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!

    Tiffany Smith here. I love the quick n easy customization of Softbums with the leg toggles—they’re better than leg gussets once you get that perfect fit!

  24. Tricia Says:

    I don’t have any Softbums currently, but would love to try them. I think my main draw is the fact that you can snap or stuff them. I also like the ability to use from bitty baby to 40 pounder!

  76. Natalie G Says:

    What I love about Softbums: I love how you can use the shell up to 3-4 times before it needs to be washed. That makes it more cost-effective than AIOs. I also love how slim they are, my daughter doesn’t have to wear clothes that are a size bigger.

    Thank you thank you thank you!! I just followed all your links and found some great blogs, as well as entered the contest for the new OMNIs as often as I could (I even watched the video the day it came out–I was so interested! LOL) I just wanted to thank you for opening this up to so many of us moms who need to hear more about items like this. You posted the other day about using cloth wipes and we are now on day 2 of them and LOVING it! My twins actually smile, and my trash can has been empty for two days of smelly wipes! Love it!

  92. Heather Estey Says:

    I have twins (adorable girls) and we have been following your blog since their birth. We have also chosen to cloth diaper, and I love it! Most other moms think I am crazy but I think my little ones are happier in cloth than they ever were in disposables! I have followed many of your recommendations, and just want to say thanks from the bottom of my heart…you made this whole process a LOT easier–especially since my last baby is now 10 and cloth has changed a LOT since then! Blessings to you!

    I can’t wait to order the new Softbums Omni. This is my first time cloth diapering, baby #3 is actually due TODAY!! I’ve been ordering a few diapers here and there when I can and the Softbums Eco is one of the diapers in my stash just because of all the wonderful review it has recieved. I simply can’t wait to try the Omni on the new little one, I’m sure it will become one of my favorites!

  95. Rebecca G Says:

    Softbums sound better than my current system. DS wakes up every morning wet through =(. I definitely need to find a better overnight diaper.

  96. Noel Says:

    Im having my second baby in November and I think cloth diapers would be great! I dint use them with my first but would loveeeee to do it this time they would be put to GREAT use! What I love the most about the cloth diapers is the cheap ,economical impact they make on our wallets and environment!!

  97. Kristi Says:

    I am new to cloth, and this sounds great.

  98. Cassie M Says:

    4. I like the versatility of the new diaper and although I haven’t tried a AI2, I think the snap in feature would be nice.
