Softbums NEW OMNI Diaper Review & Giveaway!



I’m feeling very reporter-ish right now. Currently, I’m camping at Garner State Park in south Texas but I *have* to report something to you!

Any typos must be ignored because I am writing this on the phone.

There’s a huge launch going in today over at Softbums cloth diapers. Already I’m a huge fan of Softbums because of their amazing toggle elastic adjuster in the legs.

The mom behind the business is about as sweet and dedicated as they come.

I’ll get to the point since one of my normal posts would take me 5 years to type on this.


The most customized fit you’ll get with a one-sized diaper.

The Velcro gives you a snug waist fit but is easily undone by toddlers.


After one prep (which is not fully prepped!) I began using the system. I first used the bamboo pod. I left ut in Sterling for 3 hours. The pod was wet but the shell dry.

I then got him ready for bed by adding the fleece-topped microfiber pod with a doubler (newborn) pod.

After 14 hours we had no leaks, Sterling was dry and the shell wasn’t soaked.


Getting the correct fit with the toggle isn’t difficult but it does take some time. Once you get it where you want it though you won’t have to mess with it until baby requires it.

The toggle can be accessed through the front small slit and through the wide pocket at the back.

Changing out the pods is easy. Just unsnap and snap in a new one. If the shell gets damp you can lay it out to dry for next change.


- Stuff it! Snap it! Cover it!
– The first Muti-Purpose Pocket Ever!  It’s a Pocket Diaper AND an All-In-2
AND a Cover!
– Huge pocket opening is easy to stuff
Larger size means it fits even BIGGER toddlers up to 40 lbs, yet still
fits a tiny Newborn with Slide²Size

– Compatible with the same Pods as the Echo, as well as almost any other
diaper insert!
– Choice of DryTouch or Organic
– Use as an all-in-2 for the most economical diapering system available!
– Use as a pocket for a super absorbent and bulletproof diaper so easy your
daycare can use it!
– Use as a cover over flats, prefolds or nearly anything else you already
have for a worry-free night!

Softbums was versatile before now you have yet another option. I’ve always recommended Softbums and I continue to stand behind that!

    From what i can see on your review above.. i’m loving how it’s super versatile and i would love to try it on my HEAVY wetting 4 year old.. she’s potty trained during the day, but has seriously wet nights. wonder if this could solve the problem!

    I would love to try these diapers!!! I love that they’re a one size fit that looks like it would really work that way. And I love the green color. I’ve got a little one on the way and it would be awesome to launch with these. Crossing my fingers!

  9. Jessica T Says:

    I’m trying to transition from disposable diapers to cloth diapers for my son. I tried prefolds and covers when he was first born but I had to change his outfit, and often his sheets, with nearly every diaper change. I’ve recently been looking into the cloth diapers again and want something like the OMNI diaper with extra pods, a pocket, that’s an (AIO or) AI2. I’m super excited about this diaper now! Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. Lisa Says:

    4. What I love most is that it is a one-size diaper that will actually fit a newborn and is still large enough to fit a toddler.

  17. Beth Says:

    Hi, I would love to win the diapers(s)! I have a 6 week old and a 18 month old, also a 3 year-old that needs a diaper at night, so a one size, versatile diaper would be helpful in our house! Thank you for such a neat opportunity!

  18. Kristi Potts Says:

    Amazing!! The versitily of this diaper looks awesome, and I can’t wait to try out the adjustable elastic! Regular one-size with the snap adjustments just aren’t customizable enough, the toggle should make it a snap for a much better fit!

  19. Dianne Braaksma Says:

    I have been using SoftBums since my little guy was a few weeks old. I love them! I have a few other cloth diapers in the rotation, but I mainly use the Softbums. I used disposable diapers on my other 2 children and now regret that I didn’t do cloth. They are so easy! I like the Softbums because of the snap out liner. It just makes more sense to me. I am excited about the pocket diaper now as well, too, mainly for the flexibility. I also love all the colors! The bright ones are my favorites!

  20. Melissa Huffines Says:

  38. Stacy Rudolph Says:

    My nanny just put my 26 lb-er in my 1 soft bum last night. She didn’t know I didn’t have it in my “day” pile of diapers. I was so tired from date night and it was late so I didn’t bother changing him. 8-9 hours later the insert was soaked but the PUL was dry! It was amazing. My 13 mthr knows how to soak thru 3 inserts including my hemp and the fact the soft bums contained it was AMAZING!!!! Plus it’s one of my favorite vibrant green diapers. The diaper I have is easy to wash, easy to use and now will be in my nightime rotation!!!!

  39. kristi Says:

    Wow, thank you for the contest.

    I wish Softbums had snaps on the outside. Otherwise, it looks like the perfect diaper.

    I’m due to deliver my fourth child at the end of the month. I dabbled in cloth diapers (just prefolds and covers) with my third, but am more committed this time around. (Got a nice stash of fuzzibunz as hand-me-downs and have invested in a smattering of one-size diapers to test out, too.) I’d love to win!

  73. Jessika Stanton Says:

    I’d probably try all three options, including a disposable insert perhaps. And if the shell doesn’t get wet, I’ll use it as an ai2 then reuse it as a pocket!

  86. Patty C. Says:

    I am soo excited to try this new line! I already love this diaper as is and now it can be a pocket!! The trimness of the diaper is amazing but I’m wondering if this will make it more bulkier? I hope not.

  87. Becky C. in KZOO Says:

    I am excited to try the dipe – – I like the elastic feature on the old one… the 3-way multi-use isn’t that impressive to me.

  92. Heather Hudson-Alouf Says:

    I love the features on the new OMNI ! the toggle sizing feature looks very promising for those of us with different sized little ones to diaper!

  93. Colette Sweet Says:

    I have all softbums for my CD system. I didn’t want a whole pile of different diapers, so I bought a whole bunch and tried out a few while i decided if I liked them. They worked very well, so I kept them all! My favorite is my nuclear pumpkin echo shell with a super dry touch pod in them!

  94. Lupe Mejia Says:

    I’m looking forward to trying the new Omni. I love a diaper with flexibility. I like the AI2 butmy husband likes pockets – we both win! Can’t wait until they release it in the super cute Softbums prints!

  95. Judi Says:

    Those are awesome! I watched the video. I don’t think the blog link is correct. It takes me to a blog that hasn’t been updated since 2007. I can imagine that if you’re doing this on your phone mistakes are bound to happen. I’m looking forward to a corrected link when you get home!

  96. Cathi Says:

    My 9 month olds are already figuring out the whole velcro thing but I’m not stressed about that. Once I get pants or something on them it is okay. I love softbums….can’t wait to get the omni.

  97. Melissa L Says:

    I want to enter on your blog, but not sure what the rules/options are, so I’m leaving a comment that I’ve watched the video and left comments on the “I Love CLoth” blog

  98. Sharon Says:

    i can’t wait to order these. They look and sound great.
