Bumkins bamboo. When purchasing these do not expect the absorbency to challenge a Baby Beehind or Goodmama. (RETAILS FOR $99.95 AT BUMKINS)
Bumkins Diaper Cover 4-pack Bundle with Dirty Duds Bag: Available in beautiful girl or boy prints or dr. seuss. $48.99. *jaw-drop* This is a tremendous savings over buying these same pieces from Bumkins or other retailers. There have been some complaints about the material being more prone to wicking but overall the positives out do the negatives. Bumkins run true to size. Moms have successfully used a gDiaper insert inside the Bumkins covers as well. If you are using prefolds, I suggest pinning or snappi-ing the prefold on instead of laying the prefold in the cover. Leaking seems to be more of an issue when just laying it in there. (RETAILS FOR $89.95 AT BUMKINS)
Making any cloth diapers this mainstream is a VERY GOOD thing! I am so excited that something other than Gerber is available for the general shopping public.
I can’t wait for my next trip to Costco just to actually see them…and perhaps pick me up some Bumkins bamboo fitteds. Of course I’ll have to convince my husband that it is a necessary purchase to send the message to Costco that cloth diapers are a wise product ;)
